About me

Ami is a Registered Nutritional Therapist and zest4life Weight Loss Coach who is passionate about health and wellbeing. She set up Buckthorn Health with a core aim to inspire, educate and inform you on how to make the best dietary and lifestyle choices to achieve optimum health.

There is a lot of conflicting advice available in the public domain nowadays and achieving a healthy lifestyle to suit your circumstances can be confusing and stressful. We are all unique and Ami believes there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Each person's biochemistry is very different, not to mention a difference in mindset, motivation, work and family life, genetic background, living environment, food likes/dislikes etc.

At Buckthorn Health we recognise these differences and use the functional medicine approach to create a nutrition and lifestyle plan to suit you and your individual needs.

Ami runs regular Nutrition clinics in Prestbury and central Cheltenham. Home visits can be arranged on request.

Weekly zest4life health and weight loss coaching sessions are also available on a one-to-one basis or as part of a small friendly group.

Basic body composition assessments are available for those who just want to know what their fat to muscle ratio is. Ami uses a Tanita Body Composition Analyser to measure body fat mass, muscle mass and total body water, all in a matter of seconds.

Further information


Kay S: I had no idea what was wrong with me, and it seemed like I was going to have to live like this forever. This was in August last year, and after dramatically changing my lifestyle and diet (as advised by Ami) I am feeling so much better and no longer crave sugary foods! The difference is unbelievable. I cannot thank you enough Ami! :)

Lucy S: I can highly recommend Ami! One month ago I was like a different person health wise: I had cravings all the time, was hungry most of the time, I had 3-4 cups of coffee a day and I felt generally ill. I had noticed that the pounds were starting to pile on. Ami started coaching me through a nutrition program, which is the most sensible diet I have ever been on. The first day was hard without the coffee and sugar but after 2 – 3 days I really started to feel good. My energy was more constant and my cravings had gone away. I then realised how much mental attention cravings can consume!
In a month I have lost about half a stone (3.5kg) and can really see that I have changed shape. So much has changed in a month and I cannot believe how simple and easy and it has all been. Ami was great coaching me through weekly and giving me the motivation and advice that I needed. With Ami’s guidance I feel so much better, more confident and feel well again. Thank you so much, Ami!

Martin O: This is fantastic! I am feeling more energised, I am sleeping much better and I am not feeling hungry, either during the day or in the night. THANK YOU! I attribute this to my new eating regime and exercise - Ami, thank you!! I feel so much better (9lbs lighter too!) and I shall recommend Ami unreservedly to anyone who needs help.
