Sophie Lett - BA(Hons), DipION, mBANT, CNHC
Hi, I'm Sophie and I am a registered nutritional therapist. I mainly work with clients to support their hormone health, but also help with gut issues, stress, low energy, weight or advising on how to live a healthier lifestyle.
My aim is to help clients understand how the food we eat and our lifestyle choices can underpin our health and wellbeing. I consider underlying factors that may be contributing to their health issues and use evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle interventions to help clients make simple changes, which drive results.
I offer private one-to-one consultations at my clinic in Twyford, Hampshire or online (via Zoom). Please note however, that due to the current pandemic, I am only seeing clients online/by phone.
I normally work with my clients over a period of time. This gives us the opportunity to fully assess any health concerns, set goals, implement and work through dietary and lifestyle changes and consider testing if required.
Most clients start with an initial 12-week Personalised Nutritional Therapy programme. Each programme typically involves an initial 90 minute consultation with monthly 60 minute follow ups, with some clients booking in for additional shorter sessions in between.
If you would like to know more about how I might be able to support you, please get in touch for a free initial 15 minute call.
Training, qualifications & experience
I spent four years studying Nutritional Therapy at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London, where I was awarded a distinction. I’m continually learning by attending ongoing training days and events which ensures I keep up to date with the latest scientific, evidence-based research which informs my practice.
I am a member of both the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I have full professional indemnity insurance cover.
As well as running my own private clinic, I have worked as part of a team of nutritional therapists, seeing clients at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in Richmond.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
