Nutrition coaching

Do you want to regain a sense of hunger and fullness, feel in control of your weight and increase your self-esteem and sense of empowerment with regard to eating?

It is more about how to eat rather than what to or what not to eat.

Nutrition Coaching at Mater Health and Wellness promotes a coaching approach to weight management and healthy eating, drawing on evidence-based strategies and promoting a ‘life-skills’ focus to facilitate lifestyle change to achieve a more comfortable and healthy weight.
A variety of packages are available, allowing clients to select from a suite of services and resources to meet their individual needs.

Dieting is like driving around with the handbrake constantly on—sooner or later the brakes wear out and the car becomes out of control.

So, how does it work?

There are four options to choose from to participate in the program, plus plenty of recharge sessions available to help you stay on track after you complete the program.

Diamond package—$750

This package includes the standard package, plus eleven recharge sessions (fifth and eleventh sessions free), a Portion Perfection Plate, a Portion Perfection Snack Bible and the If Not Dieting empowerment cards.

Gold package—$520

This package includes the standard package, plus five recharge sessions (fifth one free), a free Portion Perfection Plate and a free Portion Perfection Snack Bible.

Premium package—$450

Standard package—$325

This package includes four sessions, a free this=that food guide publication (RRP $61.40), and a personal report which details your current eating and exercise levels in comparison to national guidelines/recommendations.

  • Session one—steps to success: wellness focus to goal-setting
  • Session two—it’s all about me: making diet and exercise work for you
  • Session three—food for thought: getting in the right frame of mind
  • Session four—making a healthy dollar go further

Fifteen minute recharge sessions: available following either standard or premium package completion—$40 each. Choose as many as you like, and select topics most suited for your needs. We encourage weekly recharge sessions, so you receive the greatest benefit—buy five, get one free.
