Jane Barrett DipION, mBANT, CNHC
I help women and children improve their digestion through the use of food. By getting to the root cause of your symptoms, we'll cut through the confusion of what to eat and create a plan that's perfect for you.
How can I help you?
Want to learn how to change your health, not just immediately, but for the rest of your life?
Do you have ‘normal’ tests from your GP but are still not feeling right?
Confused with media nutrition advice?
Worried about your children’s health?
Feel you need inspiration, practical advice and motivational support along your journey?
Welcome, I’m Jane and I’m here to help you…
How food changed my life
By changing my diet, it literally changed my life for the better. I had no idea that eating certain types of food, both healthy and not-so-healthy, could cause so many ongoing problems. This took me many decades to work out, including re-training as a nutritional therapist to turn my passion into a career.
I don’t want you to experience years of unnecessary frustration & worry. I want to help you like I helped myself, but in a quicker time-frame. By working closely with you, I aim to find out the root cause of your health issues, not apply the ‘sticky plaster’ approach of just looking at symptoms. This is important if you want to find long-lasting health and feel full of life again.
Most of my clients, (both women and children) come to see me looking to improve digestion, compromised gut health, explore possible food intolerances, enhance energy levels and manage stress. Digestion, in particular is an area I am passionate about as I know how debilitating it can be; I experienced it for many decades (needlessly, don't let that be you though!). Once I start exploring their individual situation, I have usually explored hormones, digestion, immunity, detoxification – they are all closely linked to health and wellbeing and you are a unique individual. My role is find the right pieces of your jigsaw so you feel the benefit of wise food choices!
Here’s what my happy clients say:
"I saw a few people before visiting Jane and none of them have come close to the expert guidance she has provided. I came to her with faulty digestion and she has helped to get rid of my symptoms enabling me to have a much better way of life. Thank you Jane for changing my life. Dan Stassinos, Epsom
"I have enjoyed every meeting with Jane, from the first time, as she is so natural and friendly. It was very easy to discuss my problems with her, and she explained everything in an easy to understand way. She explained how certain foods, can cause, or ease symptoms, and the length of time which would be needed to sort things out. We discussed various recipes, and I was given several, some very nice ones, to help me enjoy eating again. She also gave me easy to follow handouts, which were very helpful. She was in contact with my GP, and recommended other health-practitioners, which she thought might help my case. It was very useful and interesting with the 20 minute check-ins, between appointments, to discuss and ask questions, as if you were talking to an old friend. She has taught me a lot, and I am sure I will forever be a healthier person, because of Jane, it has been a very positive experience". Brit, Great Bookham
“Having suffered issues with digestion for many years, I was relieved to find Jane who I felt comfortable discussing my diet and lifestyle with. We agreed practical and realistic goals, suitable for my hectic lifestyle and as a result I have more energy and feel far healthier. I highly recommend Jane for nutritional advice”.Ian, Crawley
“Jane's dietary advice for the support of a serious illness is excellent, as she bases all her recommendations on gold standard research. Much of her cutting-edge guidance is now reflected in the health sections of the national press. Jane is very personable and tailors her dietary interventions to the client's personal needs.” Claire, Shamley Green
“The information and guidance delivered in a really easy to understand way. So glad I came.” Jo, London
“I found that Jane explained how the science of it worked and she helped me to understand what she was talking about. And she made me feel like I could change things. And she made me feel good about myself. She is 100% amazing!” Jessica, aged 12, Richmond
“Jane’s approach was kind and reassuring. She was patient with me as I found it challenging to make changes stick and needed lots of motivation. I do feel that her advice has been of great benefit to me and will form the basis of my new improved lifestyle”. Sharon, Guildford
