Empower Intensive is a deep dive intensive one-to-one half-day experience.  

Are you ready to take fast action and make a change? This 4 hour intensive day is designed to help the health savvy woman feeling overwhelmed and stuck, transform their relationship with their body fast.  

After this half-day intensive session, you will not only understand how to transform your health and your relationship with your body, you will also have a customised programme designed to help you get there.  



Prior to our half day intensive you will receive three powerful Empower wellness tools designed to help you understand your health and body issues deeper.  

These include my Comprehensive Health Check, Discover The Triggers deep dive exercise and a Seven Day Wellness Diary.  

Together these will provide you with an opportunity to explore what is going on for you and provide me with the valuable insights I need to develop your customised treatment programme.


This powerful health assessment will help you pinpoint where your current underlying biochemical imbalances lie, so you can begin to address those specific areas.  

This transformational tool has been especially created by me, to help you achieve a better understanding of your symptoms. This will provide me with valuable insights so I can develop your customised programme.


Ever wondered how your health issues all began? Have you ever thought to yourself “What has caused this?” Identify what led you to where you are now, with my Discover The Triggers exercise.  

Discover The Triggers will help you discover what events and circumstances could have triggered the onset of your symptoms. This will reveal insights you can’t even imagine.


One of the best ways to create long lasting change is to become mindful on how you're currently living. To help you become more conscious of your daily habits, diet and lifestyle choices you will be invited to complete a 7-day wellness diary.  

This helps you become more accountable and will provide me with important insights into your current diet and lifestyle.

Empower Intensive Session with Dr Christy 

Empower Intensive is a one on one online coaching session, that takes place over 4 consecutive hours (over Skype or phone). This session is similar to three months of coaching rolled into a detailed and comprehensive 4 hour experience.

 If you have a burning desire to learn it all in one day, want to start transforming your health and body “yesterday”, are ready to start figuring out what is going wrong, re-ignite that spark and create a solid approach for transformation over a 4 hour time frame; Empower Intensive is for you!  

Following the consultation you will receive a copy of the transcript for the entire session. This will allow you to go back through anything we covered in your own time.


Following our Empower Intensive session I will develop a customised treatment protocol for you.  

This will include targetted diet, supplement, lifestyle and testing recommendations designed to help you transform your health. This is personalised to you, based on your medical history, current diet, lifestyle and health goals.  

Each customised programme takes time and expertise to develop which is why I only offer this to my private coaching clients. I develop this based on everything we cover during our Empower Intensive session.


Did you know that the foods you eat could be contributing to your current health and weight issues? As part of Empower you will receive a customised dietary prescription.  

This will be specifically designed for you and will take into consideration any contra-indications with medications, current health conditions and food sensitivities. This also includes an example one-day menu plan.


No more head scratching when you visit the health food store, as part of Empower you will receive a customised supplement prescription.  

 This will be specifically designed for you and will take into consideration any contra-indications with medications, current health conditions and sensitivities. This will consist of specific supplement recommendations.


Chances are your lifestyle and habits could be playing a role in your current ailments. Together we will identify and overcome what is holding you back.  

As part of Empower you will receive customised lifestyle and cleansing recommendations. What lifestyle shifts could radically change your health?


If you are on medication, it is vital that you avoid foods and supplements that can be contraindicated. Doctors rarely look at this.  

I have a sophisticated database with all the medications on it, so I can tell if you need additional nutrients that particular medications may be creating a deficiency in, and also which foods and nutrients you need to avoid. This is so vital in your treatment approach and infact can be potentially dangerous, if not done.


You must get to the root cause. Once you have pinpointed the factors which could be contributing to your current health issues you need to start investigating these at a biochemical level.  

 The best way to do this is through functional medicine testing. As part of Empower, I will provide you will detailed recommendations about further tests, which could help to uncover what is going on.

1 Week Email Support

 Also included in this package is 1 week of email support following the session. This will allow you to get any additional support you need once you have received your customised programme.


I created the Empower Intensive for women who are passionate about overcoming their health and body issues on their terms and feel they would benefit from an intensive coaching experience.  

As with all my private coaching packages, you must first apply for a free Women, Wisdom, Wellness Strategy Session. This session will allow us to figure out if we are a good fit for eachother and if Empower Intensive is right for you. I offer the Women, Wisdom, Wellness Strategy Session for free because I want to give you an opportunity to discover how coaching could benefit you, without you having to commit to a program upfront.  

PLease be aware however, that I only work with a very limited number of private clients due to the time and commitment involved in creating customised programs and providing personalised coaching.  

 As you will see I am very upfront about my prices. If your hesitation is price, then I would ask that you please, do not apply for private coaching. I can only offer private coaching to those who are willing and able to invest in their health. If you aren't ready to invest the time and money required for private coaching, then one of my group coaching programs or online self-study courses may be a better option for you. These are incredibly comprehensive and high value. I have designed these to help teach you how to create your own customised treatment protocols, to support your health on your terms without having to invest in private coaching.  

Money should of course, should never be an obstacle. If you find yourself saying, “I just can’t afford that”, often that means it is just not a priority to you at the moment and that’s ok.
