Guest Bio:

Joyce worked as hospital doctor and Paediatrician in the NHS for 12 years before suffering from emotional and physical burnout 5 years ago. She had a growing sense that there was more to health than prescribing drugs to cover symptoms. During her recovery, Joyce partnered with her husband Professor Mark Reed in their academic training company Fast Track Impact. In order to heal herself, Joyce began prioritising her health and wellbeing and learnt from direct experience that lifestyle changes do really work. She realised that supporting people with their health and wellbeing was still a deeply held desire so Joyce enrolled in CNM’s Health Coach Diploma. She now trains and coaches in health and wellbeing across the academic sector and with private clients, empowering people to adopt a better work-life balance and address the key issues driving their stress and burnout.
