Hi, I’m Dr Emma Thurston.
High-performance holistic health
Emotional wellbeing is vital to allow individuals to flourish and adapt to inevitable stressors in life positively. Reduced emotional wellbeing can impact how we perform in our daily lives – from relationships to work. It can also lead to mental health issues such as stress, anxiety and depression. In turn, these can have significant physical health implications such as cardiovascular disease, digestive problems and sleep disturbance.
I want to help people to thrive, not just survive.
I hope you enjoy this platform.
My qualifications and roles:
I qualified from Oxford University in 2015 with a distinction in Medicine (BM, BCh) and a MA in medical sciences.
I’m currently a GP trainee living in the New Forest. I’ve just been awarded a master’s degree in Public Health (with distinction) from the University of Edinburgh and am studying for a diploma in lifestyle medicine alongside being a practising doctor. I’m also the Regional Director for the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine (BSLM) for Hampshire & Dorset.
As my fascination for breathwork grows I chose to complete my Breath Coach Training (Yoga Alliance certified).
