In-depth analysis of food intake, medical history & lifestyle are used to get to the root of your health concerns. My aim is to promote optimal health & vitality using food as medicine. I work in a gentle manner providing detailed nutrition plans that are fully customised to fit with your life. Balance and variety are a key part of my philosophy.
Amongst the many conditions that I work with, those more common are problems with bloating, bowels, hormonal imbalances, skin conditions, joint problems, allergies and weight loss.
I run informal, inspiring workshops for 6-8 people around my dining room table, using food to really demonstrate key nutrients, how easy it is to create exciting, tasty, nutritionally balanced meals & snacks.
Workshop themes have been a variety of areas:
- children's health
- eating well on a budget
- hormone balancing
- gluten free cooking
- how to eat anti-inflammatory foods
- men's health
Training, qualifications & experience
Amber Silverman, Dip CNM, Bsc Psych, mBANT
I am an experienced, practicing and qualified Nutritional Therapist, having studied for three years at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London. I do regular professional development training and am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT).
Before throwing my heart and soul into nutritional therapy, I studied Psychology at Manchester University, and worked for several years as a management consultant in the manufacturing industry, followed by a stint as a project manager in the design industry.
Cooking and food, however, has always been a great love of mine. When I became a mother - and had more mouths to feed - my interest in the health side of what we were consuming grew. As I learned more I realised that what I fed my children could really have an impact on their health and well-being. This led me naturally down the route to nutritional therapy.
Some years later, through my studies and my work in the field with many dozens of individuals, I now see food as not only a way to improve my family's health day-to-day, but also as a medicine for numerous ailments and illnesses. I love sharing my knowledge and clinical experience - and seeing first hand how my clients can quickly and sometimes dramatically improve their health by making some minor - and sometimes less minor - changes.
I work one-to-one or with small family groups (parents, children, couples etc) and I also work with larger groups as a lecturer, or in a more informal workshop format. These workshops take place in my or someone else's kitchen or round a dining table. Sessions usually focus on a particular area of food and wellness and I find these a particularly effective way to share information in a way which allows those who attend to easily integrate what they learn into their lives. I'm truly passionate about what I do and I invite you to contact me to find out more, so I can inspire you too!
