Jill Barber DipION MBANT CNHC
Jill has a passion for food and uses nutrition to give you the power to change your life for the positive. Optimising your health and increasing your potential.
In clinic, Jill uses Nutritional Therapy as an individual centred approach to healthcare that uses assessment and intervention using nutritional, lifestyle and health sciences.
In a typical nutritional therapy consultation, Jill will explore the individual’s general health, family history, dietary habits, and lifestyle. In doing so, she may suggest specific functional tests. Jill will then devise a dietary and lifestyle plan suitable for the individual. This may include dietary adjustments, suggestions for dietary support, lifestyle changes and food or botanical supplement recommendations.
As a qualified nutritional therapist, Jill assesses clients on an individual basis and she support clients through the different stages to achieve a new and healthier approach to body composition and well-being.

I was tired of crash diets, of temporarily losing weight and then putting it back on at the same speed. For once I wanted to lose weight in a healthy and balanced way. Although I had read a lot about nutrition, Jill helped me put things into perspective with a professional eye. She gave me a pragmatic approach to eating less and maintaining a more balanced diet, she provided a whole range of delicious recipes in case I ran out of ideas… and it worked! I started losing weight slowly but constantly, and feeling a lot better! I really recommend Jill, she is great!
When training for a marathon earlier this year I had no real idea about what I should eat to support my extra training. Jill was able to give me good advice based on my individual requirements, which I know helped me enormously. This was especially the case with carbohydrate intake and what to eat and drink just before the marathon.

I warmly recommend Jill Barber as a nutritionist.
She has a pleasant and intelligent personality.
She gives cogent and well reasoned advice and makes suggestions for changes to one’s diet that are both practical and realistic and not too ambitious. In consequence one is able to make changes to one’s daily diet and eating habits that are effective and long lasting.
Thanks to her advice I have changed my diet and in consequence feel healthier and less stressed, which were my main reasons for consulting her.
