Meet Dr Aishah Iqbal

Hi! My name is Aishah and I wear many different coloured headscarves in my professional career.

I'm a medical doctor specialising in paediatrics, a weight loss coach, an NLP practitioner, a transformational life coach and a personal trainer.

I know...I must love taking exams and collecting certificates :)

I've always been passionate about health, fitness and wellbeing. Medical school was great and I love being a doctor - but I soon realised that the health support I wanted to give people looked slightly different.

Whilst at medical school, a love for health and fitness led to me qualifying as a personal trainer and using my skills to support women on their fitness journey. Over the years, I started to realise that achieving health and weight management goals was far more than seeing a number drop on the scales. The quest for weight loss means more than losing fat - it's often a smokescreen for struggles, difficulties and questions that can't always be put into words.

I've spent years studying and researching the factors that play a part to achieving weight loss. I've now created my own unique approach to weight loss, bringing together my knowledge and experience of fitness, health, neurolinguistic programming and motherhood!

You can learn more about my methods through listening to my podcast "Mind Over Diets" on your favourite podcast app.

What Others Say

Before I met Aishah, I was sort of sitting in a deep, dark forest full of information about weight loss and healthy options. Aishah guided me. I have radically changed my mindset thanks to her and I know that my journey to losing weight is just that: a happy, peaceful journey NOT a marathon.


Aishah's realistic knowledge of the stresses working in the NHS made me a lot more comfortable talking about my barriers to healthy living. I found it really useful externalising my thoughts as it made me think of realistic solutions and small goals.

Anon, Doctor

I found a coaching session with Aishah very useful. It has helped me identify the culprits to my weight loss journey and also allowed me to set up achievable goals and empower me to carry on in a useful way.
