Who I work with
I work with organisations, youth and professionals to help realise their full health, well-being and performance potential, using holistic and evidence-based approaches and science-backed data analytics.
Some clients consider themselves to be languishing – they are neither ill nor well. They don’t experience life as fulfilling, satisfying or even enjoyable most of the time and often talk about lacking vitality, enthusiasm, and energy, about having challenges with their mood and/or anxiety, about problems sleeping, about being inactive, not eating a well-balanced and healthy diet or lacking positive social relationships. Languishing has been associated with poorer functioning, including absenteeism from work and being unable to manage life’s daily activities (e.g. completing exercise or household tasks). Languishing is also a known risk factor for mental illness.
Other clients say they are going ok(ish) – they are functioning in society and meeting their (often wide-ranging) responsibilities and obligations (to others). However, they report feeling chronically stressed, their performance being sub-optimal, rushing from one thing to another, feeling guilty when they take time for themselves and often describe a sense of constant imbalance in their life – a sense that their life has become more complex than what they can manage effectively. They have typically put self-care at the bottom of the priority list and often realise they are heading towards burn-out without knowing how to stop the train.
Other clients specifically want to focus in on adopting a healthy lifestyle to support the recovery from, prevention or treatment of physical or mental health challenges/illness. They are typically already being supported by their GP or specialist and want a wellness coach on the team! Someone who understands “lifestyle medicine” and how to support people making positive and sustainable changes that set them up for better health, well-being, and longevity.
Whichever description resonates with you the most, our goal together will be the same. To get you to a state of flourishing by looking at your life holistically and putting in place a personalised programme that empowers you to create the life that makes sense to you, that aligns with what you need to flourish, includes good lifestyle habits and that leverages all the insights available to us from modern science.
Typically this holistic approach means we work at three levels; physiological (physical health), lifestyle system (habits) and mindframe (how we look at ourselves and the world, our identity and beliefs). What we do (habits) is a reflection of who we believe we are (our sense of identity), therefore “upgrading and expanding our identity” is a fundamental part of generating sustainable positive change and a core component of the work I do.
Clients describe working with me as a collaborative, restorative and transformative experience, which is exclusively about them! They value being listened to and to be really seen as who they are and who they can be. They appreciate having quality time for reflection and having a professional that takes an evidence and data-based approach and complements coaching with lifestyle and other assessments and biofeedback treatment.

I work intensively with client and take on only a limited number of clients at a time. If you are interested in working with me please use the button below and provide a brief outline of your current situation and your desired outcomes. We can then organise a complimentary discussion in person, via Zoom or over the phone to talk in more depth about what you want to achieve, how we could work together and answer any questions you may have.
