About me

I am an experienced nutritional therapist, but with a medical background. This rare combination of experience gives me greater insight than many into your issues and their solution. I offer one to one nutritional support, as well as support to small businesses and corporate organisations.

I provide unique answers to your unique requirement. I use my training, experience and support from my many healthcare contacts to create your own specific programme. It is holistic, it centres on you and it answers your particular nutrition and lifestyle needs.

My passion is to help patients enjoy life once more and become aware about nutrition’s role in their health.

"I'd recommend a session with Amanda to anyone wanting to feel the benefits of a improved diet." Susan

I use my training and experience to create a programme to answer your particular nutrition and lifestyle needs.

The typical outcome is:

  • Information about your health concerns
  • Your Strategy for Health, a plan to help you achieve your health goals.
  • Dietary recommendations to solve your particular symptoms
  • Supplement recommendations, if appropriate
  • Tips on healthy eating
  • Recipe suggestions for inspiration and encouragement

I also offer functional testing as part of my services. I would discuss with you the benefits and limitations of the recommended tests. Most tests are non-invasive (requiring urine or saliva) or semi-invasive (requiring blood spot). Tests that require blood draw are also offered.

  • Food Intolerances & allergy (York Test, CYREX)
  • Digestion - comprehensive stool analysis, intestinal permeability (Genova, Nordic Laboratories)
  • Endocrine - Adrenal Stress test, Thyroid, sex hormones
  • Bone resorption test (an assessment for bone loss in post menopausal women)
  • Hair mineral analysis
  • Vitamin D tests
  • DNA testing (DNA life certification)

Training, qualifications & experience

Registered General Nurse (RGN) - St Mary's Hospital, London
BSc (hons) Biological Science - Aston University, Birmingham
PhD Cardiovascular Pharmacology - King's College, London
DipION - Institute of Option Nutrition, London

I am an accredited member of the Nutritional Therapy Council (NTC), a registered member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), and the Complementary and Natural healthcare Council (CNHC).

I made the decision to re-train as a nutritional therapist with the Institute of Optimum Nutritional in London, where I consolidated my scientific understanding of nutrition and gained valuable clinical experience in consulting with people who required nutritional support.

I believe in making a difference to my patients by offering a science-based, functional medicine approach to nutritional therapy.

I continue to consolidate my experience and training by attending Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course. These are a requirement of my professional body, but more importantly, they enable me to offer the very best service to my patients.

Please see my website (eatyourselfwell.co.uk) for the latest courses I have attended.

Further information

Initial consultations take up to 50 minutes. This enables you to discuss your family and personal medical history, your current symptoms / health concerns and any medication or supplements that you are currently taking.  I will conduct a thorough review of your diet and lifestyle diary and explore appropriate dietary and lifestyle changes with you. I will then make recommendations which will enable you to fulfil your health goals.

At the initial consultation, we will discuss the number of consultations that it is likely that you will require; this is dependent on your health goals, but a minimum of 2 visits are recommended in order to ensure that I can support you to meet your health needs.

Follow up consultations take up to 40 minutes. In this consultation I will review your progress against your strategy for health, and your dietary and lifestyle recommendations. Modifications may be made to further support your individual requirements as required.
