About me

As a Registered Nutritional Therapist (rNT) I practice within the personalised nutrition framework and I fundamentally believe that food is the most effective medicine. Traditional healthcare practitioners whose nutritional guidance is based on the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) guidelines - a Government funded organisation responsible for public health nutrition - provide advice based on whole population needs. In contrast, personalised nutrition (PN) practitioners believe in a whole-person approach, everyone is unique and we can have different physiological responses to identical foods. PN does not rely on guidelines or standard protocols, instead we take into account our client’s personal objectives, their food preferences, genetic predisposition, lifestyle, cultural and financial constraints. I view it as a partnership between client and practitioner.

With PN, symptoms are seen as clues for explaining health imbalances, it follows a systems approach taking into consideration interrelationship between the mind and body. This strategy seeks to look at the big picture of health by restoring physiological functioning, always aiming to address the triggers and mediators of disease, as opposed to just moderating the signs and symptoms or “treating” a diagnosis

My key areas of knowledge and interest:

1) Gut and immunity. As with all registered nutritional therapists I understand the importance of gut health, an imbalance in the gut is so often a root cause of disease, which can lead to nutrient deficiencies, food intolerances, allergies and when left unchecked, inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.

2) Through my personal interest in psych-neuro-immunology (PNI), I study the consequence of the mind-body imbalance. Nutritional immunology recognises that the immune system can affect behaviour and research into PNI has uncovered that mental diseases are rooted in an inflamed brain.

As a rNT I work within my scope of practice, that scope is not to diagnose, prescribe or treat. I am a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), and the Complementary and Natural Health Care Council (CNHC), which protects the public with a code of conduct, ethics and performance for registered natural healthcare practitioners and with full professional liability insurance. I am also a member of the Royal Society of Medicine and the British Society for Integrative Oncology.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

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.
