About Lauren Dyche
Certified Integrative Health & Life Coach
Certified Counselling Practitioner
Hi friend! My mission is to empower people to shed old habits that no longer serve them in order to grow into a happier, healthier and more authentic lifestyle curated to fit their goals and desires.
I’m a Certified Integrative Health & Life Coach who also is a coffee-loving, animal-crazy lady trying to figure out this whole adulting thing while actually being happy in the process. I am also a Certified Counseling Practitioner. In the last five years I've evolved my passion for teaching to include helping and mentoring others on how to live a life of fulfillment through wellness, not through deprivation.
Taking control of your health is a huge step to freedom and fulfillment. I can't wait to work with you on your journey!
My Journey to Health
Every Story has a Beginning
By the time I was well into my 20's, I realized that I had achieved every life goal I had set out for myself. I had graduated college, was working as a middle school teacher and was married to a wonderful man. But really I was living a life with fear-based decision making and my health was starting to be impacted. I spent three years seeking medical help and doing over an hour of cardio a day, but my weight continued to rise till eventually I weighed almost 200 pounds.
I knew my health, marriage and career were deteriorating, and that something was wrong. I was feeling defeated until I realized that they were all connected. Over the next year and a half, I stopped seeking medical advice and went back to basics. I began eating foods that fueled my body, took up a daily exercise and weight training routine, began seeking help from a therapist for mental health and started focusing on self care. I became infatuated with learning about health and wellness. Eventually I was able to loose over 50 pounds, restore and rejuvenate my marriage to a level of fulfillment I didn't know was possible with my husband and start to recalibrate my life.
Along the way, I recognized that my passion for teaching and coaching was evolving. I want to empower and encourage others along their journey to health and wellness. I went back to school at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and received my Certification for Health Coaching.
