frequently asked questions.
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance, and individual care. Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
Looking at the foods you eat and your requirements for vitamins and minerals is a small part of Nutritional Therapy. I also take the time to understand how you feel right now, how you would like to feel, the signs and symptoms that bother you right now, how you sleep, how stressed you feel, ow often you move, when you eat, how you eat and who you eat with.
Nutritional Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to reassess your lifestyle as a whole and to really listen to your body. It is a bit of time for yourself.
I am registered and regulated by the British Association for Applied Nutritional Therapy (BANT), and am a member of The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
Some people are looking for help to address unwanted signs and symptoms around digestion, hormones, skin health, weight management, etc…. Others may be proactively looking at their health to prevent ill health later on in life. Nutritional Therapy recognises that we are all individuals and personalised nutrition is essential to achieve optimum health.
Depending on the length of the programme and the key focus, some people can expect to experience higher energy levels, balanced blood sugar levels, improved skin health, emotional and psychological wellbeing, improved gastrointestinal health and tolerance to a broad range of food groups.
The initial consultation is 90 minutes. Follow up appointments last 45 minutes.
Your food diary, a list of current medications, and any recent test results.
Payments are made via bank transfer prior the appointment.
I offer additional support via email, WhatsApp, or Messenger for additional questions in between consultations.
In some cases, focusing on food and lifestyle strategies may not be sufficient to find the root cause of the imbalances. Functional testing provides valuable data to help us make the whole healing process more targeted and therefore much more effective.
You can choose the appropriate programme to address your health issue. The majority of clients tend to work with me for a minimum of 3 months so that they can benefit from on-going support to ensure long-term health improvement.

You do not need a doctor's permission or a prescription to work with a nutritional therapist; however, if you are under the care of a doctor for a specific disease or illness, you may want to inform them that you are modifying your nutrition in order to improve your general wellbeing. Nutritional therapy may be a beneficial addition to more traditional care, and it may also alter your need for medication, so it is important you keep your physician informed of changes in your nutritional program. If you are under the care of another healthcare provider, it is very important that you contact your healthcare provider(s) and inform them about your use of nutritional supplements.
Before we book a consultation, you are invited for a quick chat on the telephone to discuss your health challenges. You can contact me via email at email@example.com or you can call me on 07983335647. You can also complete the form on our contact page.
