Meet your guide - Fran
Hello I’m Fran, partner of Real Wales Tours on the Wellness Retreats. I’m a qualified Pilates instructor and dietitian, passionate about helping people to look after their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing through holistic nutrition and movement practice.
My approach is to help people tune in to their own needs, improve body awareness and find intuitive and positive ways to care for themselves. I hope for my clients to enjoy feelings of wellness, free from pressure, guilt or fear. My ethos is to empower you to find those health enhancing behaviours that are right for you, sustainable and realistic for you to take forward beyond the duration of the retreat.
I qualified as a dietitian in 2005, and have had a wide range of experience, practicing in the NHS, working with families in areas of deprivation, and across all stages of life, from early years to end of life. Following the birth of my children, and going through a challenging time as a solo parent, I discovered a new approach to my own wellbeing through nutrition and physical activity.
I love all kinds of adventures; I once rode solo across Ireland on a bike. I live in south wales with my identical twin daughters and love being outdoors, going to a cosy cafe, walking, and active adventures. I recently tried paddleboarding and am hooked!
