I am a fully insured, qualified and registered member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), accredited by the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and governed by the CNHC Code of Conduct.

The body is made up of multiple organ systems – for example, the digestive system, nervous system and reproductive systems. Nutritional Therapy is about looking at the whole body and all of these complex systems. If one system experiences an imbalance, other systems will become imbalanced too so we look at the bigger picture rather than individual symptoms. We take account of each client’s mental and physical health history, lifestyle, likes and dislikes and tailor each program accordingly. Occasionally, we might look at functional testing in order to look deeper into the root cause of a problem, using either tests available from the NHS, or private testing laboratories. We will implement nutritional and lifestyle changes designed to correct imbalances and to eventually achieve optimum wellness.

Nutritional Therapy can help with a multitude of symptoms, both specific and nonspecific. These are some of the areas that I can help with, but please do get in touch if you have a concern not listed below. If I can’t help, I will try to find you someone who can.

– General wellbeing
– Weight management
– Skin health
– Sleep support

– Stress support
– Hormonal health
– Digestive health
– Immune support
– Energy

Please note that Nutritional Therapy is not a substitute for conventional medicine and there may be situations in which I recommend that you see your GP as well as, or instead of, seeing me.

The ethos of a healthy lifestyle was instilled in me from a very early age. Some of my earliest memories are of helping my father in his vegetable patch – eating peas straight out of the pod, picking strawberries and raspberries and pulling up carrots. Growing up however, food seemed to become increasingly complicated, tied up in dialogue about body image and confused by a vast amount of unregulated, unsafe diet advice.

I fell into the trap of following numerous fad diets and – far from delivering the glow they promised, they instead made me miserable, lethargic and unhealthily preoccupied with food. It wasn’t until I was in my first year of the History PhD program at Oxford that I finally realised the negative effect that food was having on not only my body but also my mind, and I made the decision to leave the program and focus my passion for learning and research toward nutrition. I am now passionate about dispelling nutritional myths and educating my clients based on the latest scientific evidence.

Education, practicality and individuality lie at the core of my approach.

Education – I believe that understanding the science of what might be causing imbalances is key to making and maintaining nutritional changes. Explaining these physiological mechanisms is a key part of each consultation.

Practicality – if a nutritional program is going to work, it must be achievable. We will work together to come up with a realistic and practical step-by-step plan that will fit into your lifestyle.

Individuality – each client is unique, with unique chemical and physiological imbalances. A ‘one size fits all’ approach is therefore unlikely to be successful. Instead, we will come up with a plan specifically tailored to you.
