Like many nutritional therapists I came into this field following my own – quite serious – struggles with ill health. Then in 2012 I embarked on a diploma in Nutritional Therapy from The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.
It was there that I learned that every effort to cure me had failed simply because no-one in a traditional medical field had made the connection between my previous illness and my ongoing problems. I had quite literally wasted years (20!) treating my symptoms rather than what was causing them.
What I learned was that fundamental to the practice of Nutritional Therapy is getting to the root of the problem and then working out what in your current diet or lifestyle is contributing to and driving those issues. Even if that means delving back into your deep medical past. It is incredibly empowering to have regained your health by taking back control of your own life.
Before my training in Nutrition, I worked as a chef so I think it fair to say that I understand food – how to make it taste great but also to do you good as well. My mission is to get you super-confident in making the best food and nutrition choices that are right for you . So that you can choose, prepare and enjoy the food that gives you the most health benefit and pleasure.
