Lifestyle Medicine & Health Coaching
What is Lifestyle Medicine & Health Coaching?
Lifestyle medicine is the prevention of disorders caused by factors such as nutrition, physical inactivity, and chronic stress. As a clinically trained Physiologist and certified Health Coach, my aim is to help you address these factors, using a series of evidence based measurements, to develop a personalised health plan that boosts your energy, immunity, cardiovascular health and quality of life.

Initial Lifestyle Medicine Assessment & Personal Health Plan
We begin this one-hour confidential consultation by discussing your lifestyle and goals, and start to build your health profile using heartbeat technology and other related measures including…
• Medical history
• Blood pressure and ECG (single lead assessment of your heart rhythm)
• Stress resilience and symptoms of stress
• Weight, body composition and hydration
• Nutritional intake
• Strength and Balance
• Posture and movement quality
All results are available and fully reviewed at the time of attendance following which a Personal Health Plan is discusssed and agreed with you. This goal orientated Plan is tailored to you, but could cover areas such as exercise and activity, nutrition, weight control and stress resilience, providing you with a sense of control and motivation.

Stress, Recovery & Nutritional Analysis
Using a professional wearable device this cutting edge recording captures the functioning of the autonomic nervous system
The analysis is able to quantify times spent ‘stressed’ and times, including sleep, spent in recovery. The data allows a personalised timeline of stress and recovery matched against a diary to provide highly personalised lifestyle coaching. You will also be provided with a Nutrition Diary, to record all your food and fluid intake during the recording period.
During a 1 hour follow up consultation you will receive a full Report quantifying stress and recovery levels, sleep recovery and quality, daily activity and fitness levels, and energy depletion over the recording period. We will also examine the content and timing of your nutritional intake. Based upon the full interpretation of your results, you will receive coaching on appropriate lifestyle interventions, and an update to your Personal Health Plan.

Ongoing Coaching and Monitoring
After the Initial Lifestyle Medicine Assessment, you have the opportunity to receive 4, 6 or 12 weeks of coaching and monitoring to help ensure that your Personal Health Plan really does become a reality. With continuous support, we can fine tune your goals and lifestyle strategies, make you accountable, and reaffirm your commitment to change.
We will use appropriate modes of communication, including our online coaching app, and meet face to face
