About me

I am a fully qualified Registered Nutritional Therapist based in West Kensington in London, conveniently located for Hammersmith, Chiswick, Shepherd's Bush, Fulham, Notting Hill and Kensington. I offer one-to-one consultations at my home in W14. Depending on your personal circumstances and your location, I am prepared to see you at your work place or home (within reasonable distance). For those clients living further afar or unable to travel, I can offer one-to-one Skype consultations.

I am a French national having lived in the UK for more than 25 years! I can conduct consultations in both English and French.

I strongly feel that food choices may impact strongly on health and ill-health and I am dedicated to providing achievable, science-based, tailored nutritional programmes to those individuals interested in improving or maintaining their health through adequate food and lifestyle choices.

I am especially interested in the areas of gastro-intestinal health, fatigue and lack of vitality,  healthy ageing.

Being the mother of two teenage children, I am also keen to work with teenagers and young adults who would be interested in optimizing their diets to help support their minds and bodies in times of challenges brought on by examinations and transfer to university.

If you are interested in working with me, please email me and I will be delighted to answer your queries. Should you decide to proceed with me, I will send you a comprehensive health and lifestyle questionnaire to give me a picture of your health history, as well as a 5 days food diary for you to complete. During our first consultation, I will take an in-depth look at your health concerns and explore your health history in order to evaluate your individual nutritional needs. We will then agree on a number of dietary and lifestyle choices for you to incorporate into your daily life in order to address these concerns. We will discuss menu plans and supplements. I may advise on tests for us to get a clear picture on contributing factors that may perpetuate your condition.

Follow-up consultations usually follow at a month interval in order to monitor progress, answer any queries and make any necessary changes.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist based in London. I have gained my qualification with merit from the UK College of Nutrition and Health (BCNH), after a 4 years course that included one year’s supervised clinical practice.

I am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), the professional association for nutritional therapists, and I am bound by BANT’s Code of Professional Practice which lays down the standards of conduct, client care and professional practice.

I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), which is supported by the Department of Health.

Here is an example of what one of my past clients said about me -

'Agnes, I just want to say thank you and that it was a great pleasure to work with you. Since I have seen you, I'm still improving. Keeping up with your recommendations, I'm finally feeling much better, have more energy and more importantly, I'm sleeping much better compared to when I first saw you! Thank you again for all your help.'
