A positive psychologist practicing in the UK and Spain, Fiona takes her clients outside for walk and talk sessions, introducing individuals, families and companies to fundamental biohacking through her programme ‘Nature Sense – Going outside to feel good Inside’.
- What has been your journey between your area of expertise and biohacking?
I spent many years living at the edge of the continent, where Europe meets Africa. A small rural fishing village. We rose with the sun, ate rich healthfull food and moved between the mountains and the sea. On moving back to London I realised the only way to keep my health was to Biohack. I had been aware of biohacking having taught my clients about Earthing and sleep and light awareness but realised that city living required a lot more than awareness – it required real understanding in application.
On returning I also realised professionally that the levels of anxiety and depression were off the scale compared to when you live closer to Nature, move and eat well. Consequently supplementation as well as circadian awareness has become a fundamental to my psychotherapy practice for the wellbeing of my clients
- What is your favourite quote?
- If there was only one thing you could share with the world, from your knowledge, what would it be?
Seek, become the detective of what your body is trying to say. Become more aware and responsible for your own health as no one is going to do it for you.
- What’s the most important value you hold yourself to?
- What is your favourite biohack?
Sleeping and when I’m awake .. walking barefoot on the cool grass on a hot day
- What are some of your favourite hobbies?
Self improvement. There’s always something new to discover, research or explore. .. in between I like to catch more sunsets. Horse riding, skiing and feet up on the sofa to balance it all out!
- What’s your favourite book and why?
This changes daily. I’m mostly non fiction. Since Christmas I’m loving Ben Greenfield’s Boundless and Dave Asprey’s Superhuman. Looking at my bookshelves as I type if it’s fiction it changes with the mood and environment .. but I was engrossed in The Gargoyle by A Davidson a while back. I do love a book where I can’t guess what’s going to happen.
- What is your must-have biohacking item in your house?
My NutriBullet .. starts my mornings smoothie style! .. by day and by night, my Oura.
