About me

I am passionate about helping women, children and families find the root cause of their chronic health issues. I believe that getting food and lifestyle right can be utterly transformational! It can be overwhelming working out what to eat when you feel unwell. I enjoy creating personalised and individual plans to get you back to full health. I use the latest scientific evidence combined with common sense to create workable and practical plans. 

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/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.

Further information

I mainly work online but face to face meetings can be arranged in both East Lothian and Edinburgh. 

I generally see clients for a minimum of two appointments, with the first appointment taking 1.15 hours and follow ups lasting 45 minutes.  

Before your first appointment, you will be issued a lifestyle and diet questionnaire and diet so that I can be well prepared for our first appointment.  I will work with you to provide a personalised, one-to-one programme of nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.
