Registered Nutritional Therapist

mBANT, CNHC

When a family member was diagnosed with breast cancer it led me to research the links between diet and health. The books and articles I read inspired me to want to study the subject further and to pursue a career as a Nutritional Therapist. 

As a female I have always been interested in the way diet impacts our hormonal health and want to help women embrace the different life stages. Having experienced many issues myself such a PMS, miscarriage, breast lumps and night sweats I draw upon my life experiences and training to help women rediscover their balance.  

I have a personal connection to multiple sclerosis so have a special interest in autoimmune diseases and have undertaken extra training in this area. My passion to keep my loved one as healthy as possible means that I am always reading the latest research in this area. 

I love food and creating delicious recipes so I enjoy the challenge of helping clients make the necessary changes to their diet whilst keeping the food interesting and tasty. 

I follow the principles of functional Medicine which sees the body as a whole, integrated system, focussing on causes rather than symptoms of ill-health, using lifestyle changes (diet and nutrition, exercise, sleep and relaxation) as central to recovery. It is scientifically evidence based, and works very well alongside  conventional medicine, and is a very effective tool, especially for chronic disease. 

I have completed a BSc degree in Nutritional Therapy, qualifying in 2012. I am a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT) and am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I adhere to the BANT code of conduct and I am committed to continued professional development by attending lectures, seminars and keeping up to date on research.

 

Some of the additional training I have undertaken includes:

  • Female Hormones - the menstrual years

  • Female Hormone Balance

  • Nutritional Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis with Lucille Leader

  • Autoimmune Diseases

  • Autoimmunity IHCAN Conference

  • A Functional Medicine Approach to Autoimmunity

  • An Audience with Dr Terry Wahls 

  • Testing for Chronic Hidden Infections

  • Abundant Energy

  • FODMAPs

  • Cancer and Nutrition Course
