I am Natasha, owner and nutritional therapist at Arcobaleno.
Nutritional therapy is a talking therapy and it is important to listen to clients. This is a skill I am naturally good at. I give clients time to tell their story as well as give them professional nutritional advice. I am also caring and relate easily to others.
As a mum of two teenagers I have over the years developed a hobby for cooking from scratch. When I started studying nutrition my cooking and eating habits changed and this enhanced my passion for food and cooking. I am always experimenting with food however still have firm family favourite recipes that are not only nutritious they taste good as well. I am currently working on fermenting foods, with some success and a little failure and similarly trying out dehydration of foods. These techniques are a new extension to my knowledge and skills.
Like many other nutritional therapists I came to nutritional therapy through concerns about my own health. I also wanted to start a new career, previously worked in financial services and then a full time mum, going back to work I wanted to try a different career. Through studying and embracing nutritional therapy my health improved, so did my family's and even the dog! Through a combination of my skills, life experience, knowledge of nutrition and interest in food, I believe I offer a unique and personalised service.
I have to continually expand my knowledge in nutrition as a requirement but I also love learning new topics and expanding my current knowledge.
I chose Arcobaleno as my business name as it means rainbow in Italian, I am married to an Italian and love the country, food and language. Eating lots of colourful vegetables and fruit can be a very good start to gaining optimal health!
Please join me on this exciting journey of colour, food, health and well being.

Vita Bella Package
This is designed to help you get the most out of nutritional therapy. Many people think one session is enough and usually it is not. There is quite often many changes to be made and to do them all at once is hard. Attending a few sessions in a short period of time will give you the most benefit. This approach means different body systems can be tackled and recommendations can be adjusted according to how you progress. After the Vita Bella packages you will have enough tools to be able to apply good nutrition throughout life, even when it becomes challenging. You can even opt for some shopping trips with myself or some cooking training depending on the package you choose.
