Allison Llewellyn Nutritional Therapy DipCNM, mBANT, rCNHC
If you have a health problem, would like to lose weight, or would just like to eat more nutritiously then I would love to help support you.
I am happy to work with clients of all ages, although usually with women as they start to face the trials and tribulations that can occur with ageing. As a nutritional therapist I will assess diet and lifestyle to understand where changes can be made which may be attributing to ill health. I utilise a naturopathic approach which takes into consideration the overall health, diet, well being, and environment of each person. A unique plan is created to suit each individual lifestyle which is easy to take on board to help you understand your nutritional needs and help to maintain your well being.
Whilst habits can be incredibly hard to change and many things come along and spoil our good intentions, by taking a steady approach and being prepared we can beat any obstacles before they appear. On the odd occasion they may beat us, but by understanding why, how and when they occur we can be one step ahead.
As you enjoy nutritiously rich foods, energy levels, weight management and overall health will all benefit. Age well, feel younger, enjoy vitality and restore vigour for life through a nutrient dense diet and lifestyle changes if applicable.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the College of Naturopathic Medicine for 3 years which included 200 hours of clinical study, graduating with a Diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition.
As a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council I will be required to maintain 35 hours of (CPD) continued professional development annually.
