Do you feel you want more energy? Are you feeling depressed or low? Are you having gut issues or feeling uncomfortable with your weight?
I am a registered nutritional therapist and can help you explore the root causes of your health problems. I work with you to establish achievable dietary goals to help you achieve long-term health. Supplements to fast track change may be used based on scientific studies, and diagnostic testing may be carried out if appropriate to gain further information.
I work with those who are feeling under par, who may be stressed, feel depressed or low, may be over weight or may have low energy. I look at how poor diet, liefestyle choices, gastrointestinal issues and possible food intolerances may be affecting your health. I use evidence based dietary and lifestyle advice to help you over come these issues in a holistic way.
Making adjustments to your nutrition and to your lifestyle can make a real difference to the way you feel!
Healthy eating does not mean deprivation as I will inspire you and support you in your journey towards better health!
What happens in a session?
You will be sent a detailed health questionnaire prior to the initial session and will be asked to do a three-day food diary. The questionnaire and food diary will ideally be returned to me prior to the first meeting.
During the session, which will last approximately 90 minutes, we will work out a plan that incorporates dietary and lifestyle changes and fits your individual needs and circumstances. Supplements and or diagnostic testing may be suggested if it is thought appropriate.
If it is thought a food intolerance may be at the route of your health issues, you may be encouraged to follow a food elimination diet for a few weeks to establish if there are any changes in signs and symptoms. You would be given ideas and recipes to help you over that period of time.
Follow-up sessions are usually about 30 minutes long and the number of sessions would depend on your goals and initial state of health.
If you are unsure whether Nutritional Therapy is for you why not call me for a chat? I offer a free 15 minute consultation either by telephone or face-to-face to give you an opportunity to explain your health concerns to ascertain in what way I may be able to support you.

The number of sessions you attend is entirely up to you and will be dictated by your health goals.

Whilst I see clients with numerous different issues I am particularly passionate about supporting clients who present with digestion related problems. Due to food intolerances in the family, we tend to be gluten and dairy free which has given me great insight into alternative and exciting cooking.
I can see you at the consultacy rooms in Henleaze, Bristol and I offer evening sessions as well as day time sessions. There is off street parking and very easy access.
