In 2016-18 when my father became seriously ill, coming on the back of some health problems of my own, the weight started to creep back on, as I had taken my eye off the ball, and was not looking after myself. However, this was very short-lived and I quickly dealt with it, soon returning to my comfortable weight. It was when this happened that I suddenly realised that I had successfully broken the diet and weight gain cycle, after spending the last few years of being fearful of it, and always expecting that I would return to my former weight at some point.
It was this realisation, coupled with the most incredible gift from my father when he passed away in 2018, that I discovered I had something very special to offer, and needed to turn my attention to helping others who are in the position that I used to be in.
So and after a varied career in the public sector, including being a prison officer, drug and alcohol worker, part time firefighter, a successful 18 year stint as a senior manager in the NHS, and a short spell as a successful part-time Cambridge Weight Plan (now 1:1 Diet) consultant, it was time for me to bring all that experience together with my passion for health and wellbeing, and help others to achieve their potential and break free from the yo-yo diet cycle, as I had been able to do.
So YourOneLife was born. I embarked on a year-long journey to retrain, getting new qualifications, building on the ones I already had, to make sure I could offer the best quality service possible, and since early 2020 I have been helping others to transform how they manage their weight and make the best of their lives.
I now help people to develop the right mindset, knowledge and practical skills to find the right solution for them. I finally feel like I have found my life’s true purpose and my business is my father’s legacy. I am incredibly passionate about what I do, and feel very privileged that I am in a position to be able to help others transform their lives, having transformed my own and knowing what a difference it made to me.
We do only get one life, so let’s all make the best of it.
I can help you find the power within yourself to make the best of YOUR life.
