About Me

Hi, I’m Drew. A psychological wellbeing practitioner passionate about helping others live a successful, healthy, and happy life!

From my teenage days battling with deep depression and anxiety, to the health conditions I have managed as an adult, I have overcome many struggles throughout my life. Though I have qualifications that give me the skills and knowledge to effectively support my clients, it is having overcome my own struggles that pushes me to help others do the same.

As a practitioner I tend to gravitate towards a few health factors; healthy eating and mental wellbeing practices mostly. However you will find by exploring the site, or working with me directly, that I take into account much more than this. By being mindful of how our physical health, mental wellbeing, and social connections interact, we can get a better sense of how to control and optimise our overall wellness.

Have a look around the blog and see if something sparks your interest. Think critically about what you see and hear in the world, 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 so.

All the Best,
Andrew Keating, BSc. MSc. MBPsS
