About me

It's a confusing world out there, and the messages regarding what we 'should' do with our nutrition and health really can add to this problem.

What is the best way to lose weight? What about if I have high cholesterol and high blood sugars? How do my genetics affect things? What should I eat for the menopause? Why do I feel so bloated? Why won't my child eat vegetables? Why do I crave carbs? What about my gut health? I have heard every question you can think of, and worked with many different clients over my years in the NHS and in private practice. I will help you to see why these things happen and how you can change things to build a healthy relationship with food.     

Areas of interest include weight management, chronic health conditions including diabetes and cardiovascular disease, also women’s health, sports nutrition, frailty and older persons, gastroenterology (including constipation, IBS and FODMAPs, IBD) surgery, critical care, children's health, fussy eating, ARFID, eating disorders  Available for face-to-face assessments or virtual assessments for flexibility.
