Vessie Naydenova is a holistic nutritionist and weight lost specialist who founded her company Healthy and Confident in 2020.
Vessie studied for a B.Med.Sc. of Nutrition 20 years ago. Which she hoped to use to help hospital patients speed their recovery through their diet, unfortunately, there was not opportunity for her, as a nutritionist to work with the patients at that time.
She completed a master’s degree in accounting and pursued a successful career as an accountant, all the while she continued studying and developing her nutritional knowledge and advising friends and family about the impact of healthy eating and living.
A few years ago, Vessie took part in a health summit and realised that she really wanted to use her nutritional knowledge to help women grow and thrive, and when the company she worked at as a financial controller was sold the following month, she decided to set up her nutrition practice.
Through Healthy and Confident Vessie works mostly with women, looking at nutrition and weight loss through the lens of a whole person perspective and applies both a mind and body approach.
Vessie says of her work: “Weight loss is very interesting topic for me. I believe that weight gain is a symptom, just the tip of the iceberg. It shows that something wrong is going on in the patient/client’s life – could be emotional stress (in most cases), lack of knowledge and understanding how to give their body and mind the best care they deserve, etc.
I have created the unique 6 and 12 steps Happier & Slimmer programs. Together with my clients we check and positively change different aspects of their life, step by step, focusing on health & happiness, (never on restrictive dieting!)
We decrease the stress and add a lot of nourishing food, positivity, self-esteem and joy.”
Vessie got in touch with Inspiring Enterprise and has worked with Enterprise Specialist Susan Reviere who helped her to create her marketing plan for her business, understand important legislation as well as offering emotional support through lockdown and checking on her progress and sending helpful resources.
Vessie says “I am grateful for all the support that Susan and the Inspiring Enterprise team has given me”
Vessie is now working with clients on a 1-2-1 basis and says her happy clients are her pride and joy. She has been running online workshops through the national lockdown and has received fantastic feedback. She also has a growing facebook group where she posts weekly challenges and health tips.
She is planning on adding group slimming coaching as well as delivering ‘5 Steps to a productive and joyful day’ webinars to companies and working with communities.
Vessie would like to invite everyone to spend at least 30 mins a day focusing on their wellbeing by:
- Adding more fresh food to their meal plan,
- walking to the nearest forest, field or beach,
- appreciating little things in life,
- actively looking for beauty and positivity.
Prevention is definitely better than the cure.
When we have our health and positive attitude, we can achieve anything!
