BSc PGDip MBANT CNHC

About me

My passion is to try to help people who feel forgotten or left behind in dealing with a chronic health issue.

If something has become chronic or persistent then the immune system is not functioning appropriately.  My primary target is always to support the immune system with food and supplements so that it may better deal with the chronic issue and with future health challenges.

I work to support the immune system in the context of many different health issues.  If you would like to nurture your immune system so that it can do its job of protecting you, then I would love to work with you to help bring you to better current and future health.

Nutrition topics

Information about health conditions (*)

Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.

Fees

From £95.00 to £795.00
Free initial telephone or online session

Additional information

There are few quick fixes with nutrition: meaningful change takes time and I like to be able to support you fully during that time.  This is why I prefer for us to work together for several months.  This gives us time to introduce things slowly and make adjustments as we go along.  There are further support packages available to allow you to continue receiving care and advice after the initial work is done.  

However, I realise that not everyone can afford to outlay £795 in one go, so this fee can be split into two payments over two months.  Or:

If this is still more than you can manage to pay, I have an hourly rate of £95 for simpler consultations, and I do offer three hours of consultation time plus background work for £350.  This is split into 90mins/60mins/30mins sessions over six weeks.
