About me

The benefits of eating well cannot be underestimated; it may be the best insurance for your future health.

I work one-to-one with clients to recommend an individual programme of eating which may help make lasting improvements to their health.  People who wish to lose weight, feel more energetic and eat more healthily may find it useful to consult a nutritional therapist.

I work with clients with all kinds of conditions, healthy weight loss is also an interest of mine.

I blog on my website about all kinds of subjects to do with nutrition.  I also teach gluten-free baking and cookery.  See my website www.redapplenutrition.co.uk for more information.

I regularly undertake continuing professional development to keep up with the latest research.

I am a member of BANT, registered with the CNHC and fully insured.

I didn't want a diet – I wanted a change of eating plan, so that I could get the best out of the food I was having. I looked for a nutritional therapist, and found Deborah. Pre-appointment, I had to complete a questionnaire, which was quite in-depth, which helped confirm that this was the right thing to do. During the consultation, Deborah was very informative, and also very specific to my own personal requirements. It was totally created for me, and for me only. I went away and shopped, and planned. After about 5 days, I was already feeling the benefits. Two of my friends have since seen Deborah! I knew what to do, but needed professional guidance and support. I got this. Thank you!

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.

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.
