Therese Conlon-Barratt DipNT mBANT mCNHC
Hi my name is Therese I am a registered Nutritional Therapist with governing body CNHC and professional body BANT specifically for nutritionists’ qualified in scientific and clinical practice.
My passion lies in supporting people with issues such as weight gain, cardiovascular health, blood sugar balance and I.B.S conditions.
My curiosity in nutrition started when I developed I.B.S in my 20’s and genetic hypertension in my 30’s, both of which I decided to manage through diet and exercise. Without fully realising it was at this point the seed of interest in ‘food as medicine’ commenced, later leading to research into how food can heal, mastering healthy cooking, pursuing a qualification in personal training and the ultimate accomplishment in spending three years at the College of Naturopathic Medicine passing with distinction.
I believe that each of us can find health through uncomplicated nutrition. I don’t believe in faddy diets that are short-lived, demotivating and conflicting. My aim is to bring the attention back to good honest food and how it can nourish, bring inner balance and happiness. Every plan is unique to each person because we are all biochemically different therefore what works for one may not work for another. My work involves up-to-date evidence based research providing you with reliable safe practice.
My Passion for helping people:
My passion lies in helping my clients take control of their own health and happiness. I get to know them through detailed case taking, design a personalised plan specific to their needs and from there, encourage and support them to reach their health goal. Not only do I give them the initial advice and tools but if they require added support throughout the journey I am there to guide them step by step.
Cardiometabolic syndrome is close to my heart because for 20 years I have been managing my own health, during this time, even managed to reduce my medication dosage – something quite unusual in genetic hypertension. I also continue to reduce the risk of developing related conditions and I want to share my success and knowledge so others like you can benefit.
What to expect:
Before an initial consultation I will ask you to complete and return a nutrition and lifestyle questionnaire along with a five day diet diary. This is an overview of your health history and present concerns.
An initial consultation lasts approximately 90 minutes during which time I will ask questions regarding your diet, symptoms, medical and family history, present lifestyle and medication/supplement intake. It may also consist of body composition measurements pressure check.
From there I will develop your personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan within two days from the initial consultation. This will then be sent either by email or post
Follow up consultations last 50-60 minutes and takes place 6-8 weeks from the initial consultation.
During this session I will check your progress and make any necessary adjustments. Some people may need a second or third follow up depending on their situation.

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.
I offer initial, followup or package consultations from my clinic in Redhill and Reigate. I also offer home visits within a 10 mile radius or via Skype/Facetime.
Please contact me direct for more information on fees.
Clients tell me I have a caring nature, a friendly outlook and show a genuine desire to help them. This makes me happy to think my enthusiasm, reliability and respect for people is portrayed in this manner encouraging my clients to feel comfortable opening up to me.
