I am a qualified registered nutritional therapist with specific interests in weight management, women's health, hormone health & blood glucose regulation. I can help you establish what your health goals are and coach you in how to achieve them. According to the World Health Organisation, most chronic degenerative diseases associated with ageing are wholly preventable through diet and lifestyle! Once you reach your 40s you reach a critical window for you to make an investment in a healthier future – as the saying goes, you reap what you sow. Put the time and effort in now, and you will be thankful later! When we are younger we don't tend to think about the long term effects of our actions. We may abuse our bodies with unhealthy diets and lifestyles, not thinking about the impact this will have on our future selves. In our 40s and 50s, it's our chance to start taking stock - it's time to really think about our future and how we want it to look. Do we want to be riddled with chronic disease? Do we want to be taking countless medications for the rest of our lives? Or do we want to do everything in our power to try and prevent that while we can? The World Health Organisation says we can do it. I say let's take control of our health, let's not just leave it to chance. Take control now and do everything you can to pave the way to a healthier future. I am here for you, to educate, guide and support you in your journey towards better health.
I offer free 15 minute telephone consultations to new clients, to discuss your concerns and how I can be of service.
My special clinical interests include but are not limited to:
- weight management
- women's health and hormonal health
- blood glucose regulation
Do contact me to see if I can help. My consultations take place face to face, either at your home or place of work, or at my clinic in Bushey, and I can also offer online consultations if required. I also practice at the Disability Foundation, a charity based in the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, providing complementary therapies to disabled people and their carers. I deliver the NHS NDPP for reversing prediabetes. I also give talks and presentations to companies, community & charity groups.
Covid19 Update - my consultations are currently online via Zoom

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.
