About me

I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist based in North Yorkshire and I work with clients of all ages to help them to identify changes which they can make to their diet and lifestyle in order to improve their health and sense of wellbeing.

I understand that there is a great deal of information in the media, books and health blogs which often gives conflicting advice and can cause confusion.  There is no "one size fits all" approach as we are all biochemically and genetically unique so what works for one person may not work for another.  My aim is to work alongside you to get to the root cause of your health issues and develop a personalised plan that is tailored to suit your lifestyle.

I am aware that making changes can be difficult and I offer support between consultations to help keep you motivated and on track.

My special interest is in supporting gut health although I see people with a whole range of health concerns.

As well as one-to-one consultations, I deliver talks and workshops to various groups including school groups.

For more detailed information about the services I offer please have a look at my website www.karenbrooks.co.uk

If you are interested in booking a consultation or wish to discuss how nutritional therapy could benefit you please  contact me to arrange a free 15 minute chat.

Training, qualifications & experience

I received my Post Graduate Diploma  in Nutrition Science and Practice from the renowned Northern College of Acupuncture in York - this included many hours of clinical practice.

I am registered with the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), practising within the strict BANT Code of Ethics and Practice.

Fees

Consultations focus on addressing the root cause of your health concerns and not just covering up the symptoms.

During consultations we will:

  • Discuss your main health aims
  • Discuss your current health concerns and health history
  • Consider your dietary intake and lifestyle
  • Agree on an action plan that is personalised to meet your needs
  • Agree tools and resources to support your aims

In further consultations, we will review progress, make any necessary adjustments to the plan and continue the search for root causes.

Consultation fees include research as appropriate, preparation of a personalised action plan and coaching and support between consultations.

I have a "food first" approach. However, sometimes nutritional supplements can be helpful to provide additional support and recommendations will be made where appropriate.

Sometimes laboratory testing is recommended to provide further information which helps to identify the root cause of health issues. Many of these tests can be done by you at home or are available by your G.P.

Consultation Fees

Health Plans and Consultations vary in length and price and these are detailed on my website at www.karenbrooks.co.uk  Please contact me to arrange a FREE phone call to discuss your requirements.
