About me

Surrey and London based nutritional therapist offering nutritional therapy based upon the functional medicine model from her clinic location in Guildford, Surrey, London, and internationally via virtual consultation.

Hi I’m Libby, I am a nutritional therapist and functional medicine practitioner.

Having graduated from the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition in 2013 with a Distinction and the prestigious Ian Marber (Food Doctor) award, I have over seven years experience working in clinical nutrition, utilising a functional medicine approach to identify the true underlying cause of my clients health concerns.
My journey into the world of nutrition all began when my own health challenges led me to research nutritional and natural approaches to wellness. Having gone through the conventional medicine system with no real answers, I, like you decided that the answer was to be found in food and nutrition.

Due to my own and my family’s experience of autoimmunity I made the decision to focus all of my attention on, and pour all of my passion into providing a lasting transformative experience for those experiencing autoimmune disease.
I know what it is like to search endlessly for the answers, and I also know that with the right approach it really is possible to regain health.

Are you ready to take control of your health, and enable yourself to live the life that you wish?

My approach is always scientific, systematic, and tailored to the individual. I find the answers where many may not.

Here’s how we can work together;
1. You can apply to join my upcoming 12 week ‘Calming Autoimmunity’ program designed specifically for people wanting to learn and implement the fundamental dietary and lifestyle approaches to autoimmunity. You can apply to join the program here.

2. I work with a handful of people on a 1:1 basis. You can learn about and apply for 1:1 therapy here

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.

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)
