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 Physician 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, skype and telephone.
I offer Lifestyle Medicine consultations at the Duchy Hospital in Truro.
My goal is for you to reach yours.
