Lifestyle Medicine is becoming increasingly more relevant and crucial to the future of our healthcare.
Looking after our own health and well being is something that we are hearing and thinking about much more these days.
Our lifestyle choices can either significantly improve our physical and mental health, or they can significantly reduce it. Which way we go is up to us. But sometimes it’s difficult to know how and where to start, especially if you find yourself in ‘a bit of rut’ or ‘viscous circle’.
Lifestyle Medicine Consultations
That is where my lifestyle medicine consultations can really help to get you on the right track. By making the commitment to yourself to begin positive change and keeping yourself accountable for your own future, I can help you achieve your health and lifestyle goals.
The key areas that I offer help and support with are nutrition, physical activity, sleep management, stress management, reducing or stopping smoking/alcohol, and weight loss.
Sometimes you may need the additional help of other health professionals or support groups, alongside your sessions with myself.
I do not have any involvement with your medications. You are advised to continue with all other current medical and healthcare courses of treatment, whilst receiving lifestyle consultations.
The beauty of lifestyle medicine is that you are only ever making changes that will ultimately benefit your general health and well being. If I feel that there is any risk to anything that you are proposing to do, or that you need signposting to other practitioners or services, I will be clear and honest about this.
Your goals will be decided on and set by you, based on what matters and what is relevant to you. We work together at your pace, in a non-judgmental environment, celebrating your successes (or challenges) along the way. Your sessions will not involve me pushing you into doing things you don’t want to do, jumping in to ‘fix your problems’ for you, or telling you what to do. I provide a safe space for you to find your own solutions. At the end of the day, YOU know better than I, what works for you and what your priorities are.
