Jenny Conway (Dip ION, mBANT, mCNHC, BSc OT)

About me

  • Do you have symptoms or a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease or do you struggle with long-term fatigue?
  • Are you finding it difficult to sleep, manage related gut health concerns, your weight, cognitive function, or symptoms of exhaustion, hormonal or blood sugar imbalance?
  • When did you last feel 100%?

My name is Jenny Conway and I am a registered, fully qualified Nutritional Therapist. I provide expert, specialised dietary and lifestyle support to clients with a variety of autoimmune diseases or those with long-term fatigue. Advice is tailor-made to address the root cause of your condition and symptoms, meet your health goals and empower you to achieve optimum health and well-being naturally.

Having struggled to manage my own health for over 20 years, I introduced various dietary and lifestyle changes and was able to successfully restore my body to a state of wellness. I have seen incredible changes in my own health and in the health of my clients and would love to do the same for you.

Using evidence-based, scientific research, I work with you as your health partner: to listen, understand, answer your questions and explain how your diet, lifestyle and environmental factors are affecting your health. I aim to unravel the root cause of your symptoms, many of which may seem unrelated and anecdotal. We will then work closely together, to develop a Nutritional and Lifestyle programme that is tailor-made to meet your health goals, personal circumstances and food preferences. Your programme is specifically designed to empower you to achieve optimum health and well-being.

Every meal is an opportunity to heal. Making small changes to your diet and lifestyle can lead to profound changes in your health, vitality and energy: how you look, think and feel.

What is Nutritional Therapy and how can I help you?

Nutritional Therapy is a complementary therapy that uses evidence-based, scientific research to explain how your diet, lifestyle, genetics and environmental factors are affecting your health. This knowledge can help unravel the root cause of your symptoms and explain the dietary and lifestyle changes that are needed to support your body’s ability to repair naturally.

I aim to demystify advice currently found in the media, and work closely with you to develop a bespoke Nutritional and Lifestyle programme.  Using a wide variety of delicious food choices, your programme is specifically designed to address the root cause of your symptoms, improve your body's ability to repair and empower you to reach your health goals and achieve optimum health and well-being naturally.  I use a functional medicine approach and make use of a range of diagnostic tests, where appropriate.

Because Nutritional Therapy is a complementary therapy, it works well alongside conventional medicine. It is therefore relevant to individuals with a wide range of health conditions, as well as those looking for general support to enhance their health and well-being.

What can I expect to happen in a consultation?

As a Registered Nutritional Therapist, I will:

  • Assess your health, including your medical and family history;
  • Ask you about your symptoms and how they have changed;
  • Look at your diet and lifestyle and assess your nutritional status;
  • Evaluate your current medication and any nutrient interactions, if applicable;
  • Recommend GP and private functional testing and provide interpretation, where appropriate.

I use my knowledge of nutrition, food, nutrients, environmental and lifestyle factors to explain to you the root cause of your symptoms. I will then work with you to devise a personalised Nutritional and Lifestyle programme. Your programme is tailor made to address the root cause of your symptoms, introducing manageable changes to help you improve your body’s ability to repair and empower you to reach your health goals and achieve optimum vitality and well-being naturally.This may include providing:

  • Relevant dietary and lifestyle recommendations and advice;
  • Practical recipes, meal plans, a cupboard sort and shopping advice;
  • Functional tests and supplement recommendations and guidance;
  • The provision of relevant worksheets and handouts.

Every individual seen is unique and any advice provided is tailor-made to address your health concerns, dietary and lifestyle preferences, budget & needs. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Your programme is reviewed and adjusted during follow-up consultations to support you on your journey to optimal health.
