Judy’s the author of the coaching classic ‘Good Question! The Art of Asking Questions to Bring about Positive Change’ and is busy with a book on wellness, also to be published by Joe Gregory of Rethink Press, who sponsor this group.
Judy has a very strong personal development background and teaching experience with a wide range of people. She has been a personal/professional life coach since 2003 and is also an NLP Practitioner and ‘Clean Facilitator’. In 2008 she took her life long love affair with the kitchen to Florida where she trained as a Hippocrates Health Educator in raw food and wellness. Since then she’s been back there to teach and has presented, run workshops, coached one to one with people’s life and/or food and wellness agendas. She’s also enjoyed herself in the kitchen creating delicious raw food dishes that look good, taste even better and that contribute to wellbeing and energy. With the help of RethinkPress she turned her scruffy notebook into her new recipe book ‘Good Raw Food Recipes’. The next notebook is filling up fast and she’s still full of enthusiasm about the benefits of this fascinating new cuisine.
