Hi. I’m Rachel, a health behaviour change psychologist on a mission to help you become the best version of yourself and create an effortlessly healthy lifestyle by developing good habits.
Even if you’ve tried and failed to make changes on your own, I believe that by working together we can get to the root of what’s draining your motivation, causing your bad habits and getting you down.
How do I know this?
Because I used these strategies to turn my life around & I have seen amazing transformations from my clients.
I specialize in helping women like you who feel stuck in a seemingly never-ending cycle of unhealthy behaviour, to successfully overhaul their lifestyle by making small manageable changes and without relying on willpower.
It’s about creating a supportive environment and healthy habits for life that will guide your behaviour on auto-pilot.
To do that, we need to work together to understand YOU and your life. My signature 1-2-1 program aims to uncover the root of your problems. It will help you to understand what‘s triggering the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are currently getting you down and standing in the way of your progress. From this foundation we will work together to make healthy habits an effortless and enjoyable part of your daily life. The program is tailored to YOU and your needs for maximum results.
I studied my first class psychology degree (BSc, hons) at The University of Nottingham, with at year abroad at one of the top universities for psychology in Australia. From there I progressed to study my MSc in Health Psychology at the Institute of Work Health and Organisations at the University of Nottingham. I specialised in behaviour change interventions and understanding eating behaviour, and graduated with a distinction.
Next I held a research assistant position investigating motivation in the Physical Education and Sports Sciences Department at the National Institute of Education in Singapore . Following my return to the UK I took some time away from academia and completed qualifications in Nutritional Therapy and Weight Loss Coaching.
In September 2015 I started my Psychology PhD at the University of Sheffield. I am currently studying the psychology of eating behaviour and the influence of factors such as habits and self-control.
I have presented my work at international conferences and published four journal papers with more to follow. I love reading the latest articles about why some people are better than others at acting on their intentions and interventions to change health behaviours. I bring my knowledge from 10 years of studying psychology and my evidence-based approach to working with clients.
I have Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society and am a member of the Division of Health Psychology, which reflects my desire to represent the highest possible professional standards.
