At Jane Hickey Nutrition in Chelmsford and Purleigh I welcome anyone who would like to optimise physical and mental health and wellbeing through diet and lifestyle. Nutritional therapy offers particular benefits for those who are managing chronic symptoms, through supporting changes to diet and lifestyle. Your individuality is the focus of the plan which I create for you, based on a personalised assessment which combines the details of the comprehensive case history taken at your initial consultation with a scientific understanding of the impact of nutrition on health.
After many years as a teacher, I retrained at the College for Naturopathic Medicine to become a registered nutritional therapist. Combining a scientific evidence based approach with my skills in coaching, I create individualised plans to support my clients to make changes to diet and lifestyle. Diet and lifestyle habits are not changed overnight and I promote a step by step approach to help establish the long term changes which are supportive of your health. I have a particular interest in women's health, metabolic and endocrine health, mental health and pre-conception wellbeing (men and women).
Get in touch with me by phone or email to set up an initial free 15 minute phone call. We can have a discussion about the nutritional therapy support I offer, so that you can decide whether you would like to book a consultation.
