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.

Further information

I work in two dedicated Children's clinics with a warm and welcoming environment, alongside other children's therapists and practitioners.

I have worked as a doctor in child health for over 25 years, and also have my own children, so I find it easy to gain rapport with children and young people of all ages. I have developed an intuitive sense of how to approach child health and wellbeing concerns, and always establish an empathic relationship with parents.

In the UK Nutritional therapists are not specifically trained to work with children and families, so my skills are unique in this field.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
