Nutrition: When a passion turns into a mission
It is only in the 3rd year of my fascinating studies that I finally discovered what was wrong with me. I was so amazed at the impact food can have on the body that I wanted to share my new found knowledge with others. I cleared my issue by merely focusing on food, supplements and lifestyle strategies. I truly believe that food can be nourishing and healing.
I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist with the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London. I am registered with CNHC and I am a member of BANT (The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine).
I am also a Certified Mind Body Eating Coach. I trained at the Institute of the Psychology of Eating, the world’s leading school in Nutritional Psychology.
I offer 1 to 1 consultations at the West Wimbledon Physiotherapy Clinic in Raynes Park and I also offer home visits in Worcester Park, New Malden, Raynes Park, Sutton, Cheam, Epsom and surrounding areas in Surrey.
What is Mind Body Nutrition?
Originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Mind Body Nutrition goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behaviour. Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing, and much more, profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. And it offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.
A bit more about me
I am passionate about helping families to cook again and rediscover the pleasure of eating fresh food. And I have a particular interest in female health including weight management, stress management, digestive issues, food allergies, and food intolerances. These are all issues I have had to deal with myself.
I love discovering what the world has to offer. Connecting with people and nature is big on my priority list. I spend my spare time with family and friends, traveling to unspoiled places, cooking, relaxing somewhere leafy and fresh such as one of the wonderful parks in London and so much more. My lovely husband and daughter can’t keep up with me!
While learning about nutrition, I have discovered the importance of caring for our own body. Whatever we put in, we get back. When we take the time to listen to our body, we can fix it as soon as something does not feel right. My mission is to help people reconnect with their bodies and with real food.
