Severine Menem Nutrition
14 Gray's Inn Road
I am a registered Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach with a passion to educate, empower and support individuals who desire to live life to their full health and energy potential.
I have a functional medicine approach. I believe ill health is the result of imbalances: your body has either too much or too little of something. My goal is to find out the root cause of this disruption so that we can work on it and get you back on track. I have many tools to help me figure that out: we start the first session discussing your symptoms and medical history, I look for signs on your skin, face, hair, nails, tongue and finally we can run tests through the NHS or privately.
Nutrition changed my life when I realised that making just a few dietary habits helped me overcome health conditions that traditional medicine had failed to solve.
I am on a mission to help people not to miss out on life. I know what it is to have low energy, be overweight & have symptoms that doctors cannot seem to help. I have been there. With nutrition we can make a substantial difference in your life, especially in chronic conditions.
I have experience seeing clients with a wide range of health conditions and goals, and tend to specialise in the following areas:
- Energy - restore and improve your energy levels
- Gastrointestinal Health - restore and improve your digestion
- Weight Loss - revamp your body and your life with healthier diet and lifestyle habits
What to expect during a consultation
- During the first session (1-2 hours) we will review your previous medical history, have an in-depth conversation about current health, diet and lifestyle, and discuss your health goals as well as the potential need for tests (whether NHS or private tests) and/or use of nutritional supplements to achieve quicker results. At the end of the session, I will agree on three steps to follow until our next session, and within 24 hours you will receive your detailed nutrition and lifestyle plan, which may include recipes.
- During the follow-up (1 hour) we will review your progress, the successes and challenges you encountered, and how I can best help you at this point. We will then split the session between learn about the nutrition and health coaching tools to help change your food-related thinking and habits. Similarly to the first consultation, you will receive the updated nutrition and lifestyle plan within 24 hours of the session.

"I struggled with my weight for years, and had gone through a miscarriage earlier in the year. I was also starting to have gastrointestinal issues and could just not seem to correct it. I felt quite hopeless with the prospect of getting healthy and back into shape before trying for another baby, and did not want to use any of the conventional recommendations suggested by my doctor, so I decided to meet Severine and opt for a more natural approach.
Meeting Severine was amazing and she was able to clearly direct me in the simple changes I needed to make to my diet and lifestyle. She was very understanding and motivating, and the consultation was exactly what I had hoped it would be. I was very surprised at how quickly the weight started to drop off and my digestion improved. At my 6 week follow up I already felt like a different person and in such a better place. Severine was able to revise my plan further and things are still going strong and improving each day. I'm now looking forward to trying for another baby and am hopeful we'll be successful his time around! Thank you Severine!" Philippa A.
"Severine is a very open and honest person who listens to your story and what it is you are looking for. She was able to perfectly analyse what exactly I could benefit from keeping my personal goals in mind. I feel like this experience was more than just advice on what to eat but also opened up a new 'world' of food to me. I absolutely loved the experienced and would recommend her to anyone." Susanne K.
"Severine is a competent nutritionist, who gave me a lot of great advice for loosing the last pounds of baby weight after having my little son. She provided me with a lot of interesting information about nutrition and checked very thoroughly my health history before starting the programme. She also provided me with tasty recipes that are easy to prepare. I started by making small changes to my diet step by step following Severine's advice and feel much better and more energised. A huge thank you to Severine - highly recommendable!" Annika C.
"I ask Severine for help because I wanted to lose 10 kg, and despite going to the gym 5 times a week for 3 months, I still hadn’t lost any weight. She nicely explained to me that weight loss is 80% what you eat and 20% exercise, so even if I was doing everything right at the gym, if my food diary didn’t improve I would still be at the same point in a year’s time.
So I started making simple changes, and the weight started to come off. After a while I started going to the gym only 3 times a week, and the weight was still coming off as long as I sticked to a few simple rules. I really enjoyed her programme because I was able to eat tasty food and have the occasional night out. She totally understood me and got me where I wanted. Totally recommend her!" Marc M.
"I followed a 4-weeks programme with Severine. My goals were to avoid food cravings, lose some weight and also improve my overall mood. Severine made it clear that these 3 goals were all linked together. She explained the cause of my failure to reach these goals and what I could do to reach by improving a few things in my diet and lifestyle. After the 1st week, I was already starting to see some improvements in my body. My cravings were gone and I didn't find it too difficult to give up some of my favorite guilty snacks. Severine was very motivating and enthusiastic throughout the programme. She also provided some ideas and recipes that helped me eating a wider range of foods. She also provided good explanations on body functioning and why the programme is effective. I would definitely recommend Severine to anyone who wants to improve their lifestyle, no matter how big or difficult the challenge seems." Esther B.
"Severine is a highly professional nutritionist with extensive and up-to-date knowledge. She is highly personable and makes sessions not only interesting and relevant, but also fun and energising. I highly recommend her services to people who want to get serious with their health and nutrition." David V.
"My time spent with Severine was totally worthwhile - I wish I had done it sooner. She took the time to understand my situation and motivations and was given easy work arounds that left me feeling great. And then just as bad habits crept back in a coaching call with Severine would put me right back on track. We all sort of know what to do but working with Severine made this fit into my busy work life and kept me motivated week on week." Annemieke van der V.
