I’m a registered nutritionist, Kresser Institute Trained Practitioner and your ally in your mission to have the best quality of life possible. I help people like you tap into the physical and emotional resources you already have – but may have lost sight of – so that you can live as fully as possible despite having a chronic illness.
I’m also a wife and a mother who has witnessed the challenges that family members faced as they tried to navigate life having been diagnosed with a neurological condition.
I have witnessed the fear, loneliness and hopelessness that a diagnosis like this can bring and wished that things could be different.
My experiences, love of learning and a burning desire to help others prompted me to enrol on the nutrition course at the College Of Naturopathic Medicine and to subsequently complete the Kresser Institute’s ADAPT Practitioner Training Program.
I also trained with Lucille Leader and Dr Geoffrey Leader in the collaborative management of Parkinson’s and I am currently training with Dr Nina Fuller-Shavel to deepen my knowledge of a whole-person (and physiology-based) approach to both cancer prevention and support during and beyond cancer treatment.
It is both a pleasure and a privilege to offer people living with neurological conditions and cancer the best of both worlds – a root cause approach designed to complement medical intervention.
Let me help you.

Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
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.
I see clients at my clinics in Oxfordshire and Warwickshire but primarily work online.
Appointments are available at weekends only.
I offer a free 20-minute Introductory Session as a first step.
