Sonia Hollis – Nutritional Therapist (MSc, mBANT, CNHC, NLP Practitioner)
I haven’t always been a nutritional therapist – my other occupation is as a British Sign Language interpreter. However, my direction in life dramatically changed in 2015 after losing my gorgeous twin sister, Tania, to cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). At that time I was overweight, eating unhealthy foods and drinking far too much wine!
In May 2016 I made the decision that it was my TIME to finally take my health and fitness seriously and “get back on track”. This saw me engaging the services and receiving amazing support from my PT Darren Wright (from Fitness Ambition) who helped me lose a lot of weight, become stronger, eat healthier and finally gain back control in my health and fitness, both in body and mind.
During this time, I was encouraged to return to University in 2017 and study for my MSc in Personalised Nutrition to retrain as a Nutritional Therapist and NLP Practitioner. This has been a developing journey and is close to my heart – so that my sister’s journey was not in vain. Hence the internal push I feel in myself each day to be the best I can and to help others. It keeps me close to my sister as I honestly feel she has sent me people in my path for a reason.
