Body & Soul
""I asked Lucie to deliver a session on the benefits of health and nutrition to a cohort of young adults, as a means of supporting them on their journey as they manage the impact of HIV on their health. Healthy eating, regular exercise and motivation are all immediate challenges many of these young people face on a daily basis and Lucie immediately made such challenges accessible and approachable.With minimal guidance, Lucie pitched a session which was engaging, relevant and appropriate for the multitude of needs in the group. Her authentic approach to the physical and mental challenges she herself faces on a daily basis engaged the group, and her positive and motivational mindset towards the goals she sets herself resonated strongly with these young adults as mindset is crucial to the obstacles they themselves face.Lucie provided nutritional tips and recipes which were quick and easy to follow, created and got involved in a mini workout for the group which had all participants moving (even in their jeans and skirts!) and helped these young adults to believe that a healthy lifestyle is not as insurmountable as they might have imagined. For a group whose disclosure about their lifestyles is built on foundations of safety and trust, Lucie's confident yet down to earth facilitation gained their trust and respect immediately. We are excited to have her back for other members soon! Thank you Lucie.""
