About me

Poor diet and lifestyle choices in my 40’s resulted in weight issues and growing health problems. The option of medications was not appealing so I made changes to my diet and reduced stress levels. Results of these changes made such a difference to my own health and wellbeing, I altered my career direction to study and practice nutrition. This now enables me to assist others in achieving the benefits good nutrition and lifestyle changes can offer.

What Nutritional Therapy Offers You

Nutritional therapy is an individual-centred approach to healthcare which employs evidence based information to assist clients optimise well-being through diet and lifestyle changes.

Each of us put demands on our bodies which are capable of influencing the way in which they function. Poor diet, lack of activity, inadequate digestion, physical injuries, increasing age, genetics and stress all have the ability to challenge nutritional status and promote various symptoms.

Many clients are confused by conflicting advice within the media or exasperated by lack of support for their individual needs and find that Nutritional Therapy offers the guidance they need to make changes. For some just simple dietary changes are all it takes to achieve their objectives. Whereas other clients may need the additional support of functional tests such as stool analysis or detection of allergy or intolerances via serum testing to identify underlying issues, after which time steps can then be undertaken to help resolve issues and return the body to a state of balance.

There are those who value the advice offered within a personalised programme who may have greater nutritional demands. These may include some older adults where reduced appetite or a period of ill health has reduced vitality or those in which compromised digestion may be influencing other issues or reducing feelings of general wellbeing.
