Joanna Majithia, BA (Hons), DipION, BANT & CNHC Registered Nutritional Therapist
I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist specialising in optimising digestion, hormonal balance, immunity, energy and weight management.
I am currently conducting consultations online. I am based in Brighton and Hove, I have been in continual practice since 2003 and I have a wide range of experience and excellent track record supporting clients regain their health. I am passionate about good food and enjoying life to the full.
My approach is collaborative and empowering and I aim to work closely with you as an individual to help you achieve your goals. I use a functional medicine approach and utilise a range of diagnostic testing, where appropriate.
I offer a free initial 15-minute chat so you can see if I am the right person to help you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at The Institute for Optimum Nutrition and graduated, with distinction, in 2003 with a diploma in Nutritional Therapy.
I am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
I have 14 years of clinical experience and regularly attend training, conferences and seminars to keep abreast of the latest research and my knowledge base up-to-date.
I am also on the BANT Nutrigenomic Counsellor register, having completed additional training in nutrigenomics from a functional medicine perspective.

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.
