Kathryn Rogers DipNT mBANT
My philosophy is that a good diet is personal; one that is right for each individual. I am very keen to guide people to develop their own understanding of how they may benefit from good nutrition, and how this can lead them to a new lifestyle, rather than be tied to following a specific or named diet.
'You are what you eat’ may be a cliché but it has surely never been truer – particularly in relation to health and well-being. Life is full of individual priorities – around work, around family - even around illness - and what we choose to eat may have an enormous impact on how we cope with the pressures of everyday life.
I enjoy helping people to embark on dietary change journeys for their long-term well-being. One highly beneficial characteristic of nutritional therapy is that focusing on one area of your health-related needs often helps to address another. In other words nutritional therapy may be an effective long term strategy supporting multiple health issues simultaneously.
I hold consultations at Riverside Wellbeing in Whaley Bridge, and at a GP surgery in Hadfield, both of which are in the High Peak, Derbyshire.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist in 2013.
Diploma in Nutritional Therapy [Premier Training International July 2013]
Membership of BANT (British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy) Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council)
Licenced Brain Health Programme Nutritional Therapist (Cytoplan)
I am passionate about the value of good food and helping people add quality to their life through the enjoyment of interesting, nutritious and tasty food. Over many years I have cooked and created recipes for friends and colleagues to not only provide a positive eating experience – but also to support their well-being. My formal cookery and nutrition education started at college over thirty years ago whilst training for a career in hotel and catering management.
HND [Colchester June 1983] in Hotel, Catering and Institutional Management, included training in business management, food sciences and high class cookery
I have continued to gain experience in food preparation over the years, and have provided friends, families and party-goers with a variety of menus to satisfy a wide range of dietary needs and food desires.
I have also been working in healthcare for over twenty years at a GP practice, working with patients, general practitioners and nurses. This work has included a wide range of healthcare business process management issues such as chronic disease quality contract record keeping. During my career working in primary care I have gained an NHS qualification in Health Informatics, which relates to my knowledge in, and application to, patient records processing and business process management.
NHS IM&T Diploma [York January 2000]
Working in the primary care environment has made me very aware of the effects of long term conditions, and the care and treatment that clinicians need to provide for patients. Combining this with my knowledge, training and experience in food and cooking I am perfectly equipped to provide personalised, empathetic nutritional therapy services.
