Sarah West-Sadler BSc (Hons), MSc, MBANT, CNHC
Food gives us life, but it shouldn’t rule our life.
Having a healthy relationship with food keeps you in shape, maintains your physical and mental wellbeing and gives you the energy to get on with the wonderful business of living.
Everything is balanced.
An unhealthy relationship with food leads to a poor diet, which affects far more than your body shape and size.
Health, energy, weight, self-esteem and mood are all affected and stop you living your life the way you want.
Everything becomes unbalanced.
Find your diet, for your life
Eating what’s right for you is about more than meeting your body’s physical needs. The right diet needs to satisfy your tastes, lifestyle, budget - and the rest of the family.
It needs to be easy for you to manage and to maintain.The right diet is part of your life, without ruling your life.
And with a little bit of help, it’s easier than you think.
My name is Sarah and I can help you
I am many things. A qualifed nutritionist and an experienced metabolic balance practitioner with over 20 years in the food and nutrition industry.
But more importantly, I am like you.
I am a mum to three happy, hormonal, noisy, complicated, do-my-head-in teenagers (13 year old twins Will & Sophie and 17 year old Jack. Jack also happens to have Downs syndrome), a business owner, wife, daughter, volunteer and friend.
I understand about the stresses and strains of living. I know how food can become more than fuel. How it can be used as an emotional crutch, a replacement, an excuse, a chore.
And I know that this affects our health, happiness, energy, weight and self-esteem.
I have suffered from irregular bowel habits, mood swings, fatigue and weight gain.
And I have addressed these issues by addressing my diet.
My promise to you
Working together, we’ll find small yet impactful, sustainable and life-improving changes to what you eat and what you do.
Whether you want to up your energy levels, lower your weight, improve your health or simply eat better, we will find the right strategy for you.
Has that given you food for thought?
If you think I could help you and you’d like to find out more, get in touch and we’ll have a chat.

Take charge of your health, happiness & weight
I offer a range of personalised programmes, designed to help you achieve the health you desire. I know from experience that the best way for you to get results is by working with you for a longer period of time (usually 12 weeks or longer). If you are looking for a one-time consultation, then sadly, I’m not the right person for you.
It takes time to create healthy habits and develop a positive and lasting relationship with food. If you’re looking for ongoing support, to achieve your health goals, once and for all, I would love to work with you. During your initial phone-call, we can discuss which is the right programme for you.
Programmes are tailored to suit your individual needs and start from £350.
Start your journey, contact me now to book your initial phone-call, no cost, no obligation.
All programmes contain an initial consultation and follow-up consultations which may be in person, via skype, phone-call or via email.
