Good nutrition is the foundation for good health. My aim is to help each of my clients to optimise their health and improve their quality of life. I am committed to evidence-based practice of the highest standard, and regulation of the nutritional therapy profession.
How can I help You?
We are all unique, and we therefore all have different nutritional and dietary needs. My clients seek nutritional therapy for many different reasons. Many of my clients have complex health histories and have experienced chronic ill health, and are looking for help with recovery. I also work with clients looking to optimise their health, perhaps being aware of risk factors and family history. I also work with clients with complex health issues that affect their sports performance.
What To Expect
Before your first session I will ask you to fill in a detailed questionnaire so I can learn about you and your history. Important aspects of your health that I consider include your family history, personal health history, your current diet and lifestyle. Any medications or other treatments you have, or recently had, are very important to note, so that my recommendations do not interfere with other care you are receiving. I use functional and nutrigenetic testing where appropriate, to guide nutritional care.
I will then create a bespoke food plan for you, taking into account your lifestyle and preferences. I work on the principle of Food First, which means that nutritional supplements are only recommended as a support, not instead of the right diet.
