Wellbeing Coach and Nutritionist for fatigue & gut issues

About me

Do you want more energy and vitality? To feel good after eating? To feel you can enjoy your food without deprivation or worry?

As a registered nutritional therapist and health coach I can help you uncover the root causes of your health issues. I can work with you to establish achievable dietary goals to help you achieve long-term health. To inspire you, motivate you and support you to achieve better health and well-being.

I work with those who are have gut issues, who struggle with weight-loss, have low energy levels, food intolerances, may be depressed as well as with clients who may have any number of chronic conditions. I look at what small changes to your diet and lifestyle can help you to resolve your symptoms.

I have a particular interest in supporting those who suffer with fatigue, gastrointestinal issues and food intolerances. I use evidence based dietary and lifestyle advice to help you over come these issues in a holistic way. I also use coaching to help you overcome barriers to change. Supplements to fast track change may be used and diagnostic testing if appropriate to gain further information.

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 nutritional therapy session or Wellbeing Coaching session?

For Wellbeing Coaching it may be a bit different to Nutritional Therapy and we will discuss prior to the session what it is you are looking for. If you know you want nutritional and health advice then 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 supported to follow a food elimination diet for a couple of 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 to 45 minutes long and the number of sessions would depend on your goals, initial state of health and how much support you feel you need.

If you are unsure whether Nutritional Therapy or Wellbeing Coaching is for you why not call me on 07941 458993? I offer a free 15 minute consultation either by telephone or in person to give you an opportunity to explain your health concerns to ascertain in what way I may be able to support you.

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.


£95.00 per session

Additional information

When our energy is low, we are out of shape and our digestion isn't what it should be, there are some major imbalances that need to be addressed.  We are highly complex and biochemically unique.  In my experience, it takes a minimum of 3 months to bring about lasting change and to embed positive healthy habits.  We will work together following a plan that is tailored specifically to you.  I offer different levels of support to achieve this and my programmes start from £350 for 3-month program with monthly sessions and range up to £830 for a program with weekly support over a longer period.

Booking a package helps you to maintain the momentum and achieve your goals and makes nutritional therapy more cost effective.

If you are unsure that a package is right for you, just book for the initial session. At the end of this session we can then decide what would be most suitable for you.  

I offer a free 15 minute consultation either by telephone, Zoom or in person for you to talk about your health concerns and to see in what way I may be able to support you.

I also offer a one-off session for tailor made healthy eating advice. This can be very beneficial if you feel you are already on a healthy diet but want to check that you are on the right track or if you need some advice on how to best achieve weight loss without calorie counting!

When I work

I offer day-time and evening appointments. If a week day appointment is not possible I can also offer Saturday mornings.  Appointments can be in person or via Zoom or a combination.  

Further information

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. I can also offer Saturday morning sessions if you can't do week times!

There is off street parking and very easy access.

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.
