Namrata Gulani

My name is Namrata Gulani and I am 33 years old female living in Auckland. My weight loss journey started three years ago when I had the gastric sleeve surgery and weighed 173 kgs. Prior to the surgery i lost 10 kgs. I got involved in therapy to learn and manage my emotional eating along with issues. I suffer from polycystic ovaries disorder and weight issues for most of my life. The journey was not easy as I spent a year in and out of hospital dealing with the unknown. My surgery was funded by counties district health board.
My recovery provided the much needed insight to managing my emotional eating and loosing weight. I would bring my personal experience and professional skills to the position. I work as a alcohol and drug therapist and have extensive experience working in mental health for the last 10 years. My focus is working with the LGBT community and homelesss population. In my free time I play the saxophone and watch movies. I am also a member of St John’s Rotary Club.
