Specialises in

I am a General Practitioner and a certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician with a passion for optimising health using preventative measures.

I qualified with Honours from the University of Southampton with a Bachelor in Biomedical Sciences focusing on nutrition related modules. I qualified as a doctor from Barts and London, School of Medicine and Dentistry (University of London) in 2012. I completed my GP vocational training in Brighton and Mid-Sussex in 2018. I am an internationally certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician through the British and International Board of Lifestyle Medicine. I have attended a Foundation in Life Coaching event with the Coaching Academy in addition to completing various lifestyle and motivational interviewing related courses.

Poor health outcomes can often be attributed to stress and unhealthy lifestyle. I would like to help and empower clients to optimise their life using coaching and motivational interviewing techniques. My goal is to provide a personalised, realistic and sustainable plan with the aim for the lifestyle change to be lifelong. Sessions held will provide support through the journey and help overcome obstacles and barriers that one may face.

Lifestyle medicine is the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic interventions to prevent, treat and often reverse certain chronic diseases. It includes an overall review of nutrition, exercise, sleep, mental wellbeing, social habits and connections.

Since 2018, I have been working for BUPA carrying out health assessments. I have experience helping clients optimise their lifestyle and achieve their health goal.
