OneLife Suffolk Staff Donna - Stop Smoking Practitioner

Donna

Stop Smoking Practitioner

I have been working for One Life Suffolk for 3 years and have been a Stop Smoking practitioner for 5 years. I helped support a range of clients, some including people with COPD, mental health concerns and pregnancy. But mostly clients that have just had enough of smoking and finding it is affecting both their health and their finances.

I come from a fitness background working in leisure centres since college, and after having a successful career in the fitness industry, I found that I wanted to help people on a more one to one level. I became a Health Trainer and started working in GP surgeries supporting people on making a change with fitness, weight management and stop smoking.

Stopping Smoking then became my real passion as I used to be a smoker and could understand a client’s difficulties and could share my success and experience.

To be able to help someone stop smoking and help them live a longer, more enjoyable, and less restricted life is the best feeling – I love my job.

OneLife Suffolk Staff Amy - Smoking Cessation & NHS Health Checks Service Manager

Amy

Smoking Cessation & NHS Health Checks Service Manager

Hello, I’m Amy the Smoking Cessation & NHS Health Checks Service Manager here at OneLife. I am really lucky to manage two fantastic teams. I started out in smoking cessation back in 2014 when I was working with a mental health charity. I soon realised I loved helping people to quit smoking and wanted to specialise.

I swiftly went from being a Practitioner, to a Training Lead and on to manage the Suffolk service. While managing both services I am responsible for our strategic planning and ensuring we help as many people as possible make positive long-term changes to live longer, healthier, happier lives.

If you’re considering quitting, you’re in the best hands with our great team, who are all so passionate about supporting the community to quit for good!

OneLife Suffolk Staff Sue - Stop Smoking Practitioner

Sue

Stop Smoking Practitioner

Hello, I’m Sue.  I have been working for OneLife Suffolk for 5 years, and I have been a Stop Smoking Practitioner since 2002. My background is in nursing, and I qualified as a General Nurse several years ago.

Prior to working for OneLife Suffolk, I also worked as a Community Health Coach where I supported people wanting to make healthy lifestyle changes.  These lifestyle changes included weight management, physical fitness, healthy eating and smoking cessation.

Supporting people to quit smoking has been a passion of mine for many years. As an ex-smoker, my personal experience has helped me have a true understanding of the journey to become smoke free.  It is so rewarding to see people achieve their goals to become non-smokers, and other healthy lifestyle changes they make along the way.

In my spare time I enjoy long walks in the countryside, yoga, and spending time with my family and friends.

Stop Smoking Practitioner

Hi I’m Jon. I have been a Stop Smoking Practitioner working in North Suffolk for eleven years.

When I’m not helping people to stop smoking, I work as a specialist fitness instructor, specialising in Cardiac rehabilitation.

I like the challenges that the Stop Smoking service brings. Every client is different and I have to be able to adapt accordingly and think outside of the box.   

When I’m not working I like to cook, watch sport and run.
