About me

I’m Vanessa May and I can support you if you're feeling under stress, whether this manifests as fatigue, hormonal issues, anxiousness, low mood, poor self-esteem or weight gain. My aim is to help enhance your health and wellbeing. I will provide you with a healthy eating programme, tailored specifically to you, and advice on appropriate supplements and lifestyle measures. I am experienced in helping vegetarians and vegans achieve a balanced diet.

I have a degree in Nutritional Medicine and fourteen years experience as a registered Nutritional Therapist so I'm well qualified to help you address the underlying causes of a health issue and assessing how these may be contributing to your specific symptoms. 

My training as a Wellbeing Coach means I have a holistic approach and acknowledge that our emotional health can significantly impact our physical health and vice versa. I also understand the importance of keeping you and motivated, ensuring lasting results. I have supported many clients in improving confidence.

In addition, I work as a holistic grief coach, working with bereaved clients to address how grief can affect the mind, body and spirit.

Please contact me to find out how working with me could help you to move forward to better health and a greater sense of emotional wellbeing.

I first met Vanessa whilst looking for help with feeling tired all the time. I found her very approachable, understanding and sincere. I have complete faith in Vanessa and would highly recommend her to anybody who is searching for answers to their health issues.”

Information about health conditions (*)

Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.

Fees

From £65.00 to £125.00
Free initial telephone session

Additional information

I offer both packages and individual consultations. An initial hour and a half appointment is £125. This includes my time preparing your nutritional and lifestyle plan after the consultation, as well as recipes.

The follow up consultation, usually 4 weeks later, provides an important opportunity to discuss progress and decide how to build on this and is £75. If needed, further appointments after this will cost £65.
