About me

Listening to your body and honouring its signals is one of the true forms of self-love!

I am a fully qualified Registered Nutritionist with a Master's in Nutrition and a fully Certified Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner. I have a wealth of experience helping people become healthy, energised and fit, equipping them with knowledge and techniques to improve their lifestyle. As a certified Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner, I aim at "treating the cause" of most modern diseases, not focusing only on the symptoms. My consultations are always reasonable and easy to understand, and I keep up to date with the latest scientific sources and strongest evidence-based modalities available.

Consultations can be arranged:

  • face to face, I am happy to visit you at home or wherever suits you best
  • online, via Zoom, What'sApp, etc
  • phone

Your first session will look at important aspects of your previous and current diet and lifestyle, your personal health history, medications, treatments or food issues so that my recommendations do not interfere with other care you receive.

Then I will create an action plan according your needs, and we will set realistic, timely and attainable goals. Moreover, I will develop a personalised Nutrition Program with a detailed diet plan and suggested recipes tailored especially to you. 

You will also get a prescription for lifestyle changes, which covers physical activity, stress management, emotional wellness, sleep, and positive psychology.

Some of my key areas of expertise include weight management, gastrointestinal diseases (Crohn's, Irrit. bowel syndrome, celiac, ulcerative colitis, etc), any eating disorder, food intolerance, thyroid problems, pregnancy and preconception, fatigue, skin health, hormonal imbalances, auto-immune disease (including Hashimoto's Disease), etc.

I enjoy providing women's nutrition and healthy eating guidelines, focusing on pregnant women and new mums. I help them recover and get in shape after all the changes in their bodies, and I deliver workshops on weaning and childhood nutrition, including for fussy eaters.

Additionally, I work with clients looking for sports nutrition strategies to improve their athletic performance or to manage their medical conditions with a balanced diet.

If you have chosen to become Vegetarian, Vegan, or follow a Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet or remove dairy and wheat from your diet, I can guide you to make sure you are not omitting nutrients and help you create a delicious menu of options so you do not miss out on the enjoyment of food.

I usually provide one-to-one advice for individuals, deliver services to non-profit organisations, run nutrition training courses, consult with schools, etc. I offer my services to any business or brand that requires nutritional expertise.
