Nissa Dewshi (dipNT, mBANT, rCNHC)
Hi I am a qualified and accredited Nutritional Therapist, based in London. I practice at Neal's Yard Remedies in Covent Garden and from my clinic room based in Harrow. I also am happy to visit people in their homes who live in greater London region, specifically Harrow and Brent. If you live further away I am happy to skype
I studied Naturopathy at the University of Westminster where I came to understand that the body has a potential for healing and through supporting the body with good nutrition, self care practice and applying non intrusive methods such as herbs, supplements, massage, optimal health can be achieved that is long lasting.
I am passionate about Nutrition and having a healthy diet to not only overcome any health difficulties but to reach optimal health that enables a life full of energy, vitality and purpose. I address the root cause of the symptoms rather than treating the individual symptoms.
Through applying the principles of Naturopathy in order to address my own health concerns, including weight gain and low energy, particularly through dietary changes, I was able to find new energy and a transformative sense of wellbeing. I strive to achieve this with each client.
I believe that we can all reach the health that we desire through supporting the body with diet and lifestyle changes. With guidance and support I help each client acquire a deeper understanding of their own health and any imbalances that may be occurring so that they are empowered to make necessary changes and achieve their health goals.
I believe each client is unique and therefore a thorough assessment and case history is undertaken for each client. Following, a health care plan will be written up to address the client's goals. This includes dietary changes, lifestyle advice and supplements based on individual findings. I believe in working with each client so that realistic and achievable changes can be made and support each client fully on their transformative health journey.

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.
