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 am also a Qualified Nurse and have been practising 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 how the body works in an imbalanced state.
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 Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) .
