"Heather was put in my path for a reason. Over the course of our sessions a light bulb went off with me!!! That’s when it all changed for the better"

Orla

"It's a different way of thinking, a different perspective. All diets fail this isn’t a diet it’s different it’s a lifestyle change it helps look at the behaviours behind why you eat rather than just solving the symptoms. It shows you if you take small but deliberate actions what the cumulative changes would be. I certainly feel positive I’m heading in the right direction. This isn’t a quick fix its looking at your motivation – changing your mindset and that helps change your behaviours."

Colm

"It’s really been a light bulb revelation that doing things I don’t enjoy or that feel like punishment for quick results is only going to be detrimental to my mind-set, progress and maintenance in the long run. Starting as you mean to go on is a good way to describe it!"

Sarah C. - Course Participant

"Heather has so generously contributed to so many areas of our work this year, her thoughtful feedback and insights have allowed us to evolve our work and product in profound and impactful ways. I speak on behalf of all of us when I say we can’t imagine having done it without her unique, informed perspective and diverse voice. She has made an incredible amount of impact on our work in a small amount of time and we are so grateful for her."

Sara Rice (R&D), lululemon HQ

"I am enjoying it because it’s nothing like other programmes, all the other drastic changes in the past. I like that I am seeing these changes and that is my reward rather than focusing on scales, I’m focused on the daily processes. I feel this approach is different as it is changing how you think. You are doing something positive for yourself and you can see if you continue to make changes that can spiral and other changes and how that translates into the long term impact."

Alanna - Course Participant

"Heather is a very natural and talented speaker who speaks with warmth and a genuine passion for her subject. Heather is always a delight to work with - very professional, engaging and a true expert in her field. Heather is extremely passionate about helping others and manages to take quite complicated scientific research and make it easy and accessible to all."

Rebecca Fairbrother - Founder - Well Aware

"Heather was put in my path for a reason. Over the course of the work a light bulb went off with me!!! That’s when it all changed for the better"

Orla - Course Participant

"Working with Heather was a pleasure from start to finish. From crafting engaging and action-based workshops, through to delivering them with a professional yet natural ease, her passion for her subject really shines through. All of the attendees felt empowered and fully equipped to build on their healthy habits!"

Sally Florey - Unmind

"It's a different way of thinking, a different perspective. All diets fail this isn’t a diet it’s different it’s a lifestyle change it helps look at the behaviours behind why you eat rather than just solving the symptoms. It shows you if you take small but deliberate actions what the cumulative changes would be. I certainly feel positive I’m heading in the right direction. This isn’t a quick fix its looking at your motivation – changing your mindset and that helps change your behaviours."

Colm - Course Participant

"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 healthy living. She is 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."

Edna Kissman - CEO - The Wonder of Me

"I understand myself better, for the most part I have learned that this is a journey of self-exploration. Think I am in a much better place to make sustained progress. I would recommend this programme to others and would be interested in continuing myself."

Jo - Course Participant

"Heather delivered a perfect, succinct, workshop. Heather was great - it was all digestible and really helpful. After a long day at work, a powerful hour was perfect."

Phoebe - MOS

"This programme is different from everything else you’ve ever done. It wasn’t just loads of advice. I liked learning and thinking about my goals – it wasn’t about someone else, it was about me specifically. We all know what we need to do, we need to exercise more and eat better but this was a different approach, it was empowering."

Cathy - Course Participant

"Heather is a ninja when it comes to behaviour change, and a delight to work with. She has been invaluable to BetterSpace in working out how to nudge people into more mentally health lifestyles."

BetterSpace

"It flipped things around and changed my perspective on weight loss for life. It helped me feel more positive in myself – better in myself."

Alex M. - Course Participant

"Heather presented in a very relaxed manner in a way I really felt I could relate with her. She supported me to take a completely different attitude to instilling new habits."

Small changes, big results talk - Havas

"It made me feel like I wanted to be healthier and I wanted to look after myself and make healthier choices. This is the way forward and everyone should know about it."

Barbara - Course Participant

"Heather’s academic and applied understanding of behavioural psychology has been invaluable in helping us mould our proposition to the corporate wellbeing market over the last 12 months. Heather was a perfect fit with our culture; enthusiastic, diligent and highly skilled in everything that she does. We look forward to working with Heather on future projects"

Richard Westman - CEO - KAIDO

"As soon as I started it – I knew it was for me, it wasn’t a fad or a gimmick. It made me exercise more without even realising it. It made me feel so positive, it didn’t feel like a big effort like other programmes. It felt simple and over the course of it, it all trickles down and you start to feel so positive, more relaxed, happy and less stressed."

Sandra - Course Participant

"Really informative, engaging, interactive and relevant to my everyday life, the speaker really knew her stuff!"

The Science of Motivation talk - La Salle

"There has definitely been a noticeable shift in my outlook, approach and behaviour since I’ve started the programme. I feel encouraged to keep going, to play to my strengths. I think most people would benefit from evaluating their behaviours, mind set and skills in this way to reach their lifestyle goals, regardless of whether or not they are weight loss related."

Sarah - Course Participant

"Heather's practical knowledge and expertise around behaviour change have been an enormous value-add for the Welltodo audience. By incorporating her tools and insights into our course curriculum, we were able to add a whole new layer of credibility. Heather is professional, reliable and an absolute pleasure to work with!"

Lauren Armes - CEO - Welltodo

"Doing the programme was a light bulb moment for me, it became 100% obvious to me where I had failed in the past and what I should do in the future. I feel so much more in control of my weight now but not only that I feel stronger, more relaxed and happier."

Cathy D. - Course Participant

"Dr Heather McKee’s programme is not restrictive at all in fact it makes you think positively about your health for once, focusing on all the positives you are doing rather than beating yourself up for what you aren’t doing. I’m almost mid way through but can already see how all these changes have a knock on effect and will snowball over time."

Anna - Course Participant

"For the first time in a very very long time I feel that there is hope. With the help of Dr Heather McKee I have been able understand what triggers me to make unhealthy choices and to put in place plans for when these situations occur - particularly stress and fatigue and also to be a lot more gentle on myself. I highly recommend Dr Heather McKee particularly to those who like me struggle with motivation, willpower and have tried and tried and tried to no avail."

Joe - Course Participant

"Most programmes out there in the food/fitness/lifestyle industry focus on the specifics of what you need to do/eat to achieve your goal and completely ignore addressing the underlying mind set, goal setting and skill building, I feel there is definitely a need for Heathers combined approach to promote sustainable goal attainment."

Sarah - Course Participant

"This programme is a kind yet powerful way to embark on a new and healthy relationship with yourself"

Victoria - Course Participant

"The programme was revealing and interesting. The skills learned are invaluable in understanding behaviours in all areas of your life and choosing different more helpful ways to achieving your goals."

Elaine B - Course Participant

“Heather delivered the session in a clear, easy to digest way that gave everyone some tangible ways to make lasting habit changes. Understanding why those good intentions don’t stick is key to making ones that do!”

Nikki, Unilever

"Talking to Heather was a relief in terms of being able to express how I'm feeling without being judged."

Laura

"This programme is different from everything else you’ve ever done. It wasn’t just loads of advice.
