Nutritional Therapist, Health Coach & Zest4life Practitioner.
I am a registered Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach who specialises in working with people for whose everyday 'normal' means living with symptoms that stop you doing the things that you love to do. If this sounds like you, I can help you to make simple nutritional and lifestyle changes that can bring enormous improvements to your health and your quality of life.
My health and weight loss programmes are tailored to you as an individual to combine simple achievable nutrition and lifestyle changes with one-to-one health coaching. I will work closely with you to learn about your medical history, symptoms and lifestyle. Not only will you begin to feel better very quickly but you will be giving yourself the gift of energy, a clear mind, losing those extra pounds and a super health boost that will leave you looking and feeling fantastic - whatever your age!
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained for three years at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London, qualifying with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy, based on Functional Medicine & fully accredited by The Nutritional Therapy Education Commission [NTEC]. I consult the most recent evidence-based research to ensure a safe and effective practice with high professional standards.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
My Health & Weight Loss Programmes start at £350 for a 12-week support programme.
I offer a complimentary 30 minute Health & Vitality call in which you can see if a nutritional therapy programme would suit your needs. I'll also give you some tips to get you started on the road to great health and taking charge of your body.

"Michelle really listened to me and took into consideration my culture and lifestyle. After one session I really understood why I was relying on sugary snacks and the reasons for my fatigue and weight gain, which made it easier to make some dietary changes. I've lost weight steadily and at the age of 56, I look great and regularly dance the night away!" Kebera Baptiste
"With Michelle's guidance and expertise I have added thyroid supporting nutrients to my diet. I’ve lost weight and my skin looks amazing too." Sally White
"Theo was missing an enormous amount school due to stomach pains. Michelle understood what a teenage boy could and would do in terms of diet and nutrition and he was symptom free within weeks. He got fantastic GCSE grades last summer and is now doing his A levels!" Claire Rampere
"My cholesterol and weight were out of control and I didn't fancy a future of pills and ill health. Michelle introduced me to ideas to improve my diet and general wellbeing in such a friendly, supportive way that I felt totally at ease with her. I still enjoy really good food and the occasional beer. I've lost over a stone and rediscovered my old passion for hiking and running." Simon
