Meet Dr Radha – MA (Hons) MBBS (Hons) MRCGP DFRSH DRCOG
Health and Wellbeing Expert
What I offer:
Throughout my career as a GP, I have witnessed firsthand how many of us struggle with our wellbeing and the taboos that surround talking about it.
Our experiences often impact our own story, but I believe we all have the power to change this story and ultimately improve our wellbeing.
Throughout my experience appearing on television and radio, through my writing, clinical work and in my own life, I have supported individuals to take control of their own wellbeing.
I offer practical tips and advice on how to ‘do life’. I believe that if we are equipped with the right tools and advice, we all have the power to live our best life and I hope sharing my insights, knowledge and advice can help everyone to do this.
