About me

Are digestive issues, hot flushes and fatigue in peri/menopause getting you down? You are not alone. 

Many clients when the come to see me...

  • swing between loose bowel movements and constipation
  • feel like the lack of sleep is debilitating
  • are experiencing terrible gas/wind
  • are bloated and it’s making them feel heavy, uncomfortable and exhausted
  • convinced their acid reflux is because of perimenopause
  • are dealing with IBS flare-ups 

Please know you’re not abnormal – gut symptoms can be a big part of hormonal changes and peri/menopause for a lot of people and I can help you to manage these symptoms. 

My name is Emily Foster, I’m a dietitian and nutritionist with 10 years of experience and I specialize in peri/menopause. I help people master long-term “gut calm” with the following 5 pillars:

#1) Nutrition: personalized nutrition to reduce peri/menopause symptoms and foster long-term health

#2) Sleep: using CBT, food and practical techniques to reduce fatigue and improve sleep 

#3) Mindfulness & Stress Management: calming the mind to help calm the gut, improving sleep, body appreciation & awareness

#4) Activity: using physical activity that you enjoy as a long-term tool for managing peri/menopausal symptoms and creating body appreciation

#5) Enjoyment: running through all the previous 4 pillars – everything we discuss is with enjoyment and self-care in mind. This helps to create a sustainable, long-term plan

If you’re ready to begin you’re journey to “gut calm” – let me hold space for you with my private practice, A Gutsy Menopause®. Get in touch for your free 15-minute discovery call!

Training, qualifications & experience

Originally from just outside of Toronto, Canada, I completed my Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Nutrition from the University of Guelph, in 2012 (known as "Canada's Food & Agriculture University"). I then went on to complete a dietetic clinical internship programme in Nova Scotia's hospital and health network, Capital Health in 2013. 

I have had varied and unique experiences as a dietitian & nutritionist in both Canada and the UK. Re: major highlights - My nutrition consultancy, Glowing Potential, focusing on women's health had the privilege of designing and implementing a digital, dietitian-led healthy pregnancy programme, commissioned by the NHS and WW, GBR. Our team of dietitians and nutritionists also were the lead providers for the GLoW Diabetes study between WW, GBR and the University of Cambridge. 

A Gutsy Menopause® is my passion - my private practice works 1:1 and with wonderful clients going through peri/menopause. Whether it be because of POI, surgical or otherwise.
