I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist and Kinesiologist with a BSc in Nutritional Medicine. I've been in practice for over 10 years and in that time I’ve continued my professional training by attending conferences, seminars, workshops and generally keeping up-to-date with the latest medical research. I’ve learnt about nutrition, functional medicine, kinesiology, homeopathy, phytobiophysics, Bach flower remedies, herbs, EFT and I continue to add more skills to my toolkit.
I also run Retreats and give talks in schools and organisations as well as writing in national magazines on health. I am offer nutrition and wellbeing support Transgender people.

What some of my clients say:
I first visited Maria around four years ago. I had a variety of health complaints but didn’t expect them all to be solved by seeing one person. I stumbled upon Maria’s website by chance but feel so incredibly lucky that I did. I can honestly say that her help and advice has been life-changing for me. She is empathic and easy to talk to. Thank you SO much!!
Having tried everything but been unsuccessful in losing weight, I phoned Maria who came highly recommended. It was a call that has genuinely changed my life. I cannot thank her (and my friend who recommended her) enough. I have lost two stone. I am now in size 10 trousers and have never felt happier and full of energy. Nourish has a different approach to weight-loss. By feeding my body what it needs, I can still lose weight. Any woman or man who needs help in losing weight or just feeling healthier, happier and full of energy, should make an appointment with Nourish. You won’t regret it.
Maria has had a very positive effect on my health and well-being. Her consultations and recommendations have helped me to change my eating habits and thus regain mental and physical strength and fitness. This is also because she is very professional, well qualified and experienced in current methodology and practices. I find her friendly and calm, always happy to offer support and advice both during consultations and afterwards by phone or email. I really look forward to consultations with Maria as I always come away feeling good!
Maria’s sessions have put me back on track. I feel informed and supported to follow a clear and holistically developed nutritional and lifestyle plan to support my health and well being. I believe Maria’s has helped me to be in the best place to be able to have a healthy pregnancy and now to keep healthy as a busy mum. I highly recommend Maria at Nourish for Nutritional Therapy and Kinesiology.
All my family have been seeing Maria for some time following various illnesses. We have all benefitted enormously, both physically and emotionally. In my own case, I would say that experiencing Maria’s kindness, wisdom and care has been life-changing. I cannot thank Maria enough nor recommend her more highly.
I found visiting Maria at Nourish incredibly helpful. She made me realise how many of the issues I was having were linked to my lifestyle. I made a few tweaks on her advice - diet, supplements, lifestyle changes- things that were very easy to incorporate, and immediately started to feel better. It's amazing what she can gauge through kinesiology and just talking to you.
It is a fascinating technique applied by a knowledgeable and sympathetic practitioner. I have noticeable improvements’
