I'm a fully qualified and insured Nutritional Therapist based in Crawley, West Sussex, RH10. I cover areas including Crawley, Horley, Salfords, Copthorne, East Grinstead and Horsham. I offer one-to-one nutrition consultations at my private practice in Crawley. Also I'm available for home visits within a 10 mile radius and phone or Skype consultations.
I became interested in nutrition after using diet to recover from my 3 year debilitating illness with C.F.S. I had visited a Naturopathic Nutritionist who did a food intolerance test with a Vega Test machine and recommended that I remove beef, cow’s dairy, yeast and sugar from my diet. She also used the machine to detect that I had Epstein Barr virus and a yeast infection. After a few weeks of changing my diet and taking the recommended supplements, I had a lot more energy. After further improving my diet I went on to make a full recovery.
As a result I am now passionate about teaching others how to use nutrition to maintain good health. I specialise in helping tired adults with M.E/C.F.S to get their energy back.
How I work
Firstly in the initial consultation I will take your medical history and current symptoms. Next I will explain the diet changes and supplements that I recommend. After the appointment I will email you a specific nutrition plan, your drug nutrient interactions and targeted supplement plan which are advised to be followed until your next appointment.
During the follow up appointments we will speak about how you are finding the plan and make any changes as necessary.
The benefits of getting nutritional advice can include:
- Increased energy
- Better absorption
- Improved digestion
- Better sleep
- Reduced joint pain
- Weight loss

“Kate was really helpful in helping me combat my fatigue, she provided me with a diet and supplement plan that was very in-depth but also easy to follow. Since doing the plan with Kate I have had a lot more energy to do the things I love. Kate was very knowledgeable and provided me with lots of helpful information. I’m very glad that I went to see Kate and I recommend her highly.”
“I feel amazing since following the plan. I have more energy and was able to do the gardening. My stomach has improved. Thank you for all that you are doing it is really working.”
“I come back to you because you are very knowledgeable. You are kind and I can tell you want to help me. Thank you for your time and seeing me at short notice. I will give your phone number out to my friends.”
“Although I haven’t been with Kate for very long, my association with her has been nothing but positive as my main problem has been with weight and also, due to being just into my 70s I have gained some really bad habits with regard to the type of food I was eating.
In my first week I lost 6 lbs. and this is only due to Kate’s knowledge and encouragement. She has suggested that I email her every week with weight results and I know that this will keep me on the straight and narrow. Kate has also sent me various tools to help me in my quest to improve my diet and for this I am really grateful to her. I would add here that I have found Kate extremely approachable and helpful; I know that I can contact her at any time and that she will be coming back to me with any advice that I may need at the time.
With regards to her knowledge, she has helped me to readjust my thinking about food. I don’t really know how this has happened so quickly but it is a great feeling and this has helped so much with my self esteem. I think the results so far speak for themselves.
Kate has achieved the best and most positive attitude in my mind which has been sadly lacking for the past 20 years. Long may it continue.”
“Thank you for all the useful information you have shared with me. I feel more confident and a lot better since I started following the weight loss meal plan. I lost over 1 stone in the first month. My breathing is better and I’m able to walk without getting out of breath. I no longer need to use my inhalers everyday. My joint pain has improved as I have lost weight. With the meal plans to follow, I feel that I can continue on this healthy diet in the long-term.”

"I’ve been a lot better with the meal plan and have lost around 6 pounds which has stayed off for a while! My swelling has massively reduced in my legs every day and my latest bloods are improved. Less albumin is leaking! Woohoo!"
