About


As a former librarian, specializing in cataloguing periodicals and newspapers, I learned early in my career that there is a vast amount of information available about health.

If you are looking to improve your own health and fitness and don’t know where to start I would love to help you with evidence-based programmes that are simple to follow and effective.
