Cathy Court OBE MSc
Hi, I’m Cathy
I’m a registered nutritionist (ANutr) working with one-to-one clients with weight loss and healthy eating. I use behaviour change techniques plus my knowledge of nutrition science to develop personalised, realistic plans for my clients, for sustained dietary change.
As a member of the Association for Nutrition (recognised by the NHS) I give proven science-based advice.
How my sessions work
In the initial consultation I do a lot of listening to find out how food fits into your day-to-day life. Together we explore your current diet in detail and understanding your aims and concerns. Based on this we then develop a plan that will move you towards a healthy diet in an achievable and sustainable way.
I can help you to:
- Identify which aspects of your diet to work on first.
- Understand your triggers for unhelpful behaviours and the barriers to healthy eating.
- Set realistic and achievable diet goals.
- Develop new habits that last.

Have a free no obligation 15-minute telephone call to chat over your aims and to find out if a consultation is right for you.
My one-to-one consultations are currently all done remotely (over the phone, Face-time, Skype or Zoom).
My specialist areas include:
- Weight management
- Reducing blood sugar
- Staying fit and able into old age
- Improving gut health
- Helping the switch to a healthy vegan diet
What my clients say:
"After many crash diets I decided to seek help from a local Registered Nutritionist, Cathy Court. I’m extremely impressed with Cathy’s approach. Her advice and support have been first class and she has the tools I need to develop a long-term healthy eating and exercise regime. I’m so delighted to have discovered Cathy Court to help me along the path to better health. It’s also so nice to be able to fit into my t-shirts and trousers.”
"I must tell you that I already feel like a new person… you might think I’m exaggerating but seriously it is like turning the lights back on. I am so glad I contacted you for this dietary assessment because I was really struggling.”
"I asked Cathy to look at my diet and design a food plan to give me better strength and energy. Although mostly I ate sensibly, she noted that protein, selenium and vitamin D was on the low side. She gave me really good practical suggestions on how to improve this and her ideas took into account my likes and dislikes. A great help and all achieved in an encouraging and kind manner."
Training, qualifications & experience
- Physiology and Biochemistry BSc(Hons)
- Human Nutrition MSc (Distinction)
- Behaviour change course in motivational interviewing
In addition to working with one to one clients, I am a regular contributor to several magazines, and the volunteer nutritionist for cholesterol charity Heart UK.
Previously I spent fifteen years developing the parenting site Netmums. My focus was on making family eating healthy and fun, and using the parent power of Netmums to campaign on food related issues making it easier for parents to serve up healthier meals. I also developed an online course, sponsored by the Department of Health, giving parents confidence in their own ability to cook and provide healthy food for loved ones (Court et al., 2010).
