About me

Hello there.

My aim and motivation is to help educate and support clients in improving their health and lifestyle so that they may become the best version of themselves.

I work alongside clients to bring positive change in their quality of life. Together we look at enhancing or improving their food and lifestyle choices, drawing on functional testing and supplementation when required.

I believe that food should be simple, nutritious and energising but most of all – delicious and enjoyable!

Each individual is unique and therefore I recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

____________________________________________________________________

At least 48-hours prior to the intitial consultation, I’d ask that a 3-day food diary and health questionnaire be completed and returned to me. During the initial consultation I will assess your general health and symptoms, family and health history, dietary and lifestyle habits. Then with your goals in mind, an individual health and lifestyle plan can be devised. These may include dietary changes as well as nutritional supplementation if necessary.


Often interpretation of test results from a client’s GP may be necessary, and if appropriate we may also discuss functional diagnostic testing options which I can organise through a number of private laboratories. Some example tests include:


Comprehensive stool analysis
Gut function investigations
Parasitology
Stress (cortisol)
Female and male hormone panels
Food intolerance/sensitivity
Thyroid function
Full blood work
Vitamin status testing
General wellness testing

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.
