Food is one of the most powerful tools we have for feeling well and staying healthy
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.
Diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition, The College of Naturopathic Medicine, 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
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. I'm also available for Skype consultations.
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
