About me

I have always been interested in nutrition and wellbeing. I followed all of the latest "eat well" trends which were supposedly meant to "optimise my health". The wealth of information and opinions were overwhelming, confusing and certainly not evidence-based. So, in a determined search for the truth, I completed a Nutritional Therapy Diploma from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London. As a science graduate, I loved exploring the latest research and incorporating this into clinic to support clients in reaching their health goals.

I am now, more than ever, passionate about how simple dietary and lifestyle changes can lead to significant health benefits. I use a Functional Medicine approach to create bespoke health plans focusing on the root cause of health problems instead of simply addressing the symptoms. the truth is that, whilst I love food and the power of nutrition, diet is only one piece of the puzzle. To fully optimise health, movement, relaxation and sleep are also vital and are therefore an integral part of my practice.

My recommendations are always meaningful, achievable and rooted in the latest scientific evidence.

As well as offering one-to-one consultations, I also offer group workshops and talks. I have a background in teaching so am used to public speaking and delivering content. I can tailor workshops to your specific requirements, previous topics include: the gut-brain axis, how nutrition can support our mental health, optimising sleep, the gut microbiome and a daily healthy checklist.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
