Dr Katie Holliman
MbBChB, MRCGP, DFSRH, DRCOG, DipIBLM
"I have always believed in the principles of making positive lifestyle changes to treat illness, help prevent disease in later life and improve quality of life and wellbeing. I have used these methods throughout my medical career, and am passionate about getting to the root causes of problems and treating patients in a holistic manner. I was so pleased when Lifestyle Medicine emerged as a specialty, and it's fantastic to have the backing of solid medical research behind the lifestyle advice we promote.
As a mother of two young children I am very familiar with the challenges in balancing different aspects of working and family life with staying happy and healthy. I use yoga as my mindfulness time so have done a lot of this in this very challenging last year!"
