Gordian Health was founded by Fiona and Lee Kennedy in. 2013. We saw a need for a new approach to helping our clients with their health and fitness. We wanted to make use of our training and experience in nursing, medicine, fitness, nutrition and project management.
Our approach is client centred and enabling. Evidence-based wherever possible and integrative – using knowledge that cuts across many disciplines. It is not just about the two of us trying to help you get the best of your health. It is about working with other partitioners who are also trying to help you and about introducing you to our associates when we think that they may be able to help you.
