Lifelong Nutrition - Penny Dembo BSc mBANT CNHC registered
I am able to bring my in-depth knowledge of nutrition together with my experience of working with people as an NHS health professional, to help me work effectively with individuals who want to use food and nutrition to improve their health and well being.
I have always had a passion for cooking and eating delicious healthy food. Having worked for many years in the NHS as a Speech and Language Therapist, I decided to combine my interest in health and wellbeing with my love of food, by training as a Nutritional Therapist. I completed a degree course in Nutritional Medicine, graduating in 2009. The course was fascinating and combined studying the science of food and nutrition and its effect on health, with supervised clinical training. I have continued to update my knowledge and skills though regular continuing professional development (CPD) activities.
I set up Lifelong Nutrition to offer a caring and professional Nutritional Therapy service in Sheffield and surrounding areas of South Yorkshire, north Derbyshire and north Nottinghamshire.
I am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (the UK regulator set up by the Government to ensure that registered Therapists are fully trained), and follow the code of practice of my professional association, the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT).
