Q&A with Dr. Parisha
What does ‘honest ageing’ mean to you?
Honest ageing to me means embracing age and, in doing so, learning from your past, celebrating your experience and using this confidence to empower yourself. Ageing is inevitable so why not use the wisdom of our years to our advantage and make subtle tweaks that will allow us to age gracefully whilst still maintaining inner beauty and self confidence?
What is your favourite part of your role at WY?
I have always loved working with people and helping them achieve the best and this is the reason I trained as a doctor. And now at WY I have the opportunity to combine this with Wellbeing, which has been a specific passion of mine since 2015 when I decided to do more to achieve overall wellbeing for myself, so I could pass on the benefits of this to my patients. Through my own study of our physicality and nutrition I know how important it is to fuel both body and mind. Seeing a patient beaming with confidence is my ultimate goal, I want to help people feel good from inside out and I am so happy I get to do this everyday at WY.
What do you think is the next big trend in Skin and beauty?
Treat your body as you do your face! We are seeing a surge of full body acceptance and increasingly more and more people want to take care of their whole selves. Combining wellness, supplements and skincare will ultimately make for an all round approach to conscious ageing that we will feel in our bodies and see on our faces.
Why is now the time to have a conscious approach to skin and life?
When we focus on wellness and make the choice to engage in a lifestyle that promotes overall wellbeing, this results in improved confidence and helps your inner shine sparkle outward. It is never too late and by looking at our own nutrition, lifestyle choices and products we use, we can notice the impact our skin and switch to those that will help us achieve a happier healthier lifestyle.
What is one tweak you have made to your wellbeing routine that has made a big difference in the last year?
I completed a Philosophy of yoga course through Oxford University in 2016 which taught me a great deal about mindfulness and has helped me understand the benefits of yogic breathing and meditation and I often use these teachings in my day to day. Stress is inevitable in our fast paced lifestyles but learning to use it to your advantage is key. Over the last year I have started to take time to meditate in the mornings, this is a simple activity that I perform prior to planning my day and allows me to fully focus on myself and specific tasks. I have really noticed the difference it makes!
What are your favourite things to do when you are not in the clinic?
Outside of the clinic my passion is horses. I love riding and caring for horses. I completed my stable management course last year and am currently training to take part in dressage competitions. Travelling and learning about new and different cultures are also passions of mine and I get away when I can.
