Let's Be Honest

Figuring out how to overcome unexplained health issues, feel good about your body and get slim and healthy without obsessing over calories is tricky business. 


Have you given it a go?


And trying to navigate the health world nowadays- overwhelming, frustrating and confusing to say the least, especially if those around you aren't facing the same challenges.


I have heard story after story from individuals who have faced health complications and been back and forth to their doctor, had multiple tests performed and been prescribed a cocktails of medications for diagnostic labels they don't understand. And after all said and done they still don't feel any better.


So here's the plan.... 

It's time to create a customised strategy for a healthier happier you. It's time to ditch the cookie-cutter one size fits all approach and begin to understand what is going on in your body. That's why I've developed toolkits, courses and resources 

(which can be customised) to help you start to create a body and life you love. 

I understand that your health and happiness doesn't begin and end with eliminating symptoms or dropping a few pounds. It's the energy to give every day your all, the confidence of knowing you can take care of yourself and to live life on your terms.


Let's begin the journey to a whole new you.

“Thank goodness for Christy Fergusson, a true beacon of light for young women ready to take control of their health and their bodies”."

I Grew Up Battling with ill Health....

......and ongoing chronic illness. I often joke that as a teenager I collected diagnostic labels the way more teenage girls collected shoes:


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Endometriosis, Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, Depression, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Cystic Acne (to name few). 


To top it off, I spent years struggling with my weight and relationship with food. Throwing up in bathrooms, starving myself and feeling confused about my body. By the age of 16, I realised that if I didn't start figuring out for myself, I was never going to get better.   


So I put on my big girl shoes and decided to revamp my collection with something new - qualifications. I went on to train as a Doctor of Psychology and Chartered Psychologist. 

I set up The Food Psychologist as a one-stop shop to help educate others on what I've learned and hopefully make the journey to wellness a little easier..
