Rochez O’Grady

Rochez has a holistic approach to helping individuals on their journey to health. She has a passion for approaching every person that comes to see her as unique. She has specialised by incorporating the most up to date tools into her practice.

She specialises in Personalised Gene Based Nutrition and Health, mindful eating practices, weight management, sports nutrition, lifestyle conditions, GUT health, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), IBS, intolerances and pregnancy nutrition.

She has run a number of corporate health workshops and has worked with the South African Womens’ National Hockey Team and given a number of workshops with University and School Hockey Teams. She has also been featured on TV, radio and written magazine articles.

“I love being able to apply everything I’ve learnt and help individuals treat the root cause, to optimise their health. I have a holistic approach backed by science based nutrition to help clients achieve their personal goals. Everyone is an individual.”

“I value keeping a balance in my life and being healthy is a big part of that for me. Helping others to do the same is incredibly rewarding. I love healthy food and coming up with creative new recipes. I enjoy being active – having an exercise routine and being outdoors. Focusing on having fun, making sure you laugh enough and giving yourself self care underpins longevity.”

Sarah Gouws

Food and nutrition have always been a big part of her life. She grew up in a family where cooking delicious meals was a real passion. She loves the fact that healthy food can be tasty but also has the power to change people’s lives. Sarah enjoys cooking and developing recipes that make the healthier choices easy to prepare and delicious to eat.

Sarah applies the principles of mindful eating during her consultations for sustainable behaviour change in weight management and has embarked on the journey in Personalised Gene Based Nutrition and Health.

She is also a keen trail runner, qualified pilates instructor as well as a new mom – using this background in her holistic approach to health. Being a new mom has sparked a new found passion for childhood nutrition. She’ll be able to give you practical tips on how to wean your baby onto home-made, easy to prepare wholesome foods.

Nutrition is a wonderful tool to improve health, help manage and prevent illness. Sarah practices this in Kingsbury Hospital where she sees patients in ICU, medical and surgical wards.

Sarah has also written a number of magazine articles and appeared on TV.
