Our Coaches

Hannah Parry

Senior Health and Wellbeing Coach

I work on Adult Weight Management, Eat Well and Your Support. I went to Leeds Beckett university and qualified with a BSC in Sport and Exercise Science and used this to work with the community in One You Leeds.  I love to help people achieve their goals and see people making amazing changes to their lifestyle. In my spare time, I love going on long walks with my dog and experiment with cooking new foods and recipes. I am also very passionate about hockey and play every week with my club. 

Dalia Hawley

Manage Your Weight and Eat Better

The best part of my job for me is helping people to understand that fad diets are not necessary to lose weight. It’s key for me to support them in changing a negative narrative and language around food and eating habits too. Outside of work I can often be found running across muddy woodland trails and hills or cycling on and off road. I have recently got into gardening and I am looking forward to growing sunflowers and various veg in Spring.

Heather Richmond

Manage Your Weight and Eat Better

I have just recently joined the One You Leeds team in 2020 as one of the Health and Wellbeing coaches. In this role I work within Manage Your Weight, Eat Better and Your Support services. I am really enjoying meeting lots of people and helping them make positive changes. In my spare time I love being outdoors and going on long walks in the countryside. I also love the theatre and all things musical.

Marie Leadsford

I have been part of One You Leeds since the programme started in 2017.  What I love about my job is the feeling of satisfaction I get from meeting all different kinds of people in the community and seeing them make some fantastic changes to their lifestyle.   Most of my spare time is spent with my 2 precious grandsons who keep me fit and healthy and I love going out for long walks in the fresh air.

As Health & Wellbeing Manager I am responsible for the overall running and performance of One You Leeds. I am passionate about ensuring the service reaches those who will benefit from it and that best service possible is delivered to our participants. As an integrated health service, the integration is important not only with the different support options we deliver, but also with other services in Leeds. We are always looking to work with partners to do this effectively. In my spare time I enjoy quality family time, particularly long muddy walks, and games nights.
