This complete step-by-step system takes the guesswork out of managing PCOS and gets rid of the one size fits all approach, instead we work with YOUR needs.


Stage 1 starts with your needs in mind & begins with a one-on-one individual assessment (nutrition, bloods & lifestyle) & a personalized PCOS BOSS plan.


The more you understand the easier PCOS gets. Stage 2 focuses on NUTRITION knowledge gain with supplement reviews & personal prescription recommendations based on your requirements.


PCOS is not just nutrition, stage 3 we work on the lifestyle factors impacting your health, stress & mood management, exercise & sleep optimization.

What Claire’s Patients have to say..

“I signed up with Claire in January 2017, after hearing about her from a friend, as I needed help to lose weight (I was 30 kg overweight) and start a sustainable healthy eating programme. Up until that point I felt overwhelmed by all the advice and theories and diets out there, and was in a pattern of starting a restrictive diet every Monday morning and self-loathing by Wednesday each week as I couldn’t sustain it.

Claire was the one voice I chose, she made the overwhelming task manageable and, with her qualifications and experience, gave me the confidence to trust the process and myself. The unique meal plan and advice tailored to my unique needs as a preferences is key. The relationship was one of honesty and I so appreciate all the advice and individual focus of the programme she created for me.” – CATHY MUNRO
