I am a highly motivated and experienced practitioner and have been in private practice since 1996, I have more than 30 years experience in the healthcare environment on a clinical level. I am a Registered General Nurse and a professionally qualified Nutritional Therapist who trained with The Plaskett Nutritional Medicine College. I am registered with BANT and CHNC and have been involved in the professional training of both Nutritional Therapists and Homeopaths.
One of the reasons I am so passionate about complementary therapies is that they not only encourage us to take responsibility for our own health and well-being, but that they can help empower us to lead more fulfilling and rewarding lives as well.
My own interest in Nutritional Therapy was born from suffering with allergies and food intolerances when I was studying nursing. After an extended period of being unwell, I sought the advice of an Aromatherapist. to help alleviate my symptoms; she was the first person to suggest that the food I was eating might have some bearing on my health. As a result I made changes to my diet which had a significantly beneficial effect on not only my symptoms but my sense of well being and energy levels as well – my passion for complementary therapies was born!
I have strong interest in health promotion, maintaining health and in understanding how function at a cell level impacts on our health and well-being. Understanding cell function through the study of Nutrigenomics and the Methylation Cycle have been very exciting developments in the field of nutrition which enable the practitioner to design truly unique treatment protocols to support the health and well-being of their clients. I provide a holistic approach to Nutritional Therapy which is naturopathic and focuses completely on you as an individual. My assessment includes not only your diet, but I will also look in depth at your symptoms, medical and life history, potential emotional factors, stress and lifestyle issues, all of which play a vital role in your health and well-being. Following your consultation you will receive a personalized dietary programme and supplement recommendation sheet along with detailed handouts to inform you and help you to make the changes as easily as possible. Support is available in between consultations should you need it.
