About me

I specialise in nutritional programmes to support the health and wellbeing of instrumental musicians. With family members who are musicians, my focus on nutrition for musicians has developed from an awareness of the physical and mental demands of music performance and the health conditions associated with music performance. Nutrition has a key role in supporting musicians through food, supplement and lifestyle choices.

Musicians are at increased risk of a range of specific health conditions, significantly musculoskeletal conditions and mental health conditions. A naturopathic nutritional approach assesses the individual and the root causes of a condition, to support prevention and recovery.

From Ruardean in the beautiful Forest of Dean, I support my clients online. By special request I can make arrangements to see clients face to face in London. 

In addition to one to one support, I also offer talks to groups, with the option of a drop in clinic. I welcome enquiries from conservatoires, orchestras, ensembles or music groups. I have a special interest in supporting music students with education in self care and offer discounted programmes for students.

Do you need support to work out the food and lifestyle to help you improve your wellbeing and optimise your musical performance?

Do you need support to overcome a health condition associated with music performance?

I offer a free online wellbeing review to help you find out how a food, supplement and lifestyle programme can help you.

My programme includes:

  • 1:1 breakthrough consultation 
  • personalised recommendations
  • selected supplements
  • account for high quality supplements with 10% discount
  • 1:1 check in reviews
  • health and wellbeing coaching 
  • access to support and advice
  • discount for music students

Additional options for my programmes include:

  • DNALife profiles
  • FirstBeat Life monitor 
  • Functional Medicine tests

Get in touch to set up a free 45 minute online wellbeing review or discussion about your music group requirements.

I am a BANT registered Nutritional Therapist with an Advanced Certificate in Health and Wellbeing Coaching (IAFPD). I have undertaken post graduate training recognised by BANT with DNALife and am able to offer Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics support to my clients.

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.
