Every one of us has a Health Story
…and we are tuned into the individual habits of our own bodies. Some of us have niggling symptoms, whilst others may be suffering with chronic illness and pain. In my clinic I see men and women of all ages with a whole host of health complaints including digestive imbalance, poor skin, low energy and fatigue, hormonal imbalance, aching joints and many more.
My passion is to empower you to understand your health.
What are your symptoms telling us about your underlying systems?
What is your body lacking and what does it need?
With this understanding in place I give practical, hands-on advice to help you understand how to support and maintain your health. I focus on promoting health through food and lifestyle and the use of food state nutritional supplements when required.
I have a Degree in Botany with Microbiology (University of Nottingham) and a Doctorate in Molecular Biology (University of Nottingham) which supports my understanding of how the body functions and its numerous metabolic pathways.
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Holistic Nutritional Practice from the College of Holistic Health and Nutrition.
I am a full member of the Naturopathic Nutrition Association (NNA) and an associate member of the General Naturopathic Council (GNC).
I am also a GAPS practitioner. Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAP Syndrome or GAPS)™ is a condition which establishes a connection between the functions of the digestive system and the brain. This term was created by Dr Natasha Campbell–McBride, MD, MMedSci (neurology), MMedSci (human nutrition).
I am committed to Continuing Professional Development and I regularly attend conferences and seminars to keep up-to-date with the very latest in nutritional research. I am currently taking a training sabbatical to further my Nutritional Therapy training.
I work with clients of all ages and a broad spectrum of health complaints. My specialist interests are helping people seeking to regain digestive balance, understand food intolerance’s and who are looking to restore energy levels.
Our Health Story
I re directed my career into Nutritional Therapy having witnessed the power of this approach in helping my daughter to recover from unexplained fatigue.
From infancy she struggled with severe asthma, eczema and a growing spectrum of allergies and intolerances. Her health started to deteriorate when she was 10 with recurrent tonsillitis, Glandular Fever and she was finally diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I did what every parent does when their child is ill and put my energies into research. I discovered Nutritional Therapy and within a few weeks my daughter was able to return to school as we steadily rebuilt her health over the next few months.
Nutrition has been transformational for our family as we all have a history of asthma, eczema and digestive issues. With three young children we were regular visitors at the health clinic and their immunity was very low. However, in the eight years that we have been actively optimising our nutrition a trip to the doctor is a rare occurrence.
