Dr Rangan Chatterjee
MBChB, BSc (Hons), MRCGP, MRCP

"I often talk about how people need a ‘Lifestyle Prescription,’ and not a pill, to help them prevent and potentially reverse chronic lifestyle-related diseases. A Health Coach can help you co-create exactly the right Lifestyle Prescription for you, and more importantly, support you to implement new lifestyle choices and overcome any resistance to change you might experience.  Working with a Health Coach offers the support and framework that can benefit many people and make things easier as they take back control of their own health."

Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential doctors in the UK and wants to change how medicine will be practiced in years to come. He has been called a pioneer and is changing the way that we look at illness. He is known for finding the root cause of people's problems and he highlighted his methods in the ground-breaking BBC television show, Doctor in the House, which has been shown in over 70 countries around the world. In 2017, he was placed 8th in the Pulse Power 50 list for influential GPs.

He is the author of the international best-seller, The Four Pillar Plan which has already become one of the top 10 selling Health titles of the past 5 years. The book has recently been launched in the US under the title How to Make Disease Disappear. This year Dr Chatterjee started the Feel Better, Live More podcast to help empower listeners to lead healthier, happier lives and has over 1 million downloads to date.

Dr Chatterjee’s new book The Stress Solution, out January 2019, is available for pre-order via Amazon now.

Dr Annabel Boys (PhD)

“Study after study tells us the same story: the biggest risk factors for chronic diseases are our lifestyle choices - particularly those concerning food, alcohol, stress and exercise. Most of us actually know what we should be doing in order to be healthy - we just struggle to do it. I am convinced that Health Coaching holds the key to bridging the gap between knowledge and real, sustainable change. People don’t just need to be told what to do, they need support and accountability to find good habits that they can happily stick to long-term”

With a background in education and research and a PhD in psychological medicine from King’s College, London, Dr Annabel Boys has authored over 30 peer-reviewed academic papers and has spoken at conferences internationally. She has worked for the NHS and has had projects funded by the Department of Health, the Home Office and various health-related charities.
Her original area of expertise was in health behaviour and decision-making in young people. Realising the importance of lifestyle choices in long-term health and wellness, Annabel trained as a Health Coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in 2012.

Over the last six years she has worked to bring health coaches together in the UK and to raise the profile and credibility of health coaching. She co-founded the UK Health Coaches Association in 2017. She now focuses on one to one health coaching with clients in Hampshire and Sussex and via 'skype' to help them to achieve their personal health goals.

DR ALISON SABINE

“The constant fire-fighting within the NHS has to stop! With the current rise in complex chronic disease and the recognition that more than 80% is diet and lifestyle driven, it is more important than ever to address the root cause of ill health. If we are to successfully change behaviour and habits, regular support is required and busy Clinicians cannot possibly do this alone. Health Coaches provide a solution and the results are potentially life-changing. This is the future of medicine.”

Dr Alison Sabine is a Consultant Rheumatologist in Birmingham and has worked in the NHS for over 25 years. Her interest in Lifestyle Medicine has grown from an increasing recognition of the potential for dietary change to modify inflammatory disease and from her own personal experience. She sees the growing burden of chronic ill health in her clinics and the impact this is having on people’s lives. She has studied with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and recognises the potential role for Health Coaches in the current healthcare setting. She is also passionate about getting people to move more and has trained as a Nordic Walking Instructor, running Heart of England Nordic Walking while continuing her NHS work. http://heartofenglandnordicwalking.co.uk

Dr Angela Goyal is a GP with a portfolio career and created Inspired Medics to support and educate GPs in diversifying their roles, adopting lifestyle medicine in their practice and looking after themselves better too.
