About me

Would you like to feel better physically and mentally? Whether you're struggling with fatigue, poor digestion, hormone imbalances, or maybe a diagnosis of autoimmunity, blood sugar imbalance or cardiovascular disease, then I am here to support you. Get in touch for your complimentary 15 minute phone call in which we can talk about your health and the ways in which nutritional therapy could help you.

I am passionate about good food, and using it to help people move towards optimal health! Being seriously ill myself was the wake-up call I needed to change my own diet and lifestyle, so I fully understand the challenges that come with making change and I love to guide and support clients through that process.

My goal is to find out what your health goals are and to work with you to achieve them using the food that you eat. I work using the functional medicine model, which involves finding and addressing the root causes of ill health, rather than just dealing with symptoms. This may involve testing if appropriate to determine underlying causes of ill health. I have special interests in autoimmunity, women’s health, digestion and blood sugar imbalances.

Every client will receive a personalised nutrition plan following their consultation, tailored to his or her individual needs, together with recipe ideas and practical tips for making changes. You will also receive support in between consultations to help keep you motivated and on track.

Every day, the choices we make about what to eat affect whether our bodies move further out of balance or towards optimal health. I want to guide you to the choices that will allow you to enjoy the vibrant good health that you deserve!

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

You will get more benefit from nutritional therapy if we work together for a period of time. I offer programmes to help with this: please see http://www.empowerednutrition.org.uk/how-i-can-help/programmes-and-prices/

If supplements or testing are required then these are at a additional cost.

My Diet & Lifestyle MoT is available for £59 for those without a particular health condition who would like a review of their current diet and daily routine and simple but targeted changes to optimise health and wellbeing.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
