About me

Having fully qualified as a Nutritional Therapist in 2011, I have enjoyed building up experience in clinic and am keen to share my training with all who wish to listen and apply it to their lives. Over 19 years' work experience in the field of health, nutrition, psychology and wellness has taught me that there is always more to learn!

My journey into nutrition began over 20years ago, whilst studying psychology at Swansea University.

I was reading about the links between what we eat and how this can affect our mood and wellbeing, as well as our physical health. My dissertation was written about probiotics from a psychological point of view, little did I realise at the time how my career would later develop into nutritional science, gut microbiome and its application in individual healthcare ..

I aim to create action plans with each individual that are as realistic, attainable, enjoyable and effective as possible. Typically this may be in relation to digestion, energy levels, immune function, hormonal imbalance or weight management.
