Anna Brooker BrainWorking Recursive Therapy

Anna Brooker
Therapist in Stroud

I help midlife women feel lighter, energised and body confident.

In the early summer of this year, I was recognised by the UK Enterprise Awards as the UK's Most Supportive Health and Lifestyle coach.

I am passionate about the work that I do because I see that so many women around the years leading up to menopause see an unnecessary decline in their happiness, energy levels and general health along with unwelcome changes in body composition and biohealth markers.

I believe that good health and happiness go hand in hand, so don't let life pass you by while you wait to feel better, to find the energy to do your best work, to be your best self, to do the things you love.

Together, we can take action so you can take control of your health and feel energised, lighter, vibrant and comfortable again.

Background & BrainWorking Recursive Therapy Qualifications

Having struggled with being overweight for much of my adult life, I discovered that the answer is not fad diets or punishing exercise regimes. Success comes from improving the foundations of good health - nutrition, a happy gut, movement you enjoy, stress reduction and good sleep.

Now as a Certified Health & Lifestyle Coach and BWRT Practitioner, I apply my training and experience with nutrition, blood sugar management, gut health, heart health and behavioural psychology to consistently empower people to make changes to improve and optimise both their physical and emotional resilience and health.

Professional qualifications/accreditations:

Certified Health Coach, Certified Life Coach, Registered BWRT Practitioner

Associations and memberships:

MIBWRT, Full Member - UKIHCA (UK & International Health Coaches Association

My Specialisms

I specialise in helping midlife women who feel uncomfortable in their own skin and want to:

a) Improve body composition and/or reverse menopause weight gain (particularly abdominal, visceral fat). Most clients consistently lose 1lb - 2lb in a healthy way each week.
b) Feel healthy, vibrant and confident
c) Alleviate menopause symptoms such as brain fog and hot flushes naturally.
d) Resolve digestive issues
e) Normalise health markers such as cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
f) Have more energy.

Testimonials - see more on my website

"When I sought out Anna, I was suffering from pain, fatigue and menopausal weight gain. In just 3 months, she has helped me transform my diet, get moving more and build a stronger routine of self care and stress management. Not to mention I am already down over two stone! Anna is patient and caring in her approach and loves to celebrate all successes with you as she also helps explore (with kindness) any barriers." Kelly

Approach to BrainWorking Recursive Therapy & How I Work

I have developed a step-by-step method that solves the 3 biggest problems that I see keep midlife women trapped in a body that they feel uncomfortable, unhappy (and often unwell) in.

i) Problem 1: Feeling totally overwhelmed and confused with all the (often conflicting) information about healthy food, nutrition, diets, exercise, hormones, sleep, supplements and gut health.

ii) Problem 2 - Judging yourself harshly for your choices and body shape and believing you have no willpower.

iii) Problem 3 - Feeling like a failure and demotivated because the things that you try don't work for the long term.

I offer an initial strategy and planning session coupled with biomarker health testing to identify nutritional deficiencies or hormonal imbalances that contribute to problems for midlife women struggling with body composition, digestive health and low energy.

I then offer ongoing support and coaching to ensure that you move forward every week until you reach your health and wellness goals.
