About me

Emma has a very busy full-time practice where she offers Nutritional Therapy Consultations on all health issues.  She regularly supports client's gut health, hormone balance, weight loss, auto-immune conditions, optimal nutrition and wellbeing. Although Emma works to alleviate her client’s symptoms, her training in Functional Medicine focuses on finding each individual’s unique biochemical imbalances and looking at the body as a whole to assist her in understanding the root cause of the illness or condition.  She uses the most comprehensive nutritional analysis questionnaire, a thorough health history, observations, and laboratory testing, where necessary, to gather the information she needs.

As well as being an accredited Nutritional Therapist, she is also qualified and certified in Live and Dried Blood Analysis, HeartMath and metabolic balance.  The Live and Dried Blood Analysis provides valuable indications about nutritional imbalances and deficiencies, certain biochemical imbalances, immune system imbalances, micro-organisms (parasites, yeast and bacteria), and organ/system dysfunctions.  Although it cannot diagnose disease, it can show the impact that diet and lifestyle has had on health.  Live blood analysis is also a helpful visual tool for monitoring progress and showing clients the effects of the changes they have made.

The HeartMath gives Emma tools to help her clients manage stress and develop strategies to manage stress while minimising the detrimental effects of stress on our bodies.  Metabolic Balance creates individual nutritional plans to assist with weight loss supporting the body back to its unique metabolism.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair assess at the Hedena Health Centre in Oxford and at the Godswell Natural Health Centre in Bloxham but not at the Home Clinic.
