What do I do?

I am a Portfolio GP. I am grateful that I have been able to create a diverse working-life that allows me to pursue my passions and dreams. Here are some of the different roles I have:

Lead GP for Lifestyle Medicine and Wellness at OneMedicalGroup
I am working across both NHS and the private sectors to set up lifestyle medicine clinics and wellness centres.

I am a GP and have over 7 years’ experience of working in the NHS. I also have a degree in Sport and Exercise Science. I am trained in contraception including implants and coils (DFSRH) and have 3 years experience of working in a Sexual Health Clinic.

Health Coach
As a health coach I am here to help you build healthy habits that align with how you want to feel every day. I can help you see life through fresh eyes and support you in achieving the health lifestyle you want.

Regional Director British Society of Lifestyle Medicine (BSLM)
This is a voluntary role for the BSLM. Please go to the website for further information about this important and fast-growing movement: https://bslm.org.uk/

TV Doctor
I co-presented the Channel 4 series ‘How to Stay Well’ which aired in mid-2017 and have now joined the presenting team of Channel 4’s successful series, ‘Food Unwrapped’.

“I am PASSIONATE about LIFESTYLE MEDICINE, HEALTH AND WELLNESS. I want to help you live your healthiest and happiest life”.

What is My Vision?

Our day to day life is made up of routines and habits. We create our own routines and habits based on our beliefs and our beliefs inform the decisions we make around health. The problem is that many of us have become “comfortable” with our daily routines even though we know deep down we are not happy with the way we feel in our minds and bodies. We end up feeling stuck. Then the health problems start such as feeling low, stressed, gaining weight, diabetes and other chronic disease …the list is endless. Although we know the way out is to make changes, it really isn’t that easy and that’s because we are creatures of habit! The good news is- it doesn’t have to be like this! You can live a different life, you can choose a healthier path and you have the power within you to be able to do this.

My vision is to empower you to make long-lasting positive changes to the way you live your life by replacing negative routines and behaviours which are detrimental to health and wellness with healthier new routines and habits. As your Health Coach and Doctor, I can support and challenge you to listen to your mind and body, identify your values and motivations, and transform your health and wellness goals into action. I want to help you live your healthiest and happiest life.
