Joanne Hart BSc (Hons), mBANT, CNHC. health & hart. Health and Sport
Welcome to Health & Hart!
Nutrition & Resilience Programmes for Professionals & Athletes.
Releasing your inner potential...
Joanne Hart is a Registered Nutritional Therapist, Yoga Teacher and Map My Gut Practitioner who operates in Berkshire (e.g. Wokingham, Reading, Ascot, Windsor, Finchampstead, Woodley), and London. She has a First Class BSc (Hons) Nutritional Therapy degree from the University of Middlesex, (and an earlier degree in Chemical Engineering).
Joanne's training involved extensive clinical practice, additional optional sports nutrition modules, scientific laboratory testing and physiology modules. Alongside her clinic and corporate work, Joanne is now a clinical supervisor of students' clinical practice for their degree, which helps to keep her abreast of changes in nutrition science.
Prior to her Nutritional Therapy career Joanne trained in Neuro Linguistic programming (NLP), coached and mentored colleagues in the corporate world, then coached voluntarily for 2 years in America and is therefore registered as a Member of the Association for Coaching. These coaching skills alongside nutritional therapy help her clients make a change rather than just being told what to do.
Joanne previously worked in IT (Mars), manufacturing (Dunlop) and engineering (BMW/Land Rover) fields for over 10 years. Alongside her one to one consultations she now delivers corporate performance training in London and Berkshire. She works for herself and with a team of medical doctors. She has recently delivered employee wellbeing at companies such as BMW, Microsoft and Bracknell and Wokingham college.
How Will Nutritional Therapy Help Me?
Nutritional Therapy helps clients to reach their maximum health potential by applying nutrition science, this can involve foods, lifestyle suggestions, scientific testing and professional supplements. Digestion, problems, sleep, mood, energy, hormones, weight management and sports needs are a few of the areas addressed through nutritional therapy.
Am I An Ideal Client?
You are an ideal client to work with Joanne if you fit into one or more of these categories:
(i) Have heath issues and medication, seeking nutrition advice alongside.
(ii) Have health issues that are self managed or need self managing.
(iii) You regard yourself as healthy but want more nutrition knowledge to improve performance at work or in sport.
(iv) You want some reassurance, advice, ideas or motivation, and expert advice.
(v) You're looking for a programme of nutrition, yoga and/or coaching rather than one fast fix session.

''Joanne has worked with a number of clients for me, I’ve found her to be very professional and able to offer expertise as well as practical ideas. I am happy to recommend her and continue working with her". James Haskell (Rugby Player, England & Wasps)
"Joanne shows dedication towards enhancing the nutrition and well-being of others. Through the recommendations she makes with regard to sports nutrition this becomes a reality. Alongside her considerable scientific knowledge is her genuine desire to understand the needs of the individual. Her consultations provide food for thought and instils a desire to make positive changes. I thoroughly recommend her". Bev Callender, Olympic Athlete, Teacher & UK Athletics Coach
''I saw Joanne earlier this year for some nutritional advice. She was very thorough & took the time to understand my requirements. She offered lots of sound advice & useful hints & tips as to how to make sustainable & manageable changes. I have definitely seen & experienced the benefits of her wisdom! Thank you Joanne". Sarah Leach, Owner & Coach at STRIDE Coaching & Consulting
"I found maintaining a three day food diary a real eye opener - it really made me think about what I eat. The follow up and analysis session was great and gave me lots of simple ideas for improving my diet. Since then I have stuck to the changes and definitely feel better for it. Thank you for all your help and advice! I recently got a PB at Reading with a combination of new training, core work and the focus on my diet!" Dave Perret, Training for London marathon.
