Areas of Expertise
I have an MSc in Nutritional Therapy which means I have a thorough understanding of the science behind how the body works and the impact of diet and lifestyle on our physiology.
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition and lifestyle medicine sciences in the promotion of health, peak performance, and individual care.
My MSc dissertation looked at gluten-free diet in people with epilepsy and coeliac disease. I was thrilled that it was published in the peer-reviewed journal Gastrointestinal Orders as part of a Special Issue covering Coeliac Disease. You can read it here.
I am registered with both:
Nutritional Therapy recognises that each person is unique. I spend a lot of time getting to know you, how your life works and how to help it to work better. The recommendations I give you are tailored specifically for you. Think 'haute couture' not 'off the peg.' Nutritional Therapy is about balance, not perfection. No fixed diets or deprivation here. After all, food is love, care, community. I help you rethink nutrition so you can choose wellness. We can tweak this, add that. Small targeted changes really can make a huge difference.
Stress Prevention & Resilience Coaching
I will teach you how to prevent and reduce stress and overwhelm using a research backed approach. You will learn to listen to what your body is trying to tell you.
Return to calm, focus and clarity to support mental, emotional and physical health.
By better managing and combatting stress you will reduce anxiety, reduce inflammation, support your immune system, and increase energy.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) "Tapping"
EFT is an evidence-based therapy effective in addressing a range of issues such as: phobias, anxiety, depression, pain, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Eating Disorders.
EFT gets to the heart of self-limiting beliefs and resolves emotional blocks to success. EFT is a gentle, effective technique that is super simple to learn. It involves tapping on known acupuncture points and focussing on the issue that needs addressing.
Your body is talking, are you listening?
At the heart of my practice is Functional Medicine. I am looking for the root causes of health issues, not merely symptom management. This approach assesses nutritional status, environmental factors, exercise pattern, sleep efficiency and stress management to identify and address biochemical imbalances.
You are at the centre of the process. Not your symptoms or a part of your body. Your marvellous, amazing complicated body is a fantastic miracle that works in the most exquisite way, constantly interacting with the world around you. The food you eat is literally information for your cells. When we look holistically we begin to see what you can add to your life and what you can release to create an environment for you to flourish.
My work with you is bespoke to your needs and vision for your future. This is your health journey and you get to decide the destination. My knowledge, skills, coaching and support give you the actionable information and strategies you need to successfully reach your destination. I walk you through what you need to do so you can take those steps with the reassurance that if there are any tricky bits along the way, we'll tackle them together to find new solutions. These little steps lead to big results and I promise that when you reach your destination, it will be worth it.
To see real results, it's best to give your body time to heal, so a typical programme is around 3-months.
An initial 90 minute consultation
We'll have a thorough chat about your health goals, health history, what you typically eat, your foodie likes and importantly dislikes (I won't insist you eat food you hate!), and your lifestyle. Functional testing will recommended if appropriate, and only if it is necessary to inform my personalised recommendations to support your wellbeing.
45 minute follow-up appointment 1
We'll meet again to go through your plan together, so you understand what you'll be doing and how it is going to support your health. I want you to be 100% happy with your plan and look forward to following it. There is always room for negotiation. If there is anything you think you can't manage, don't worry we can tweak the plan. If you've ordered any tests, we'll go through the results together.
Follow-up appointment 2
We'll talk about how you're getting on and we can add to your programme if we need to, depending on the complexity of your case.
Further appointments can be arranged depending on need.
My hourly rate is £100 per hour.
Fees are calculated accordingly depending on length of consultation and research/test interpretation time.
