Food is one of the most powerful tools we have for feeling well and staying healthy
Whether you want to improve your general health or you’re dealing with a specific condition, nutritional therapy can help. Feeling continuously exhausted or having constant niggling symptoms may feel “normal” but you don’t have to put up with feeling “not quite right”.
If you want to improve your mood, sort out your digestive issues, increase your energy or get to the bottom of your migraines, acne, weight or other issues, a good nutrition and lifestyle programme will make a huge difference to how you feel.
I've always loved good food and after having children I became increasingly curious about the relationship between what we eat and how we feel. This relationship might seem like common sense but the disconnect for most of us is still profound.
I've always been struck by the amount of contradictory information available around food and health and I really wanted to understand the science behind it and research the evidence to find some real answers. This led me to embark on an intensive 3 year naturopathic nutritional therapy course at The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.
I'm deeply passionate about nutrition and mental and physical wellbeing and I continue to research this fascinating and ever evolving field.
I am a fully qualified nutritional therapist having qualified at The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.

Nutritional Therapy is a science-based, individualised approach to health and
well-being which views the body as a whole as opposed to a set of separate
By addressing the root causes of the symptoms, nutritional therapy looks to
restore balance and optimal health. A nutritional therapist assesses and
identifies not only nutritional imbalances but also emotional and physical
imbalances that may be contributing to someone’s health issues.
"There is no one-size-fits-all approach"
Nutritional therapy can be used to prevent illness as well as to support and
restore health during or post-illness. As a complementary therapy it can be used alongside and to support conventional medicine. It is relevant for those with all sorts of chronic conditions as well as individuals looking to enhance their health and well-being.
A nutritional therapist recognises that everyone is unique so there’s no “one size fits all” approach. Personalised and tailored nutrition and lifestyle plans are created which support the body back to optimal health.
Nutrition and lifestyle changes can feel overwhelming and nutritional advice is often contradictory or confusing. Fads and contradictory food trends are often poorly informed. My evidence based approach cuts through this. What’s right for one person may be very different to what’s right for you.
Food is one of the most powerful tools we have for feeling well and staying healthy but due to the frenetic pace of our hectic lives many of us have forgotten this. I help clients make the link between diet, lifestyle and how you feel, empowering and educating you to make informed decisions about your health.
"Good nutrition is about embracing
and enjoying good food"
I aim to make healthy living achievable, providing practical plans that work for clients differing lifestyles, no matter how busy they are. I’ll support and guide you through manageable changes that will ultimately help you feel better, both physically and emotionally.
Good nutrition is about embracing and enjoying good food rather than embarking on a restrictive regime. I’ll suggest healthy alternatives to the foods that aren’t working for you, provide easy ways to incorporate them into your life and show you how to make a healthy lifestyle enjoyable and achievable without you feeling deprived.
I'm based in South East London and see clients all over the area (including Chislehurst, Bromley, Petts Wood, Bickley, Orpington, East Dulwich and Dulwich) as well as in Central London. Consultations take place at Deva Yoga in Chislehurst but I also see clients remotely via Zoom.
After making your appointment, I’ll send you a questionnaire and a 3-day diet diary for you to fill in. Please send me your completed forms 48 hours before your consultation.
Your first consultation will last up to 90 minutes and will be an in-depth look at your current diet and lifestyle. I’ll take a full case history and spend time discussing the functioning of each of the body systems. This will enable me to build a detailed picture of your health, both past and present. My goal is always to identify the root causes underlying health problems, rather than just suppressing symptoms.
After each consultation, I provide a detailed nutrition and lifestyle plan that will suit your individual set of circumstances. This will include dietary recommendations, meal ideas and lifestyle recommendations.
£120 for an initial consultation (up to 90 mins)
£75 for a follow-up consultation (45 minutes). Appointments will be scheduled 4-6 weeks after your initial consultation
Discounts are offered when consultations are bought together:
Initial consultation and one follow up - £185
Initial consultation and two follow ups - £250
Nutrition Package £300 (8 -12 week support plan)
It can be challenging to form new habits and it can take time to establish them. The best way to get results is to work with clients over a number of weeks. This package offers on-going support, guidance and motivation.
90 minutes initial appointment
2 follow up consultations
Weekly email support
2 x 20 minute phone/skype calls
Once your appointment is booked, please make sure you give at least 24 hours notice of cancellation otherwise a 50% cancellation fee will still be applicable.
"My daughter had been unwell for eighteen months and was experiencing stomach aches daily and feeling increasingly nauseous after food. In turn, she wasn't sleeping well and was feeling tired and lethargic which was affecting her daily activities and mood. We had tried cutting foods out and adding foods in but could not get it right.
Charlotte spent time with my daughter understanding what was happening and was very easy to talk to. Very quickly, she advised changes to her diet that were easy to apply, healthy meal plan ideas, recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks and within a few days she was feeling like a different person. No stomach aches, no sickness and her energy levels were returning to what you would expect from someone young and fit.
We could not believe how quickly this happened and can not thank Charlotte enough for her very kind approach, her understanding nature and her amazing meal plans and advice on small changes that made a massive difference. My daughter had suffered for years and now with Charlotte's magic it's all gone and it really has changed her life. I too had a number of consultations with Charlotte and feel like a new person. I can not recommend Charlotte enough."
“I had the pleasure of working with Charlotte and can’t recommend her highly enough. I have always had a negative and unhealthy relationship with food, addicted to sugar and caffeine. I had no idea what my body needed and the impact the choices was having on my health and my mood. I really wanted to set a better example for my kids and start to enjoy food rather than be embarrassed by it.
Having worked with Charlotte I came away achieving my goals and more, I felt less anxious, I actually had more energy, began cooking with the kids, and I even achieved some of my running and cycling personal bests. I just wished I had worked with her sooner.”
"I first met Charlotte eight weeks after the birth of my daughter and 2.5 stone heavier than pre-pregnancy (Boo!!). Having always felt as though I’ve lived on a diet, I wanted to find a more sustainable weight management approach and help to get back to pre-pregnancy weight without starving myself and skipping meals.
After our very first session it became very clear that there were going to be so many more benefits than just weight management and very quickly I had more energy, was sleeping better, had improved skin quality and my eczema was significantly improved. Charlotte is so knowledgeable and has the ability to make you feel relaxed and at ease. Her ability to recommend supplements, recipes, books and healthy options has been immensely helpful - we find ourselves experimenting and trying new things daily.
Four months after our first meeting, I am 1.5 stone lighter, I feel so much stronger than before and finally feel in control with a very healthy relationship with food. Thanks, Charlotte, this had made such a difference to my family and I."
"I sought Charlotte's advice to give an overall boost to my body and immune system. I have a couple of conditions and I believe that improving my nutrition helps with them and even contributes to healing from them. While my diet was not a particularly bad one before I met Charlotte, she gave me a lot of advice on how I can further improve it to achieve my aim.
The consultation with her was excellent. It was exactly what I needed. She listened to me and asked a lot of questions in order to fully understand the situation. The advice she gave on how and what to change in my diet showed me that she is a true expert in her field. I could feel the effect of the change in my diet almost immediately.
Two weeks after starting the new diet I went on a long-haul business trip and I felt significantly more energetic, focused and it was much easier to deal with the effects of the jet lag too, compared to previous trips. It's now several months that I follow the diet recommended by Charlotte and my conditions have improved considerably. I would definitely recommend her."
