Hi, I'm Ferdia, a registered Nutritional Therapist and Functional Medicine practitioner based in Eryri (Snowdonia). If you are tired of living with chronic symptoms, I can help. I know from experience how scary and lonely it can be living with strange symptoms that stop you doing what you love, especially when mainstream healthcare runs out of answers. It is a privilege to support others as they find their own.
The choice to take ownership of your health is one of the most powerful you can make. Should you make that choice, I will meet you where you are at, help you make sense of your symptoms using an evidence-based approach, and develop a personalised plan with you to guide you on your path to better health. So that you can enjoy feeling like you again.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am by nature an investigator and research enthusiast. In addition to a Postgraduate Diploma in Nutrition Science and Practice, I have a Masters in Research Methodology and Design, professional experience of leading all stages of the research process and have co-authored a book on analysis and critical thinking. I am highly skilled at interpreting research, making sense of complex information and teasing out what is most important to help people get where they want be.
I am also a dedicated and lifelong rock climber. I know what it means to enjoy participating in sport to a high level whilst managing health issues. And why you don't need to compromise health for performance.
I am trained in the Functional Medicine approach, which seeks to address the root causes of ill health and disease. My approach also draws on the many brilliant methods and practitioners I encountered on my journey to get well including brain retraining, feminine spirituality and time spent with Andrea Cullen - a healer and Olympic nutritionist based in Ireland.
I have learned that the key to really helping people is building a trusting relationship and listening to their story. I am able to provide a space for you to feel truly safe, seen and understood as you find your way back to yourself and better health.
My journey healing from fatigue and multisystemic issues has opened my eyes to the power of diet, lifestyle choices and our own inner resources to resolve – and prevent – so many health issues. I never got a diagnosis, but felt such a difference after making a few simple changes that I want to share what I have learned in order that others can feel better too.
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including massage, aromatherapy and nutrition.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.

When I work
I offer three one-to-one programmes designed to help you on the road to health. Take a look to see which is right for you.
I do also offer single consultations if you prefer to book in as you go. But for best outcomes and best value, I recommend booking a programme. This ensures you benefit from my 4 step Functional Medicine approach and between-session support.
We can meet online via Google Meet ups. Or, if you have a quiet and private space at home or elsewhere, I can travel up to 60 minutes by car in order to come to you. Please allow for fuel costs of 45p per mile.
