Hi and thank you for browsing through my profile. I'm Carolina and a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist practicing from Solihull and Leamington Spa.
I also offer telephone consultations nationwide, as well as home visits in Solihull, Leamington Spa and surrounding areas if attending an appointment is difficult, or if you are housebound. I am available for bookings Monday to Saturday including evenings and Sundays (upon appointment).
In addition, I conduct supermarket tours if you are unsure how to shop for healthy foods.
I am a fully registered and insured practitioner with the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I regularly attend conferences, workshops and seminars, and subscribe to medical journals, to keep up-to-date with the very latest in nutritional research.
I embrace a variety of health issues, whether supporting those with gastro-intestinal complaints, hormonal issues, weight management, low energy levels and stress, to those suffering with serious chronic disease. Please see the testimonials on my website, Facebook page, and Google reviews on how I have supported these clients successfully.
Training, qualifications & experience
My passion for food and nutrition (which stems from my Spanish mother whereby good nutrition was always of central importance) led me to study with both the University of West London and the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine in London. On completing my studies after 5 years, I gained Certificates in Personal and Professional Development and a Diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition.
I am also City and Guilds Accredited in Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering, First aid trained, and hold a clear Enhanced DBS checked certificate.
I also practice as a Nutritional Therapist in Wolverhampton, Walsall, and Coventry, seeing clients on a private basis, as well as at a cancer support centre helping clients to maintain an optimal diet to help alleviate side effects from cancer or its treatment. Additionally, I host engaging presentations and cookery demonstrations regarding nutrition and healthy eating, in schools throughout the country, to children aged 3 -18 years.

* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
Prior to your initial consultation, it would assist me if you could complete a health questionnaire and 3 day food diary top give me some indication of your health and diet. I can then build a general picture of you and your dietary preferences; this will assist me in offering suitable alternatives.
The initial consultation will last approximately 1 to 1 and a half hours and having taken a full case history, we will discuss possible contributory factors and make suggestions to help alleviate symptoms and bring about an improvement in your health and well-being. A personalised diet and life-style plan will then be fully researched, formulated and emailed to you within 24-48 hours (excluding weekends and festive holidays), the plan may also suggest some recipe ideas. Diagnostic tests may also be recommended to help determine any health concerns but these are purely optional and their reason for their recommendation fully explained. Your personalised plan may also include supplement recommendations where my practitioner discount will be offered.
Initial Consultation to include a food diary review, bespoke 7 day menu-planner, letter to GP for additional testing request (if required) or analysis of blood test results (if already available):- £75.00
Follow-up consultations may be advised, to monitor progress and make further changes or recommendations, if required.
Follow-up Consultation (up to 1 hour) with food diary review and analysis of blood test results (if this has been requested):- £50.00
Initial and follow-up consultation paid upfront at first consultation with benefits as above. This service includes free email or telephone support (up to 10 minutes) once weekly in between consultations:- £120.00
Additional menu-planners (from 3 days and up to 4 weeks in length) can also be provided as an extra service.
Food diary reviews can also be offered without having to attend a consultation if you do not have chronic health concerns and would generally like to be eating more healthily. Please get in touch for further information. Very convenient if you do not have the time to commit to a full session (online service): - £60.00 with 7 day 'healthy eating' menu-planner included
I also offer personalised supermarket tours whereby I will accompany you at your supermarket when doing your grocery shopping. I will show you how you could be eating more healthily and help you to make the right healthy food choices. Advice will be given on labelling, the content of nutrients, and how you can replace your favourite foods with healthier choices.

As my mother was a nurse and grandfather a GP, I know first-hand that orthodox medicine and nutrition can complement each other beautifully. I would like to take this view one step further however.I therefore apply the principles of 'functional nutrition' whereby I will endeavour to find the root cause of your health issues, not just take a symptoms based approach. I do not take a one-size-fits-all approach as everyone leads a different lifestyle and has a different relationship with food. I will engage in an individual, dynamic relationship with you and tailor-make your wellness plan to encourage you on the right track to optimum health.
I also invite you to 'like' my Facebook page www.facebook.com/vitalianutrition for the latest health tips and recipe ideas, as well as reviews and comments.
If you would like any further information on my services or how nutritional therapy can help you, then please do not hesitate to contact me by phone where I would be very happy to discuss this further.
All the best in health,
