ABOUT

I am a London-based BANT Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Nutritionist with over 14 years experience in clinical practice.

 

How it all started

My initial interest in nutrition began following a new year's resolution to make more conscious decisions about my food choices, back in 2005. After a little experimentation, I noticed a few unintended changes: more energy, better sleep, less anxiety, clearer skin and an insatiable desire to learn more.

early career

I quickly re-directed my career plans from counselling and psychology; by the autumn of 2005, I commenced nutritional therapy training.  After graduating, I was able to blend my interest in mental health with nutrition, establishing a nutritional therapy service within a drug and alcohol clinic, which I ran for 5 years. I developed a taste for training and education in this role, delivering courses to mental health and social care practitioners locally. 

Mid-career

My surprise love for teaching led me to Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and finally London, lecturing and supervising student clinical education.  Throughout more than 7 years as an educator, I maintained a diverse private practice. 

 

What I'm doing now

 

I provide nutritional therapy clinical services to people with a wide range of health issues. Specialising in complex case management, I work with clients who have multiple or complicated health issues; many are prescribed multiple medications, which can be trickier to navigate for less experienced clinicians. I dedicate half of my working hours to practitioner development services, supporting other nutritional therapists to deepen confidence and ensure their advice is up-to-date and evidence-based.

I make use of comprehensive health history information and laboratory assessment to create a personalised and client-centred experience. I pride myself on a cutting edge, evidence-based and sustainable approach to health promotion.  

Nutrition Education and Training

I have more than 7 years and over 12,000 teaching hours experience as a senior lecturer, clinical supervisor and academic tutor in Nutritional Therapy. I write and deliver CPD courses, bespoke 1-1 and group tutorials, workshops; training healthcare practitioners and students who want to deepen their understanding of nutrition and lifestyle interventions. Developing critical thinking, evidence-based practice and managing complexity is my key priority. 

I am passionate about mentoring both recent nutrition graduates and seasoned clinicians through made-to-measure packages. Personal, clinical and academic development are nurtured and accelerated, emphasising evidence-based nutrition practice and maximising potential.

I offer 1-1 and small group clinical supervision support to new and experienced clinicians alike who need a second opinion from time-to-time. I help focus recommendations, prioritise goals, highlight barriers or missing information and trouble-shoot complex or atypical presentations.  This makes for more rewarding and dynamic practise.
