About me

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.

Book a free 15-minute call to ask anything you like, with no pressure to make an appointment - just drop me an email.

Training, qualifications & experience


I have undertaken extra training with the Kharrazian Institute in offering individualised support for people with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's.

Particular experience working with a range of thyroid conditions and also autoimmune conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis.

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

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
