Hi, I’m Dr Lafina. I’m a GP and Lifestyle Doctor specialising in stress, anxiety and other health issues caused by 21st century life.

I work with busy professionals and entrepreneurs to help them overcome a range of health problems and get to the root cause of illness using the DEIA Method - a natural but science backed approach to health & wellbeing.

Health & wellness can be complicated and in a world driven by technology and information-overload the health landscape can be tricky one to navigate. If you're feeling stuck, confused or frustrated about your health don't worry, you're certainly not alone. Over the course of my career I've learned that health isn't linear, it's a journey and I'm here to support you every step of the way. You may be going through some health challenges right now and perhaps you're not feeling at your best but I want you to know that this is a safe, friendly and compassionate space where you can explore your health at your own pace and get the support you need.

How I can help you

My ultimate goal is to help you to better understand your health, take back control and enjoy the health and happiness that comes with a lifestyle that supports and nourishes body mind and soul. One of my skills as a GP is to be able to look at the bigger picture when it comes to looking at your health within the context of your life. Doing this means that we can get to the root cause of the problem and create a plan to get your health back on track! I've developed a holistic, thorough and multi-faceted way of doing this, The DEIA Method (described below).

I have trained at world class universities including King's College London where I obtained my BSc in Anatomy and MBBS Medicine, University College London where I studied for a Dual Masters in Brain & Mind Science and the Sorbonne University Paris where I obtained my International Masters Diploma in Neuroscience. After becoming a GP I undertook further training in Lifestyle Medicine at the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine, American College of Lifestyle Medicine and Yale University. I am a GMC registered doctor with full license to practice and a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners and British Society of Lifestyle Medicine.

The DEIA Method

Drawing on my experience as a GP, lifestyle doctor, holistic practitioner and psychology geek I've developed The DEIA Method to help you to assess and rebalance your health. The Deia Method blends influences from east and western medicine, psychology, mind-body medicine and nature to assess and treat health problems and get you the best results. Best of all it's grounded in evidence and easy to follow.

In our consult we will explore your physical, emotional and mental health. We will also consider your lifestyle, looking at how 8 key factors may be affecting your health or wellbeing. These factors are:

1. Nutrition
2. Sleep
3. Movement
4. Relaxation
5. Genetics
6. Nature
7. Relationships
8. Toxic substances

Together we'll work on an action plan that is easy to implement, gets you tangible results and you'll have my support every step of the way.
