A Qualified Nutrition Therapist

As a teenager I suffered with PMS, however did not take the pill, as prescribed by my GP. I burned the candle at both ends, I worked long hours, partied a lot, drank, slept erratically, skipped meals and ate junk food and was in an unhappy relationship, leading to years of chronic stress and increased symptoms of PMS. Throughout my twenties and early thirties, I experienced periods of poor health, fatigue along with ongoing gut issues leading me to carry out a functional test which uncovered low levels of beneficial bacteria and an overgrowth of Candida. I used conventional medicines repeatedly to treat the candida without success with my health continuing to deteriorate. My ill health led me to investigate general health and well-being, through which I began to adapt my diet and lifestyle helping me to rapidly regain my health and vitality.

In 2012, I got pregnant with my daughter, when it was established that I had developed thyroid cancer, this resulted in me having my thyroid removed followed by two years of hormonal imbalance, however I was able to support my system appropriately through this difficult period with adapting my diet and lifestyle. My personal experiences stimulated a passion for complementary medicine, nutrition and diet. I completed a degree in nutrition, however my thirst for knowledge, especially around chronic diseases led me to complete a Master’s degree in Nutrition, followed by my diploma in Nutrition Therapy.

The path to becoming a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist took many years to complete, understanding the science behind nutrition and the physiological effects that different foods can have on the human body has completely changed the way I approach life and has driven a desire in me to share my knowledge in order to help others suffering ill health through nutritional deficiencies or imbalances.

Having completed my studies at the world-renowned CNELM in Wokingham, which offered me a very high-standard of education, I relished the whole process of immersing myself in the world of nutrition. I now feel very privileged to be able to help people realise their potential of good health. I love to talk to people either on a one-to-one basis or deliver a workshop. As a certified Nutritional Therapist, I am fully insured and a registered member of B.A.N.T (British Association of Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy) and CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) as well as training as a Health Coach. I attend regular seminars, courses and workshops to keep up to date with the ever evolving scientific research in health and nutrition.
