About me

A journey back to health.

Do you live your daily life feeling "out of sorts" with a condition that is impacting your well-being and stopping you to live life to the full? Have you spent many hours seeking medical advice or perhaps doing your own research on how to feel better and more energised? Do you feel daunted by all the solutions generously laid onto the internet by so-called experts, with sometimes no scientific or proven value?

I can help you regain your health back with my nutritional experience, providing achievable, science-based, tailored nutritional programmes. I am a fully qualified Registered Nutritional Therapist and I offer one-to-one consultations at my home in W14, in a confidential, calm and comfortable environment. 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 experienced in the areas of gastro-intestinal health, weight loss, fatigue and lack of vitality,  healthy ageing and hormonal imbalance.

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.

My programme typically is a series of 3 or 4 one-to-one-sessions, lasting 60 or 90 minutes.

I will dedicate my time explaining how your diet and lifestyle are impacting your health and will explain the science behind my recommendations. I will provide you with various tools (e.g. handouts, meal plans, shopping lists, personalised action plans) to empower you to make the right food choices and improve your health. Many of my clients comment on how they now understand their conditions and the contributing factors and how they feel much more in control of their choices.

I may recommend additional tests to allow us to get a better picture of what is driving your condition. These tests may be performed at the GP practice, or using trustful functional laboratories. I may also recommend a course of supplements to support your journey back to health.

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

I should also add that I am a French national and I can consult in the French langage.

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.'
