Registered nutritional therapist and
As a nutritional therapist and health coach, I see people whose weight is starting to negatively impact their health. They're often tired all the time, get out of breath climbing the stairs and have aching joints. Then there's the midlife weight gain linked to menopause with symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia or night sweats.
Others have had a health check at their GP and been told they need to lose weight because of high cholesterol and blood pressure, or their blood sugar levels indicate they have pre-diabetes. Many have watched their parents or relatives suffer from ill health related to their weight and don't want the same to happen to them.
What do they have in common?
They all struggle to lose weight on their own.
I know how incredibly difficult it can be to lose weight and keep it off. I understand what it's like struggling with food addiction and the daily battle with willpower and never ending dieting. No one wants to live like this.
This is why I created my unique, easy to follow programmes for successful weight loss, combining nutritional therapy with health coaching and genetic testing. Using this completely personalised approach to weight loss, clients gain a deep insight into the causes of their weight gain and learn how to make lasting changes necessary to get the results they want.
You have within you the power to turn your health around.
I'm here to help you do that.
My clients find a renewed energy and optimism in their lives. They feel happier in their bodies, their overall health improves and they know what to do to keep their weight under control, permanently.
It was my own weight struggles and health issues (here) and those of my parents that led me to specialising in weight loss and healthy ageing in midlife.
Retaining my independence through to old age is of paramount importance to me and, I believe, it's what most of us want too.
Now is the time to start making changes that can have a
lasting impact on your health.
As a nutritionist and health and wellness coach, I can guide you through the steps needed to help you on the path towards better health.
My latest health check showed excellent blood sugar levels, a healthy cholesterol reading and ideal blood pressure. My weight has remained stable for more than 20 years. The nurse declared:
'Your records show your weight has been the same for the last 10 years. How do you do that?''
It doesn't happen by accident. I've had to work on getting my health back and I'd love to help you do the same.
Don't put off until tomorrow what you could do today.

Health & wellness coach certification
I originally learnt about the importance of health coaching for weight loss success with Zest 4 Life. I then took this further with an in depth health and wellness coaching course with the Institute of Health Sciences in Ireland. This course is certified by the UK Health Coaches Association and the International Coach Federation. Read more about health coaching on my About health coaching page.
Nutritional therapy diploma
I studied for a 3-year diploma course with the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in London where I gained a distinction in Naturopathic Nutrition which qualifed me to become a Nutritional Therapist. My studies included over 200 hours of clinic practice, observing and providing nutritional therapy to clients with a wide range of health issues. I regularly attend educational seminars, workshops and webinars to keep up to date with the latest research findings in health and nutrition. Read more about nutritional therapy on my About nutritional therapy page.
Nutrition advisor diploma
This was my first foray into gaining credentials in the nutrition field. It provided a thorough grounding into nutrition and food groups, diet and lifestyle and advising clients on healthy eating.
Nutrigenomics advisor certification
I became interested in genetics after finding out my 23andme results. This led me to studying nutrigenomics after my nutrition diploma. I am certified to advise clients on interpretation of their results and how best to support their gene SNPs through nutrition and lifestyle. I am certified with DNAfit and am also a registered practitioner with myDNAhealth and LifeCodeGX. I regularly attend educational seminars and webinars to keep up to date with the latest research. Read more about nutrigenomics and how finding out about your genes can help with supporting your health on my DNA testing page.
Gut transformation practitioner
Having spent many years with chronic IBS, I undertook a 6-week course with NutriAdvanced to become a certified gut practitioner. The course helped me gain a deeper, practical understanding into gut problems such as IBS, indigestion and food intolerances. Contact me if you are interested in participating this programme.
