GP and Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician
"When you have a clear sense of purpose, access to the right information and know how to implement this into your own unique YOU, then this can lead to a healthy and fulfilling life.
I feel honoured and privileged to be a GP and to have had the opportunity to make a positive impact in people’s lives. I have learned so much from my patients over the years, including how beliefs and behaviours significantly influence health, wellbeing and quality of life.
I believe general practice should be about promoting optimal health and supporting people to achieve their own personal health goals, in order to feel their best and be able to enjoy their lives as much as possible. Everyone is unique with their own values, circumstances and experiences. Though research can guide us towards what behaviours will improve our wellbeing, there is no one-size-fits-all approach for helping individuals achieve their health goals.
Lifestyle factors account for around 70% of visits to GP. By providing the evidence-based information and individualised support not only can disease be prevented, but a greater quality and duration of life can be enjoyed – greater physical and mental health."
