I started to work as a complementary practitioner in 1999, and recognised that many of my clients' health issues were connected to food. I decided to study nutrition in depth, and took a degree in Nutrition and Health Sciences at the University of Teesside.
After completing my degree in 2005, I set up Foodworks to provide practical, realistic nutritional advice and support. Whether you want to lose weight, eat more healthily or learn new cookery skills, I can help you achieve your goals. My advice and support are based on your needs, lifestyle and budget. You can learn how to establish long term healthier eating habits and regain your positive attitude towards food. My emphasis is always on practical ideas and realistic advice, to help you make the changes you would like to make.
As a complementary practitioner, I like to combine a person-centred, holistic approach with the scientific basis behind nutrition. I make sure that all my advice is supported by current research, and hope to dispel many of the food-related myths and scare stories that we encounter.
I also work part time as a complementary practitioner for County Durham and Darlington NHS Trust in their haematology and chemotherapy units.

I have a first class honours degree in Nutrition and Health Sciences from the University of Teesside, and have worked as a complementary practitioner since 1999. As well as working with individuals, I have also provided nutritional expertise for organisations such as West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, Redcar & Cleveland Council, EDF Energy and Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon, where I am a regular speaker at their community cancer network conferences. I also run short courses and workshops for individuals and groups to enable them to make more informed food choices.
