About Me

I am a fully qualified BANT and CNHC Registered Nutritional Therapist who completed my training at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), an accredited course, founded by Patrick Holford, author of the ‘Optimum Nutrition Bible’.

Having completed my training at ION, I decided to continue my studies with the BSc (Hons) Nutritional Therapy programme at the Centre for Nutrition Education and Lifestyle Management Centre (CNELM), in which I graduated with a first class honours degree in Nutritional Therapy.

I have always been fascinated by food and sought nutritional therapy myself to optimise my digestive health. The positive effects and long-term health benefits that I gained from following a programme of diet and lifestyle changes inspired me to pursue a career in nutritional therapy so that I could provide evidence-based advice to optimise the health of others.

As well as a passion for nutrition, I have always enjoyed sport and have competed at County level athletics. Having had an athletic background, I understand the importance of good nutrition in order to optimise sports performance and energy levels.

I deal with all areas of nutrition but my special interests lie particularly in digestive health, supporting a healthy blood sugar balance, optimising energy production and sports nutrition.
