Hi, I'm Korina,

I have a passion for all aspects of health, including peoples mental wellbeing, fitness and incorporating balance in their diet. Trying to change a certain behaviour or habit can be draining when doing it alone. I help my clients by motivating them that chance can be scary but you don’t have to tackle it alone! My aim is to help you to keep that control and be mindful of any decisions and instead of regretting them, learn from them and move on. It’s not failure, it’s unfinished success! We are all human and life can get tough. I love to help my clients see that wanting to better yourself doesn’t need to be a chore and it’s something to celebrate! 😊

Secret to success

It doesn't matter how slow you go, as long as you do not stop. Consistency is the secret to success. It’s not about how many times you fall down, it’s how many times you get back up and try again!

Three words

Passionate, Empathic, Caring

Job Role: Schools prevention programme lead

Hi, I'm Victoria,

My role at healthy lifestyles focuses on working with secondary schools in Gloucestershire. Our programme helps to encourage young people to explore their decision making process when they making choices in relation to their behaviours and actions. We allow them to explore safely different methods, techniques and decision-making systems through interactive and engaging classroom based sessions.  Within these sessions, young people are provided with opportunities to explore who they are and how to get help and support when they need it.

Secret to success

There is no such word as can’t  - anything is achievable if we do it for our own right reasons, our outcomes are our own desires and our systems for success are strong and considered

Three words

Motivated, driven and considered

Job Role: HLS Gloucestershire Director

Hi, I'm John.

I love my job as I get to work with every member of the team and hear about the lives we change each and every day in Gloucestershire.  

I’ve found a love in motivational interviewing, and improving coaching conversations, management and leadership within health through our training sessions co-ordinated by Emma.


Secret to success for clients: If I could give any advice to a client joining the service it would be to do it for YOU and your own reasons. However complex, silly or insignificant they might seem to others, they are your goals - own them!


Describe yourself in three words: Energetic, positive and passionate.

Job Role: Healthy Me, Baby & Beyond Programme Lead

Hi I’m Emma,

I love my job! My favourite part is interacting with clients.

Stopping smoking or changing other aspects of our lives can be a daunting experience and an overwhelming decision. However, with help and support from a coach, you are four times more likely to successfully stop smoking. After 12-weeks of support, clients can walk away with the knowledge that they did it and have the tools they need to remain smoke free. It's such a rewarding process to be part of.

I've had clients in the past tap me on the shoulder and say: “Hey Emma, I’m now five years smoke free and it was the best decision I ever made!” When they tell me this, I couldn't be prouder.

Secret to success for clients: Talk to your coach - be open and honest about how you're feeling. Supporting is what we love to do. We have so many hints and tips that we’ve gathered from successful journeys of others and from research that can help you too.

Describe yourself in three words: Kind, supportive, dedicated


Job Role: Healthy Lifestyle Advisor

Hi, I'm Paula!

What I liked most about my job is enabling people to make a change whether it be big or small.

It's great when I see clients after they have finished their 12-week programme with us and they have maintained the goal they wanted to achieve. 

Secret to success for clients: Commitment in making appointments is really important so that they get the most out of the 12-weeks.

But also honesty to themselves & belief that they can do it even through the difficult times.

3 words to describe yourself: Devoted, attentive & empathetic 












Job Role: Healthy Lifestyles Coach

Hi, I’m Traci

What I like most about my job is meeting new clients and helping them reach their goal. Every day is different, and each person’s challenge is a motivation to me.

The most rewarding part for me is seeing people transform by making life-changing healthy lifestyle choices.

Secret to success for clients: For clients to succeed and get the most out of our programme I believe they must be committed and honest.

Describe yourself in three words: Friendly, patient and non-judgemental. Every struggle you have, I would have myself!

Job Role: Healthy Lifestyles Coach

Hi I’m Alex

I'm passionate about all aspects of health, especially wellbeing.

I feel so lucky to say that I absolutely love my job! Every day is different and it’s fantastic to know that the purpose of my role is to help people in my community.

What I love most about my job is being able to pass on my knowledge to others - empowering them to improve their lifestyles in the long term.

l'm most proud when I help someone achieve a goal they hadn’t even realised was important to them or had never thought possible.

Secret to success for clients: Be open, help us help you understand what you want to achieve and why. Don’t over complicate the plan of action and stick with it!

Describe yourself in three words: Knowledgeable, honest, dedicated

Job Role: Healthy Me, Baby & Beyond Programme Lead

Hi, I’m Laura

I’m a healthy lifestyles coach working mainly with pregnant women.

My favourite part of my job is seeing someone have that 'lightbulb moment' where they are confident and in control of their new behaviours - that moment when they realise they can, and will, make healthier choices for both themselves and their unborn child. 

My proudest achievements have to be successfully supporting, not just a pregnant client, but their family too, to make positive changes to their everyday health. Having parents make healthier lifestyle choices helps give baby the best start in life. Smoke-free parents mean a smoke-free home. 

The secret to success for clients: My secret to success for clients is being consistent and having an overall ‘drive’ to want to change.

Describe yourself in three words: Positive, motivated and personable

Job Role: Healthy Lifestyles Coach

Hi, I’m Khat

I really love adapting our support to clients because each person is different and so is the way we work with them.

One of my proudest achievements as a coach is setting up gym sessions to help people feel more comfortable in a gym setting.

Secret to success for clients: For me, the best success is when a client continues to progress after leaving the service because they have changed their behaviour and are continuing to make healthier lifestyle choices.

Describe yourself in three words: Committed, organised, non-judgemental

Job Role: Healthy Lifestyles Coach

Hi, I’m Michelle

I'm 100% dedicated to my role and love talking to people and getting results.

I love networking and selling the great things we do at the service. Even on my days off I will be singing the service's and coaches' praises!

My biggest achievement was Wendy. She was an older lady who'd smoked for 55 years but never had the courage to give up. She was the only person in her group of friends who still smoked. With our help, she did give up and is still smoke free! She has saved so much money and her health has improved too! 

Secret to success for clients: I believe the secret to success is being dedicated, always communicating your ups and downs and, mainly, being fearless of failing!

Describe yourself in three words: Approachable, honest, caring

Job Role: Senior HLS Coach

Hi, I'm Rikki

I love helping people achieve their goals and feel better in themselves.

My proudest achievement is helping so many clients reach their target weight. In particular, I’ve had a couple of clients with mental health issues. Helping them get through their barriers was a great breakthrough for them - and a great achievement for me as coach.

I’ve recently set up a clinic in the Forest of Dean at a pharmacy. My clients have told me this is a great way to have an appointment during their 12-week programme because it's such an easy location for them to get to.

Secret to success for clients: I’ve found that clients who are successful set small realistic goals that are achievable. This helps keep them motivated and gives them a sense of accomplishment throughout their journey.

Describe yourself in three words: Passionate, dedicated, supportive

Job Role: Healthy Lifestyle Service Lead

Hi, I’m Jo

I work in our office supporting our team of coaches and admin staff.

We have a great team who love their jobs, and helping people be their best is at the top of our priority list! I love getting to hear first-hand about our client’s successes and how we're helping people in Gloucestershire to lead healthier lifestyles.

Secret to success for clients: My advice to a client would be: be honest! Our coaches can help you be your best when they have the full picture of what's going on.

Describe yourself in three words: Patient, kind and positive
