About me

“…the most important and the most powerful tool to change your health is your fork.” Mark A. Hyman MD

It was after I felt let down by my own ill health that I decided to train as a nutritional therapist. I had always been interested in food, lifestyle and wellbeing and wanted to unlock the potential that we have every day in the choices we make. These seemingly insignificant choices such as how we live our lives and what we put in our mouths are in fact immensely powerful. There is so much we can each do to restore balance in order to live a full and happy life.

I take a holistic view of health because lifestyle medicine is key alongside diet. Adjusting food choices, building resilience to stress, the use of functional testing and supplements all have great potential as effective approaches towards progress and healing.

I work with people with a range of health issues. My particular areas of interest are in supporting the digestion, hormones, thyroid and energy levels.

Where to start

I offer a FREE CHAT first of all, so I’d be delighted if you made contact to talk about your current situation and what I can offer you.

When I work with someone new, I gather a thorough health history to look at your whole story. This can start to reveal who you are and the root causes, drivers or mediators of the issues you are experiencing.

I then work with you to develop a nutrition and wellbeing plan. This is tailored to you, your circumstances and your preferences whilst also looking at any barriers to change. Nutritional therapy requires engagement and collaboration and I am here to motivate inspire and support you along the way in order to meet your health goals.

I often suggest functional testing which can reveal valuable information about what is driving and compounding symptoms.

I offer packages and consultation so book in for a chat to see which would suit you best.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained and qualified with a Diploma in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy after three years of studying with The College of Naturopathic Medicine. This course included two years of supervised clinical practice.

Since I qualified I have been

  • seeing private clients
  • delivering trainings to staff of care provisions including a group of independent specialist colleges across the UK
  • running talks and workshops
  • working with local food enterprises

As a full member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council I am committed to undertaking regular trainings to meeting the required continued professional development expectations each year.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
