Health education sessions in Cape Town


In collaboration with Milnerton Medi Clinic and Kenilworth Medicross, we have recently started implementing small group health education sessions, and I would like to invite you to attend. The aim of this initiative is to make health education fun and accessible to everyone, with excellent, sustainable results. I firmly believe that knowledge is power, particularly when it comes to our health, and unfortunately there are too many people around who have not been given enough knowledge to look after themselves properly.

If you feel that someone you care about would benefit from accurate medical advice, with step by step guidance and a whole lot of empathy, please pass this information forward.

Kind regards
Health Coach

The session lasts up to one and a half hours. You will be given an informal lecture on the topic of discussion and then have the opportunity to ask questions. The group is small to allow each person to be interactive, to share their own experience and get personalized advice. Notes and meal plans/diet sheets will be given where applicable. Refreshments will also be served.

The registration form needs to be emailed or faxed to in order to book a place. Fax number is 086 594 7777 and email is adfinlwc at

Places are available on a first come first served basis, and they are limited to maximum 10 per group, so if you are keen please register by sending the above information as quickly as possible to avoid disappointment. You will then be sent the bank details. A place can be held for you for 48 hours, after which you will need to have made payment and faxed/emailed proof of this. This will then secure your booking.
