Rosie Pearce - Registered Nutritional Therapist
Rosie has a passion to share information about how lifestyle and nutrition can benefit our health. She currently helps clients with their food choices enabling them to take control of their health, particularly when it comes to stress, gut function, low energy or mood and cognitive function. As well as seeing improvements to their own health they often feel they can use the knowledge to make a difference to those they care for too. If you want to make these changes to your life contact me and arrange a free initial phone consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I continue to keep up to date with new research by attending a variety of seminars and conferences throughout the year. I also meet regularly with other nutritional therapists. Each individual case is researched and this means my knowledge and experience is being added to all the time.
My BSc in Nutritional Medicine from University of West London meets the National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Nutritional Therapy and the NTC Core Curriculum
Professional Membership and Registration
