Hello, I'm Dr. Gina Cleo

Habit Researcher | Author | Founder

I started my career as a dietitian, mainly working with clients who wanted to improve their health and wellbeing. I soon realised that unless people sustained their behaviour, they would only achieve short-term success...this started my fascination for habits.


Why do we lose motivation? Why do 90% of New Year’s Resolutions fail? How do we reach and maintain our goals?

We’ve been told that success requires big changes (the ‘go hard or go home’ mentality), but it's actually the simple actions, repeated over time, that will determine the life you lead. Our habits are the invisible blueprint of our life and we have the power to change them.

I’ve conducted habit-based research studies, published multiple scientific articles and presented at conferences around the world. I’m thrilled to bring you the Habit Practitioner program (it’s been years in the making).

Learning the skill of habit change truly changed my life and I’m confident it will change yours and your client's too.

Really excited to be trained by Dr. Gina Cleo and become a Certified Habit Practitioner! I have worked with Dr Cleo’s evidence with clients for almost 2 yrs.

Health Coach, Aus

I have always been curious about why people behave the way they do and this has underpinned my work so far, but this knowledge as a Habit Practitioner is deepening my understanding and strengthening my ability to bring about more significant and long-lasting change. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity and look forward to continued learning from and sharing with this new community of friends and practitioners.
