About me

Laura de la Harpe is an experienced nutritional therapist whose thriving Reading-based practice, Nutritional Benefits, has been established since 2008. She enjoys an excellent reputation for success and sees clients from Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Hampshire and London.

Laura’s philosophy is based on the belief that by understanding how foods affect your energy, mood and general wellbeing, you can make changes to your health that are sustainable and achievable. Laura uses Functional Medicine principles to get to the root cause of health issues for each client, and then creates a tailored programme, teaching them how to understand food and its impact on health. She has a ‘never give up’ attitude, and will support each client to master their diet and make the right choices, so they no longer feel at the mercy of food.
