RECONNECTING BODY, MIND & SOUL TO FIND THE BEST YOU

There is a tendency to think of health as a distinct aspect to our lives. And in many cases, we think of it as something that happens to us, something outside of our control.

However, most physical and mental health conditions we experience are intrinsically linked with the broader aspects of our lives; our diet, our activity patterns, our stress levels, our thinking habits, our support networks and even our sense of purpose. Good health is about more than managing symptoms and avoiding long term conditions.

The holistic approach recognises that we are complex beings, made up of many interconnected systems, and that true health involves seeking balance in all aspects of our lives.

about me

Passionate about healing.

I am a GP, Holistic Doctor and Clinical Hypnotherapist based in West Kent. I have dedicated the last 25 years to exploring how I can best help people make the most of their health. Whether I am working with an individual, a group or an organisation, I recognise that everyone is unique; my approach is to help my clients understand and take control of their health and find their own personal path to wellness.

I have studied and use a blend of conventional, integrative, functional and lifestyle medicine, mindfulness teaching and clinical hypnosis, alongside expertise in coaching, strategic leadership and digital technology to support my patients and the organisations I work with. I am passionate about my role as an NHS GP, but so often meet patients I wish I had more time with; more time to understand their whole situation, more time to help them understand the complex factors at play in their health, and more time to support them making changes that add up to life-changing progress.

My holistic practice allows me to do just that. Spend more time.

About me

my philosophy

  • I believe that health and wellness are our most valuable assets

  • I believe that our diet, activity, sleep and relationships have a profound impact on our health

  • I believe that real health requires balance across all these areas

  • I believe that we have an innate ability to heal ourselves

  • I believe that many health conditions result from not paying attention to our bodies

  • I believe that everyone is unique and has the right to choose their own healing path

  • I believe that kindness and compassion are the heart of the doctor-patient relationship

  • I am passionate about working in collaboration with my patients to achieve their potential

SPECIAL INTERESTS

​As a GP, I am used to treating a wide variety of health, wellbeing and lifestyle issues and am happy to discuss how I may help on a free 20-minute discovery call.

My areas of particular interest, those that I think really benefit from the additional time and a more holistic approach, and where there is good evidence for the use of Mindfulness and Hypnosis in particular are:

  • Stress and overwhelm

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Insomnia

  • Chronic pain & fibromyalgia

  • Chronic fatigue 

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

Mindful meditation

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity
