Hello, I'm Taru - a qualified, registered and insured nutritional therapist with clinics in Central and North London (Crouch End, Highgate) and online.
My therapeutic approach is based on the Functional Medicine framework, which takes into account our biochemical uniqueness and the holistic nature of our wellbeing. I've adopted a 'Food and Lifestyle-first' approach, and I use functional and biochemical testing to guide your management program.
To discuss your goals or to find out how I can help you reach your goals, don't hesitate to call me; I'd be happy to answer your questions!

I am truly fascinated by the interconnected relationship between our diet, lifestyle, and wellbeing. From experience, I know that good nutrition and specific simple lifestyle interventions can offer a safe, affordable and natural approach to improving resilience, mental focus and energy and sense of wellbeing.
Prior to graduating from the Westminster University's Nutritional Therapy program (BSc hons), I had a career in arts management and film. Mentally demanding and fast-paced, I developed my own coping mechanisms to deal with stress - good nutrition and healthy lifestyle changes provided consistently the best results. Finally, I decided to retrain in nutrition and make it my second career.
