Clare Backhouse, PhD, dipION, mBANT, CNHC, specialist in thyroid health
If you want to improve your digestion, energy, mood or thyroid health, you've come to the right place!
My approach takes the best scientific research, and tailors it to fit your unique needs and lifestyle. Your health plan therefore feels truly do-able and brings solid results.
Having conquered my own illnesses through nutrition, I know what it's like to try nutritional therapy for the first time and this gives me compassion and insight into what new clients want and need.
My clients routinely increase their sense of wellbeing, while gaining great habits that bring long-term benefit.
With a background in academic research, I qualified at the UK's longest-established nutrition training school, the Institute of Optimum Nutrition.
I see clients from the UK and abroad, online via Zoom.

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.
Get in touch to find out about prices. And please take me up on a free discovery call - a no-pressure way to find out about how nutritional therapy works and how it might help you. Just drop me an email to set it up.
I hold consultations Monday to Friday with some evenings available, do just ask.
I also offer free 15-minute chats so that you can find out more before deciding.
