I'm a no-nonsense nutritionist with a reasonable fee structure and a strong belief in the healing quality of good food. Through dietary changes together with supplementation when required, many health issues can be overcome. I have extensive experience in supporting clients who suffer from; allergies and food intolerances, cardiovascular issues, and hormonal imbalances (such as fertility, stress intolerance, hormonal imbalance, metabolic syndrome).
There is so much information at our fingertips, but there is also so much bad information out there resulting in confusion. I believe there are simple solutions, and simple dietary solutions. Many non-communicable diseases can be avoided with the right diet, as has been stated by the World Health Organisation. Eating well can be easy and does not need to involve consuming rare powdered root vegetables grown in the rain forest, nor seaweed cultivated the other side the of world! The key is eating food, real food, and according to our own individuality. This is where nutritional therapists come in. Our advice is science backed but individual based. When you contact me I will tell you how is best for YOU to eat, I will not give you a standard protocol.
I first studied nutrition in 2004 at Raworth College and since then have completed a BSc in Nutritional Medicine at University of West London and in the last year I have completed a Masters degree in Food, Nutrition and Health at University College Dublin with a first class honours. I am a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT), the professional body for Nutritional Therapists. I also have a certificate in clinical strategies for clients with SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), run by Invivo Clinical and I have helped many clients with this condition.
Finally, I am very interested in special diets and have been vegetarian, vegan, paleo and a raw-foodist in the past myself, so I can formulate diets from experience as well as from the scientific knowledge. I have formulated menus for the renowned gourmet food company, the Pure Package, based on the paleo diet. No diet is too complicated!

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.
