About Me

I worked in the NHS from 1986-2019, mainly as a GP. During this time, I developed a special interest in helping people to prevent and manage their health conditions and saw first hand the barriers that prevent many of us from reaching our full potential.

From 2014-2018 I worked for NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group as a Governing Body GP and Clinical Lead for Long Term Conditions, leading on transformation such as the Virtual Diabetes Clinic and National Diabetes Prevention Programme in Cornwall.


Since leaving General Practice I have qualified as a Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner and Advanced Level Coach in order to focus all of my work on supporting those who wish to make changes in their lives.


I have always been described as kind, empathic and a good listener. I believe in the uniqueness of each person and the capacity we each have within us to solve our own problems.


I am based in Blackwater, Cornwall, UK and offer 1:1 coaching locally and nationally and internationally by zoom and telephone.

I also coach in Blackwater and in natural outdoor spaces by individual arrangement.

My goal is for you to reach yours.
