I see you are a curious one. I like that!
Hi, I’m Andrew. Drew to my friends. The writer and owner of this website. As someone passionate about the health, happiness, and wellbeing of others, I welcome you to All Around Health.
When it comes to health, there are two things that I tend gravitate towards; Psychology and Nutrition. I feel that the root to our holistic wellbeing is found in these two aspects. What we internalise, both literally and metaphorically, impacts all aspects of our daily living. Gaining control of that is key to being happier and healthier. To date I have qualifications in both, which you can see further down on this page.
Though I may be in ownership of some expensive pieces of paper, something of equal importance is that I am an expert on my own personal experience. I have overcome both physical and mental health difficulties, and have learnt a lot through that. Likewise, you are an expert in your own personal experiences, of managing your own health and wellbeing. Though it is my qualifications that give me the skills and knowledge to focus my advice, it is having overcome my own struggles that spurs me to help others do the same.
As a private Health and Wellbeing Coach, I directly support my clients in living healthier and happier. For you, dear reader, I hope that the content on this site helps you to do the same for yourself.
My goal? In the future I hope to have my own practice. A place where people can come to resolve a number of health issues. Alongside me, a team of diverse specialists to aid our clients. This website and blog is but a stepping stone to that reality. Though I would encourage anyone with serious physical or mental health issues to seek out professional advice, if this website is the nudge for you to go do that, then it has done it’s job.
Have a look around the blog and see if something sparks your interest. Think critically about what you see and hear in the world, including on this site, especially when someone is telling you how to live your life. I hope you achieve the goals you set for yourself, and I hope I can help you to do that.
All the Best,
Andrew Keating, BSc. MSc. MBPsS
