More About Me

About Me

I currently work as an MI trainer and also part-time as a dietitian in diabetes care. As a Registered Dietitan I have worked in the NHS in England for over 20 years. I   opened my own training consultancy Optimal Change in 2007 which includes both Motivational Interviewing and Nutrition & Dietetics. My clinical expertise includes diabetes, obesity, long term condition management and eating disorders. I have trained extensively in all health care settings for well over a 15 years. I also deliver trainings in other areas including substance misuse, youth offending,education and employment. I have enjoyed training MI since 2000 when I became a member of MINT ]. I train both in the UK as well as internationally.
I am passionate about the role of Motivational Interviewing within health and social care. I am actively involved in MINT, currently I chair the Events Committee which organises MINT's annual International meeting and I served on the MINT Board of Directors for over 4 years until 2013. I was also fortunate to be a TNT trainer in Atlanta in 2014.
