What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy can help if you’re looking to lose weight, kick start a healthier way of life or are struggling with a specific health issue. It can be beneficial for hormonal imbalances, fertility support, digestive health, low energy, IBS, stress, menopause, blood sugar balance, general wellbeing and weight management.
I use the Functional Medicine approach to Nutritional Therapy, which focuses on discovering and addressing the root cause of disease rather than simply managing the symptoms. My approach is evidence-based, using a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may be contributing to your symptoms and health concerns.
Everybody is unique which is why I recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Rather than overwhelm you with big changes which can be daunting and unachievable, I believe that making small tweaks to your diet and lifestyle can lead to substantial and sustainable improvements.

What to expect
Before your first consultation, I will send you a health and nutrition questionnaire to complete including a 3-day food diary. The initial consultation typically lasts 75-90 minutes.
During the consultation I will ask you questions about your current health concerns, medical and family history, use of medication and supplements plus your health goals. We will then work together to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme with food choices that suit you and your lifestyle.
Depending on your needs, supplements and laboratory tests may be recommended such as stool analysis, hormone testing or nutrient profiles. These tests can provide useful additional information to help support your health goals and inform your plan.
During follow-up consultations we will review your progress and agree any necessary adjustments.
