The Food and Thought Program

Brought to you by Anne Mühlethaler and Neil Bridgeman


We live most of our lives on autopilot. You may notice when you leave the house, you start thinking of something, and suddenly you’ve arrived at your destination and haven’t taken in any of the life that was happening around you.

What would life be like if you were fully present for it? If you could bring your focused attention to what you want, whether it’s towards your loved ones, your job, sports, or even your holidays.

Perhaps there is a change you’ve been meaning to make in your life, and you seek to find more energy, purpose, motivation and a sense of wellbeing?

Or maybe you’ve suffered from stress, anxiety, weight issues or maybe

even physical pain, which you understand could be treated with a change of lifestyle but are finding it near impossible to figure who to turn to to get to the other side?

Cultivating presence and awareness, as well as self-inquiry, are a common thread between coaching and mindfulness, and when combined with nutritional therapy, clients can instill life-long, sustainable wellbeing and vitality.

Find your inner fire and make the lasting changes you want to see in your life.

Many of us suffer from mental health challenges, anxiety, or from chronic stress. Nutritional therapy can support a healthier mind balance. We now know how much of our moods are affected by what we eat. To calm the stressed mind, or focus when anxious, we need to go deeper than just focusing on diet. That’s where mindfulness and coaching come into play. Combined, the three modes of therapy can have a profound impact.

If you have unexplained chronic pain or other digestive and physical issues, you’ll need to evaluate nutritional challenges that may be part of the unease or disease. Typically, these people are ready to get to the root of the problem, BUT… making changes is HARD. Most of us fail at implementing long-term positive change because we’re not sufficiently motivated, or rather we aren’t in contact with said motivation.

This is where coaching helps you find your own answers. We’ll guide you towards a clarity of vision and help you connect to your purpose in a way that helps effect lasting change.

Neil and I have a lot in common. Or let’s start by saying we have a lot of friends in common, having ‘grown up’ in the luxury industry, myself as a business and communication executive at Christian Louboutin and Neil as a marketing executive at NET-A-PORTER and Mr Porter.

We have both retrained outside of our expertise: me as a mindfulness teacher and coach, and Neil as a naturopathic nutritional therapist. We also continue to study, deeply passionate about our new careers. Whilst I am based in Geneva and Neil in London, we do most of our work remotely, so the idea of combining our skills to support our clients to tackle their challenges and get to their objectives felt like a natural step forward.


Neil spent 20 years working as a marketing and communications executive in the fashion and tech industries.

Despite all the glitz and glamour from a career in fashion, Neil’s mental and physical health was far from glitzy. After a series of mental health issues, sports injuries, and poor immune resilience treated successfully using nutrition and lifestyle medicine, Neil began a new path by studying Nutritional Therapy at the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.

With a lifelong passion for food, nutrition and the outdoors, Neil believes that no-nonsense, uncomplicated, and personalised nutritional and lifestyle interventions can restore, revive and embed lifelong change and wellbeing.

A graduate of the College of Naturopathic Medicine, Neil is also a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council as well as the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners and regularly attends accredited training programs alongside completing his MSc.

As well as being an experienced business consultant and communications expert, Anne is a certified mindfulness & meditation teacher (and 250 RYT yoga teacher) who has studied with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield (MMTCP), Annie Carpenter, Oren Jay Sofer and several other wonderful teachers.

She combines these two worlds of consultancy and mindfulness to bring her clients a rounded view of the world and a sense of calm and optimism about the challenges they face.

Anne continues to study and is currently enrolled for a second year with the Nalanda Institute in the Contemplative Psychotherapy Program, a training integrating mindfulness & compassion practices in Buddhist psychology with evidence-based Western neuropsychology.

She was inspired to train and certify as a coach after experiencing first-hand the transformational effect of powerful coaching at a time when she was in great need of it. She deeply believes that coaching is incredibly effective and can drive meaningful change in people’s lives. She chose to certify with master coach, sociologist and best-selling author Martha Beck. She now holds a certification as a Wayfinder Life Coach and is currently training to be certified with the International Coaching Federation.

Anne is passionate about teaching meditation and pranayama and, aside from running AVM Consulting, she also hosts the podcasts Out of the Clouds and Out of the Clouds Waking Heart.
