About me

Nutritional therapy is specific to each person.  The aim is to address the issues you want to address and improve your overall health and well being by carefully looking at what you really need in the way of food, vitamins, minerals and lifestyle.

An initial consultation will last approximately an hour and then any follow up sessions will be 45 minutes.  Before the first meeting you will be asked to complete a questionnaire to help provide some background information. As well as going through the issues you wish to address, recommendations will be made about foods and possibly supplements to address your health issues.  Additionally specific tests may also be recommended.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been in private practice for 11 years having trained at the Institute of Optimum Nutrition.  Through the training I have received I use the Functional Medicine approach, which considers underlying causes of health concerns, looking at you as a whole individual rather than as an isolated set of symptoms.

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.

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.
