About me

I am a Registered Nutritionist specialising in working with high performing individuals. Using evidenced-based, practical solutions, my tailored programmes can increase energy and performance, sharpen focus, improving sleep and immunity to help you reach your health goal.

I work closely with organisations and individuals, helping people with all health concerns to create sustainable, long-term health resilience. My special interests are Men's Health, Shift Work, & Travel Wellness | Jet Lag.

As well as a MSc (Hons) in Holistic Nutrition, I am a qualified Registered Nutrition Consulting Practitioner and a Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner, registered with the International Organisation of Nutrition Consultants (www.ionc.org) and a Provisional Member of BANT.

I have trained in functional medicine, and offer genetic and laboratory testing in clinic. I have written for publications and researched nutrition and performance health for over 10 years. I have gained resilience expertise through the Resilience Institute, my current training: Covid

My mission is to transform my clients’ lives in realistic and practical ways, offering a bespoke service that fits in with everyday life. I want you to make changes that are attainable, and with maximum benefits.

In my corporate work I offer online training and workshops for your team, and one 2 one leadership consultations.

Originally from New Zealand, I grew up with a love of fresh, whole food in a natural environment. My past work in high profile, high octane global documentaries saw me travelling frequently, globally.  This experience helps me when working with my clients, as I understand what it means to perform in a high energy demand arena when working remotely.

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.
