About me

*New Perimenopause Programme just launched*

I love what I do! I have over ten years experience consulting with clients from around the world with a variety of health conditions. In the picture I’m drinking a ‘liver flush’ drink at a health spa in Thailand, not a sugary cocktail! Saying that, my way of working is all about finding balance, connecting with the reasons behind our actions and learning how to mindfully indulge! I now enjoy seeing clients in Brighton & London and online from anywhere, and running online courses.

Are you ready to take the path to better health?
You may be looking for sustainable weight loss, balanced hormones, improved digestion, clearer skin, or you may be wishing to address a specific health issue. Maybe you struggle with low energy and less than optimum health? You've come to the right place!

What can I do for you?
I can inspire you to find your own balance, boost your energy and improve your health, helping you become more mindful of what you personally need to feel good. We’ll work together to unravel any imbalances, improve your diet and put in place new self care habits that fit comfortably with your lifestyle.

Who do I work with?
Women of all ages for hormonal balance, men and women in business who are high achievers and need to function at their best, people who wish to prevent decline with ageing, those who are feeling stressed or run down and people who wish to eat healthily, lose weight and feel more vibrant. Everyone eats, so nutritional therapy can benefit everyone!

Health programmes and services
I work with clients using programmes typically 12 weeks in length, with different options for private consultations and contact, depending on the intensity of help you need. This way of working gets results that last.

  • Bespoke health plans
    To support a wide range of conditions from weight loss to long-term chronic conditions.
  • Full support
    We’ll work at your pace to get the results you’re looking for.
  • Accountability and motivation
    You’re not alone. We’ll figure out what you need and make sure you do it!

How it works
Packages are recommended as opposed to one-off sessions because working through specific health issues and unravelling imbalances takes time. Nutritional and lifestyle medicine takes commitment and a willingness to make changes. Packages allow you to be supported and coached throughout the process rather than leaving you to go it alone. You'll be sent a nutrition questionnaire and food diary to be filled in before your first consultation.

What you get:

  • Initial 90 minute consultation (can be online)
  • Follow-up appointments 45 minutes (can be online)
  • 15 minute telephone check-ins (frequency dependant on package you choose)
  • Detailed written nutritional treatment plan, including lifestyle and supplement recommendations
  • Email support
  • 12 weeks of support (recommended for complex health issues)
  • Functional testing where appropriate (additional cost)

We can discuss your needs in detail during your free telephone call. Everyone is different, so I'll be happy to hear from you to see how I can help you.

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.

Further information

A little bit more about me - I lived in Thailand for three years as the executive health consultant in a detox and wellness retreat, then moved to Berlin where I ran detox workshops, before giving birth to my beautiful daughter in the Spring of 2012. I enjoyed a healthy and vibrant pregnancy and a non-medicated natural water birth, thanks to the wisdom of yoga and meditation and by following a healthy lifestyle. I now live in Brighton where I love dining out, being by the sea, enjoying quality time with my family and friends and being a conscious mama. For me, a healthy lifestyle is all about finding balance.

Location - Central Hove, a short walk from Hove train station. Numerous buses stop just outside the clinic. I also consult via Skype for clients who are not in Brighton and Hove. I also consult from Clapham Therapy Rooms for those in London.

At Clapham Junction station there is parking available with The Therapy rooms are also located approximately 20-30 minutes walk to either Clapham Common underground station or Wandsworth Common Overground.


"I came to see Jo with an array of symptoms, especially peri-menopausal related issues. Through committing to her Gold package I was able to make the nutrition and lifestyle changes I needed whilst being coached and guided by Jo all the way. I am now feeling in control of my symptoms, weight and have gained a zest for life again!" - Jane, Brighton.

"I am forever grateful to Jo for helping me get through a period of stress in my life. I was running on empty working all hours under the sun. She ran adrenal testing on me and it transpired that my adrenal function was below par. With the help of Jo's advice I completely changed my diet, took supplements to support my body's stress response and learnt to deeply relax. I signed up for Jo's Platinum package knowing that I needed a superior level of support to get my health back on track. Jo even taught me meditation and breathing techniques. I now have a great work/life balance and am feeling wonderful. Thank you Jo!" - John, Ditchling.

"Jo has a lovely warm manner and a way of making a person feel totally at ease and very comfortable discussing details of one's health" - Fiona, Brighton.

"Jo helped me to increase my fertility as my partner & I had been trying for a baby for a couple of years. The first consultation was very thorough and she pin-pointed some issues that we hadn't considered. We came to Jo as a last resort, but now we realise that nutrition and lifestyle medicine plays a first line role in any health issue. We underwent a wonderful weekend detox/pamper where we spent quality time looking after ourselves under Jo's instruction. She then helped our bodily systems work efficiently by putting us on targeted supplements for our individual health complaints. After investing in Jo's Gold package we were delighted with the results... I'm now pregnant and we are healthier than we've ever been!" - Joy, Brighton.

"Jo is an extremely knowledgeable and caring person and she is the best nutritionist I have ever seen. I was suffering from intense and frequent sugar cravings but after  following her advice I seem to have that under control. She is an absolute mine of information and she has given me many tips and recipes that make my diet so much better. She told me things which I had never known before and thanks to her I am having an allergy test as well as a candid-a and parasite test done in order to eliminate or confirm various possible causes of my many symptoms.  I still have a long way to go but thanks to Jo I am on the path to better nutrition. I am waiting for her to return to Brighton so that I can see her. My daughter wants to see her as well." - Sushila, London.

"Through the efforts of Jo’s nutritional tips, my energy levels have increased, and my blood sugar levels have decreased – and best of all I’m enjoying eating again without gaining weight! I have lost 20 pounds and have eliminated the need for my Prozac! I am very pleased with my new outlook on eating healthily with choices. I don't gain weight! And never feel hungry, and don't crave the things I used to such as chips and chocolate, coffee and wine." - Beverly, Singapore.
