About me

Hi my name is Anita, and I am a qualified Nutritional Therapist.

My mission is to inspire, motivate and support you on your path towards optimum health and a happy, vibrant life. I currently practice out of 3 clinics - Cheltenham, Chew Valley and Bristol and enjoy working with a varied mix of people, ages and conditions.

I work with clients with a range of health issues, and I have a particular interest in children's health, female hormones and women's health, brain health and gut health. I provide personalised and evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle advice using gentle and natural interventions to nourish and support body and mind, all tailored to your unique needs.

Getting Started with Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and can help support individuals looking to enhance their wellbeing. It is not a quick fix and is not a passive process, and it involves working together and commitment. Depending on your health goal, this process of change may take a few months, and what you will gain is the tools to manage your health for the long-term.

I am trained to always ask 'why', closely examining the interplay between genes, diet and lifestyle factors to try to understand the root cause of illness and to then help the body find balance.

I can offer you a FREE 15 minute discovery call to start the ball rolling. If you would like to work with me to improve your general health or would like support with a specific health condition please do get in touch via email telephone. When you are ready to make a change, I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained and qualified with the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in Bristol. This involved 3 incredibly busy years studying anatomy, biomedicine, pathology, pharmacology, functional medicine, physiology, biochemistry, nutritional science and clinical skills. The course also included 2 years of supervised clinical practice.

My background is in environmental project management and I am a mother of two, so I fully understand the challenges of balancing a stressful work-life with a busy home and family life. I believe in eating wholesome, nourishing foods and practicing regular self-care to support good health and wellbeing.

The CNHC is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners, which was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of therapists. CNHC’s register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

Fees

Working with me is a relationship and for that reason I offer a FREE 15 minute phone call for you to ask questions and to see how Nutritional Therapy may be able to help you.

My Fees

  • Initial Consultation (90 minutes) £95
  • Follow Up (45-60 minutes) £60
    *Concessions available on request

Initial Consultation - all new clients begin with a detailed case review which includes:

  • Thorough medical and health review
  • Analysis of existing diet, medications + nutritional supplements
  • Assessment of any current + relevant blood results
  • Preliminary nutritional advice to follow based on case review
  • Identification of appropriate functional tests
  • Research & preparation of a personalised wellness plan

Following the consultation, I will reflect, research and create a personalised wellness plan designed to support you and your specific goals. This written report will detail your bespoke food plan, menu suggestions, lifestyle advice and any recommended supplements. All targeted to your individual needs and designed to give you a clearer understanding of how specific nutrients relate to you and your health.

Follow Up Consultation

After 6 weeks a follow up appointment is recommended to check progress and adapt your wellness plan where needed, these consultations typically last 45-60 mins and include:

  • Review of progress + wellness plan effectiveness
  • Explanation of any laboratory results + written report
  • Research + preparation of revised wellness plan

Further information

Nutritional Therapists have access to a broad range of laboratories and their diagnostic tests (including DNA/genetic profiling), covering the core functional systems of the body. Tests are only recommended when it is considered essential for the provision of effective and safe therapeutic interventions and always in negotiation with each client. Tests are considered on a case by case basis. I only use the most reputable laboratories with a proven track record that I trust.

Accessibility

Wheelchair-accessible premises

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
