About me

My name is Lelani Loubser and I am a qualified and registered Nutritional Therapist, Herbalist, Naturopath and Neuro-Linguistic Programming Health Coach.

I am accredited with BANT and CNHC and undertake more than 200 hours of continuous practice development each year to keep up-to-date with all scientific developments within my area of healthcare.

What we eat can have a material influence on our mental well-being. We don’t necessarily have control over what life throws our way, but we can influence our physical response to stress with a balanced approach to nutrition and using supportive herbs. This can enable us to deal with unexpected events without feeling overwhelmed.

In recent years, there has been an increased awareness of how important mental health is as a component of general wellness but is often still under cared for as part of our daily health regime.

Common issues related to mental health can include feeling low, irritable, angry, having panic attacks, unable to sleep, chronic pain, neurodiversity issues, anhedonia, Bipolar disorder, PTSD, seasonal affective disorder and memory issues.

However, in addition to these direct issues, mental health can also lead to numerous other health complications including issues with digestion and blood glucose and be a risk factor for developing dementia.

There is a well established correlation between how we feel and how the body reacts to these feelings. For example, changes in the body can change the way the brain works through the gut-brain-axis and immune system and lead to a worsening mental state. Therefore, when seeking to address any mental issues, it’s also vital to consider any physiological factors which may be contributing towards that mental state.

We have all had a personal experience of feeling low in energy and depressed after an infectious illness. It was always believed that the brain was protected from the immune system but studies in this area have identified that the immune system can communicate across the blood brain barrier via cytokines and activate the brain’s immune system, which consists of microglial cells. The vagus nerve can also respond to changes in the body and communicate via the gut-brain-axis.

The amazing thing about the brain is its plasticity, i.e. the ability of neural networks in the brain to change and regrow. Given the right tools, it can regenerate healthy neurons through a process called neurogenesis.

How can I help you get back to feeling well?

In our work together you will learn how to ensure that you are getting the nutrients to support optimal mental health.

I offer an initial free mental health assessment to anyone who would like to discuss their health issues with me.

These are the 5 benefits that you will discover from a ‘Mental Health Assessment’:

  1. Create a sense of clarity about ‘mental health’ and what you really want to achieve.
  2. Discover the essential building blocks to get to this point.
  3. Explore the factors that are preventing you from being healthy.
  4. Identify the most appropriate way that can move you to having good mental health.
  5. Complete the assessment with an understanding of how you can reach this goal.

Please feel free to call me on +44 (0)7482 685 209 or send me an email for a free 30 minute consultation or if you have any further questions.

I've gone to various doctors in the past, but Lelani is unique. She really takes the time to get to know your medical problems. She's responsive, caring and knowledgeable. I feel much more guided in her presence and more secure in knowing that my health is being looked after. I highly recommend her holistic approach to medicine!

Michelle C. California

Lelani is such a pleasure to deal with – empathetic, understanding and professional at every turn. I was having problems with overly emotional hormonal periods every month and she kindly made me a tincture. Even with just under 2 weeks of using it, the tincture made a huge difference in the severity and length of the next bout and has vastly reduced it to near nothing since. I am so relieved and grateful for her care and support. I would highly recommend her!

Ruth C. London

I cannot recommend Lelani Loubser, nutritionist, enough. From the outset, I have found her professional and personable, with a real air of caring for my well-being. She brought with her a wealth of expertise in food, nutrients, the body and health into our meetings and diligently researched my individual symptoms and needs in between so that each session deepened my understanding of what was happening in my body.

In particular, I have really appreciated Lelani’s whole life approach and have greatly benefited from her suggestions, such as taking a relaxing bath at the same time each night and keeping my bedroom free of work activity so that I may sleep better. These lifestyle pointers have been of significant value and, alongside the dietary guidance, I have experienced quite a transformation since first stepping into Lelani’s office. My energy levels have risen, my vitality has returned and my sense of peace feels more instilled and more easily accessible.

Lelani has shown throughout to be interested, generous, kind and insightful. Indeed, her insight paved the way for successful diagnosis of my condition that 18 months of tests and consultations with various doctors failed to spot. For this alone I would give my wholehearted recommendation, yet Lelani has proven her skills on so many more levels. She is surely one of the best out there and I, for one, am a very satisfied customer.

Sonya W. London

I first visited Lelani 3 months ago and can honestly say it has been a life-changing experience. My diet has transformed and I now understand a lot more about the link between what I put into my body and long term health. My friends and family have noticed significant differences.

Lelani has fully supported me with guidelines, reading materials, menus and ready-made shopping carts of ingredients and supplements to buy, in regular calls and emails. Some changes have been harder to incorporate into my routine than others (for example, one of the juices that was taking too long to prepare) but Lelani has adapted the recommendations to fit into my lifestyle and advised the parts which I need to make time for.

Since our first meeting, I have lost 10% of my body weight and 2 inches from my waist. More importantly, I feel healthier and have acquired skills and habits I will use for the rest of my life. I am doing things which I never believed I could just a few months ago (such as bulk cooking food at the weekend, or making my own probiotics). Thank you so much, Lelani and I hope to keep working with you to make further changes as my diet improves.

Craig E. London

I have had multiple consultations with Lelani over the past few years. She has improved my health so much. I feel a lot healthier and happier. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. I love receiving her emails with my meal plan & health advice. Not to mention the herbal medicine she makes at home! The best ever, to improve my health. I can highly recommend her as she is very friendly, professional and has amazing knowledge and understanding of human health and issues. ”Don’t forget to ask her for her homemade healthy recipes, especially the smoothies! So good for the gut!

Eszter H. London

Lelani uses a combined scientific and holistic approach with very personalised treatments. She is very thorough in getting to the cause of any health complaints. Whether you just want to improve your general health or you have a more chronic issue, nutrition should be the first point of call. Lelani is very knowledgeable and has access to the most recent nutritional science. She helps you make changes that are realistic in your lifestyle. She clearly walks her talk and this is evident as she glows with health herself.

Rebekah R. London

She is so caring and a nice person, also her advice was very good for me and my child.

Key details

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.
