Kate Black Dip ION, mBANT, CNHC
As founder of Bespoke Nutritional Therapy, I am a qualified and registered Nutritional Therapist working at the brand new Body Mechanix Clinic in Central Harpenden, Hertfordshire.
I know what it's like to not have time for yourself and your own health - as an ex-dancer, ex-TV producer/director, and mother of two young girls, I understand life gets busy. I aim to inform, inspire and encourage busy, hard-working parents to reboot and recharge their health, using nutrition and functional/lifestyle medicine.
My evidence based, personalised, realistic and achievable plans could be the change you're looking for. I try to uncover the root cause of any issue and listen to all your concerns so changes are positive, specific and right for you. I provide 1-2-1 consultations, health-coaching, workshops and online programmes to help clients gain vitality, feel lighter and brighter so they can take back control of their lives.
Are you a busy parent who works hard and plays hard? Are you driven by success, juggling family and work responsibilities so you have no time to consider your own health? You may be ‘burnt out’ and exhausted, overweight, overwhelmed, irritable and unable to cope. You may have a chronic condition. Sleep may not be restoring you, and you reach for caffeine, alcohol and sugar to get you through. If this sounds like you, your body could be under a lot of stress both emotionally and physically heading towards undesirable health outcomes. Do you want a reset, refresh and a recharge to get you back on track?
I can help you - In an increasingly health conscious world the power of food to re-balance is growing. Here at Bespoke Nutritional Therapy I want you to feel strong again, to feel able to reach your peak performance. Think vitality and boundless energy and a healthy weight. Imagine waking up with mental clarity ready to tackle anything. I’m here and waiting to empower you to take control of your health and well-being, to restore and rebalance so you can be the best ‘YOU’ ever.
Whatever your concern, contact me today for a FREE 15 consultation call to find out how I can help you make the changes you need, so you can live life to the full.

As an ex-dancer and later a busy TV Producer/Director I was on the classic “grab and go’’ diet, fueling my body with whatever I could find, eating out and ‘drinking’ far too much. Little did I know that these choices played havoc with my health. I was constantly exhausted and run down with colds, cold sores, bad skin, and weight gain. Having children was my wake up call. I became acutely aware of what we ate and made sure everything was clean, natural, organic and fresh. I began to plan and shop efficiently, taught myself to cook nutrient dense food, exercised regularly and lost weight. I glowed, had infinite energy and felt the best ‘ME’ ever.
This new found health spurred me into studying at the prestigious Institute for Optimal Nutrition (ION) and I’m now passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience to empower you to feel the best ‘YOU’ ever.

“She is clearly passionate about nutrition and I’d recommend her if you want to address the cause rather than the symptoms” Scott, Harpenden
"I could not thank her enough for the improvement she has made to my life. I can thoroughly recommend her to anyone.” Mary, Northallerton
"It has been a fantastic experience for me and has enabled me to introduce a healthier more balanced diet for myself and the family, with some great ideas of easy healthy recipes. Many thanks Kate for my very positive first introduction to a healthier eating lifestyle. I have very much enjoyed the challenge" Sue, Harpenden
Workshops and Wellness days:
I am also available for corporate coaching and wellness days, workshops and talks, shopping, and cupboard detox. I run private health programmes on Facebook (Bespoke Nutritional Therapy) 'Feel Great in Five Weeks'.
"Feel Great in Five Weeks, is a fantastic programme for anyone looking to increase their energy levels and feel healthier. Kate makes the programme very easy to follow and although challenging at times, it is well worth it. I have come away from the programme with lots of positive changes to my diet that I have adopted permanently and the gradual nature of the programme makes it much easier to stick to. I was also introduced to lots of healthy foods that I would never have chosen before which has been great, not just for me but also for the rest of my family. I highly recommend Kate and the programme and I am very glad that I took part." Anna, Harpenden
Coming soon - 'Quit Sugar Quick' 'Time for You' and 'Feel lighter in 20'.
