About me

Hi, I’m Dr Emma Thurston.


High-performance holistic health

Emotional wellbeing is vital to allow individuals to flourish, perform at their best 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 was awarded a master’s degree in Public Health (with distinction) from the University of Edinburgh in July 2020

I became a Certified Lifestyle Physician (IBLM) in October 2020. 

I am thrilled to announce that I have just completed my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Aligned Yoga (Yoga Alliance Certification pending). 

As my fascination for breathwork grew I chose to complete my Breath Coach Training (Yoga Alliance certified) in Autumn 2020. 

I’m currently a GP registrar living in the New Forest and the Regional Director for the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine (BSLM) for Hampshire & Dorset.
