Hello, my name is Helen Auburn and I trained at the prestigious Institute for Optimum Nutrition [ION] in London. I am a CNHC Registered Functional Medicine Nutritional Therapist. I am partnered with Whatley Manor Aquarius Spa. For Spa members only contact 01666822888.
Based in Swindon and with more than 20 years of experience treating people with a range of health issues, I see clients at a private premise in the centre of Swindon, easily accessible from surrounding areas, including Newbury, Cirencester, Chippenham, Marlborough, Gloucester and Oxford.
I am also part of a small group of professional practitioners, which includes a GP at New Hope Association for Therapy & Healing.
I love what I do! I work with men & women who have debilitating symptoms who want to improve their health, boost their energy and learn to love their bodies again. I use nutrition and health coaching to help YOU become the healthiest and fittest you can be!
Making sure we eat the right foods for us, in the right way, is the basis of good health: being aware of our diet and tailoring it to our bodies’ needs is one of the most powerful tools available for the prevention and treatment of illness, supporting the natural healing process.
Consulting with an holistic, functional medicine-trained Nutritional Therapist can be the first step towards investing in your long-term health and vitality, helping to create a new, healthier YOU!
The Benefits of Nutritional Therapy
Our bodies run on the food we eat: it’s our fuel. Making sure our food is right for us, of the best quality and prepared in the right way can have a big effect on how we function in our daily lives, at work, or emotionally in family or personal situations. Nutritional Therapy can help find the right balance in the way we approach our lives, ensuring we work to our optimum potential throughout the day.
Nutritional therapy advice, helps you to understand and make changes to the kinds of foods you eat and can help with many conditions that have been medically diagnosed.

What should I expect from our sessions?
First consultation - We complete the ION Nutritional Therapy Questionnaire together. We will then discuss your health concerns, focusing on the underlying causes.
Second consultation - After discussing the best course of action, I will create for you a specific and individual food plan, food supplemental additions and lifestyle protocol, including general fitness advice and relaxation techniques, that will help your body to achieve balance [homeostasis] of energy output, recovery, rest and relaxation that is best suited to your individual needs. 6 weeks support commences.
Third consultation - six month review, to check that you're on track, or if you have any questions.
Children - All children 17 & under, must be accompanied by an adult. We complete the specially designed ION Nutrition Questionnaire either for Adolescents or Children together. 6 months support commences.
The care & safety of all individuals seeking my care remains paramount
We will be in regular contact, either by phone, email, text or Skype, depending on your preference, after the second consultation. We will discuss any queries you may have. I will coach you to become in control of your health. Quite often, once you are feeling better, that in itself is enough to keep you motivated.

Abby Strickland, former Whatley Manor Spa Manager
For as long as I could remember, I struggled with weight loss. I tried all sorts, but nothing stuck. Then in recent years, my energy level got so low. I was getting desperate. Helen came highly recommended, by someone I knew through work and since then, I have never looked back. Helen made me feel so comfortable during our consultations and her wealth of knowledge made me feel I could trust everything she said. I am only at the beginning stages of my program, but I am already seeing amazing results in how I feel, and how my body is changing. Helen has been a great support and been there for me when I've had questions or facing a challenge. Working with Helen was the best decision I could have made for my health and I am so thankful for her and can't wait to share with her the end results.
Stuart, Body Builder - Swindon
Poor Muscle Definition, Excess Fat, Bloating
I have lost 11 lbs to date. I think I'm definitely one of those body types, that just doesn't get on with eating starchy carbs. on a daily basis.
As a body builder I was keen to know what I could and couldn't eat and Helen has been a great help in identifying foods that have been causing bloating. Thanks Helen." Stuart,Swindon
Weight Issue, Food Cravings
"I went to see Helen to help me find a healthy way to lose weight, whilst maintaining a very active lifestyle. It is something I have struggled with for years, trying to find the right foods to keep me feeling energetic throughout the day, balanced with losing weight.
Helen not only gave me great advice, and new ideas, which has already helped me lose weight and the many cravings I used to get, but also to believe I can achieve my goals. The on going support is also useful, just knowing there is someone to contact, if I need help too, is a huge relief and helps keep me focused." Louise, Swindon
Food Allergies & Intolerances, Frequent Viral Infections, Sleep Issues, Weight Issue, Fatigue
"Decided to see Helen after many years of suffering with weight issues, fatigue, loss of motivation and a number of food intolerances/sensitivities. On top of all that, I was always ill. I'd catch every cold, every flu, every stomach bug, every viral illness, Chicken Pox, Mumps...These are all viruses I have had since a child, am now in my 30's.
I felt I was never able to eat anything apart from fruit and yoghurt every day, and somehow, I was still slightly overweight. I was eating so little that I've even been accused by my friends of having an eating disorder. No one, including myself, understood why I was never hungry, ate so little, but managed to be slightly overweight.
Within a week of seeing Helen, I was exploring different foods as she made me aware that there was so many more foods I was able to consume without feeling ill. I was also sleeping through the night, and no longer have fatigue. I am still learning new things and this is not a diet where you are starving yourself, it is a healthy, manageable diet that you can continue for a lifetime and the end result is a much better you.
I feel much more on the ball. I'm ploughing through my studies that I'd put on hold because of fatigue. I'm more awake and active and I no longer have forgetfulness. All said, I am happy I made the decision to see Helen. Things have certainly changed for me and I am heaps happier. Charlie, Swindon
Amenorrhoea, Weight, Hypoglycaemia, Lack of Energy
"It's going really well, thank you. I have lost 3.5kg and dropped 4% body fat so far, since I've sorted my eating out and been training with my personal trainer.
I would say that I'm eating clean about 95% of the time and I am really enjoying it. I feel so much better in myself and I feel like I am in a really good place in my life now.
I actually had my first proper period about a week ago so things there are all good too.
I don't generally experience cravings for sugar anymore either, and if I do ever try anything sweet, it is always a disappointment, which is obviously a good thing.
So all in all, a very happy client - thank you for getting me on the road to clean eating. I know now that I won't falter."Angela, Swindon
Joint Pain, Thrush, Circulatory Issues, Poor Memory, Lack of Energy, Rosacea
"Helen has been great! The consultation was thorough and enabled me to talk through all my symptoms in a relaxed atmosphere. The suggested food plan was easy to follow and the recipes are tasty. The food plan made such a positive difference to my health and I have even lost half a stone. I am continuing with Helen's recommendations to diet and supplements to ensure maximum health. I would recommend Helen to anyone who is having health problems." Joanne,Swindon
