As a lead practitioner in dementia in the NHS, she pioneered a successful interactive ‘brainfood project’. This helped patients and their carers to learn how to optimise brain health and how to prevent or slow down cognitive decline and dementia.
Systems thinking, and its application in her life practice and healing work, is her primary focus. Her passion is raising awareness about health conditions, helping people to understand what is happening and what we can do to heal both individually and as communities from a holistic perspective. She has published many articles about Holistic Approaches to Health.
Many of her articles and interviews with transformative leaders in healthcare are published here: https://www.unleashourhealth.com/publications.html
