About me

Maureen Houston has been in clinical practice in Oxford continuously since January 2002, helping hundreds of patients resolve a very wide range of health concerns.   Even for people who consider themselves healthy, Maureen spends time teaching, coaching and encouraging them to cook and eat more healthily to boost their vitality, increase energy levels, and remain youthful in body and mind.

Maureen gave up a successful stockbroking career to train in the United States as an exercise therapist. She became a certified Callanetics® teacher, and ran the Callanetics® franchise in Central London for ten years.

A lifelong passion for food, and enthusiasm for fitness and health, led to three years of full-time study in health science & clinical nutrition at the University of Westminster, gaining an honours degree (2001). Maureen completed a Master’s degree in **** and weight management at the University of Chester in 2011. She attends monthly lectures in all aspects of nutrition, keeping abreast of constantly changing opinions and new discoveries in this field.

Maureen is an active member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapists (BANT), which enforces a strict code of professional practice. In addition, she is registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulatory body for nutritional therapists. She carries professional indemnity and medical malpractice insurance through Balens.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified
