About me

I am a registered Nutritional Therapist with a specialised interest in the functional medicine approach . I qualified at the College of Naturopathic Medicine and have since completed the AFMCP with the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) in the US. I am also a DNAHealth certified practitioner. DNALife are a laboratory based in Copenhagen.  This means I am qualified to order, interprete and provide nutritional or lifestyle recommendations based on their  saliva-based DNA tests. Genetic testing and nutrigenomics are interesting additions to personalised nutrition. These tests can give an insight into your health for instance if you are lactose intolerant, how you metabolise fats vs carbohydrates.

I specialise in gut and hormone health but also enjoy helping clients with weight loss. I believe the health of the gut is the driver of several chronic conditions - in fact research into gut health has exploded over the last few years and is now associated with several conditions.

I really believe in the healing power of foods and have seen the concept of 'Food as Medicine' work again and again. I believe working towards finding the root cause of your symptoms is important in order to support my clients nutritionally, allowing the body to heal itself. After the first consultation, which is typically 75mins, I provide a detailed nutrition and lifestyle protocol for my clients to follow over a 5-6 week period after which we meet again for a follow-up.

I am scientific-focused and like to keep up to date with the latest scientific papers focused on nutrition and health. I write a blog frequently on topics such as hormones, toxins, nutrients etc In practice, I find functional testing (blood, saliva, stool) really useful to inform an even better targeted nutrition protocol but this is not always necessary.

I will provide a free 15min consultation should you have further questions on how I can help you achieve your health goals. I can run consultations remotely via Zoom or in central London.
