I'm Karen Geary, founder of Amplify Nutritional Therapy. I help leaders, entrepreneurs and change makers who frequently sacrifice their own health for work to become masters of their own well being. I help people identify the root cause of their health problems in order to take back control of their lives.
My mission is to provide personalised nutrition support combined with my expertise as a leadership performance and motivational coach to help you feel great so you can do great things.
I specialise in optimising digestion, hormone balance, immunity, energy and weight management. I work primarily on line, but also in London and Dorset. I use a functional medicine approach and utilise a range of diagnostic testing where appropriate.
I offer a free initial discussion so you can see if I am the right person to help you.
As a BANT Registered Nutritionist®, I also undertake corporate work with leadership teams. If you are part of a senior leadership team that is serious about leveraging health and wellness to drive better performance, I deliver presentations, workshops and consulting on a wide range of nutrition, lifestyle and well being topics tailored uniquely around the challenges of executive life.

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.
My fees are structured as a package as I coach and support for sustainable change. My packages start at £500 and are structured so you can pick and choose what suits you and what best works with your schedule. I also have a subscription model, beginning at £100 a month which is a health coaching only arrangement.
Packages always include an initial 90 minute consultation, followed by shorter follow up consultations (little and often) by Zoom. This is the process:
*Complementary 15 minute consultation
*Health questionnaire and food diary
*Detailed 90 minute initial consultation
*Functional testing and diagnostics (not always needed)
*Personalised nutrition and lifestyle protocol
*Targeted supplement schedule
*Follow up sessions
Functional tests if recommended, are charged in addition to consultation fees. I also provide a meal planning service at an additional cost for those who would like closer one to one support.
Subscriptions. This is for people who want to know how to eat better and would like some motivation. You get regular motivational check in calls from me and the use of my clinic app where you can post what you eat and I can give feedback. This is £100 a month, cancel anytime after three months.
I’m a former C-Suite executive with a 25+ year track record of leadership in the global technology sector based in Europe and the US. I have seen first hand how taking your health for granted when under sustained pressure, travelling incessantly or working across time zones can take a personal heavy toll. I am delighted to be able to combine my love and expertise of nutritional therapy with executive coaching and mentoring in order to be able to help people achieve their wellness objectives.
