My experience as a GP in the NHS has shown me day after day how our modern lifestyles contribute to chronic illnesses and stress, both in work and at home.  I regularly sign people off sick with work related stress, and I believe much of this stress could be reduced or prevented using evidence based lifestyle medicine principles. 

My training as a GP and lifestyle medicine doctor has given me valuable knowledge and experience that I will pass on via my workshops on stress management and lifestyle medicine. 

Workshops can be delivered either face to face in an office setting or online.  The workshops are interactive with a number of exercises throughout leaving participants with a practical toolbox of free strategies to improve their health and wellbeing, and help prevent absenteeism and presenteeism.
