About me

How can I help you;

I am a nutritional therapist who trained at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), completing my three year nutritional therapy diploma in 2013, achieving a distinction, and winning the Ian Marber (Food Doctor) award for 'Outstanding Literature Review', an academic research paper relating to Alzheimer's disease and Omega-3 fatty acids.

I am passionate about helping people achieve better health, whether that means addressing specific health concerns or simply offering informed health and nutrition advice. My advice and approach are tailored to suit my client's needs.

Including advice on;

  • Digestion
  • Autoimmunity
  • Allergies, intolerances and sensitivities

I am dedicated to helping clients eat well through greater understanding of how to cook quick, healthy and balanced meals.

I strongly believe that my experience gives me the passion, and deep knowledge required to truly understand the needs of my clients and to help them achieve their desired health goals.

I work using the principals of Functional Medicine (see www.IFM.org for more details), which looks for the true cause of disease and illness which may be a combination of diet, lifestyle, genetics and environmental factors, rather than simply addressing symptoms in isolation.

Testimonials;

Libby helped me to understand what's good for my body explaining everything in a very simple way. Her advice is doable and easy to employ and it focuses on the general well being rather than just weight loss.
She's also very approachable and always available to reply to questions you might have once you've started changing your habits. (Martina)

Libby's knowledge and expertise in nutrition has helped me greatly improve my life. She has enabled me to better understand the connection between my body and what I fuel it with, which has led to increased vital energy levels. I highly recommend Libby to anyone seeking to improve their health and well-being. (Raj, Actor)

Libby has given me practical help with developing a more rounded approach to food, one that also impacts on my entire wellbeing. I have always been susceptible to emotional eating and making snap choices in times of stress. Libby has given me tips to make considered choices and has helped shift my thinking to a position of nourishment, rather than starving myself. I have goals to lose some weight and re-balance my blood sugars and Libby's solid advice is helping me make that achievable and part of my everyday life. (Sarah, Digital Producer)
