Gillian is Clinic Manager for Leeds and Harrogate. Leeds born and bred, she has been married 13 years (and with the company the same amount of time!)
Very family oriented, Gillian enjoys long Sunday walks with their family dog, Max. An avid believer in practising what she preaches, Gillian loves to live an active lifestyle, seeing a personal trainer weekly, and even encouraging her 14 year old son to get involved! Gillian also has a 27 year old daughter.
A balanced life is always important, so Gillian loves to indulge in the occasional bottomless brunch as a good excuse for a catch-up with friends.
We asked Gillian a quick Q&A on all things Alevere to get a deeper understanding of a face behind the brand: –
What do you enjoy most about working for Alevere?
It has to be seeing the transformation of patients, from their first day walking through our doors to their final treatment, and the smiles on their faces knowing how far they’ve come.
The changes are amazing and so satisfying to see… I love that we are helping people become healthy, changing their lives for the better!
What surprises you about the clients?
Their determination and commitment to succeed.
Why do you work for Alevere?
Well, I have worked here since 2008 across various roles, so something is certainly keeping me here! (Ha ha). I put it down to the amazing team culture we have. Everyone is so approachable and eager to help one another, showing genuine care for team members and patients alike.
What is the most challenging part of your role?
Stabilisation… Getting a patient to realise that they may have done the hard work in reaching their target weight, but the most important stages are yet to come, and our team are here to help them maintain everything they’ve achieved.
How would you describe Alevere in three words?
Healthy life begins!
What can clients expect when they have their first appointment?
First things first, patients will always be greeted with a warm welcome to help ease their nerves. Our team will then walk them through how the process is going to work, and take key measurements including bloods and body composition metrics to gauge their own individual starting point. These first sessions always leave patients eager to kickstart their weight loss journey.
Why is Alevere different?
The level of support and care delivered, both throughout our programme and beyond it’s completion with our excellent aftercare service, Alevere Balance. Our dedicated staff will go out of their way to help every single patient succeed.
