About Me.

I’m a working mum of two experiencing the same everyday challenges of life as most people. In 2011, I decided to embark on a career change after years in the corporate world. During those years I’ve seen first-hand the affect a busy professional life can have on women and how that can affect their performance and their overall health and wellbeing. In fact, I experienced that myself, too tired to plan, too busy to eat properly and too many priorities to spend time on me.

I retrained at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London which enabled me to become registered with The British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council practitioner registers.

I work from my private clinic in Leicester and hold remote sessions UK wide.

Nutritional Therapy

Today, many illnesses, including chronic long term conditions, are accepted to be the result of lifestyle choices. Using the latest nutritional science, nutritional therapy works to restore nutrient imbalances in the body.

The process of nutritional therapy is a complex web of interconnected factors. Every individual will have their own unique health state and it is the challenge of the nutritional therapist to consider how multiple factors are contributing to the symptoms being experienced and work out the root cause.  Therefore, nutritional therapy  should provide personalised solutions.   Nutrition is only one piece of the jigsaw puzzle, but it is a vitally important one.

If appropriate we work alongside GP’s, primary care workers and other specialists to achieve a multi disciplinary approach.

As a Registered Nutritional Therapist I apply functional medicine principle in my clinic. I practice a food first approach where supplements and lab testing may follow.  There are a few cases where huge benefits may be gained by starting with this approach.

Specialist Nutritional Services

I have a special interest in autoimmune conditions, gut issues, and female hormone symptoms.

These are very specialised areas and whilst working to improve your overall diet may bring some relief to the symptoms you are experiencing; a much more detailed and personalised approach is required. In these cases, professional supplements maybe recommended. These contain higher doses of nutrients than is commonly available on the high street. There is also a range of testing options which can add huge benefit to finding a solution. Testing is not compulsory but may be useful.

If you’re not sure whether your symptoms fall into these areas, I’d be happy to have a free 20 mins consultation with you to discuss this.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can diet really effect how I feel?

Absolutely. Eating the right foods can improve  your energy, mental wellbeing, immunity, give you happy female hormones, give you a happy gut, improve your brain, give you strong bones, muscles, hair, nails and skin and help to prevent premature aging and chronic long term disease.

If my GP can’t help, can food make a difference?

Nutritional therapists work from a completely different perspective to traditional medicine. I aim to address the root cause of your symptoms. My recommendations are backed by science and provide amazing results.

What is a superfood?

Superfoods are foods which are packed full of a particular nutrient which is proven to be beneficial. Examples include blueberries, kale, green tea and many other. However, do not consume these at the expense of a varied rainbow diet.
