I specialise in women’s health, including perimenopause, thyroid, menstrual problems and intimate health conditions. I also have extensive experience in dealing with gastro-intestinal complaints, food sensitivities, blood sugar dysregulation and weight loss issues.
I have seen incredible changes in the health of my clients, and I hope to do the same for you.

Have you been struggling with health challenges for years but have been told that all your test results are “normal”? My mission is to unravel your health story to get to the heart of the problem.
Functional medicine looks at the person as a whole. Very often, for example, female hormonal problems and skin issues are actually rooted in the gut. Difficulty losing weight may be as a consequence of stress. Problems in the gut may be coming from compromised nerve activity in the brain. Fatigue may be caused by inadequate nutritional intake.
Using the functional medicine model I will aim to get to the root cause of your symptoms or condition. I will support you in making dietary changes and lifestyle modifications. I will use functional lab testing where appropriate.
I work with all the leading laboratories in the UK and offer a variety of functional testing: advanced female hormones, gastro-intestinal health, food sensitivities, adrenal health, genetic testing, health of your gut/oral/vaginal/urinary microbiomes, detoxification, methylation and more.
At the start of our journey together I will gather a lot of information about your health through careful history taking. We will discuss all your body systems, I will ask you about your health from birth to present day, your level of physical exercise, your lifestyle, life stresses and dietary habits (using your completed food diary as reference). I will explain how I believe that these factors may be contributing to your health issues.
From this, a nutritional programme will be developed that is completely unique to you and that works for you. Your treatment plan will reflect the goals that we agree for you, and it is likely to include nutritional advice, lifestyle changes, functional lab testing and supplement recommendations.
As a nutritional therapist and energy worker, my unique combination offers support on all levels in a holistic way, not just the physical body.

When I work
I am available weekdays and also some evenings and weekends.
My passion is to help others improve their wellbeing so that they live their lives to the fullest.
I believe that there is a mind-body-soul connection and that all need to be balanced to achieve a state of wellbeing.
My background in data analysis and statistics means that I can use my logical mind to analyse my client’s information and connect different symptoms, which may appear uncorrelated, until I build a picture that gets me to the root cause of my client’s health condition. Only by tackling the root cause of a health issue will there be permanent long term health improvements.
I aim to empower my clients to take control of their own health; I achieve this by coaching them rather than just prescribing.
I am registered with the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT). I am also a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). As a CNHC member, I meet the National Occupational Standards in the practice of nutritional therapy and I am obliged to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics. I am also fully insured.
