About Me

Hi, Welcome to my world!

Reconnecting Women To Their Innate Power Through Self-Care

A catalyst for change, my joy is to help brilliant midlife women reconnect with life through radical and genuine self-care.

I have spent a lifetime in and around the world of health & fitness, in my career, as a fitness figure competitor, in business, and as a pastime. As the years, or rather, a few decades, have sped by, I have realized the value of self-care and its importance in how one thrives. My belief is it is a fundamental act of survival, a necessity and we need to stop treating it as a luxury or ‘nice to do’.

I proudly stand as a self-care warrior, an encourager & inspirer, an award-winning Women’s Health Advocate, Published Author, and International Presenter. I hosted an incredible radio show, the Women’s Power Hour, for 4 years, interviewing amazing women about health & wellbeing, having them share their trials & wins in taking care of themselves whilst the world demanded them to be ‘perfect mothers, wives, friends, colleagues and more’.

Yvonne is “yew”. Feminine variant of Yves, a saint’s name, and Ivo.

Since yew wood was used for bows, Ivo may have been an occupational name meaning “archer”.

I support, encourage, and,  inspire women to prioritise their health, one bitesize action at a time. The work is challenging as it navigates through difficult conversations, listening & observing how women’s health issues have been undermined, under- resourced & swept under the carpet, whilst also recognising & unpacking old scripts that still (sadly enough) tell women that their value is purely derived from their level of caregiving of others. The reality is, each and everyone of us has innate value, we don’t need to do anything to earn our value.

I explore the thoughts, behaviours & habits, often born out of guilt, gender expectations, and reinforced narratives, with curiosity (not judgment), helping my clients to discard the unhelpful, whilst reclaiming innate power through the creation of new patterns, restoring a sense of self, outside of societal expectations. This, in my opinion, allows women to develop a sense of self-awareness, confidence & self-belief so that they can value all of who they are and invest time in who they want to be at their best.

Apart from what I do professionally, I am a nature lover through & through!  A healing haven for mind, body & soul, I love being in it, moving through it, and remembering that nature is us & we are nature.
