Certified Health & Wellbeing Coach, Sian Stimson, is passionate about helping you to achieve your own brand of healthy living, that is unique to YOU and your family.
Leading a busy life, trying to manage the juggle, being all things to all people, plus trying to find time to keep track of your own health… Sian knows all about the reality of life!
Sian is a mum of two boys, a wife, business owner, keen trail runner, volunteer, and holistic health coach. Her own health journey was reignited in 2016, just as she turned 40. It was time to reclaim her health after having spent a decade working long hours and raising her two boys. Sian had forgotten how good it felt to be focused on herself instead of always being there and doing things for others.
Over the past few years, Sian has re-focused her energy from a successful corporate career, into helping others find their way to better health. Sian has a positive, pragmatic and down-to-earth approach that’s focused on helping clients to identify a practical approach to health that is right for them, their body and lifestyle.

The Kite Program is a wellbeing and professional development solution offering in-the-moment support that is customised to your journey, and delivered via an app. There are two apps available:
1. The Kite App for Mums
This offers 14 mini programs, affectionately call “Kites”. These are on a range of personal development topics that are specific challenges of mum life. These include sleep, stress management, relationships, mum guilt and coping with the juggle – to name just a few. There is even a “mum friendly” technology detox. You create your own journey, stopping and starting Kites as you wish – it’s as easy as that!
Upon download, you’re offered a 7-day free trial, with no automatic rollover. You will be notified your free trial has ended and prompted to purchase if you wish to continue your journey. The Kite App will be a one off payment (for around the cost of a paperback book) for full unlimited access. Once you purchase, it is yours to own and experience as you wish, just like a beautiful book.
2. The Kite Support App
Kite Support is a new and unique app that offers access to wellbeing content developed by experts, in response to Covid-19. It has been designed to give wellbeing support, and offers essential skills to adapt and develop resilience during times of change and uncertainty.
Subscriptions to Kite Support are for one year, and allows you to access learning modules that interest you, at your own pace (see the full list here). The learning modules cover: ‘personal wellbeing’, ‘social wellbeing’, ‘learning through change’, and ‘new ways of working.’
