About us

The nutritional therapy clinic at The Institute for Optimum Nutrition.

Our aim is to bring optimum nutrition to life by making it personal to you.  You are unique and the way your body works is individual to you. We understand the challenges faced in day-to-day life, and it is our understanding of this that helps us put together a nutrition programme designed just for you. The process starts with a one-hour appointment when we listen to your story and establish your goals. Together, we look at what the best approach is for you, or what underlying issues might be impacting your health.  We may recommend tests to help us dig deeper.

We regularly work with clients who require nutrition support to address digestion issues, food sensitivities, low energy, high stress and worry, female health conditions, thyroid problems, immunity issues, skin conditions and preventative health

Recommendations are based on our understanding of you and your case. Usually this focuses on the right foods to eat, and we may also recommend supplements. We strive to make things achievable; we are good at problem solving! Rome wasn’t built in a day, and the same applies to supporting you towards optimal health. We consider it a privilege to work with you over a period of time should this be required.

Our clinic wants to help as many people as possible, and as such we offer a range of appointment types. From supervised, final year students on our DipION programme through to experienced, qualified nutritional therapists, we are able to cover a range of services and budgets.

Finding the right service for you

Student Practitioners
When our students reach their final year of study they become part of the clinical team at the Optimum Nutrition Clinic. This opportunity allows them to gain important hours of clinical practice and case observation that is crucial to their training. They come into our clinic having completed modules in clinical analysis and first stage clinical practice, not to mention principles of nutrition, nutritional biochemistry, physiology, functional and biochemical imbalances, drug nutrient interactions/pharmacology/supplements, phytotherapy, disordered physiology and functional and diagnostic testing. Your appointment with a supervised final year student gives you the opportunity to have a low-cost appointment with a therapist who is fully immersed in the latest approaches to nutritional therapy. You can rest assured that the consultation is fully supervised by an experienced nutritional therapist who is present throughout your appointment.  Supervision also extends to case discussion and post-consultation analysis.

Appointments with our students come as packages, as it is important that your goals are covered and students gain experience in monitoring progress with their clients.
