My Background

My career in the NHS began in the 1980s and I have worked in accident and emergency departments around the UK. After settling in Whitstable 21 years ago, I worked in local hospital outpatient clinics and more recently as a school nurse in a boarding school. 

 Because of my keen interest in the relationship between health and lifestyle I have continued to develop my wellbeing skills throughout my career and completed my health coaching course. Alongside this I attended a Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine course in London and I am a member of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine.

I also have a degree in health studies and continue to keep my practice up to date through reading, attending courses and conferences.

My Approach

I am able to connect with all age groups and give each person the opportunity to assess their health. Identifying the changes they would like to make, giving appropriate support with the aim of improving  long-term physical and mental wellbeing. 

 

Taking the opportunity to join a wellbeing introductory workshop or having a one-to-one session will allow you to explore your health, identify what influences your life choices, your personality type and then have the support and knowledge to make any positive habit changes and achieve better mental and physical health.

 

I offer the opportunity to have a free 30 minute consultation, to see if I can help you and what we would be able to achieve together.
