About me

Hi, I'm Gail. I'm a nutritionist and women's health expert.

I help women over the age of 40 who are struggling with health and hormones, to thrive instead of just survive and to get their mojo back 

My Story

I have experienced first-hand how the symptoms of hormonal changes in my forties can affect quality of life.

I thought that I had been lucky enough to escape the dreaded midlife symptoms that I had heard so much about. But a family holiday to Greece changed all that...

During what should have been the perfect family summer break, I began to experience constant hot flushes and night sweats.

Very quickly the amazing trip that we had been looking forward to all year, became a holiday to remember for all the wrong reasons… my sleep was disrupted and I felt tired, irritable and miserable.

I snapped at my family and my mood was low.

This all took me by complete surprise. I was a nutritionist after all...and I had spent thousands of hours studying scientific research and supporting other women with symptoms just like mine.

I was also no stranger to issues with hormonal health as my wellness journey had begun more than 25 years ago with a painful, inflammatory and hormone-related condition.

Conventional medicine had not helped me and it took many years for me to be formally diagnosed. At the time, I was in my twenties when arguably I should have been in the best health of my life, but my symptoms grew progressively worse. AND they badly affected my life.

Something had to change but it took me years to find that “something”. That "something" turned out to be nutrition.

Working with a nutritionist was a major turning point for me.

Within just a few months my health was dramatically changed. AND for the first time in many years, I was able to manage my symptoms. In fact, my experience had such a profound effect on me and my health, that I re-trained as a nutritionist.

I now support other women to make changes to their health and hormone issues through nutrition and lifestyle changes and by using state of the art testing to get the best results.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a Registered Nutritionist from the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in 2013.

I have since furthered my studies and have completed a Master’s degree (MSc) in Advanced nutrition. My year-long dissertation project was on a menopause-related topic.

I have also completed training with the Institute for Functional Medicine course,  Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP)

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.
