About me

I help midlife women transform their health by helping them navigate their own Hormonal mayhem. By giving them the tools to help them reach their happy weight, have great skin, and regain their energy and zest for life.  

If you are fed up with yo-yo dieting and desperate to get off that diet treadmill and lose weight for good, without having to count sins or calories? Or do you want to be free of pain, be clear-headed and have the energy to live your best life? Do you wake up feeling unrefreshed and just a bit blah? You may have unexplained digestive discomfort, and you really don’t like what you see looking back at you in the mirror.  

It's common for women’s self-esteem in midlife to reach an all-time low. They feel stressed and overwhelmed and sleep goes out of the window! If any of the above resonates with you, and you feel you’ll never feel ‘NORMAL’ again, I get it, and you’re not on your own.  I can help.

As a teenager, I suffered terribly with symptoms related to hormonal imbalance from severe PMS symptoms including heavy periods, bad head, and skin, which was duplicated as an adult in pregnancy and then again in perimenopause. After I was given copious amounts of antibiotics for my skin when I was pregnant, I suffered from terrible digestive symptoms, then – triggered by all those antibiotics – developed an autoimmune condition. The lowest points in my health and the realisation that the medical model did not have all the answers, led me to study nutrition. Now, a handful of years down the line and fully post-menopausal, I devote my time to helping other women struggling with midlife health symptoms. Midlife can feel debilitating without the right support, especially when you are also dealing with the everyday trials and tribulations of family life, and taking care of everyone else plus working, you almost forget who the old you, was! 

Studies have shown how you look after your health through Midlife can really impact your future health and longevity.  So, don’t delay, there is no time like the present, take that leap of faith and invest in your future health and well-being.

I ensure I work at your pace. You will feel nurtured and listened to. The plan will be based on your own needs. We will work collaboratively to avoid any overwhelm, after all, you are the person who will be making the changes, so this must be simple, doable, practical, and achievable.  There is no quick fix when it comes to your health after all you didn’t get here overnight, and for this reason, I like to get to know you over a course of weeks which allows me to gain a greater understanding of your needs, and explore what works for you, while enhancing the therapeutic relationship between us.  

I promise I will be holding your hand every step of the way

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.

Additional information

To achieve the best results and depending on your individual health or weight loss goals,  I offer a minimum of 6 weeks of support, and prices start from £399.

So depending on your health goals will determine the most suitable package for your individual requirements.

So initially I offer a complimentary 30-minute discovery call booked through my website at a time that suits you. This way we can establish your health and wellness goals and collaboratively, we can determine which package would be best suited to your individual needs.

Further information

I have extensive knowledge from my research into natural and chemical-free skincare and cosmetics from my experience in running my own skincare shop for 6 years prior to the pandemic.  As women, we can be very sensitive to hormone-disrupting chemicals found in everyday skincare and cosmetics, especially when we are going through hormonal changes so it is just as important to look after the outside of your body from products you put on your skin and breathe in, as well as from the food we eat.
