About me

I'm based in East Lothian and conduct your consultation online as a result of Covid. However once restrictions allow I will be available for 1-to-1 consultations in person if that's preferred, but will also continue to work online.

My approach?

You're unique.  You and your body have been together forever, and only you know what you've been through.  From past trauma in your younger years, to what you had for breakfast this morning.  It all matters.  It's all you.  The impact life has had on you is also unique.  That's the approach I take.

Realistic and tailored, your session is detailed, it can be exhausting, sometimes emotional, but overall there to support longterm changes.  I take it at your pace, sometimes with a gentle nudge from me!

I am here to support you and your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified with College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in 2017 and hold a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy.

My ongoing professional development study is an essential part of keeping up to date with ongoing changes within my industry as well as expanding my knowledge and skills.

I am a member of BANT, CHNC and ANP.

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.


Initial Consultation £75 - this can be up to 1hr 45 minutes

Follow-up Session £45 - this can be up to 45 minutes

Wheelchair user access

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.
