Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy applies nutritional science to promote health, peak performance and individual care. Our therapists use a range of tools to assess and identify potential imbalances and how these contribute to symptoms and health concerns. This approach addresses nutritional balance and helps support the body to maintain health. It is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking to enhance their health and wellbeing.

How we work

Our nutritional therapists offer a personalised approach to nutrition and lifestyle. We develop a tailored programme to help transform your relationship with food, achieve goals and manage dietary-based chronic complaints. We advise what to eat and support you to make changes.

Our therapists are members of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT) and of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

The benefits of nutritional therapy

  • Improved energy levels
  • Weight management (if desired)
  • Address dietary related health concerns
  • Develop positive healthy eating habits
Registered Nutritional Therapists consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Registered Nutritional Therapists never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided. bant.org.uk

Meet our Nutritional Therapists

Specialist areas IBS and other gastrointestinal disorders, chronic disease management, health optimisation, food sensitivities, autoimmune conditions, weight loss, pre and post pregnancy health and children’s health.

I have always had an an interest in food and cooking and when I was diagnosed with 'IBS' in my 20s my interest in food to took me to look at food as medicine. After improving my own condition through dietary changes I went on to get my BSc (Honours) in Nutritional Therapy from the University of Westminster. I have 10 years experience as Registered Nutritional Therapy practitioner, and have seen first-hand how diet and lifestyle changes can make such a positive difference to our health and wellbeing. I am also on the BBC’s panel of nutritionists and have appeared on numerous radio shows.

Now more than ever it is clear that one size does not fit all when it comes to our health, so it’s important to understand your individual balance. The body is amazingly complex and no one part of it works alone, so I aim to bring together my knowledge of nutrition, supplements and functional testing with a detailed understanding of how food works with the body to improve your health. I work using the Functional Medicine model and keep up to date with current research in health and nutrition. I aim to concentrate primarily on diet but I also have a very extensive knowledge of nutritional products and supplements to help support my patients.

Specialist areas: Personal Training, Pilates, Nutritional Therapist, Sports and Soft Tissue Massage, Postural Assessment and Corrective Exercise.

I have a long-standing interest in health and fitness. My journey started in my teenage years when I ran for my county. I also developed a keen interest in how the body works and how nutrition supports health. I took a degree in Physiology and Nutrition and later became a Nutritional Therapist.  As I have developed and matured so has my approach to exercise. I am a Soft Tissue and Sports Massage Therapist, a Personal Trainer and Pilates teacher. An emphasis on technique, optimum nutrition, active recovery and adequate rest has helped me to feel healthier, stronger and more energetic. I can help you become a more effective and confident exerciser with an all-around approach to help the body move better.
