Anna is a nutritional therapist with over 10 years of experience in the health and nutrition industry. Her special interests are in digestion, chronic inflammatory, and female fertility issues.
Unbeknownst to her, she suffered for years with digestion and chronic inflammatory conditions. Having set into remission all of her conditions, she now focuses on helping her clients achieve relief from their ailments through dietary changes, fermented foods, supplementation and life style changes. She has first hand experience of the changes that come from supporting healthy gut function on the rest of our body’s physiology — no matter the client’s goal. Anna also runs workshops on fermentation to help her clients optimise dietary recommendations related to their respective goals. Here in these workshops, she teaches how to make different types of sauerkraut, kimchi & kefirs whilst taking participants through the health benefits of these fermented foods.

Wherever you are on your fertility journey, you will benefit from a tailor made nutrition programme. Anna has had a personal history of miscarrying, unexplained fertility issue for over 10 years, an ovarian tumour, to falling pregnant spontaneously. She understands that the body has very different nutritional requirements for conception and pregnancy as compared to her clients focusing on fitness and weight management. Nutrition is the key to laying down foundations for fertility and healthy pregnancy, and can also improve success rates for both natural and assisted conception.
Anna approach combines integrative and functional medicine using functional diagnostic tests (blood, urine, stool, saliva) to assess imbalances to get to the root of health concerns. Her diagnostic methods reaffirm the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focusing on the whole person, following evidence based analysis to utilise all of her therapeutic approaches to achieve optimal health and healing.

Here is a selection of feedback comments received:
''Anna is the best consultant I have found, I did my research and asked the college of naturopathic medicine and I thank them to put Anna on the list of a few consultants they recommended.
She is competent, thorough and caring, she has not only helped me, also my mother, father and sister, there is a huge value for education and knowledge that she puts in front of the me, one example: she provides the reason why some symptoms appear and how to deal with them. I am very grateful, thank you Anna.''
Leila, Kings Langley
Anna has helped me with my health, she is passionate about what she does and that reflects on the results. She listens and adapts to your needs, she does a great amount of research to ensure you get the best recommendations for what you need. I trust her because I know she prescribes what is best for me, not what's going to give her the highest commission, she has great work ethics, well worth the money.
''I came across Anna 4months ago, as I was in search of someone who would help me in my journey to heal. I had a really positive experience in meeting Anna, as she guided me through my test results. She is very knowledgable, thorough, patient and has pin pointed focus areas that need attention, and even recommending useful tests I should complete. Although recommendations are never going to be 100% accurate first time, we are getting to granular areas of focus following close analysis of test results to begin my healing journey. This is only after 2 visits. I have noticed a big turnaround already, which has positively impacted my career as well as allowing me to feel more at ease with life generally. I like Anna's customised approach and genuine conern for the individuals wellbeing. I have seen many practioners in the past but none compare to Anna, I would highly recommend her if you want to begin the journey of healing.''
''I contacted Anna about the juice workshop that she provides through her service workshops and I got an immediate response back. She told me exactly what was going to happen that day and she answered all of my questions. She is a very good nutritional therapist as she gave me additional information which would help me after the workshop has finished. The workshop has improved my diet a lot since and given me additional knowledge. I would recommend other people searching for a nutritional therapist to contact Anna. Thank you Anna.''
"Thank you Anna for improving my health when doctors turned me away and told me to ‘just live with it’. Your knowledge and expertise are great. Without your help, I would still be suffering. Your kind, professional and level-headed approach is the perfect combination and I’m so glad I met you. I highly recommend a visit to Anna."
"I cannot thank you enough for your advice and knowledge and the difference it has made to how I and all those feel – physically & mentally who you're helping. Your true passion and steady self-improvement make you a genuine recommendation."
''Anna is a wonderful person and very competent nutritional therapist. Her huge knowledge and an open mind built my trust straight away. She helped my 11 years old son with IBD. With her advice and recommendation my son has managed to escape serious operation. He leads a normal life, he goes to school and he is an active child. She always stays in regular contact with us and she answers all the questions. Grateful Mum.''
''For a year I've been suffering from bad skin, bloated stomach, and sluggish digestion and felt tired all the time. I turned my heart to Anna who helped me with my symptoms and also made a diet plan for me with do and don't food list, supplements, I followed her diet plan for 3 months and the result was amazing. Bloating improved dramatically my energy level improved and skin looked clearer. I would definitely recommend Anna her knowledge is absolutely amazing and she's so passionate about what she does.
''I met Anna over two years ago when I had recently been diagnosed with advanced non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I felt scared and lonely. By taking the time to speak to me, she changed my life and approach to my condition. She gave me invaluable advice about the changes I should make to my diet, including juicing and sent me lots of information. She also referred me to specialized centres for advice. She is a kind, gentle person who genuinely cares about people's health and goes out of her way to help them. To me, she is an angel sent from above to help me when I was at my lowest point. I really don't know where I would be now if it wasn't for Anna's guidance. Thank you Anna, for everything.''
