About me

Hello, I'm Joanna, a Registered Nutritional Therapist

DipION, DIPCritcal Care, RGN, mBANT, CNHC, mIFM

I work with clients to identify and address underlying causes of health concerns. These include areas such as: gut issues, mood problems, weight concerns, skin issues etc

If you are not feeling yourself, suspect something is not right or have a particular issue worrying you - I'd love to help


I use a functional medicine approach, applying evidenced based nutrition science and physiology to individuals and their personal stories. I work with each client to identify where things have gone off track and empower them to take action to address the imbalances and reclaim their health.

              Sometimes it only takes a few small actions to make a big difference

My aim is to turn actions into habits. For me, it is a priority to help my clients enjoy their food, so wherever possible, I always aim to add in rather than remove.

I worked as a nurse in various areas including Intensive Care, then after experiencing the power of nutrition and lifestyle medicine in my own family and went on to train at The Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), where I graduated with Distinction. I now have a Nutritional Therapy practice in Oxfordshire.

Please see my website for further details, contact me via email: or call: 07495 413170 to arrange a free phone call to see if I can help

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
