Maggie Thorpe MA H.Ed, FHEA, MBANT, CNHC
I am an experienced and professionally registered Nutritionist and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner working in the West Sussex and Surrey areas. I work in private clinical practice offering one-to-one nutrition consultations as well as run group talks, workshops and short courses on all aspects of nutrition and healthy eating. I also provide nutrition consultancy for local and national organisations.
Why use nutritional therapy?
You may want to simply check that you are on the right track with regard to healthy eating. You may want to lose weight or get help with symptoms. Nutritional therapy practitioners recognise that each person is an individual with unique requirements and take time to define a personalised nutrition plan rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Nutrition information and advice
The focus of our sessions together will be on helping you to improve and sustain an optimum level of health and well-being by finding new and better ways of eating that is right for you. We will work together to enable you to make the changes you agree are appropriate and achievable and progress is made at a pace that is right for you.
If you would like to find out more about how nutritional therapy can help you before arranging a consultation, please give me a call or send an email.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained and qualified in 2002 as a nutritional therapy practitioner with the Raworth College of Natural Medicine and the Centre for Nutrition Education. I have worked in private clinical practice since qualifying and attend regular courses and workshops to ensure that my practice knowledge is kept up to date with the latest research.
I have worked closely with the nutritional therapy professional body, BANT, on their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee and chaired the committee for 3 years. I also worked on the BANT Supervision programme, as part of the project team that researched and put forward the proposal for the Supervision Programme which is now running successfully across the UK.
I am a qualified college and university lecturer completing my Masters Degree in Higher Education in 2016 where I researched the student experience of blended learning in Nutritional Therapy clinical training. As an educator, I have held a number of roles in lecturing and assessment, clinical and research supervision, module and year leadership and personal tutoring on Diploma, BSc and MSc programmes in Nutritional Therapy. I am also an external assessor for nutritional therapy clinical practice qualifications. Alongside my nutritional therapy role, I also develop and run workshops and training sessions for Adult & Community Learning providers on all aspects of healthy eating and nutrition.
I am also a registered Reflexology practitioner.
