Description:

I have supported both private and NHS clients over the last 19 years across a range of specialties.

For some, change is forced upon them due to a diagnosis of chronic kidney disease or diabetes. Often what they need is an ear for their fears, reassurance, education around their disease and medications and guidance towards sustainable and affordable change.

For others, a sense of being stuck in less helpful eating and lifestyle patterns brings them to me.  We work on their motivations and existing skills and resources to make gradual lasting changes.

I have recently qualified as a practitioner in Functional Imagery Training (FIT). FIT has has been described as 'Motivational Interviewing on steroids'. It adds on a multisensory element to the sessions, making healthy behaviour change significantly more likely and sustainable.

Regardless of the client and their background, my approach is patient-centred and non-judgmental. We all have our own narrative around our health or ill-health and, if not acknowledged, we're unlikely to commit to change.  My primary job is to understand that story.

Group workshops is something I love delivering within both my NHS and private work. I currently deliver workshops to final year medical students alongside a chef and a GP in a professional kitchen at Westminster Kingsway Catering College.

Further collaboration with other professionals is something I would relish and I am open to ideas.
