About me

Hello! I am Karine, a Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and I specialise in Women’s Health.

My clients come to me because they want to support their energy levels, their mood and brain fog. They may also want to optimise their digestion. Often they feel their hormones impact their symptoms. 

They know that working on diet and lifestyle may benefit their health, but they feel overwhelmed by the amount of information online and they want individual guidance. They may also be interested in testing to rule out deficiencies and other issues that could be impacting their symptoms or health goals.

I have a special interest in hormonal health, thyroid health, pre-conception & pregnancy and midlife. I also work with neurodivergent clients.

I trained for 4 years in Nutrition at the renowned Institute of Optimum Nutrition and I regularly attend CPD training in the field of hormone health and neurodiversity. 
I completed a course developed by Dr Louise Newson and her team. It is an education programme for healthcare professionals who would like to formalise and accredit their learning and consulting skills around the area of midlife transition.
I am also a member of a mentorship group for registered nutrition practitioners who specialise in neurodiversity and disordered eating (NEDDE).

I work with clients who have different dietary requirements and preferences, however, I also specialise in vegetarian and vegan diets. I completed the first university-based course on plant-based nutrition in the UK, with the University of Winchester.

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.

How does it work?

  1. I offer you 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 (90 minutes), we discuss your medical history, your symptoms, your diet and lifestyle. We look 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 private testing and supplements (not included in the cost).
  4. Follow-up consultations (30 minutes). During the follow-ups, we review your health, test results (if applicable) 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

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.
