Hello, I’m Emma a Registered Nutritional Therapist. Food is one of my greatest passions and I am an enthusiastic advocate of its ability to help us be the best we can be by nourishing our bodies, our relationships and our communities.
Food is vital to our survival, but beyond survival we want to thrive. When we eat the foods most appropriate for our specific needs we are nourished more wholly. There is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to nutrition, we are all individuals and require a personalised approach. I work with my clients on a one-to-one basis to investigate what their nutritional needs are and how these needs can be best served. Nutrition therapy has plenty to offer.
In the busy world we live in we so often become tired rushing around trying to complete a never-ending to do list. I especially enjoy working with clients to help them re-establish balance in their lives and reconnect with their needs and how best to meet them.
After working in the clothing industry for many years I grew tired of the hectic daily routine and decided to explore a new career, one I hoped would provided me with opportunities to make a positive contribution to my community. Having always had a keen interest in food as medicine, Nutritional Therapy was an obvious choice for me. I enrolled at the College of Natural Medicine (CNM) where I completed a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at CNM where I learnt so much, and everyday I am grateful that I can continue to study this fascinating subject alongside my clients.

Nutritional Therapy consultations
Prior to any consultation I will ask you to compile a 5-day food diary, including both weekdays and weekend days and to bring it along on the day of the consultation. When compiling your food diary please focus on being honest rather than good. This information will contribute to my understanding of your nutritional status.
Initial consultation – £80
An initial consultation will last 60 mins. During the consultation you will be asked detailed questions about; current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, sleep, levels of physical activity, use of medication & supplements and diet. A mini physical examination of your nails, tongue and eyes may be performed if appropriate. At this time you will have the opportunity to discuss your aims and any challenges you foresee.
After the consultation I will review all the information gathered and keeping the aims you have identified in mind, draw up your personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan. If appropriate for you supplement recommendations may be included along with functional testing. Your plan will be emailed to you and followed up with a phone or Skype call to answer any questions you might have.
Longer appointments can be arranged where required for complex cases.
Follow up – £50
I would recommend a follow up appointment after 4-6 weeks. This appointment will last 45 mins and focus on reviewing progress, addressing any challenges that arose and gathering any new relevant information. Results from functional testing will be reviewed where appropriate.
An updated personalised plan will be drawn up considering all the information gathered. Your plan will be emailed to you and followed up with a phone or Skype call to answer any questions you might have.
