REGISTERED NUTRITIONAL THERAPIST CNHC
REGISTERED NUTRITIONIST MBANT
I'm lucky to do what I love and to have found my passion as a nutritional therapist. I've learnt some valuable skills along the way (my career started in media, and I've been a teacher and worked for a charity).
I grew up in a health-conscious family. From an early age I understood that certain foods were 'good for me' and that others were less so. But it wasn't until I started really thinking about nutrition in my mid-20s that I began to tune into how the food I ate made me feel.
I was working long hours in a demanding job, when I started to make the connection between stress and my physical health. I worked with a nutritional therapist, followed her recommendations and within a few months, the symptoms of hormonal imbalance I had been living with for years had resolved. I had also developed a new appreciation for the impact of food and lifestyle on my health as a whole.
My experience was so profound that it inspired me to study nutritional therapy.
I specialise in women's health and have 3 years' training in naturopathic nutrition. My particular area of interest is how food and lifestyle affect our hormones and everything they impact on - including our emotions, moods, energy levels and cycles.
Often, longstanding symptoms are closely linked with external and environmental factors. As well as how and what we eat, these can include the quality of our sleep, emotional stress, our home or work environments and the ways we move our bodies.
I also have a keen interest in skin. I know that as an outward sign of internal imbalances, skin conditions like acne and eczema can be what finally prompt women to address longstanding health niggles. Skin issues can also go hand in hand with symptoms like PMS, stress and digestive problems, and the psychological impact of skin problems can also contribute to other symptoms.
I use a range of different strategies and techniques to support, motivate and empower you to address your health concerns.
