Testimonials:

"When you work with Dr Heather McKee you know you are in the presence of a true professional. You cannot ignore the passion she has for her field of behaviour change, especially around food and healthy living. But she goes beyond advising on the basis of what she already knows. She continues to learn and develop her own knowledge, and at the same time, she is equally committed to making sure that you -- client, patient or project partner -- understand the key facts, appreciate the context and embrace the decisions you made together.

She is a born teacher and a determined task master wrapped up in intellectual curiosity, the pursuit of excellence, empathy for you and pride in your success in reaching goals, all delivered with the nicest of smiles, a relaxed manner and a calmness which is very inspiring. Heather's presence and contribution has a calming effect because you trust her and you therefore enjoy working together."
- Edna Kissman CEO of The Wonder of Me
