Meet Our Wonderful Team

We are very proud to introduce you to our passionate and skilled team. Our qualified team have a varied and diverse background; from sports science graduates to nurses, from dietitians to a GP and a psychologist. Healthy Hearts staff also undertake a variety of roles, some more community focussed and others more clinical.


Healthy Hearts is part of Thrive Tribe, which is a specialist healthy lifestyle service provider. The organisation was set up by a small team of NHS public health staff in 2008 and has since become a respected provider of healthy lifestyle services in London, Surrey, East Sussex, Lincolnshire, Oxfordshire and Somerset. You may well know us locally as the provider of Kick-It Stop Smoking Service and One You. You can read more about the organisation at
