"I love what I do, I love getting to know every client and their story and I love seeing progress, progress that most clients never believed they were capable of achieving. Habitual is not a product, it is not a per hour service it’s a whole approach to life, I pride myself in making Habitual the last intervention anyone will ever need. Life is short and Habitual helps you make the most of it by moving better, moving more, eating better, eating more consistently and feeling satisfaction in your life meaning you can be there for those you care about more fully."

I love getting to know every client, really listening to their story and creating a relationship of trust and open communication. No fear of judgment, no feelings of failure, just support, and tools on how you can start to make positive changes in your day to day life as well as the future. I love seeing clients grow stronger and how that strength is reflected in every aspect of their life, from greater energy to play with your kids, to waking up pain-free after years of chronic pain, to better posture at work.

"Having lived in Hong Kong for over 8 years, I’ve come to recognise the hectic lifestyles many of us lead to the point where many of us often put our careers, families and social lives as top priority and often at the expense of our health and fitness. My goal is to guide clients to a lifestyle they can be both proud of and happy with longterm through the practice of new FOOD habits and behaviours. It is so important to have an ongoing dialogue with each client to work through limitations, difficulties, and share the positives that will inevitably occur with consistent action."
