Dr Lindsey Fellows (Ph.D, MSc, PG Dip, BA Hons)
As a registered Nutritional Therapist, I use a variety of tools and methods to assess the individual, and spend time analysing any nutritional imbalances that may be contributing to current health concerns, symptoms or conditions. YOU are central to YOUR success and my role is to provide evidence based guidance that will support you to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes appropriate to you.
My nutrition philosophy is based on eating well and nourishing your body. A well-balanced, bespoke diet means that you should be able to eat a wide variety of good, healthy food. I provide personalised nutrition support and guidance, based solely on your current health needs, dietary requirements, and the goals you want to set yourself. I believe that a good diet should be supported by physical activity, relaxation and rest, so your lifestyle habits will also be considered during the consultation process.
I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation, where we will discuss your reasons for seeking support and your current health status, so please do get in touch!
Training, qualifications & experience
- Registered Nutritional Therapist – mBANT / CNHC registered
- PG Diploma Nutritional Therapy (Distinction)
- Ph.D. MSc, PGCHE and BA (Hons)
- Motivational Interviewing Trainer
- HEA Teaching Fellow
I studied Nutritional Therapy at the University of Worcester. Previous to that I worked as a University Lecturer in the area of sport, exercise, physical activity and health. In that time, I also gained a Ph.D. Since qualifying as a Nutritional Therapist, my previous knowledge and newly acquired skills complement one another. I advocate the value of being physically active and eating well, and how this contributes to health and well-being overall.
I am trained in Motivational Interviewing, which dovetails with Nutritional Therapy, because understanding the behavioural aspects of nutrition is fundamental to the Nutritional Therapy process.
I am also fortunate to have continued work as a Guest Lecturer, and now teach on the MSc Nutritional Therapy and MSc Diet, Nutrition and Health at the Worcester of University, where my main roles are teaching Research Methods and supervising MSc Dissertations.

I chose the name Tua Nutrition (‘Tua’ is Latin for ‘Your’), because it embodies the personalised approach to nutrition that I follow. Nutritional Therapy is not a broad brush, ‘one size fits all’ practice, and any changes I recommend will be tailored specifically to your needs and wishes. You will receive a nutrition plan, including lots of practical tips, that is bespoke to you and ‘your’ nutrition.
