Rebecca's path to healthcare began following a longstanding interest in the health and wellness field. Initially drawn to Complementary Medicine, she gained diplomas in Reflexology and Nutritional Therapy in 2009, thereafter practising Reflexology part time, having achieved full membership of the Association of Reflexologists.
She went on to train in Medicine, qualifying as a Doctor with Hull York Medical School in 2016, where her research interests focused on Immunology, looking at the role of antibodies in the development of autoimmune hepatitis. Since then, she has worked in Hospital Medicine. She has maintained her professional development in the Complementary Health and Wellness field throughout, with additional qualifications in Health Coaching and Medical Acupuncture.
She now divides her time between Hospital Medicine, Complementary Therapies and Health Coaching. She regularly attends research and training events in order to keep up to date, and is currently completing a Masters in Human Nutrition with the University of Chester. She has also provided Health and Wellbeing Coaching for the Cheshire and Wirral division of the NHS National Diabetes Prevention Programme.
