Initially drawn to Complementary Medicine, Rebecca gained diplomas in Reflexology and Nutritional Therapy in 2009, thereafter practising Reflexology part time, having achieved full membership of the Association of Reflexologists.
She went on to train in Medicine, qualifying as a Doctor with Hull York Medical School in 2016, where her research interests focused on Immunology, specifically the role of anti-smooth muscle antibodies in development of autoimmune liver disease. Since then, she has worked in Hospital Medicine, helping patients with more acute presentations of illness. She has maintained her professional development in the Complementary Health and Wellness field throughout, with additional qualifications in Health Coaching and Medical Acupuncture.
Rebecca now divides her time between Hospital Medicine, Complementary Therapies and Health Coaching. She regularly attends research and training events in order to keep up to date, and has recently completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Human Nutrition with the University of Chester. She has also previously provided Health Coaching for the Cheshire and Wirral division of the NHS National Diabetes Prevention Programme.
“Attention to diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management combine to form the best type of prevention for chronic illnesses that affect so many in our modern day society. But there exists a lot of misleading information about health, which can leave many feeling overwhelmed and unable to manage their own health needs effectively.
The health coaching programs I offer are personalised and holistic, drawing on the knowledge and skills I have built over the last ten years in medicine, nutrition, complementary healthcare, behavioural change and communication. During all sessions I aim to provide a combination of motivation, support and health education, in order to help others set and reach their own individual health and wellness goals”.
