About me

Hi, I'm Nicky, a registered Nutritional Therapist and foodie with a passion for making healthy eating delicious, enjoyable and easy. Drawing on the latest nutritional science, and grounded in my experience of using nourishing foods to overcome my own health challenges, my aim is to inspire and motivate people to achieve better health, energy and vitality through eating and living well.

As well as helping clients to eat better for general health, weight management and wellbeing, I have particular interests in functional nutrition approaches to support gut health, immune function and blood sugar control. My approach always starts with helping clients eat as diverse a range of delicious, real foods as possible, but I also have extensive personal and professional experience with special diets including low FODMAP, gluten and dairy free, paleo and autoimmune paleo.

I have recently moved to Bristol and now combine my part-time nutritional therapy practice, Vitalise Nutrition, with my roles leading the nutrition team at Penny Brohn UK, and MSc module supervisor. I offer personal consultation packages as well as occasional group courses and workshops. My approach is friendly, practical and supportive and recognises that we all have busy lives and diet and lifestyle changes need to fit with this. Appointments may be in person or online to suit your preference.

How I can help

  • Personal nutrition plans to support specific health concerns
  • Healthy eating and weight management packages
  • Help with meal planning, recipes, food shopping and kitchen makeovers
  • Support with special diets
  • Functional testing
  • Nutrition talks and workshops
  • Workplace wellbeing plans

How I work and what to expect

My aim is to make your nutritional therapy experience as relaxed, enjoyable and informative as possible. My approach is very much tailored to a client's specific needs and preferences, but as a guide:

  • My personal nutrition plans are intended for those with a specific health concern or condition that might benefit from nutritional support. The initial plan includes 3 consultations (3- 4 hours in total). The first appointment lasts for up to 2 hours and is an opportunity to really get to understand your health situation and review how your diet and lifestyle might be contributing to your situation. We will then discuss recommendations that fit with your needs and lifestyle and after the consultation I will prepare a written report and recommendations and send these to you along with other helpful resources such as recipes and information sheets etc.
  • My healthy eating and weight management plans are for those who would like support to lose weight sustainably, or make significant dietary and lifestyle changes. I offer a range of packages with a minimum of 3 sessions, normally over 8-12 weeks. Each package includes tailored guidance and recommendations along with a toolkit of resources including recipes, meal plans and food lists.I
  • If helpful am happy to offer a free 15 minute telephone conversation to discuss how nutritional therapy might help you and how we might work together
  • After booking a consultation I will send you a comprehensive health questionnaire and food diary to complete. I use this information, along with research, to prepare for our session
