About me

I work with my clients to figure out "the WHY" behind their symptoms and illness. I do the detective work so they can understand where things are going wrong. Once someone understands why they feel a certain way, it is much easier for them to find the motivation and strength to get better.

My journey in health and nutrition began many years before I trained as a Nutritional Therapist. I have had my fair share of health issues which have made me the sympathetic and determined practitioner that I consider to be today. I can completely relate to what it is like to not feel ourselves, new symptoms creeping in, going from one doctor to another looking for answers and being told that there is nothing wrong.

Food is one of my passions and I love sharing tips with my clients to help them develop a healthy and long lasting enjoyable relationship with food, whilst helping them achieve their health goals.


I trained in the Functional Medicine model. Functional Medicine is an evidence-based approach, looking at the whole person and system imbalances. Rather than treating a symptom, Functional Medicine looks at potential imbalances and dysfunction in the body which may be the root cause or contributing to symptoms and disease.

Every person is biochemically unique so treatment should be just as individual. I work with each of my clients to develop a realistic and sustainable dietary and lifestyle plan to improve their health and quality of life.

I see both adults and children. Whilst I very much enjoy doing the detective work for clients with chronic and sometimes debilitating symptoms, I also enjoy working with children. Children are more sensitive than adults and usually respond well to simple interventions. I love watching families come together and alter the trajectory not only of their child’s health, but of the whole family. There’s a big ripple effect when the family takes on healing with a child.

Some of the areas I work with and see most commonly in clinic:

  • Gut health and all gut related symptoms
  • Immune dysfunction and autoimmune conditions, allergies, intolerances/ sensitivities, food reactions, recurrent colds & infections, feeling "run down"
  • Female health and hormone imbalances, stress, PMS/PMT, difficulty losing weight/putting on weight
  • Thyroid dysfunction, hypo and hyperthyroidism, sub-optimal thyroid function
  • Skin issues
  • Mitochondrial dysfunction, unexplained fatigue, chronic pain
  • Children's health, fussy eaters, tummy troubles, skin issues, behavioural problems


My approach focuses on food and lifestyle first. I do use supplements where essential and recommend tests through the NHS and private laboratories where appropriate. These are optional and discussed during the consultation.

Wheelchair-accessible premises

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 access No

I offer home visits locally (for a small fee) for clients using wheelchairs and for those who are not able to travel.
