Jane Hickey DipNT mANP mNNA rCNHC
At Jane Hickey Nutrition in Chelmsford and Purleigh I offer a holistic approach to understanding health, combined with a scientific understanding of the impact of nutrition on health. Nutritional therapy is for anyone who would like to optimise their health and wellbeing or who would like to manage chronic symptoms, through diet and lifestyle. A comprehensive case history is taken during the consultation because I recognise that your individuality must be the focus of the plan which is created for you.
After a career of many years as a teacher I retrained at the College for Naturopathic Medicine to become a registered nutritional therapist. In this role I combine an evidence based approach to create individualised plans with the skills I developed in education to apply a coaching model, supporting my clients to make changes in 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.
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.
