I have been a nutritional therapist for 17 years. For the last 15 years, I have been a consultant for Champneys Health Resorts.
My interest in Nutrition developed from a childhood of eating healthy fresh food on my parent's farm.
Since then I have added more variety to my diet i.e. pulses, rice, and nuts while reducing wheat and dairy which has helped me manage my weight.
I have had many challenges over the years including supporting World Vision in their 24hr fast in 2003 to helping a cyclist complete the Race Across America (RAAM) 2007.
I spent 1 year (2006) writing a health column for "Real People" magazine.
I was a regular contributory author for the online health website watchfit.com, for 2 years 2014- 2016. I also contribute towards articles in many national magazines. Most recently 2017 "Yours" and "Woman's Weekly." I have had 2 articles published in "The Optimum Nutrition Magazine" on Diet and Memory and Staying healthy in your Golden Years.
Nutritional therapy helps people of all ages. In particular digestive problems such as IBS and fatigue often respond well. While many people are desperately going on diets I help provide personal programmes that suit people according to their lifestyle and age.
I was awarded a BSc (Hons) in Nutrition and Food Science in 1996.
Then in 2000, I was awarded DipION from the Institute of Optimum Nutrition.
I am a member of the British Association of Applied and Nutritional Therapists (BANT).
I am also registered with the Complementary & Natural Health Council (CNHC).
I have helped over 5000 people face to face with 1-1 consultations including food intolerance testing and vitamin and mineral checks.
