About me

I specialise in women's health and I absolutely love working with women.
I have worked with clients experiencing PCOS, thyroid conditions, weight gain, insulin resistance, premenstrual syndrome, chronic stress, endometriosis, fibroids, migraines, perimenopause and menopause.
As a registered nutritional practitioner, I work with clients who have different dietary requirements and preferences, however, I also specialise in vegetarian and plant-based diets.
I am also trained to look at genetic testing to further personalise my dietary recommendations and support overall health.

ABOUT NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

The food that we eat and the way we live our lives can have a profound impact on our health and wellbeing. Nutritional therapy is a complementary medicine where evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle interventions are used to support the body systems and promote good health.

Each person is unique, and rather than a “one size fits all approach”, my nutrition and lifestyle plans are tailored to your own needs and goals. I want you to feel comfortable and I ensure that our one-to-one consultations take place in a relaxed and non-judgmental atmosphere.
Our knowledge of nutrition is constantly evolving, therefore, I attend regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events, to ensure I am up-to-date with new developments within the field of nutrition and to improve my skills.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1) I offer a free, no obligation 20 minute call

2) I send you my health, diet (i.e. a 3-day food diary) and lifestyle questionnaire.

3) During our initial consultation (up to 90 minutes), we discuss your medical history, your symptoms, your diet and lifestyle. We look at at identifying the underlying causes of any imbalances. Together, we work on an achievable plan to help you reach your goals. I provide you with a written personalised plan, including handouts and recipes. I sometimes recommend GP or functional testing and supplements (not included in the cost).

4) I provide coaching calls and email support as part of my packages.

5) The (first) follow-up consultation (45 minutes) typically takes place a month later. During the follow-up, we review your health and progress. 

TESTIMONIAL:

“I highly recommend Karine’s nutritional therapy service. After a thorough consultation Karine provided a personalised health optimisation plan, meal ideas, supplement recommendations and suggested investigations to request via my GP. I made a couple of pretty significant changes to my diet on Karine’s advice and have felt the benefits very quickly. Karine has provided ongoing support and review which has really helped me along the way. I now feel I have more energy, have noticed a definite improvement in gastric symptoms and my sleep is much improved. I’ve learnt how to improve my food choices and also how to maximise the nutrients in meals and snacks. If you are looking to explore any health concerns and are interested in making positive changes to your lifestyle, then look no further than Happy Living Nutrition!” R M, London

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.
