"I have found with Dr Reed’s health coaching a complete transformation of how I approach my work. My physical and mental health have never been better, and I am now much more resilient, happier and more productive, in ways that I could not imagine before."
"Joyce was a god-send to me with no physio or any contact from NHS because of Covid, (she) helped me pre-op for my second operation and more importantly post-op where I would not be where I am today in health and fitness."
"Joyce has helped me to see that achieving a better lifestyle isn't as daunting as it sounds, and by making a series of small changes my health and wellbeing have improved dramatically!"
"Joyce has great knowledge on nutrition, diet, exercise in rehabilitation, mental health etc and in general to be happy in life, (and) I would highly recommended (her) if you want to have the best life you can."
“I had never done health coaching before, so came with limited expectations, and was blown away by what we achieved together. I came with a 20 year old running injury. Within a couple of weeks this issue was resolved and I’m now running 15 km per week."
"I’ve been asthmatic since childhood. With changes to my diet and lifestyle, with support from Joyce and the asthma clinic at my local GP practice, I have been able to stop all medication and have no asthma symptoms."
“Joyce has helped me get back to sports and athletics quickly and without injury. I feel fitter and stronger than I did even before my injury!”
