Deirdre Swede LL.B, DBS, DipION, mBANT, CNHC
I am a registered Nutritional Therapist working from a beautiful clinic in Welwyn, Hertfordshire. I also conduct consultations by Skype.
I combine nutritional therapy and positive lifestyle choices to help my clients look and feel their best. Deirdre Swede Nutrition was founded to provide a focus on female hormonal health . My mission is to help women live healthier, better balanced lives, particularly during their life transitions. I am passionate about working collaboratively with my clients to restore harmony and balance. As a busy working mother, I understand the challenges faced by women today and I devise a realistic, achievable nutrition and lifestyle plan that fits into my clients' busy lives.
Some of the health concerns I support include hormonal health, weight management, gut health and autoimmunity. I help my clients live happier, healthier lives as a result of nutritional and lifestyle changes. My focus is on building long lasting and meaningful relationships with my clients.
I regularly attend courses for continued professional development and to ensure that my knowledge is up to date. All programmes are evidence based, taking into account the latest and most respected scientific research.
Alongside my private consultations, I also run online and attendance group programmes to reconnect my clients with good nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits, as well as regular workshops on Eating for Hormonal Balance and other topics.
If you would like to find out more about how we can work together to optimise your health and wellbeing, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a 15 minute free consultation call.
