About Me

Who Am I And Why Did I Start Motivated Health?

My name is Suzanna and I am a HCPC registered and Chartered Physiotherapist, a Certified Health Coach, Nutritional Therapist, Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner, Stress Management Trainer and member of the UK Health Coaches Association, with over 12 years experience as an Allied Health Professional. 

I started Motivated Health after I met more and more people in my physiotherapy work with far more health-related issues than just the musculoskeletal disorders that they were coming in with. Chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes are becoming more and more prevalent among patients, and the number of people who are overweight or obese is overwhelming.

The impact of lifestyle factors on people’s health is huge, yet people don’t know how to change, and therefore struggle with ambivalence about changing. As a physiotherapist, I often treat people post injury and those with osteoarthritis, much of which could be prevented or managed much more effectively with the right support and changes in lifestyle. 

A major part of my Certified Health Coach Training included Motivational Interviewing (M.I.) and I have also undertaken a Masters module in M.I. It can really help to draw out people’s own motivation and get them on the road to change. I have undertaken a substantial amount of additional training over the past couple of years to enable me to help people realise their health goals and make a long-lasting impact on their health and wellbeing.

I want to get you motivated, starting at whatever point you’re currently at, guide you on your path to change to prevent osteoarthritis symptoms or manage your osteoarthritis, and empower you in reaching your goals! Saying that, I don't just help people with osteoarthritis. I help anyone who is real to make a real change in their health.

I love science! I don’t believe in ‘fad’ diets, short-term health-kicks and hearsay. I prefer to get my education from proven sources where the material I’m digesting is evidence-based and from good science. That is why I chose to undertake one of the few evidence-based health coaching certification programs available and completed my nutritional therapist certification and advanced clinical weight loss practitioner certifications with the Health Sciences Academy, based in the UK. I also have a keen interest in the benefits of effective stress management with a diploma as a Stress Management Trainer from the Stress Management Institute (UK), and also an interest in mindfulness and meditation with some additional learning undertaken with Renaissance Life Therapies, also based in the UK.
