What our customers say:

"When I was younger I had lots of confidence and was part of a large social group.

After some failed pregnancies, I was lucky enough to give birth to beautiful twins- a boy and a girl.

Unfortunately pregnancy took it's toll on my body - it seemed to have ballooned! I became very self-conscious. When I saw my reflection I felt disgusted with how I looked. My social life dwindled - I felt ashamed to be seen by people who had known me when I was younger and thinner!

My coaching with Cindy has enabled me to become enthusiastic about taking steps to regain my appearance and ultimately, my confidence. I have been able to rekindle my excitement about life and all that I've been missing out on.

I have lost two and a half stone so far and I'm now confident about making new friends, meeting old ones and living life to the full with my family. I haven't felt this positive in years!

I highly recommend Style and Substance Coaching to anyone who has dreams of a better life but can't motivate themselves to make their dreams come true!
