About me

I studied clinical nutrition with the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London, and have been practising in the Salisbury area, and at Neal's Yard Remedies in particular, for over 14 years. I now have a second practice at Not Just Backs in Tisbury. I came to nutrition not as a practising health professional, but as the owner of a small catering business and a lifelong love of good food. The chance to really understand the biochemistry behind how we use food has taken me on an amazing journey with new research opening up ever more exciting possibilities from week to week.

On the basis that every chemical reaction in our body is totally reliant on the nutrients absorbed from what we eat, there can be nothing more important than a healthy diet. It is a privilege to help my patients back to biochemical balance and optimum health through a healthy diet and lifestyle and an optimistic outlook.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in 1999 and since then have undertaken many hours of continuing professional development through seminars, lectures, research literature and professional journals to stay abreast of new advances in scientific nutritional understanding.

Apart from seeing patients in clinic, I have done research and developed recipes for four books with The Food Doctor; formed part of the NHS Wessex Chronic Fatigue support group; have given CPD seminars, local talks and demonstrations and contributed to local radio and publications. I run the Nutrition for Wellbeing course for Neal's Yard Remedies and supervise the student clinics for CNM; I have been responsible for formulating their own brand supplements for Neal's Yard Remedies; I have recently contributed the research element of the book Food Heroes from Radiant on Raw.

I am a member of BANT and registered with CNHC.
