Training for Health Professionals

I specialise in delivering tailored health behaviour change workshops for medical and allied health practitioners, nurses, fitness professionals, businesses, fitness clubs and gyms.

I have worked for 16 years in health behaviour change as an Executive Health Coach, health presenter, and previously as the lead Health Coach for the NSW Government ‘Get Healthy Service’. I currently coach and train practitioners in health behaviour change and health coaching techniques.

Programs and workshops can be delivered on site, via webinar, or at a specific venue.

Content is tailored to the needs of the business, medical centre, community health centre, and hospital.
