My Philosophy

I operate from a completely no judgement space, having had several health issues of my own to contend with over the last decade. I want you to enjoy food, and to feel your absolute best - whether that means more energy, better skin health, stable digestion or achieving your healthiest weight.

Eating should be enjoyable. There I said it. It should not fill you with dread because of a digestive system that isn't working properly, or a fear of whether a food will make you 'fat'. Food is fuel, and the right balance and types of food should have you feeling and looking your best. I do not believe any food warrants the term 'good' or 'bad' or that foods you enjoy should be permanently 'off limits'.

My aim is to help you redefine your relationship with food (and sometimes yourself). Personalised nutrition is essential. None of us are the same, we have very different nutritional requirements and needs, as well as likes and dislikes. If you absolutely HATE kale, don't force yourself to eat something you can't stand. That's a sure fire way to start loathing meals and developing a negative attitude to eating. Let's work together to find some foods that benefit your health that you really do enjoy!

Biography

I am a registered Nutritional Therapist (NT) with 5 years clinical experience. I have been trained in Functional Medicine principles towards supporting health and am always looking to determine the root imbalance and easiest way to correct this with my clients. I have worked with hundreds of clients over several years on a variety of health conditions, and my training and experience – combined with my compassion and realistic view of health – makes me a well-prepared partner for you in your journey towards better physical and mental health.

I graduated from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in 2012 and have been in practice ever since. I am currently studying for my Masters degree in Advanced Nutrition Research and Practice, with a focus on individual carbohydrate tolerance and the gut micro biome. I am a BANT member and CNHC registered, and I hold full professional indemnity insurance.

I was lead nutrition practitioner for Foresight Preconception for 4 years, giving me valuable experience in preconception and fertility support as well as the barriers both men and women can face in their quest for optimal health and conception. I still offer Hair Mineral Analysis tests for clients wishing to explore their health and fertility using Foresight’s optimised ranges, these tests are now available to my private clients who work with me.

In 2016-2017 I had the pleasure of working for a VIP client in the Middle East for a year as a personal nutritional therapist, travelling the world as we worked together to try different cuisine and to support a healthier attitude to nutrition.

I have worked for international luxury retreat company, Bodhimaya, as their functional food expert and chef on several retreats in the glorious South of France and I adore getting creative in the kitchen. After all, healthy food has to taste good!
