Hello, my name is Ioanna Nixon, and I am a Doctor with many years of experience in cancer management, an Educator, and a Coach. As a Doctor and a Coach, fuelled by my passion to prevent disease, alleviate symptoms, and help people live heathy, long lives, I combine my deep knowledge of medicine, and prevention, with my coaching skills to help others optimise their health, balance, wellbeing, and resilience.

I am the Founder of The Empower Clinic, an online forum marrying medical, science-based knowledge and coaching, where coaching by doctors, who are also coaches, is finally realised! This to support anyone who wishes to understand health, disease, and prevention, improve their wellbeing, and achieve life-style long-lasting changes to transform their lives. In the Empower Clinic we are connecting the dots, creating coaching opportunities for people and teams, tailored to their unique needs.

My many years of experience treating disease, and my research work on people with chronic disease lived experience identified this big gap in terms of support, information and education for people on how to stay well and prevent disease, and also how to manage symptoms and be well in the presence of a disease.

My mission is to help and support anyone with ill-health, including cancer, through evidence-based education and practical tools to improve their wellbeing and resilience and feel empowered and in control.

How we in the Empower Clinic help people and teams

Did you know:

  • By 2023, 7 in 10 people aged over 65 are expected to live with multiple health conditions Although people live longer, many of these additional years are spent with health problems, some of which could be prevented through lifestyle interventions, where coaching can help.
    Chronic conditions, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune diseases are common diseases where there is currently no cure. 1 in 3 people in the UK living with at least 1 chronic condition. About 30 per cent of these chronic conditions can be prevented or put on remission through life-style interventions, where coaching can help.
    How? We will help you understand what is causing your ill-health, control your illness and reverse symptoms where possible through sustainable life-style changes, enabling you feel empowered and in control.

  • Cancer is more common than we think, with 1 out of 2 people in the UK developing a cancer during their life span. Despite evolution in cancer treatments, research and lived experience from people with cancer suggests treatment is difficult, associated with many side effects, some of which are long lasting. Coaching can help to improve these. 
    How? We will help you understand the side effects of the treatment, share evidence – based knowledge and the practical tools to make and sustain all changes to achieve your health goals, boost your resilience and self-confidence and live a great life.
    Living with a chronic condition is challenging, but, YES, you can achieve your optimum health goals. Yes, you can. I can help.

  • Burn out amongst employees in health care and beyond is a common phenomenon. Mental health illness in employees with burnout or chronic diseases is 50% higher. Sick absenteeism in employees with burn-out and chronic diseases is quadruple the size compared to others, affecting your team’s performance, morale, and resilience. Wellbeing and Resilience Coaching can help individuals and teams with burn-out prevention and recovery, re-invigorate teams to achieve high performance targets and thrive.
