About me

I have been working as a registered nutritional therapist since qualifying in 2009 and now specialise in supporting people with gut health issues. I am also a registered nurse, having worked for many years as a nursing sister in the NHS, but I now solely focus on working in the world of nutrition. My blend of knowledge and understanding and my wealth of experience is of immeasurable help in my world as a nutritional therapist and can be a huge help to my clients.

I now get to work in a role where I can make a difference to people and their health. I love supporting people to improve their health and believe that personalised and targeted nutrition can make a huge difference to everyone and to your current and future health.

I aim to support you to understand how changing your diet may help you achieve your health goals and I suggest staged and realistic, changes that you are happy with. I know that changing how and what you eat can be challenging but I support you to make sensible and achievable changes.

Areas of specialty include gut / gastrointestinal health, improving energy and stress management but I enjoy supporting people with a variety of health goals. I have also recently trained as a Metabolic Balance coach and undertaken an accredited nutrition course.

I work with my clients applying the functional medicine model, `as such I aim to understand the root cause of your health issues. Food is an integral part of the therapy and I am always inspired and amazed at how simple changes can have an enormous impact on your health. I seek to educate my clients on factors that may be affecting their health and help motivate them to make the change offering practical suggestions that are paced to each person. Functional tests are regularly recommended, I use a variety of functional laboratories to support my role and understanding of my client’s imbalances.

As well as one to one consultations I work at ION as a lecturer and as a clinical supervisor to other Nutritional Therapists.

Further information

I love helping people achieve their health goals and find working with a Nutritional Therapist a very rewarding role- I love what I do.

I am really keen that when working with my clients I strive to find simple and workable solutions that are easy for them to commit to - this way as a client you are much more likely to adhere to the recommendations that we agree and reap the rewards in terms of health improvements.

If you would like to chat to see if I am the right person to help you then; drop me an email or give me a no obligation call so that we can talk through the health issues that you would like to improve; and I can talk through the approach that I would take with you.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
