About me

Qualified Nutritionist, BSc (Hons) in Nutrition and Health. I'm based in Brighton and Hove but will travel to London for consultations. I can advise on all areas of nutrition but specialise in pre-pregnancy/pregnancy/postpartum nutrition - weaning and young child nutrition - adult/child vegetarian and vegan nutrition.

As a member of the Association for Nutrition, I work within the current scientific consensus underpinning evidence-based nutrition. I ensure my ongoing professional development by attending seminars, lectures and reading science papers. This ensures that I will always be able to provide you with up-to-date nutrition advice that is based in fact, avoiding the pitfalls of fad diets and bad celebrity advice etc.

I can work with you on a one-to-one basis either in person or via phone (or Skype). I'm also happy to arrange consultations with you as part of a small group (up to 4 people), this is ideal if you are a parent and would like to bring your children along and it will allow for you to hear a variety of questions discussed.

I whole heartedly believe that the best diets will contain whole foods (pulses, fruit and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds). The Mediterranean diet has been shown to be one of the healthiest and this diet consists of whole foods, oils and fish which provide all the essential nutrients our bodies need. My approach is to incorporate up-to-date research with each clients individual aims and goals to tailor a diet plan they feel confident with.

A little about me, prior to moving into nutrition I worked as a qualified nanny and nursery nurse for many years and bring a wealth of expertise from those experiences. I've recently given birth myself so can assure that I'm up-to-date with all nutrition to do with pregnancy. I'm a vegetarian but also provide nutrition for my meat eating partner and we're raising our daughter as a pescetarian.
