About me

I have worked as a healthcare practitioner for 30 years and am qualified to MSc level in clinical Nutrition with a Diploma in Lifestyle Medicine.

Nutritional Therapy is an effective way of providing individuals with personalised diet and lifestyle advice which is tailored to their needs. I offer bespoke dietary programmes based on your symptoms, an analysis of your dietary habits and lifestyle. I hold regular clinics at the Spire hospital and can offer daytime or evening appointments to suit your schedule. I also offer online consultations at a time to suit you.

You may require help with understanding how your diet can affect your day to day symptoms and this can apply to people who have been diagnosed with a specific health condition, or who just experience a general sense of being 'under par' where medical tests have shown no abnormality.

Others who can benefit from the help of a Nutritional Therapist are those who want to manage their weight but have been unsuccessful with regular dieting and are looking for a fresh evidence-based approach to weight management.

I also offer talks on various aspects of nutrition, and mini-consultations for companies who wish to help their staff to improve their health. For more information, please contact me for further details.

For more information on how Nutritional Therapy can benefit a variety of health conditions, please visit my website or email me about your requirements. To find out how others have benefited from their consultations, please view the Testimonials page on my website.
