Having experienced a number of health issues myself, which orthodox medicine failed to resolve, I began a journey of discovery. This journey led me to the use of diet, supplementation and lifestyle alterations as a way of improving my health and then finally to becoming a nutritional therapist - with the aim of helping others.
After completing all three levels of study with the Natural Healthcare College I am now a fully qualified Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist. I am also a fully insured member of the Naturopathic Nutrition Association (NNA).
As a mother of two, I have also been working in the corporate sector for over 20 years and this has given me a good understanding of how shift work, stress, work pressure together with juggling a career and home life can really affect one's health and vitality.
Metabolically every person is different and unfortunately the 'one size fits all' approach to a healthy diet simply won't satisfy each person's individual needs. Factors such as stress, exercising, bearing children, ageing, injuries and even our environment can influence our nutritional requirements - inappropriate diet and other lifestyle factors may leave you weakened or run down.
Using the principles of naturopathic nutritional therapy, I can offer you advice on how to achieve a more nutritious diet – exclusive to your particular requirements. Together we can discuss your particular situation, health and wellness issues and I will help you understand what diet and lifestyle factors may be contributing to or exacerbating your symptoms. With that knowledge I will devise a plan that is suited to your individual needs. It won't be about sacrificing all your favourite treats or living off foods you despise. It will be about balance and making an informed decision about how you can support your body with the aim of leading you towards improved wellness, increased vitality and a more fulfilled and satisfying life - one that you deserve.
Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy
Unlike modern medicine which is focused on treating disease itself and suppressing symptoms; naturopathic nutritional therapy looks deeper in to the causes that underlie disease, for example poor digestion, detoxification or nutrient deficiency.
When assessing the health problems of an individual; naturopathic nutritional therapists take into account the person as a whole including their physical, mental, spiritual and emotional well-being. The aim then is to address potential imbalances using diet, lifestyle modifications and possibly supplementation to create the most favourable conditions which may stimulate the body’s innate healing ability.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
