A Little Bit About Me
Where My Nutritional Therapist Journey Began
My interest in nutritional health was not immediate – it was a process. At home, food was always provided for me and I had no involvement in the planning or cooking. When I went off to university I had no idea what I should be eating and didn’t really think about it until I started to lose energy, feel very sluggish and gain weight. Coupled with the fact that I carried out a significant piece of research in my final year, showing the effect of food on concentration and performance in children, I began to think I needed to make some changes. Without any firm understanding of how or what to cook, I mindlessly followed what everyone else was doing and that certainly wasn’t the balanced nutrition plan that I talk to clients about now!
I left university with a thirst for some “foody" knowledge. What should I be eating for better health? What should I be avoiding? There wasn’t that much information around, only fads such as drastic calorie cutting or the high protein diet. There had to be a more intelligent approach. It was at this point, I came across a leading nutrition expert who made so much sense, I was mesmerised - I passionately launched into five years of academic training (a further degree) and the rest, as they say, is history.
Having lost weight and full of renewed energy I am ready to help you, your family and friends and want to share my knowledge so that you too can take responsibility for your health in order to achieve your optimum wellbeing.
My Nutritional Education and Qualifications
Whilst my postgraduate and future work was in teacher training, my fascination with food never wavered; nor did my want to educate. Some years later, I put these two things together and after four years studying at The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, I was able to begin working as a Nutritional Therapist from my base in Cheshire. I am also a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and a registered Zest4Life practitioner specialising in weight loss.
Since 2012 and back in Cheshire, I have been able to educate and empower others with supportive, compassionate and transformative nutritional therapy.
Understanding the Power of Food with Nutritional Therapy
The internet holds a wealth of knowledge. However, when it comes to nutrition the research can be overwhelming, conflicting and often very generalised - meaning it doesn’t work for you. This is where nutritional therapy can help. Whether for yourself, your family or your employees, nutritional therapy has the power to transform lives by identifying personal nutritional imbalances and making positive changes to enable optimal health.
My Goals as a Nutritional Therapist
As an experienced Nutritional Therapist, I am still astounded by the power of food. For good and for bad, the things we pass into our mouths have profound effects on the body and through years of study and clinical practice, I have made it my mission to share these effects and create bespoke nutrition plans for optimum health. I want as many people as possible to know that not only do we all deserve to feel comfortable in our bodies and to live a full, healthy life, but that with the help of a Nutritional Therapist, we can all achieve this.
Nutritional therapy is a journey that we can take together. Fall in love with food that loves you too.
