About me

Taking a journey through a nutritional consultation can feel like one of the most rewarding and fascinating experiences you will have in improving your health. I initially stumbled upon nutritional therapy when I went for a consultation through my leisure centre. Through my own experience I decided to do my degrees in nutrition and bioscience so that I could understand the complexes of food and how it interacts with body to benefit us.

I have been in the world of nutrition for over 10 years and in this time I have found that diet is so personal and unique for each individual. My job is to find what works best for your physiological makeup and mindset. Together we take a journey through a consultation looking at aspects of your health that you would like to improve and how we can accomplish this, this may be through diet alone or also include tests, supplements and lifestyle changes.

Training, qualifications & experience

My interest in nutrition inspired me to take two degrees alongside each other, one was in Bioscience Nutrition (BSc) at London South Bank University. The other was Nutritional Therapy (Foundation Degree)at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition.

Since being fully qualified I have worked with a clinical nutrition team for 6 years supporting practitioners with research on nutrition, health and supplementation.

I now work for hospitality company working closely with allergens, intolerance. Prior to this I was with a catering company writing school dinner and nursery menus to ensure they reach the highest soil association standards. As part of my role I provide workshops for schools, colleges, business and care. The workshops are by far one of the most rewarding part of this role as I get to interact with a wide range of people finding out what makes them tick. The workshops are a great interactive way to find ways to achieve healthy eating that is practical, achievable, enjoyable and fun.

I also run a blog and write nutritional support posts for a local yoga newsletter and magazines and recently provided talks for:

NHS on endometriosis

Deutsche Bank on stress and insomnia

Thurston Community Sixth Form College on mental health

Maidenhill School Year 11 GCSE class on the immune system

Bourke and Amblecote providing bimonthly talks on cardiovascular health, the immune system, weight management and joint health

Initial Consultation (1 hour): The consultation will take place after the questionnaire has been filled out and returned. The hours consultation will be carried out face to face. What the consultation shall cover: We will go through your nutritional and medical profile and come up with a plan together on dietary and lifestyle changes you can make within the following month to support your health goal. The consultation may or may not include tests to be carried out depending on your health and health goals

Follow up consultation (45mins): The consultation may either be face to face, over skype or a telephone consultation What the consultation shall cover We will follow up on the program we set for the previous month and see if we still need to make adjustments to help us work towards your initial goal, or if you have a new goal you would like to achieve. There may be results of tests to cover and at this point there may be supportive supplements recommended and further adjustments to be made to your diet and lifestyle. We will decide if we need to make any further developments to the suggestions previously made and if you have any new targets to achieve.
