What I do
After experiencing the positive impact of eating the right foods and improving my lifestyle 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 a few years later. I am now a member of BANT (British Association of Nutritional Therapists) and registered with CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council).
I apply a functional medicine approach. I believe ill health is the result of imbalances: your body has either too much or too little of something. 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. I have many tools to help me figure that out: we start the first session discussing your symptoms and medical history, I look for signs on your skin, face, hair, nails, tongue and finally we can run tests through the NHS or privately.
I also use health coaching a lot. In my experience, giving clients a plan is not enough to get them the best results. It is only when I accompany them on their journey and use specific coaching tools we get the best results. My active use of coaching techniques differentiates my practice from the other Nutritional Therapists.
I took me 35 years to start making my health a priority. As a result I missed out on a lot, because I was always too tired to enjoy myself or to have exciting projects. It's only when I prioritised my own health and wellbeing that my life started. First I built the foundations: I found my husband, had a son and built a fulfilling career. Then I pursued other exciting projects such as visiting the US national parks with our 8-month old baby, or hiking the Mont Blanc with our 23-month old toddler.
As long as you are healthy nothing is impossible, neither mentally nor physically.
My mission is to help you experience the best life can offer. 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. But thanks to my study and research, I know that having the right nutrition can make all or 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, enjoy every single day, and never let your health get in the way.
