I am a qualified naturopathic nutritionist with a diploma in nutritional therapy and a postgraduate diploma in Iridology, both from the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in London.
I completed the Institute of Functional Medicine's 'Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice' module in 2015.
The mainstay of my work are one-to-one consultations in my home clinic, as well as skypes or facetime consultations for those living further afield or unable to come to Wimborne.
My aim is to uncover the root causes of your symptoms and help you find well-being and balance in your life.
I also run health talks/workshops upon request. These have been on topics such as Health after cancer, Auto immune disorders, Fatigue, Heart disease (including managing blood pressure and cholesterol), Avoiding diabetes, Menopause a.o.
They are geared to groups of more than six (6) and can be held in the home or workplace.
Please email for more details or if you have a specific health interest request.
Cooking days are for everyone! Clients who want a cooking day in lieu of a later follow-up, or couples celebrating anniversaries and birthdays; groups of friends or employees interested in healthy delicious themed cooking days, preparing and eating together. More details are on my 'Cooking Workshop' page.
My interest in nutrition stems from my own personal story. Growing up with parents who had allergies and digestive disorders, plus a long familial history of cardiovascular disease. Losing someone dear to me to an auto-immune disease clinched my belief that pills and prescriptions are not the answer to illness and disease.
I regularly attend practitioner seminars and conferences, listen to practitioner webinars and read research papers, with a particular interest in brain and gut health as well as auto-immune conditions.
I love being part of an ever-growing community and a member of a health therapy that's currently embracing the planet. Thanks to this global message, everyone knows by now that we are indeed what we eat!
The organisations I belong to are: the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare council (CNHC, which is supported by the Dept. of Health), and the Nutritional Therapy Council (NTCC).
In 2015 I attended the Institute of Functional Medicine, and graduated in the ‘Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice’ module. This focuses on what I'd learned at college, namely integrating the patient’s ‘story’ - the history, signs and symptoms - with a science-based approach that supports chronic and complex cases.
Rather than looking for a single treatment for a single diagnosis, Functional Medicine looks at an integrated approach which uses nutrition, diet, functional testing and lifestyle adaptation to improve your health.
