Hillary Carroll - Registered Nutritional Therapist (BSc), mBANT, rCNHC
As a registered nutritional therapist, I work in partnership with my clients to help them achieve their health goals. I very much view my relationship with clients as a partnership based on mutual trust and commitment.
At the beginning of your partnership, I take a comprehensive case history and leverage conventional and functional testing in order to help uncover the root causes of your symptoms and challenges. I then provide a bespoke diet and lifestyle programme which is realistic and sustainable in order to achieve meaningful progress.
I do not adhere to any extreme or fad diets and place an emphasis on the fact that health is so much more than just the food we choose to eat. I view you as a biochemically unique individual, rather than a collection of symptoms, and take into account various factors influencing your health (sleep, environment, work, relationships, etc) so we can identify the underlying imbalances and dysfunction and aim to restore balance and wellbeing.
SUPPLEMENTS & TESTING
While my primary focus is always on diet and lifestyle changes, I do believe in the therapeutic use of high-quality supplements and frequently recommend tests through the NHS and private laboratories. These are optional and will be discussed during the consultation.
Ultimately, my goal is to provide a compassionate and non-judgemental partnership where I can help you get to the root causes of your challenges, so you can stop feeling tied down by disease and be free to live the life you want.

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.
Please see www.hillarycarroll.com for further details.
I offer a complimentary 15-minute pre-consultation call, where we will briefly review your history and health challenges to see if we are a good match to work together.
