The magazine, which claims to be Scotland’s only health and wellbeing print title, has recruited veteran journalist and broadcaster JJ Stenhouse to the role.
JJ joins Good Health Magazine after a long career in journalism, having trained in regional newspapers and worked on Fleet Street and national magazines before moving on to work for broadcasters including Channel 4, ITN, Sky, and NBC.
She has delivered media training and coaching, as well as communications consulting, to an extensive portfolio of public and private sector organisations worldwide.
Away from the media, she describes herself as a “medical intuitive, who promotes a holistic and natural approach to health.”
Her appointment follows former publishing editor Lynda Hamilton Parker’s decision to step down as editor to focus on business development and marketing.
Lynda is the founder of Good Health, Wellbeing & The Great Outdoors, which was formerly known as Holistic Scotland Magazine between 2018 and 2020.
She now takes up the position of Head of Sales, Digital & Marketing as the magazine moves to a new, larger format, just shy of A4.
Lynda said: “I’m really excited for this next stage in the magazine’s journey and I couldn’t have a greater woman at the helm.
“The magazine continues to grow, in more ways than one, and both JJ and I look forward to embracing this next stage in its life cycle.”
JJ hosts her own internet radio show, Alchemy 1.01, which focuses on personal transformation through re-connection with nature, on UK Health Radio.
She is qualified in the psychology of communication and non-verbal intelligence and continues to offer speaker coaching within the health and wellbeing sector.
JJ, who is also Scotland’s Global Business Connector for Women Speakers Association, said: “I’m delighted to be editing a magazine that aligns so closely with my passion of living in harmony with nature.
“Scotland has so much to offer and I’m looking forward to giving people in the natural wellbeing world a voice, as well as highlighting our country’s excellent products, services and innovations.”
The consumer title is free to pick up Scotland-wide from most independent health retailers, all Curves clubs and Maggie’s centres, and many other outlets across the country, say the publishers.
