Hi, my name is Ann-Marie, and I’ve been working within the nutrition field for over 15 years.
It's important to me to make people feel good about themselves. I like to think that when people come to see me, they feel comfortable and at ease and know that they are in non-judgmental environment. Most of the time, people don’t want to hear about complex nutrition science, they want to know how they can reach their goals and how they can feel confident within themselves. I've worked with people from all walks of life and along with my own personal life journey, it’s allowed me to be empathetic and highly skilled at helping people to recognise their self-defeating behaviours and to help change their mindset around nutrition. Ultimately this improves health, performance, and self-esteem. I can help people in several ways. I work with clients in a 'whole-health' way, using my nutrition knowledge along with mindset work. It might be that you want to lose weight or you just want to understand how to eat to support your activities, or you want to have a healthier relationship with food. It might be that you just want to feel a little healthier and more energised. Whatever your goal might be, I will help you to get there.
Get started today...
Call me or email me to set up a FREE discovery call. After that, if you decide we are a good fit, the initial consultation will last 60 minutes. From that we can develop a plan of action going forward. I provide ongoing support, accountability and education with follow ups.
One to One Nutrition Consultations
This is for those who want to look at a particular topic or area of nutrition during a one-hour session. During the session we will look at the nutritional areas that will have the most benefit for you right now. You will complete a comprehensive questionnaire relating to your eating habits and goals prior to the session so that we can make the most of our time when we meet. During the session we will create some clear action steps that you can implement straight away to start working towards your goals. I will follow up with a summary PDF to remind you of what we spoke about, actions to take, and relevant links to useful resources. Follow up review sessions are also available to review progress, troubleshoot and help to keep you motivated.
Nutrition Coaching Programme
This programme is designed to help you to make lasting changes. It will help you to improve your wellbeing, health, performance and mindset. Throughout the two-three months, we work on areas that will have the most benefit to you right now. It might be that you want to lose body fat, or have more energy, or have a better relationship with food and feel better about yourself, or all of the above! This programme includes monthly one-hour consultations during which we create action steps, and weekly 30-minute phone calls to check in, build on knowledge and troubleshoot. The calls also help to keep you motivated and accountable. For a full breakdown of what this programme includes please get in touch. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
Total wellness is a one-to-one programme across 2 to 3 months. Through nutrition support, mindset work and meditation coaching you receive a ‘whole’ approach to your wellbeing goals. What does this mean? This means you get to feel good from the inside out! Tackling your nutrition is great, but looking at your mental wellbeing and mindset at the same time is even better, especially if something is holding you back from moving forward with your goals. Meditation coaching can help to increase optimism, improve resilience, increase focus, and help you to gain insight about yourself and clarity with your goals. Meditation coaching teaches you how to implement meditation practically into your daily life, but can also help you to work through any challenges that you may be facing preventing you from moving forward. This programme includes:
- Nutrition consultations (fortnightly)
- Meditation coaching and mindset (30 minutes weekly)
- Weekly journaling prompts for reflection

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
When I work

When training for a 6-day endurance cycling event, I decided to seek nutritional advice from Ann-Marie. She helped me create simple strategies to make sure I was fuelling sufficiently and effectively before, after and during training. Her advice was definitely the most valuable part of the build up towards the event! It’s safe to say that I wouldn’t have been able to complete even some of the long training rides, let alone the final event without her help and advice. Even if you think you are already very knowledgeable about nutrition, it’s amazing what you can learn, implement and maintain with the support of a professional in sports nutrition.
I felt instantly at ease. It was clear from the beginning that she was only there to help and not judge. After taking a food diary, Ann-Marie put together a bespoke plan to ensure I was in prime condition to match my energy requirements throughout the week, from what to eat the day before match day, what to eat and drink on match day as well as recovery plans. I have seen huge benefits. An increase in energy as well as mood have been clear. The plans are very simple to follow and she has a great way of explaining complex scientific information into lay terms. I 100% recommend anyone who needs help in any way to contact Ann-Marie. Whether that be a drastic lifestyle change to tweaking current habits to create an extra 1% improvement.
Andy Madley, FIFA and Select Group 1 referee
I'm a runner and have been running for many years from 5km runs to marathons. I had got to a point in my training where I felt like I had plateaued and even regressed. I would head out on a run and instantly feel fatigued. I love running, but it felt like I wasn’t enjoying it anymore and that something needed to change.
I had eight sessions with Ann-Marie, where we talked about my training and what I was trying to achieve, the amount I should be eating and the types of food I should be eating. I wasn’t eating anywhere near enough to fuel my body to level of my training. Ann-Marie gave me great nutrition advice, eating plans and target calories for my training and non-training days.
Since my sessions with Ann-Marie, I have adjusted my diet based on her guidance and advice and I now feel so much better. My muscles feel stronger and I don’t feel the fatigue I was feeling before. The information that Ann-Marie gave was perfect for following and easy to adapt into my daily routine, I now feel that I have the knowledge to eat to fuel my training without having to think too much, it’s now intuitive.
We commissioned Ann-Marie to do a programme of 6 classes on nutrition to our online cafes. They went down a storm; people finding out loads of information on nutrition and having fun swapping recipes. She made them fun and informative and we had great feedback. She was also a guest on our podcast telling is about how our nutritional needs, and the way we experience food changes as we age. We will definitely be using her again!
