Diploma in Nutritional Therapy, The College of Naturopathic Medicine
I am trained to support all areas of health via nutritional therapy, and have a key interest in female health, hormones, fertility and digestive issues. I use a functional medicine approach, and use up to date medical research to produce individualised nutrition plans for my clients.
My interest in nutrition grew in my 20s when I began exploring organic agriculture in Spain and Ayurvedic medicine in India, and I began to realise and experience the huge benefits of using food as medicine.
I spent 3 years teaching cookery and menu planning for a specialist college, working with young people with challenging behaviour and learning difficulties. With a desire to learn the true science behind what I was reading, I went back to studying and trained as a nutritional therapist at the College of Naturopathic Medicine.
Whilst preparing meals for someone suffering with chronic fatigue syndrome, it was clear that nutrient dense, antioxidant rich and easily digestible foods were making a positive impact on her health. During this time, I also had family members struggling with chronic ill health, who were not finding solutions via mainstream medicine and I started to research and turn to various natural health practices to re-establish their health and wellbeing.
