Rachel McGuinness

Rachel McGuinness, Wake Up With Zest. Rachel McGuinness is a workplace wellbeing expert. Up until 2004 she worked in marketing and events in the telecoms industry. Since then she’s been helping business people to get healthy and reclaim their energy, so they can get back on their game in a more sustainable way.

In the year 2000 she realised that her busy corporate life had caused her to become so unhealthy that she was heading for burnout and some serious health issues. She decided to completely change how she lived her life. She got into a proper sleep routine, adopted a cleaner approach to eating, got a handle on her stress levels and added regular exercise to her daily habits. Now she is just over 44lbs lighter and four dress sizes smaller.

She is trained in cognitive behaviour therapy for insomnia, mental health first aid, nutrition, personal fitness training, stress management, neuro linguistic programming and hypnotherapy. Rachel works all over the UK and Europe, predominantly working with forward thinking businesses in the technology, health and travel sectors who understand the benefits of looking after the mental and physical wellbeing of their employees.
