Dr Helen Lawal | About Helen

What do I do?

I am a GP and a Health Coach. I am grateful that I have been able to create a diverse working-life that allows me to pursue my passions as a career. I practice mindfulness, meditation, exercise (yoga, HIIT and weight training) and nutrition in my personal life which I discovered as part of her own personal health journey, advocating these to my patients as part of a lifestyle medicine approach. I like to start each day with a meditation and an avocado 😊

Here are some of the different roles I have:
