My name is Amanda Jay - Nutritionist, Coach, Qualified Beauty Therapist, and most recently student of Kinesiology.

Alongside all the above, I bring an immense amount of personal experience when it comes to mental health, weight/health battles, domestic violence, and healing from trauma.

I take a holistic approach to nutrition and wellbeing to help individuals and families flourish.

Holistic means to look at the whole. To look at the signs and symptoms alone, without looking at the whole picture, may just mask what is going on.

Looking at how the body systems work together and the impact an individual's lifestyle and environment has on their health, can provide a better understanding of the root cause. Knowing the root cause and making appropriate changes, can create better overall health outcomes.

A holistic approach to health and wellbeing recognises that not every "BODY" is the same, we are all unique and there is no one diet or 'magic pill that can fix or cure. Very often there is an imbalance, inflammation, stored emotional trauma, dysfunction, or nutritional deficiencies, underlying the physical signs and symptoms preventing optimal health and wellbeing. 

When looking at the whole body, I look at nutrition about the other core factors of health: Lifestyle, exercise and movement, sleep, environment, relationships, social interaction, genetics, trauma and so much more. 

I take time to understand the client and their current diet/nutritional intake, needs, goals, ailments, symptoms, conditions, past trauma, likes, dislikes, lifestyle, support networks, and environment, to tailor a health program that's perfect for them.

Whether it be weight loss, weight gain, hormonal imbalances, fertility concerns, mental health condition, trauma healing, or general wellbeing each treatment plan is individualised to suit each client optimising success. 



Together we will discuss your current nutrition habits, thought patterns, emotions, environment, and relationships.

Let me guide you to uncovering what changes and healing are needed.

Not one person is the same and neither are your sessions. 


  • Intuitive Eating, trauma & The Body, weight loss, how to Read Food Labels, healing Your Gut, vitamin/supplement Education, cravings, and learning about our mind, body connection.

Happy Clients

Amanda has been amazing at helping me with my Thyroid problems. She explained things step by step and recommended a site that provides alcohol free supplements which are amazing. Doing a vegan diet scared me and the idea of no cheese! but having Amanda guiding me made things that much easier. I got my results regarding my thyroid too, it was sitting around 5.7 and average should be around 3, that alone is an achievement.  I got compliments on my skin being clearer and I actually wasn't breaking out for once! It's not often you come across someone who genuinely cares, Amanda is one that does. Thank you so much for your help! :)

Who am I? I have been working very hard for almost 3 years to heal my trauma, work on my mental health, find out who I am and what I want most out of this life. Like many, my journey began with prescription medicine numbing and masking my feelings of anxiety and depression along with therapy. Now don’t get me wrong I’m not saying these things don’t work but I am saying there is another path. A path that has taken me on this ride to who I am now, a ride that has given back my hunger for life, one that peeled back so many layers and helped heal my mind, body, and spirit.

8 years ago, I was in my first ever rental with a belt from my dressing gown in my wardrobe contemplating suicide. It was late at night wet and cold, my 3month old son was asleep in his cot, my partner of 3 years had just left once again, choosing his addiction. I sat alone in my wardrobe broken. A million negative thoughts ran through my mind I couldn’t shut off. My family had cut all communication because I had taken him back once again not understanding the power a domestic abusive partner can have over someone. I was suffering from undiagnosed post-natal depression and severe anxiety. All this at the age of 23. How had I got here? Me, this strong girl who had always been the tough one, the successful one, at the age of 20 I ran the highest-earning store for a retailer, my life was great… Right!? Or had I just suppressed all my trauma and now it was finally coming back to the surface?

Writing this I still cry remembering how it felt that night, the pain, the loneliness, and complete despair in the depth of the depression, the feeling that nothing will ever get better and this was it, this was all that life had for me. I had been abandoned by everyone that I had ever loved. Within seconds of making a decision that would end with me no longer being here, I heard my son crying from his bedroom and it switched my train of thought, I couldn’t leave him alone here with anyone, as everyone had done to me. If it wasn’t for my son waking up at that very moment, I still believe I would have ended my life that very night.

Over the next 8 years I continued to battle with my depression and anxiety never being formally diagnosed given treatment or support, my family would say I had ADD or bipolar and my partner would tell me I was emotional and crazy. I was in a volatile relationship that was emotionally, physically, and financially abusive. The lifestyle he was leading brought along so much danger that had me constantly on edge. Between my partner and my family, I was on this rollercoaster of abandonment wondering with every decision I made would they abandon me.  One minute they would be in my life and the next minute he would be off on a drug/crime bender not answering calls for days sometimes weeks, my family was the same I could never meet anyone’s expectations (this was a struggle I faced with my family my entire life), if I left him I would have my family back but with conditions and even then it wasn’t a healthy environment for me to be in. This continued till our 10year relationship finally ended nearly 3 years ago, it was a constant battle between a toxic relationship and a toxic family.

It wasn’t until 5 years ago after the sudden loss of my mother when I was 3 months pregnant with my daughter Eden, I was finally diagnosed and treated for my mental illness. I was diagnosed with prenatal depression, which was treated with prescription medicine followed by therapy fortnightly. I found the therapy helped me to offload any overthinking and gave me an outlet to vent frustrations but didn’t get to the root of any of my trauma from my childhood and relationship. Zoloft (prescription drug) just masked my feelings and in my experience helped me tolerate my partner's abuse. I remember one night after we had split again after finding out he was using ice again and cheating with multiple sex workers, I was 9 months pregnant now and he had turned up to my house once again late at night crying, telling me he was on the run from the police and he was going to jail. I had no reaction and he yelled ‘’do you even care?’’ I had no feelings no reaction. I wasn’t sad or happy I was just blah. I felt dead inside completely emotionless. When I gave birth, I decided I didn’t want to be medicated, I wanted to feel again.

For the following year and a half, my depression and anxiety were back and I pushed any healing or growth aside as I now was in and out of survival mode. Once again, I had been completely manipulated once again into thinking any evidence of cheating was a lie or miss read and any possibility of future relapse was squashed. We had been on and off together for 10 years, in this time he had been in and out of prison, he became more and more violent and aggressive causing child protection to permanently remove my children and me from our rental. I was set in survival mode. Surviving for these kids was all I knew.

After being put into protective housing my children and I began to relax a little, we felt safe. He didn’t know where we lived. We had a safety plan permanently in place. I was supported by an amazing support service Wayss which gave us access to food banks and clothing helping us get back on our feet financially. Through ways, I was connected with a counselor not only for me but for my son Noah. By my 10th session, I had unblocked a lot of traumatic memories from my childhood but still wasn’t given any tools that would help me heal or assist with the lack of sleep.

It wasn't until I took the holistic approach to heal and health till my life started to take a turn for the better. This is where my journey and passion for healing and self-growth began. I dove deep into my trauma and learned how to self-calm, meditate, sleep techniques, Reiki, turned off my flight, or fight calming my nervous system. My passion for holistic healing led me to study for a diploma in nutrition. 

Before taking the step to heal mind, body, and spirit, I walked through my entire life as a complete impostor. I never knew who I was therefore my personality would change with each environment depending on who I was with. I always adapted to what I thought they wanted me to be, forever changing who I was but never really knowing who I was at the core. Over the past years, I have been reintroduced to myself and learned to love myself entirely. That in itself is special. People go their entire lives never knowing what it feels like to love themselves. Self-love is your first love and until you truly love and celebrate yourself you cannot take pleasure in life the way you should. This is not something you want to go a lifetime never experiencing. 

My goal is to guide clients to the life they deserve. Or maybe your journey isn’t so much about becoming anything, maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t you, so you can be whom you were meant to be in the first place. Are you ready to surrender and take the journey you have been waiting your entire life for?
