Our Approach to your weight loss journey
We combine the Skinni Jab with our own weight loss plan is called "The Kickstarter Plan". It is a simple and sustainable weight loss and wellness plan that works. We provide coaching, mentoring and ongoing support for you to help our clients lead healthier, happier and more fulfilled lifestyles. To help you lose weight but also to maintain it in the future. Our support does not stop when you lose weight - we help you in maintaining it.
We believe in taking a "holistic approach" to your wellness and weight loss journey. This means we approach your weight loss journey by focussing on you as a "whole". Rather than focusing on one area in your life - we look at the complete picture.
It was our founder's own struggle with her weight and emotional wellbeing that lead her to create our own weight loss plan. When Saxenda® first launched in the U.K she spent the first year using it on and off and failing miserably. Even with Saxenda®, she couldn't lose weight. That really did make her feel like a failure. She felt inspired to help others after eventually achieving her wellness goals through her own "plan" which included the Skinny Jab as one of the contributing factors. You can read more about her journey here in the Skinny Jab Diaries here., and find out how she got weight loss medication to work for her.
Yasmin is overwhelmingly enthusiastic in helping others on their weight loss journey, she hopes with her plan it won't be as much of a struggle. She has used her own struggle and barriers she came across to create the plan which has led to her own successful weight loss.
The middle of 2017 was the year of the start of my Skinny Jab journey. I spent a whole year buying Saxenda - taking it on, off, on, off, binning it, giving up on it and starting all over again. This left me de-moralised, deflated, financially poorer and really, really miserable!
Feeling such a failure - that this FDA approved weight loss medication was not even working for me. I eventually created my own plan - by putting all the pieces of the jigsaw together. The Skinny Jab was part of the plan - but I stress it is not a magic wand, it helped me control my hunger pangs and cravings. But it was not the whole story.
It was successful in helping me lose weight combined with other factors. I lost three stone in weight and took control of my life again, you can do the same!

Founder, Wellness Coach & Trainee Psychotherapist
Doctor Consultant and Medical Advisor
Since receiving my medical degree in 2001, I have attained a great amount of experience. This includes working in some of the best hospitals known for the best care in the Midlands. I have worked alongside some of the best doctors, nurses and allied professionals in the country. Currently, I am an accident and emergency doctor at a major trauma centre based in the West Midlands. I have also worked in the fields of Neurosurgery, Cardiology, Trauma and Orthopaedics, General Surgery, Acute Medicine, Diabetes, Vascular Surgery and Paediatrics.
My career so far has allowed me to develop excellent communication skills with both colleagues and patients. It has helped me to develop an appreciation of the vital bond between patient and doctor. I believe one-to-one care, listening, empathy, compassion and the understanding of confidentiality issues are key components. Many patients have complimented me for my honest, sympathetic and non-judgmental approach. This was reflected in a recent patient feedback assessment completed as part of the GMC doctor revalidation programme.
As well as strong patient diagnosis and management skills, I have also developed skills in data collection, analysis and I.T. I am responsible for coordinating and monitoring the network of medical consultants for Skinni Jab.
