I work with women who want to improve their diet, health or lose weight

I use an evidenced based approach to nutrition - fact over fad!

I support my clients to loose weight without fad diets or extreme calorie restriction

I will show you that you can still enjoy the foods you love!

I consider all aspects of your lifestyle including sleep, work and physical activity

My approach is based on behaviour change science including motivational interviewing alongside transformational coaching

I currently work with clients online via a video consultation platform

My Scope Of Practice

I am a Health Coach and qualified with the Health Coach Institute (HCI) and I am a Member of the UK Health Coaches Association.

I am insured and both my insurance certificate and my qualification certificates are available to view if required.

PLEASE NOTE: I am a qualified doctor but do not work clinically with health coaching clients. I do not take a medical history, examination, diagnose or prescribe as part of my health coaching practice. I am unable to give out medical advice.

I am not a dietician so if you have significant health problems such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease or cancer I will ask you to seek out the advice of a dietician who is better qualified to help you.

I am not a therapist or a counsellor, so if I feel that this is what you need at this point in your journey I will offer you advice on how you can access this elsewhere.
