Registered Nutritional Therapist, mBANT, CNHC

About me

I’m a registered nutritional therapist supporting you to reduce the stress and discomfort of your gastrointestinal problems.

  My priority is to help you explore the root of your symptoms and move forward and take control of your digestion - so that your digestion doesn’t control you!

I provide support & accountability every step of the way.

Where are you with your symptoms?

  • You’ve put up with troubles for months or years, and simply learned to live with it
  • You don’t know where to start with therapies - or tried so many it’s become confusing
  • You’ve tried invasive procedures, like colonoscopy or gastroscopy, but with no findings
  • You feel ill, while not being medically ill, so doctors can’t see the problems
  • Or you have a medical condition, such as an Inflammatory Bowel Condition, and the discomfort is exhausting
  •   You’re at the end of your tether with no support and nowhere else to turn

Schedule a call

Get in touch with me today to arrange an  initial chat. From there, I’ll have a better understanding of  you and your symptoms, and will be able to explain your most appropriate options moving forward.

What my clients say:

'Helen was able to offer the expert support, guidance and knowledge I needed.  Right from the initial consultation Helen has listened to my concerns with a caring, kind and pro-active approach.

I really feel with the advice Helen provides around nutrition, appropriate supplements, testing and lifestyle improvements I am feeling in control of my digestion and health in general instead of it controlling me.

I would not hesitate to recommend Helen if you are looking to seek support with your nutritional health.

HR, Colchester, April 2019

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified from the College of Naturopathic Nutrition (CNM) in 2009 after 3 years of study.

I am a member of the British Association for  Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT).. I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Health Council (CNHC)

I am committed to continual professional development (CPD) and regularly attend seminars and workshops to update and broaden my knowledge on health topics and functional testing.

I have monthly mentoring sessions, with an amazingly experienced practitioner. This provides me with the opportunity to discuss (confidentially) and receive support with more complex cases.

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.

Fees

From £75.00 to £120.00
Free initial telephone session

Additional information

Initial Consultation (90 minutes) £120

Follow up (60 minutes) £75

Follow ups are intended to review your progress and agree the next most appropriate steps, as well as support you to stay on track.

I usually suggest the first follow up after approximately 2 weeks and then after that at regular intervals as needed (usually every 3-4 weeks). The number of follow ups very much depends on the aspect of your health that you wish to work on.

I am happy to advise you on the range of food intolerance tests available.

Further information

I would love to help you to improve your health. Please do get in touch so that we can arrange to have an initial chat at a mutually convenient time.

Food Intolerance Testing

I am able to arrange food intolerance testing. I often find that a food intolerance is only part of the picture and always recommend a full consultation alongside this type of testing to ensure we look at your health and symptoms more broadly.

Functional Testing

Sometimes it may be necessary to investigate a problem further. A range of functional tests are available. I will happily discuss and recommend the most appropriate test for you as part of your consultation.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.

The Tree Room is wheelchair accessible (via removable ramps) and there is a consulting room on the ground floor. There are toilet facilities on the ground floor but unfortunately these are not wheelchair accessible.
