About me

 As a fully registered nutritional therapist, I specialise in food addiction recovery, emotional eating, & those navigating an alcohol free life. 

My clients have difficult & often complicated relationships with food, leading to years of weight issues, uncontrollable food cravings, crazy diets, dysfunctional body image thoughts, & eating to soothe emotional states, such as stress, sadness & boredom.

Their behaviour can leave them feeling ashamed, guilty, and utterly hopeless. Negative repercussions in family, social & work life can often occur.

I help them find hope again, by supporting them on a path to food freedom. 

I help them understand that addiction is a brain illness.

The journey is not simply about diet changes & weight loss. It will include new ways of thinking, changing established mindsets, & discovering joy & pleasure in life again. 

I help them discover their 'why' -  their personal goals, which are so vital in changing behaviour towards improved health & optimism, less anxiousness, & creating a life 'you don't want to run away from'. 

I offer an environment of compassion, & healing from emotional discomfort, often working through root causes. 

Addiction is now more prevalent than ever before, but there is always hope of recovery. 

I offer one-off consultations, or packages of 3 and 6 months. I am happy to see clients in person or via Zoom. 

Client comments:

"She has changed the way I shop, cook and eat food! I have lost all my cravings, which scuppered all previous attempt to lose weight."
