Alex Howard

Alex Howard is Founder and Chairman of The Optimum Health Clinic (OHC), one of the world’s leading integrative medicine clinics specialising in fatigue. With a team of 20 full time practitioners supporting thousands of patients in 50+ countries, the OHC team have pioneered working with patients remotely since 2005.

Along with founding and leading the OHC practitioner teams for the past 17 years, Alex is an immensely experienced psychology practitioner, having delivered over 10,000 consultations. He has also led the Therapeutic Coaching practitioner programme since 2005, training the next generation of psychology practitioners. Since March 2020, Alex has been documenting his therapeutic work with real life patients via his In Therapy with Alex Howard YouTube series.

In the last few years, Alex has created some of the largest online conferences in the health and mind–body markets; including the Fatigue Super Conference, and the Trauma & Mind Body Super Conference. Alex’s online conferences have been attended by over a quarter of a million people.

Alex has published research in publications such as the British Medical Journal Open and Psychology and Health. Alex is also the author of Why Me?: My Journey from ME to Health and Happiness, and his second book Decode Your Fatigue: A clinically proven 12-step plan to increase your energy, heal your body and transform your life is being published in May 2021 with Hay House.

Kirsty Cullen

Kirsty’s interest in nutrition began as a consequence of health issues experienced by her own daughter, and later evolved due to her own mother’s experience with ME/CFS. After seeing significant improvement using nutritional therapy, Kirsty made the decision to become a practitioner herself and leave a successful corporate career.  Following graduation Kirsty worked in the corporate wellness sector and also undertook a number of nutrition roles within the professional sports arena, assessing and advising football managers and elite athletes on health and nutrition. Kirsty also worked as Lead Nutritional Therapist at Derby County Football Club. Kirsty joined the team at the Optimum Health Clinic in 2011 working within the nutrition support team initially, followed by a role within the practitioner team and then subsequently as Director of Nutrition for the clinic, before becoming CEO in 2020.

Sara Jackson

Having worked in senior management roles in the fashion industry most of her career, a cancer diagnosis caused Sara to explore the life-changing benefits of nutrition and integrative medicine to assist her recovery and stay well. The power of natural medicine resonated so much with her that she retrained as a nutritional therapist and naturopath and had a successful private practice before joining OHC. Sara has a special interest in complex case management and a breadth of knowledge and experience across many diseases and health conditions. Sara is a passionate, calm and caring clinician with acute sensitivity to her clients’ needs. Sara has a proven track record, supporting her client’s recovery journeys with evidence-based nutritional guidance that has transformed the health and life of hundreds of individuals. 

Claire Sehinson

Having recovered fully from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia and complex illness, Claire has a wealth of personal experience and knowledge to share. She has completed an MSc in Personalised Nutrition, AFMCP (Functional medicine in practice), NLP practitioner training (neurolinguistic programming) and clinical neuroscience modules whilst contributing to research in Autistic spectrum disorders. Claire has lectured in Biomedicine and continues to teach Chronic Fatigue Syndrome at several of the top nutritional therapy colleges in the UK. She contributed a chapter to Case Studies in Personalised Nutrition (a textbook for health practitioners and students). Before starting a career in functional medicine, Claire was a classical pianist in training and now works with individuals in the music industry with a focus on psychiatric and mental wellness, addictions and overall resilience in a very challenging and pressured industry.

Anna Duschinsky

Anna was the founding Director of Psychology at The Optimum Health Clinic, where for ten years she was responsible for developing the foundations of the Psychology department to its current level of international recognition. Anna holds a degree in Languages and Linguistics from Cambridge University, and has numerous qualifications in solution based psychological approaches to mind-body healing. For the last 15 years she has co-trained the Therapeutic Coaching practitioner training with Alex Howard, where she is now Course Director.
