I call my practice 'Enjoy Nutrition' because I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy their food, no matter what their dietary needs. I also do not believe in 'good' or 'bad' food, only inappropriate choices around food. I help people to find new ways of managing what they eat so that they can feel well and enjoy their food.
I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist working from my own small office in the centre of Harrogate. I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the University of Middlesex. I am trained to conduct careful research using what is called the 'evidence base'. This is the collective term for the scientific studies and trials performed on drugs, supplements and other interventions such as diets, in order to assess their reliability and effectiveness for different health problems. I do extensive research for every client based on their unique health history and current concerns. Any advice I give is informed by this evidence base.
Above all, I want my clients to feel listened to and that their needs and preferences have been taken into account. I aspire for them to enjoy a healthier, happier life through empowering and inspiring them towards more delicious and rewarding decisions about food and lifestyle.
I see clients for a minimum total of 4 hours which is usually split between 3 and 5 appointments. The first consultation is for information-gathering, the second is to deliver results of researches and discuss how you want to proceed, and further meetings are for following up and planning further progress towards your goals.
I am a trained Nutrigenomics Practitioner and for particularly complex cases I can use gene testing to investigate more deeply, at a biochemical level, what may be at the root of or driving a client’s health concerns. From this, a more targeted and specific approach can be identified as a starting point for action.

My office is in central Harrogate within 5 minutes walk of the bus and train station. The number 36 bus to Ripon from Leeds stops right outside the office.
There is on-street parking outside the office, with good availability of spaces, but the time limit is one and a half hours.
There is a multi-storey car park round the corner on Tower Street, as well as a small outdoor car park there too. Both are reasonably priced and within 5 minutes walk of the office and there are usually spaces in both.
You can also park at Waitrose, 2 minutes away, for free for 2 hours
If you like to park and stride, try the top of Cold Bath Road or Tewit Well Road and walk across the Stray in both cases. These are both about 10 minutes away.
