I have worked as a public health specialist for more than 25 years, specifically relating to nutrition, physical activity, overweight and obesity. I have developed a special interest in assisting women to optimise their health and wellbeing through making small modifications to their lifestyle and behaviours to help alleviate the symptoms of the menopause and perimenopause. I use evidence based methods to help improve body composition, nutrition, physical activity, sleep habits, mood, mindset and health.
I have a public health PhD, an MSc in Sport& Exercise Nutrition and I am currently studying for an MSc in Psychology& Neuroscience of Mental health with a particular interest in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I am a registered nutritionist with BDA/SENr, I am trained in motivational interviewing (a psychological technique to change behaviour), a registered anthropometrist (ISAK, Level 1 qualified) and a registered exercise professional (CIMSPA). I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Public Health (FRSPH), a member of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine (BSLM) and an affiliate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
