About me

Founder of So Nutrition, I specialise in supporting individuals through all stages of life. 

My clinical experience has equipped me to assist men, women, and teenagers in constructing impactful nutrition plans aimed at reducing chronic condition symptoms, sustaining energy levels and minimising injuries during sports and exercise.

In recent case studies, I've provided essential support to clients facing challenges of severe stress, metabolism issues, cholesterol imbalances, energy depletion, gut health issues and various inflammatory conditions. Together, goals with clients were set and I have offered practical and sustainable methods for achieving and maintaining those goals.

Many of the individuals I work with are wanting to improve energy levels and feel better. I see a lot of exhausted people who don't know where to start with addressing the crucial role of blood sugar levels and hormone balance. 

If you're looking for a nutritional therapist to support your health, whatever your issues, I would love to hear from you. I am a great listener and will investigate your symptoms and history to get to the root cause of your issues.

In my nutrition packages, I offer:

  • Nutrition education and health coaching aimed at fostering positive changes.
  • A comprehensive analysis of your current food, drink, and lifestyle choices.
  • A thorough examination of your medical history and health questionnaire to understand you and your symptoms better.
  • A personalised nutrition plan tailored to your specific needs and aspirations.
  • Guidance on suitable exercise routines and lifestyle adjustments.
  • Regular appointments to monitor your progress and provide support as you make positive changes.
  • Suggestions for tests and supplements to aid your progress, if necessary.
  • Interpretation of blood, stool, gut or other supportive health tests.
  • A 10% discount on appropriate supplements that are carefully selected to complement your plan.
  • Additional resources, recipes, and support as needed.
  • Access to a members-only area of my website where your unique log-in gets you your plans, documents, test results, and recipes or information sheets.

During the free consultation, I'll discuss your needs and determine whether a one-off, three, or six-month program would be best to help you achieve your health goals.

From day one, I want to empower you to feel confident about making changes that are impactful. Small gains are the only way to attain long-lasting change, I want you to focus on making achievable progress and informed choices.

My strength lies in my ability to listen, empathise, and connect the dots.

Training, qualifications & experience

A graduate in nutritional therapy with an emphasis on nutrition and lifestyle support for optimal health.

In 2008 I set up a successful catering business where I became passionate about the principles of healthy eating and cooking from fresh. It was no fancy restaurant but a daytime canteen, serving fresh salads, homemade soups, a dish of the day and a range of sandwiches on homemade bread with responsibly sourced fillings.

I noticed many years ago that the food I ate had a big impact on my mood and my energy levels, and I would often have a big energy crash around 4 pm. It was during these years that I became fascinated with the latest fad diets, giving everything a go to loose the weight gained from picking at the kids leftovers and then eating big meals in the evening. I didn't understand what worked for other people didn't work for me.

In 2020, I decided to study nutrition therapy, I passed a science access course and went on to become a registered nutritional therapy practitioner, and am in the process of researching my dissertation for my MSc. I truly believe I have found my passion. Each client is unique and I make it my goal to dig deep and find the real root of whatever it is that is causing their symptoms.

I do know how hard it is to find time for yourself when you work or care for others full-time. Therefore, I will always try to find time for you.

Further information

To provide you with the best care, the process starts with a straightforward nutrition questionnaire to gather information about your health and personal goals.

My approach typically involves a series of consultations to achieve maximum results:

The Initial Consultation (approximately 60 minutes): During this session, we'll delve into your aspirations, current diet and lifestyle, medical history, including any family health trends, and previous test results. By the end of this consultation, you will receive a personalised nutrition plan, guidance on beneficial nutritional tests, and a supplement program if deemed necessary.

Follow-up Consultation (up to one hour): In this meeting, we'll assess your progress, discuss and explain any test results, update your nutrition and supplement plan, and establish new goals for your ongoing health journey.

Further Follow-up Consultations (up to 60 minutes): These sessions will be scheduled as needed to ensure continuous support and monitor your progress, ensuring you have the guidance you require as you work towards your health goals.

My aim is to provide you with comprehensive and ongoing care, so you always feel fully supported throughout your health and wellness journey.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I have access to a fully accessible meeting room in Birmingham City Centre. Alternatively, we can meet online or I could visit you within the Birmingham area.
