Children & Teens
I work with toddlers, children and teenagers on all aspects of food and eating plans.
Behaviour concerns are increasingly identified as issues for children and young people today. Breakfasts high in sugar, and diets low in Omega 3 fats are just two of the many ways nutrition can impact symptoms. I can help you make changes to your child's food intake that can make a big difference to behaviour both in school and at home.
Food intolerances have become a huge issue and concern for parents. Whether you know or just suspect your child has an intolerance to certain food types, I can help you to assess this and make concrete plans that will ensure your child is getting all the right nutrients while managing the situation in a considered way.
With weight concerns I have a gentle approach that allows the child to feel listened to and understood. Being a teenager is an incredibly sensitive time and food can become a complicated expression of a child's inner world. It is not always easy for the parents to handle the situation as effectively as they would like.
Skin conditions can be extremely disconcerting for a child or teenager. Foods can be nourishing and healing. I will help incorporate these into your weekly food intake, while avoiding those foods other more detrimental foods.
Fussy eating in toddlers can be extremely frustrating and some simple tools can really empower parents to manage the daily battle.
The intial consultation allows me to create a detailed map of your current health, lifestyle and food intake, whilst also looking at medical history and family connections.
The process of Nutrition For Health is a journey and not a "one plan fits all". Therefore a personalised nutrition plan is built, specifying nutritional and lifestyle changes. I include ideas for each meal and simple recipes, working within any budget and time constraints you may have.
Training, qualifications & experience
Amber Silverman, Dip CNM, Bsc Psych, mBANT
I'm an experienced Nutritional Therapist, having studied for three years at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, which I graduated from in 2011.
I do regular professional development training and am a member of The Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.
My BSc in Psychology supports the therapeutic side of the work I do in my clinic.
I worked as a consultant for several years, including in the food industry, which gave me an interesting insight into food processing. Spurred on to explore the link between health and food, I retrained as a Nutritional Therapist.
I now run a clinic in Tufnell Park seeing people individually, helping them to make sustainable changes to their diet that result in notable health improvements. I have developed a specialism in working with children and young adults, an extremely rewarding part of my work. As a mother of two teenagers, I am very aware of some of the issues around eating that can arise.
I have recently completed a course at The Tavistock, "An Introduction to Working With People with Eating Disorders," which has given me a greater insight into the complexities faced
by some young people and adults.
I run workshops that relate to specific health concerns such as The Menopause and Type 2 Diabetes. My Nutrition Reboot Classes are particularly popular with people who want to eat more healthily and/or lose weight who are looking for input or guidance, recipe ideas and advice.
Above all, I get great satisfaction from helping individuals and seeing how quickly and sometimes dramatically, they can improve their health, even by making minor changes.
I'm passionate about what I do and I invite you to contact me to find out more.
