About me

Hi, I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist and a Metabolic Balance Practitioner. I am passionate about nutrition and lifestyle medicine and believe this is the future of healthcare. I work closely with my clients on a 1:1 basis offering a holistic journey to health and wellbeing. I have supported many people on their wellness journey and helped them feel at their best.

I do not advocate diets or short-term quick fixes. Instead, I empower people to make intelligent food choices that eventually kick-start a lifetime of healthy eating. I offer nutritionally balanced food plans and recipes that are easy to follow and tailored for you.

As a natural foodie, I love experimenting in the kitchen with wholesome ingredients and recipes. I am keen to impart my passion to help you make nutritionally balanced food choices and plate up quick, simple and tasty meals. As a busy mum to three teenage children, I understand the demands and challenges faced when juggling work and family life, and how nutrition support can prove beneficial.

I am constantly learning through research about the food we put in our body and I feel it is my purpose to share this knowledge in a friendly and informative way. I have been trained to 'connect-the-dots' to identify core imbalances and their underlying causes to improve physiological function. In addition to studying Nutritional Therapy at a Masters level, I have completed an intensive 5-day training course in London 2018 called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice - AFMCP™. I work collaboratively with functional medicine doctors, a psychiatrist, and health coaches. We are proud to be the first multidisciplinary functional medicine clinic in the North. Being part of this health care set up allows our team to tailor a holistic assessment to meet complex health needs. We also offer in-house functional testing and phlebotomy appointments at our clinic.

I am a professional member of BANT and registered with the CNHC association. Our practice is evidence-based and we regularly attend lectures, seminars and CPD events to keep us up to date with the evolving research in this fascinating field of nutrition and lifestyle medicine.
