What I do
After experiencing how eating the right foods and improving my lifestyle transformed my health, I became eager to learn more. about it. I enrolled in Naturopathic Nutrition at CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine) in London and qualified as a Nutritional Therapist three years later. I am now a member of BANT (British Association of Nutritional Therapists) and registered with CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council).
As a Nutritionist, I always use a functional medicine approach to uncover the root cause of your issue(s). I believe ill health is the result of imbalances: your body has either too much or too little of something and struggles to compensate. Signs and symptoms are your body’s way to let you know something is going on. Sometimes all it needs is a tweak to your diet, other time you need a more in-depth overhaul. We dedicate the first session to finding this potential cause, reviewing your past medical history, family history, how your 12 body systems are functioning, before finishing with your diet and lifestyle. I also look for common signs on your skin, face, hair, nails, tongue and we can run tests through the NHS or privately. My goal is to find out the root cause of this disruption so that we can work on it and get you back on track.
As a Health Coach, I am using a number of tools to help you implement all the recommended suggestions. Having the perfect programme is of no use if you can’t work out how to make it work for you. I accompany my clients with ongoing support because this is the only way to get the best results. This active use of coaching techniques differentiates my practice from the nutritionists.
I missed the first 35 years of my life being too unwell or exhausted to enjoy anything. It's only when I took action to prioritise my health and wellbeing that my life started: I found my husband, had a son and built a fulfilling career as a nutritionist.
Once you are healthy, nothing is impossible, neither mentally nor physically.
I know what it is to have low energy, be overweight, and have symptoms that doctors cannot seem to help with. I have been there for too long. I also know that having the right nutrition and lifestyle can make a substantial difference in your life, especially in the management of chronic conditions where traditional medicine seems to be so powerless despite all the available medications.
I want to help you to make the most of life. I want to help you enjoy every single day, and never let your health or diet get in the way.
