“…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 all have every day in the choices we make such as how we live our lives and what we put in our mouths. There is so much we can do to restore balance in order to live a full and happy life.
I take a holistic view of health because there is a huge potential in lifestyle medicine as well as diet. For example, stress (in all its varieties such as physical and psychological) is often one of the key drivers of disease. Building resilience to stress is an effective approach with enormous healing potential.
I work with people with a range of health issues. My particular areas of interest are in supporting digestion, hormonal, thyroid and immune health.
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.
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 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.
