Circle of Care is how to manage PCOS

Circle of Care

The circle of care enables us to gently and simply address the drivers of your polycystic ovary syndrome symptoms. Our method weaves together 5 areas essential to health; nourish, calm, sleep, connect, and move. All these areas of our life impact the balance of different systems in our bodies. Our body is a series of interconnected systems, what happens in one area may effect another area. We aim to gradually install balance to all the areas in a way that you can maintain, at a pace that works for you, and that prioritises your goals.

What to eat with PCOS


Nourishing your body is key to managing your PCOS. Inflammation and insulin resistance can both be affected by how you nourish yourself, and both of these health concerns can affect your stress levels and your sleep. When we are nourished, we ensure our body has the nutrients it needs to function at its best. It helps us to reduce inflammation, build hormones, regulate our menstrual cycles, correct imbalances, and manage our weight; as well as working wonders for reducing the impact of stress and improving the quality of our sleep.

We show you how to make meals that gives you body all the nutrients it needs, and keeps your blood sugars balanced, reduces cravings, stabilises your moods, keeps you satisfied, energised, and helps you to heal. Our approach to nutrition is enjoyable and fits into your life, whatever your situation.


Bringing calm into your life is key in your polycystic ovary syndrome management. Stress can lead to problems with our moods, hormones, energy levels, menstrual cycles, digestion, immunity, and our weight. It can increase blood sugar, inflammation, and decreases the activity of our thyroid hormones.

What does this mean to us? It means we can gain stubborn weight around the middle, IBS can flare, we feel tired and lack drive, it may be hard to concentrate, we feel run down, our periods become unpredictable, and our sleep starts to suffer. Facial hair can develop, hair may start to thin on your scalp, and you may have acne. Its a long list of unwanted symptoms!

Through calm you learn techniques to help manage your stress and anxiety, and help to bring balance to your system.

How to manage stress with PCOS
Sleep and polycystic ovary syndrome


We all have a good idea of how awful sleep deprivation is. Our motivation to look after ourselves is practically non-existent when we are tired. We stop nourishing ourselves or moving, our mood becomes irritable or low, and our negative self-talk can increase. Sleep effects every part of our well-being, and our stress, diet, and bedtime habits affect the quality of our rest. Poor quality sleep is linked to insulin resistance, weight gain, inflammation, anxiety, and depression. Our blood sugar can become imbalanced, leading to increased hunger and cravings. Sleep also helps to regulate the hormones needed for ovulation. Nurturing ourselves and learning ways to embrace or improve our sleep helps our body to repair and heal, and it helps calm our system.


Whether its spiritual, in faith, with friends, with pets, with the world around us or even with ourselves, connection soothes and relaxes our system, and is often underappreciated.  Science has shown connection can help us to make the feel-good hormones that help keep us calm and more resilient to stress. 

Relationships can be a source of connection and joy, but they can also be hard, so we help support you in managing this. We also help with your connection to yourself,  as your mindset and self-compassion link into physical health through your stress response.

PCOS and relaxation
Exercise and PCOS


Movement helps us to sleep, manage inflammation, balance our hormones, and lower our insulin levels and can help us to manage our mood. Movement doesn’t just refer to HIIT workouts and long runs. Yoga has been shown to help reduce androgens which are high in PCOS. Yoga can help build strength, reduce weight around the middle, relieve anxiety, lift mood, lower blood pressure, ease symptoms such as headaches, improve feelings of fullness, decrease binge eating, and increase body acceptance. We explore ways for you to move more naturally through your day or in the gym. We are not interested in punishing exercise routines, more a way to improve your wellness overall in a way you enjoy.
