Introduction I am a freelance health journalist, living in the UK. I have been writing for 28 years, working for many of the UK's top women's magazines including Bella, Best, Prima and Woman's Weekly. I am interested and write about all areas of health including general women's health, fitness, nutrition, mental health issues and complementary medicine. I have a BA (Hons) in Health Promotion and Health Studies and am also a qualified aromatherapist. I have also worked on PR campaigns for Tesco (beauty products, fashion and food), Clynol haircare and Paco Rabanne fragrances. I am passionate about ethical issues and was a member of a Fairtrade group for 11 years, whom I did their PR for and educational events at primary schools, and still continue to support.
