I am a fully Registered Nutritional Therapist; I completed a 3 year diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition at The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, which is fully accredited by the NTEC (Nutritional Therapy Education Commision). I accrued 200 hours of practical clinics as part of the course and I have been trained in the principles of functional medicine, a science based method that assesses the underlying causes of symptoms. I have subsequently completed further training with the world renowned Institute For Functional Medicine. I have more recently qualified as a Health Coach, in order to offer another level of support in conjunction to nutritional therapy to clients. I address any mindset and behavioural barriers which are often blocking change and achieving wellness and health goals. The combination of both modalities has been of great benefit to clients who are are able to achieve even better results .
I am also a Qualified Nurse and have been practicing in a variety of settings for 20 years. I am trained to degree level (BSc Hons) and have worked in recent years as an Independent Nurse Practitioner in Primary care whilst studying to become a Nutritionist. This additional skill provides me with a wealth of medical knowledge and a good understanding of what happens to the body when it is an imbalanced state. I can collaboratively work with your medical team/professionals.
I strive to keep up to date and continue to learn through courses and further training on a regular basis to enable me to provide the most recent evidence based therapy.
I am a member of the following Professional Bodies; The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) the only register in the UK to provide assurance to the public of an adherence to strict professional standards.
