My Approach

I provide my clients a step by step support plan with regular phone and Skype calls between appointments,  to support them whilst they make the necessary changes needed  along side their individualised programme.  

I provide  mentoring  which offers clients valuable information about the foods that are right for them and use food as medicine. I use my love of world food and its emended healing properties to make a positive impact on people’s well being and lives.  Helping people discover the healing property of foods.  

My holistic approach  promotes wellbeing and health for any stage of life such as preconception, bump, tots, teens & in later life.  

My Journey

I come from a family with lots of intolerances and sensitivities and my mum inspired my curiosity and love of food. I saw how creatively  she catered for everyones needs using the same ingredients.   This experience was incredibly useful  during the time I worked with children who lived away from their families and I focussed on their wellbeing through good food; nurturing them emotionally, spiritually and supporting them to achieve  developmental milestones.  New research has now provided greater insight on the important connection between our gut, brain and stomach and how fundamental it is to our whole wellbeing .

The course I choose used a Naturopathic approach and my love of whole foods and a holistic way of life.  I began my training after my second child  was 2 and learnt about biodynamic food and the health benefits of eating seasonally.  I learnt about traditional Chinese medicine and the importance of organ health and how to support clients optimise their well sing using food as medicine.  I continue to attend relevant CPD courses, training events and Practitioner seminars as we continue to learn the benefits of natural food and the many ways we synthesise and utilise food for our better health at all the key stages of life.  I wanted to become  better informed on the principles of good Nutrition to grow healthy children to teach them the importance of eating well.  During my training I learnt a lot about Natural Nutrition and became even more passionate about vitality rich food and helping others optimise their health and wellbeing goals.

I introduced one change at a time for myself and gradually, over four years learnt the principles of Naturopathic Nutrition which are essential to staying well and healthy.

I still love food and cook most of my meals freshly each day  – I share the principles of how I cook during my cookery classes and use a number of key ingredients to make food versatile and interesting.   All of the recipes and advice I share are based on my own dietary habits for myself and my family and my heritage as some have been handed down in my own family which uses Ayurvedic natural herbs. 

How I work for clients?

In a typical Natural Nutrition consultation, I assess the individual’s general health, family and health history, any hereditary factors or illness, dietary  and eating habits and  hear about their digestive function, lifestyle and wellbeing needs.

Having this information helps me devise a bespoke dietary and lifestyle plan for the individual’s unique circumstances and the many ways I can help them address their health goals.  I use a step by step plan for dietary adjustments and recommendations.  I give guidance and options to make the agreed dietary and  lifestyle changes and include the food or supplements  needed to accompany my recommendations. I often use  the principles of Metabolic Balance® Programme for weight loss clients and draw on my Systemic Family Therapy and Social Work Training  to support food related issues when people feel stuck.

Some of the functional tests that I may use to support clients: 

Comprehensive Blood and Hormone Testing

Food intolerance/sensitivity
