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
HOW CAN I 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: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 07495 413170 to arrange a free phone call to see if I can help
