I love my job and get tremendous satisfaction from helping people achieve their health and wellness goals, be those weight management, digestion issues or hormonal symptoms. My main area of interest is women's health.
I firmly believe that every woman has the right to enjoy her thirties and forties feeling fabulous and on top of her game. Hormonal symptoms should not plague her every waking moment. Having suffered from terrible hormonal symptoms for many years I know only too well how debilitating and frustrating this can be. My aim is to use my experience and knowledge to help others feel fantastic again.
I offer 3 month programmes, this is because experience has shown me that three months is the minimum amount of time needed for clients to experience positive changes. The programmes vary in their level of support, however they all include an initial consultation followed by a number of follow up consultations and email support.
I take great care to learn as much as I can about my clients so that I can put together personalised programmes that suit their needs and really generate results.
I am also a keen cook and love experimenting in the kitchen, as such I have a vast resource of recipes and meal plans to offer my patients. Even if you don't like to cook I have many tips on how to improve the quality of your food and how you can still eat fresh unprocessed products without lifting a finger in the kitchen!
Here are some lovely things my clients have said about working with me:
"I'm really grateful for the help Giulietta has been providing on my weight loss journey. She understands everyone is different and has different issues and constraints to deal with, and uses a holistic, tailored approach to suit the needs of her individual clients. She will offer care and support, and will go the extra mile for you.”
"After trying to lose weight with different methods I decided to find a nutritionist to help me. I didn’t expect too much of it after being unsuccessful with so many diets, but it worked!
Working with Giulietta is very easy and she guided me when I needed her the most. She answered to all my questions and my worries.
Everybody has started to notice that I’ve lost weight and I’ve started to feel good about myself and am also wearing different clothes. Losing 10 kg(1s 8lb) has motivated me to continue my journey with her until I achieve my ideal weight."
Adriana, West Drayton
"The reason I decided to see Guilietta was that as I was now in my 40's and for the first time in my life I didn't feel I had control over my weight (which had been steady until then), I was tired and struggling to find enthusiasm to attend my usual gym classes. Despite trying various different diets over the last couple of years nothing seemed to shift the extra bit of weight I had put on and also the exhaustion I was feeling. I was totally confused as to what I should or should not be eating.
Giulietta and I met and went through my full medical history and from this she put together a food plan that would work for me. She advised the changes to my diet should take place in stages and she did not expect all the changes to happen overnight, and this is something we worked on together for the next 3 months.
I now have a food plan that works for me, I am less tired, understand what foods work and do not work for me. I also have a much more varied and interesting daily diet where Guilietta has encouraged me to introduce a variety of foods that I previously would not have considered.
As a result I now eat a healthier, more varied and balanced diet which has lead to increased energy levels and a far greater sense of well being".

Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a First Class Honours degree in Nutritional Therapy (BSc) from the University of Westminster. During my four years of study I also received a number of awards in recognition of my outstanding academic achievement. I place great value on making evidence-based recommendations and my keen interest in research is testament to this.
I also have extensive experience of the health and wellness sector and have worked in this field for over ten years; Additionally, my three-year clinical training at the University of Westminster means I am very skilled in listening to patients and helping them identify and achieve their health goals.
I am also trained under the Functional Medicine model – a pioneering approach to health which focuses on the underlying causes of disease rather than looking at symptoms in isolation (after all, what is a symptom other than the body’s way of trying to alert us that something isn’t right?). Functional Medicine has been making waves in the healthcare world in the United States for many years and it is both exciting and a privilege to be part of the growing number of practitioners who are practising this enlightened approach to healthcare in the UK.
In the past I have worked extensively in schools to educate children on how to make informed choices when it comes to their food. I have also run numerous cooking classes in a wide variety of settings throughout London. I firmly believe that cooking skills are vital for our long term health and that it is imperative that we pass these skills onto younger generationss.
I have been running a number of hormone balancing clinic for the past two years. I place great value on continuous professional development and regularly attend training courses and seminars to keep my knowledge up to date.
I am also a full member of BANT (British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy), the professional body for registered Nutritional Therapists in the UK and am also registered with the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) which is the national voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners.
