I have been a nutritional therapist for 16 years. For the last 14 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. Helping people 50 plus to feel great especially now I have reached that milestone.
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 am now a contributory author for the online health website watchfit.com, you can find direct links to my articles on Facebook and Twitter. I have provided technical advice for magazines such as "Woman's Own", "Prima" & "Yours". I am also a guest contributory author for "The Optimum Nutrition Magazine."
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 Scienece 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 Complimentary 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.
