About Wellbeing Lifelong…
As a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, my ambition is to help my clients become the healthiest version of themselves. My work and values are focused on prioritising solid, long-term change as opposed to quick but momentary results, by teaching and supporting my clients to implement the health improvements they always wanted, but struggled to achieve.
My overall focus is therefore to ensure my clients gain the knowledge and skills linked to their health goals, which they can implement in their own routines and adapt to their own personalities in order to become – at the very least – a healthier of themselves. And for these changes to last for the rest of their lives based upon our work together.

In a life story (if you wanna know more about me)
My name is Eva Fernandez Ortiz. Barcelona-born (1986) and London-settled (2009), I guess Wellbeing Lifelong is a project that defines myself and my life path quite accurately.
Since I was a child, I’ve always been interested in health and wellbeing, I still remember advocating for my dad to quit smoking as a 10-year-old!
My teenage, self-discovery years pushed me to read and learn about psychology and relationships. This was an inner interest of mine that I still hold today, and that led me to complete a one-year course in Humanistic Counselling Skills at the Gestalt Centre in London (2015), and another as a Listener Volunteer with the Samaritans Charity (2014).
My university years, both in Spain (2004-09) and in the UK (2009-10), taught me the ins and outs of Media, with writing being the hook that dragged me to study Journalism. After that, my professional career kicked off in the world of content marketing and SEO… to currently settle into the exciting and ever-growing industry of Digital Marketing and Virtual Events.
Then in 2015, I discovered yoga. For me, the glue that mixed it all together, mind and body. The discipline that helped me discover how a physical practise could also calm the mind and provide answers, and vice-versa; as I tried to explain in the post What do you mean by “Be Like Yoga”?
Reaching my 30s (and sitting in an office for too many hours), made me want to learn more about nutrition and ways of taking better care of my body. A life-long passion turned then into something solid when I completed my Diploma on Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching in September 2020.
And here I am now! I hope you enjoy your visit to Wellbeing Lifelong, where I ultimately wish to share my love for health and wellbeing in the blog, as well as to offer my knowledge and services as a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach.
I hope we can connect somehow – either in person or virtually – and that you also find answers to some of your questions, either body or mind related.
