About me

My name is Jane Hickey and I am based in Chelmsford and Purleigh, also offering consultations on zoom. After a career as a teacher, I retrained at the College for Naturopathic Medicine to become a registered nutritional therapist.

Your story is the focus of my assessment of your acne, so that I create a plan to  reflect your priorities. With my specialist interest in skin health and understanding of acne as a multifactorial inflammatory condition, my assessment identifies the drivers of acne in the interacting systems of your body and in the aspects of your diet and lifestyle. By finding the root causes, these can be addressed and removed. Using my skills in coaching, I am able to support you to make the changes to support your body on the outside, with skin care routines, and on the inside, with food choices, to clear your acne. Habits are not changed overnight and I promote a step by step approach to help you to introduce and establish the changes for the wellbeing of your skin. 

Do you need support to work out the food you should be eating to support your skin health?

I offer:

  • 1:1 consultations
  • personalised plans
  • recipes
  • lifestyle advice
  • supplement recommendations
  • coaching support
  • functional testing (for an extra cost)
  • email and phone support

Get in touch with me by phone or email to set up an initial free 15 minute phone call. to discuss your needs and the support I can offer.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.
