The Elysia Therapeutic Centre
52 Bowling Green Road
I am passionate about helping people to address health concerns or sub-optimal health through nutrition, natural supplements, herbs, lifestyle advice and functional testing.
I use a functional medicine approach which considers all systems of the body and their interconnectivity and aims to address any underlying imbalances leading to you not feeling as well as you could be.
I have personally experienced many health issues myself and also experienced recovery from them through supporting myself with nutritional therapy.
I specialise in female health issues, hormone balancing, stress management and digestion. Also inflammatory issues. Although I do deal with a wide range of health concerns, so these areas are by no means exclusive.
I also offer specific programmes for weight loss and / or detoxification.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Diploma from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy. I am also Registered with the British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), as well as the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
Since graduating, I have worked in private practice and helped patients with all kinds of health issues; I have provided drop in / surgery style clinics, as well as providing advice to schools on a consultancy basis, both for stress management through nutrition for the teachers and support for students. One of the schools was a school for children with severe learning difficulties and autism, so I also gained significant experience in this area.
I have written articles for Pulsin and Functional Medicine Magazine and delivered a number of talks to help raise awareness of the importance of good nutrition and how we might tailor this to address specific health complaints.
