Do you need help with a diagnosed auto-immune condition, thyroid symptoms, hot flushes due to hormonal changes, poor digestion or tummy problems, fatigue, struggle to lose weight? Julie runs a London based clinic in Richmond, Fulham and Mayfair. Her approach is holistic and evidence based. She works with you to establish the root courses of your symptoms and ailments and uses food as medicine working on improving mineral status, digestion and vitamin uptake along with specific areas identified during the consultation.
Julie is dedicated to providing you with the right information to help you achieve your goals, she uses her expert knowledge, experience and coaching skills to motivate you to make the change needed for your success. Your zinc status and stomach acid will be assessed during your appointment using some simple in clinic tests, along with a full body composition analysis using bio-impedence scales. You goals will be clear when you leave, allowing you both to measure the improvements from your new plan.
Functional lab tests may be discussed, depending on your symptoms. Functional tests are similar to the tests your GP might carry out, such as blood tests, urine tests or stool tests. However, we do not look for pathology or disease, we look for imbalances and deficiencies or intolerance. The benefits are ten fold, and may help direct your programme and therefore results can be much faster.
What do you receive?
Following your consultation with Julie you receive a summary of what was discussed, including dietary adjustments and food ideas and a supplement programme. All of Julie's clients receive 15% discount on the supplements she may recommend.
Julie continues to study and regularly attends conferences and seminars to ensure she has the most up to date knowledge to support her busy practice.

Julie is a hugely knowledgeable Nutritional Therapist, and has changed my outlook on food in a very positive way. Having been diagnosed with P COS, she has helped me overcome a severe hormone imbalance by using food as a medicine.
After just three months of a new diet and various other lifestyle changes, I now have a complete balance in my hormones (tested by my consultant) and an even healthier lifestyle than I did in the past – amazing!!

Julie, she helped me identify a number of patterns in my diet that were having a negative effect. As a result of her considerable nutritional knowledge, particularly with respect to women, a couple of simple alterations to my diet have helped me ensure my energy levels are now more steady, I’m getting important minerals and oils that I wasn’t before and I can now make better choices to help ensure I have a nutritionally balanced diet. Julie has a personal yet professional approach and I always felt she was fully committed to supporting and helping me as much as she could, often going that extra step to research around unusual or less well understood issues. Thank you, Julie

When I first came to see Julie I had a number of problems, none of which I thought were related to each other. But after only a few sessions she’d got to the bottom of my symptoms and had devised a very flexible and holistic nutritional plan on which the results were pretty instant.
Julie concentrates on how you feel rather than just finding out what is wrong with you – it’s this modern approach to her nutrition that has made me come back to her repeatedly.
What I have learnt from her has been invaluable and had a very definite and direct impact on my wellbeing and health. I am livelier, stronger and slimmer thanks to Julie.
Helen, Graphic Designer, East London
My best advice to anyone thinking they might do something about their diet is to do it. We are what we eat, after all. Julie has been a knowledgeable, patient, concerned and motivating guide on what has been a long journey, but without doubt, the best thing I have ever done for myself. If you want to get to some of the root causes of issues that have only ever been medicated or ignored, Nutritional Therapy is an option that’s definitely worth exploring.
Melinda, Business Manager, Putney
Julie has a very thorough approach and looked at my medical history and symptoms in-depth before giving her advice. She is very reassuring and extremely knowledgable about ways in which I can use diet, supplements and lifestyle changes in order to keep my body and mind in the best condition possible.
A session with Julie is also informative and interesting with advice that really targets your particular health issue. I cannot recommend Julie highly enough.
