I have worked as a healthcare practitioner for 30 years and am qualified to MSc level in clinical Nutrition.
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 laboratory testing if required. I hold regular clinics at the Spire hospital and in Beverley and can offer daytime or evening appointments to suit your schedule. I also offer Skype consultations for those who require them.
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, including weight management. For more information, please contact me for further details.
