I have been in clinical practice for 9 years now and so have helped a wealth of different people achieve wellness. I work with commitment, compassion, critical-thinking and conscientiousness. It is not enough to send people away with a list of ideals setting them up to fail, I work with each individual so that they have the targets and information they need to achieve. Therefore it is vital to me that I get to know every patient, not only their health picture; but also their lifestyle, family situation, time restraints and passions in life!
In these Covid times, a virtual consultation has become the norm, however face-to-face appointments are available where desired.
I am fully insured and a full member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy (BANT). I am committed to keeping up-to-date with the latest health news and research material. For continued professional development I attend seminars, lectures, webinars, workshops and subscribe to medical journals to keep abreast of current health news articles.
My philosophy is not about placing limitations and restrictions on people but helping them to listen to their body and to the symptoms it demonstrates to make wiser, more informed decisions about their food intake and health, using nutrient support where necessary to gain equilibrium once again.
I was diagnosed with a serious autoimmune condition and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, at the age of 9 years old - a medical rarity at the time. Unfortunately, these types of disease in the very young is no longer very unusual. Therefore, I have been through the spectrum of emotion that comes with a chronic illness. I have been hospitalised, medicalised, traumatised and dis-engaged with my body. This has shaped the way I view my clients. I don't judge or shame.
