About me

Hi! I’m Valeria and I am a registered nutritionist (RNutr) with the Association for Nutrition.

Are you tired or confused by all the non-sense and restrictive diets out there?

I get it, we all want to feel better inside out, and I can help you with that. My advice is science-based and tailored to you. My end goal is for you to reach a serene relationship to food and healthily balanced eating habits that work for YOU. This does not happen overnight, so if you are looking for a quick fix, I may not be your person. Long-lasting change takes time, but it is rewarding and I will support you throughout the journey.

Over the years I have gained a wide range of experience in working with people coming from all paths of life and with different lifestyles. So I understand the barriers to a healthy lifestyle you may be facing, as well as the hesitancy you may feel in making a change towards better health. My holistic and person-centred approach consists in supporting you to achieve your goals by helping you to gain the tools to live your best life without feeling overwhelmed or restricted by fad diets or other unrealistic standards.

I offer online nutrition consultations (on zoom).

Clients reviews

"I am very happy, because I feel better. I have a busy schedule and I’ve got kids too, so I don’t have much time to prepare food. But thanks to Valerie I learnt how to better cope with stressful times, to have and maintain a healthy and intuitive diet. No magic or strict diet, she kept it real." - Charlotte

"I would definitely recommend Valeria! I've tried many diets, and none ever worked. Valeria didn't give me a diet plan, she taught me how to improve my eating habits and have balance, with lifestyle tips too. She listened to me without judgement, and she very clearly answered all my questions. I feel much better now, I have more energy and I have lost some weight too."  - Janie

"Valeria is a very professional and friendly nutritionist, who listened to us without judging our eating habits. That was her starting point to discuss and to make tailored healthy changes. We found her approach very helpful to learn more healthy eating and how to improve our eating habits in a realistic way."  - Riccardo and Alessia

Healthy Inside Out - Workplace Talks (online and in person)

Healthy Inside Out is about empowering your employees to look after their health and wellbeing. Science-based education together with practical examples and an interactive approach are the elements used to support your employees in improving their eating habits and lifestyle. 

To be healthy at work is possible when you know how to do it. The benefits can positively impact employees’ life inside and out of work, also inspiring clients to better look after themselves.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am registered with the Association for Nutrition (registration number 20917). One of the important parts of my job is to keep updated with current nutrition science, policy and guidelines to ensure the best and safest practice. That is why every month I make time for formal learning, educational training and self-directed learning. Below you can see a list of core qualifications and trainings:

  • (BSc(Hons) Nutrition
  • Intuitive Eating (London ect)
  • Challenging Weight Stigma (PHS)
  • Behaviour change training
  • REHIS training

In addition to individual work, I have also a varied experience in the development and the running of group workshops (e.g. food and mood, women’s health groups, cooking clubs) for people across the lifespan (young adult to elderly). I have also developed and run an online course for facilitators (Good Food Good Health) teaching them the elements of nutrition, food hygiene and safety and how to communicate them effectively to others.
