About me

I am a degree qualified Registered Nutritional Therapist currently providing personalised nutritional therapy consultations on-line via Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp. I support people with many issues including optimising gut health, immunity and stress. Other areas include weight management, blood sugar regulation, energy optimisation and nutrition for runners. Call now for a free 15-minute telephone consultation to see if I am the right person to help and support you.

Are you confused by what you read or see in the media?

Struggling with bloating?

Feel tired all the time?

Feeling stressed or overwhelmed?

Struggle to maintain a healthy weight?

Want to feel like your old self again?

Then you have come to the right place. I can help support both your physical and mental health through diet and lifestyle interventions using the latest evidence-based research in the field of nutrition and nutritional therapy.

Once a consultation has been booked I will email you a health questionnaire and a 3 day food diary which will need to be returned at least 2 days prior to the consultation. This is so that I can gain a deeper understanding of you and do any research needed prior to the consultation.

At the initial consultation (allow up to 90 minutes), a detailed assessment of your life story will be taken. This will include your health history, your family history, current and previous medications, psychological and emotional factors, exercise, stress levels, dietary habits and any symptoms of ill-health. Then with your goals in mind, a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan can be devised.

If your symptoms suggest, or I think you may benefit from testing, I can discuss this with you at the consultation. Some tests that I recommend may be available via the health service, but for functional testing, I use an accredited private laboratory which I can arrange if need be.

I am currently studying for a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy which is an amazing addition to nutritional therapy. Solution focused hypnotherapy works by accessing the subconscious allowing for positive change. If you are interested in hypnotherapy alongside nutritional therapy, I am offering FREE hypnotherapy sessions with each paying nutritional therapy client. Please get in touch for further information.
