Emilia Gordes BSc (Hons) ANutr.
Hi! I am Emilia, a Registered Associate Nutritionist with nearly 6 years of research and experience in the field and a thorough knowledge and understanding of the scientific, evidence based nutrition, food chains and its impact on food choices, of food in a social and behavioural context and an understanding of how to apply the scientific principles of nutrition for the promotion of health and wellbeing of individuals.
My practice is fully insured and registered with the UK's official registration body for nutritionists, Association For Nutrition, which implies compliance with a series of Standards of Ethics, Conduct and Performance, including always acting in the best interest of clients, maintaining high standards of scientific integrity, keeping up to date with the developments in nutrition field, maintain high standards of conduct, maintain client confidentiality, being objective, fair, balanced and proportionate in professional statements or recommendations made.
Having previously worked as a Complementary Therapist, I understand the importance and value of a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, which I very much incorporate in my nutrition practice.
Apart from health and nutrition, my other passion is for environmental awareness, which led me founding Environmental Nutrition Action Project, in which I advocate for sustainable diets and environmental nutrition. Having followed a plant based diet for 7 years, I can fully support and advice on vegetarian/vegan diets, however I work with a wide variety of clients with various backgrounds, restricted diets or cultural dietary preferences.
I firmly believe in the body's ability to heal and thrive with vitality and energy, simply by eating the right foods, in the right amount, at the right time.

To find out about my fees please email me for a fees breakdown file.
Before your initial consultation with me, you will be asked to complete a diet, health and lifestyle questionnaire including a 3 day food diary. The initial consultation lasts up to 90 minutes, during which your health, diet and lifestyle will be discussed in detail. I will then create an achievable, personalised programme designed to address your specific needs and goals and fit in around your daily life. This will include specific dietary and lifestyle recommendations, recipe and meal planning suggestions to help you achieve your goals and, if necessary, suggested supplements.
In order to get the most out of your nutrition and diet plan, I highly recommend that you return for at least one follow-up consultation. This allows me to give ongoing support and advice, as well as monitor progress made since the last visit, and to update the strategy to ensure that your programme is working effectively for you.
