About me

Hi I’m Fiona, a qualified ​​Nutritional therapist and Sport and Exercise Rehabilitator.

I help people with:

  • Sports nutrition (weight-loss, muscle gain, sport-specific nutrition, exercise plans)
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Gut challenges

A ‘pill for an ill’?

You may have tried (and given up) on a medical route or a generic diet plan after working with a personal trainer or other nutrition professionals that don’t look at your challenges holistically.

This can be really frustrating and a lot of people arrive at our first session with a ‘pill for an ill’ mentality. This is because your previous efforts haven’t created the weight loss or relieved your symptoms and it is becoming more urgent for you to do something about it!

The real truth is, there isn’t a single approach that can work for everyone.  

Clients are surprised when I offer tailored suggestions, this could be:

  • Herbs and nutrients that can increase performance and recovery
  • Healthy food that also meets your taste requirements
  • Individual exercise suggestions 

Food therapy?

Doctors and nutritionist appointments tend to last 15-20 minutes, which isn’t really long enough for you to get deep enough into your challenges.

Our initial session will last 1-1.5 hours and we always start with listening to where you are right now. Physical change comes with a lot of thoughts and worries and it’s important that you feel listened to before discuss any change.

I love speaking to my clients on Whatsapp regularly because the in-between support is just as important, I won’t leave you to go away and work on your plans yourself. Some clients send me pictures of their food plates or ingredients so I can check them or the menu in a restaurant. Everyone has a different way of coping with their diet and this feedback helps clients to stay motivated!

Surprising changes

You will gain massive body awareness. Not about your symptoms but how food makes you feel and what newfound energy is like. The most surprising thing about this awareness is that my suggested approach is more enjoyable and easier than rigid diets.

I’ll explain to you how your symptoms are affecting you and the science behind that. We’ll also cover what difference herbs and nutrients make within your body. Clients enjoy this approach because they can resonate with suggestions I make, this education will stay with you!

To start gaining new awareness about your body and diet, email me to book your initial consultation today.
