Heather Lickley mBANT CNHC
I trained as a Nutritional Therapist after recovering from surgery and also looking after family members who were suffering with food intolerances. I believe that many people are treated by the NHS and are supposedly better but still do not feel "well". Eating good food can have a huge impact on how you feel physically and mentally. I can support you to make sustainable food and lifestyle changes. As a mother of teenagers, I understand the pressures of family life that can impact on good nutrition.
Everyone is different and all I love cooking and showing people how nutritious food can taste very good and is not difficult to prepare. I do talks for business and groups and always have samples for them and for clients to try. I like to support clients on an ongoing basis as your personal health improvement is my aim.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained for three years with the College of Naturopathic Medicine, one of the UK's largest, most highly-respected and well-known natural medicine training providers. Practice is evidence based from scientific research.
I am a member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), the professional body for Registered Nutritional Therapists, which assists its members in attaining the highest standards of integrity, knowledge, competence and professional practice.
I am also a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CHNC), whose function is to enhance public protection by setting standards for registration.

I can also come with you on a shopping trip or support you learning to cook. Maybe you have a young family and little time to think about changing habits, or maybe you have relied in the past on someone else preparing your meals and are struggling to know how to cook and eat healthily for yourself.
Healthy eating is not difficult once you know what to buy and how to prepare it. Keeping within your own food budget is important. Often some small changes can make all the difference. This can be done alongside nutritional therapy or as a separate service - please ask - costs will depend on what you require.
