About me

I help women, children and families find the root cause of their chronic physical and mental health issues. I take a functional medicine approach using food, lifestyle and carefully selected supplements.  Where necessary, I use functional tests to help guide us.

I believe the body knows how to heal itself if given the right tools to do so.  I offer a personalised and tailored approach using the latest evidence to create realistic and workable plans for busy, modern people. 

Appointments are online or face to face by arrangement. Free 20 minute discovery call to see if I can help - or suggest someone who can. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained for four years with the renowned Institute of Optimum Nutrition in London.  I'm a Registered Nutritional Therapist with BANT, the leading body of Nutritional Therapists requiring members to follow a strict code of conduct and continuous training. I am also registered with the CNHC. I have a background in legal professional services which has given me first hand experience of the juggle of modern family life. 

I have a particular affinity for women/child health, anxiety and mood disorders and chronic fatigue and long term infections.

Nutrition topics

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.
