I am a qualified and accredited Nutritional Therapist (dipNT, mBANT, rCNHC) based in Notting Hill, London. I hold consultations in and around central London. If you live further away, then I'm happy to skype.
I am passionate about educating people about the foundations of healthy eating and how to make the changes needed to reach optimum health. Every single one of us is unique, so how we process food and absorb it (processed by our metabolism) varies and our needs for different nutrients are disparate depending on our genetics, environment and health. Nutritional Therapy helps us to understand the differences between healthy food; containing molecules that are necessary, purposeful and designed to support life, promote wellbeing and optimal health, and unhealthy food. This enables you to use the entire arsenal of healthy food to your advantage through my guidance.
Training, qualifications & experience
I aim to support each person on their individual journey to a healthier, well-balanced life. This encompasses hormonal imbalance (female & male health issues), blood sugar control & energy conversion, digestive and absorption imbalances as well as liver detoxification, stress management and nutrition for pregnancy and new mothers, to name but a few. This starts with education and knowledge. Once someone feels they know enough about something, they feel empowered to make the right decisions.
