About me

If you are an adult or elderly adult dealing with weight gain and looking for help with weight loss, do contact me for a chat to see how I can help. If you are interested in improving your mental health through nutrition and lifestyle or dealing with autoimmune conditions, I can help. My sessions are online on Zoom and FaceTime; however, I can arrange face to face consultations if preferred.

I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist, Nutrigenomic Practitioner and Health Coach. I am based in Hertfordshire but work with clients in the UK and Ireland. I specialise in autoimmune conditions, gut health, mood disorders and weight loss. I offer DNA testing to my clients.

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.
