I have been a nutritional therapist for 19 years and recently (June 2019) received a Special Recognition Award for Services to Nutrition from The GLOBAL WOMEN INVENTOR'S , INNOVATION NETWORK (21ST ANNIVERSARY)
I was the resident nutritionist for Champneys Health Resorts for 17 years.
I now run a busy practice in Hitchin and run clinics in London on a monthly basis.
I specialise in digestion problems, skin allergies and give support to people for weight management. I give people practical dietary help to support their health concerns. I am now also advising more people with pre diabetes.
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 women's magazines working with renowned health journalist Karen Evennett. I have had 2 articles published in "The Optimum Nutrition Magazine" on Diet and Memory and Staying healthy in your Golden Years.
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. Celebrating 20 years in 2020!
I am a member of the British Association for Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine (BANT).
I am also registered with the Complementary & Natural Health Council (CNHC).
I have helped over 7000 people face to face with 1-1 consultations including food intolerance testing and vitamin and mineral checks.
