About me

February is the month of love, is the time to love and nourish your body?

Do you suffer from unwanted gut issues such as pain and bloating?
Do you find your blood sugar difficult to control? 
Do you struggle to lose weight/gain weight?
Do you suffer from being tired, low energy or fatigue?
Do you need some help with sports nutrition?

What is on offer for you...  Personalised Nutrition with dietary & lifestyle advice, clear action steps, recipes, meal plans, supplement recommendations, health testing recommendations and a kind and compassionate ear.  

Sessions are Face-to-face in my consultation room (Wakefield) or over Zoom.  You can book a FREE 15 minute Zoom session here. Or if you prefer to discuss over email first please contact me here.

I'm here to help support, educate and motivate you to optimise your health and address health-related issues.  I want to jump-start your journey to feeling better and make you the investigator and champion of your own health.

Together we will find the smallest, but most powerful dietary changes to start your journey. My clients find that when they improve one thing, other things improve that they didn’t expect, like more energy or better sleep.  I work with individuals and couples to guide them through the healthy eating minefield.  I also coach on the NHS NDPP with Liva Healthcare.

Are you ever confused about all the information out there and find it difficult to know where to start?  I am here to guide you through healthy eating and help you discover delicious food that you will love.  I have a special interest in gut-related symptoms because this is often the root cause of many other health issues. My passion is the Microbiome (gut health), because recent research is clearly showing that gut health impacts blood sugar regulation, many types of pain, mental health, gut symptoms… the list grows every year.

Further information

What to expect from the sessions….

My focus is to give you personalised support to empower you to make meaningful, lasting changes for better health.  Before the first session you will be given assessment forms to fill in, these are about your current health and lifestyle.  In the first session, I take the time to listen to your health story and health & diet goals.  We look at practical changes that you can start making right now, today, to get you started on your journey.  Each week we talk about what works for you and what doesn’t so we can keep you on track for your health goals.  My aim is to get you from where you are now to where you want to be with sustainable changes that really work.

Here are some of the lovely things my clients have said.....

Stomach Pain and Bloating 
The weight has remained off, in fact I am sub-12 stone now, about 11st12lbs. Considering I was 13st 5 lbs when we started this journey I am delighted. I am running 3 times a week (about 7-9kms, 5.30 min/kms) so have probably never felt fitter!  I am rarely bloated now, whilst my stomach pain was regularly at a 7 or an 8 I never go above a 3 so it is very moderate compared to how it used to be.  So, all in all, about 9 months on from when we met I remain delighted of my progress!! 😊

Healthy Eating guidance
After seeing Katie throughout 2022 I’d have no hesitation in recommending her. My goal was not only to address what I suspected were food related health issues but more importantly to grow my knowledge of nutrition and understand ‘why’ the changes to my diet and lifestyle were necessary. Katie has done just that. Rather than simply prescribing foods to eat, she’s helped me understand why certain foods are good (or not so good) and so enabled me to make more informed decisions of my own. Throughout the process, she’s been warm, supportive but also kept me on track and challenged some of my choices….which has been hugely important. Needless to say the food relates health issues I had to start with have now been resolved but I’ll continue to work with Katie as I now see her work as invaluable to my overall future health and wellbeing.

Painful Joints
A very informative and understanding person. Who put me at ease with my concerns and provided excellent advice.  Highly recommended.

Gut Health and Immune Health
One of the best things I have done was speaking to Katie. Research has shown how important gut health is to our overall wellbeing and she was so informative and helped set out a plan for me (and my family) Right now more than ever do we need good health for our immune system! I couldn’t have navigated this without her.

Weight Management
Me and my teenage daughter have been working with Katie for over six months now. She has been a total inspiration and the results have been amazing. She has totally inspired me and my daughter to make healthy nutritious decisions. We have so much more energy and zest for life.
