ABOUT ME

My passion for nutrition came from a true love of food. Moreover how food can really change the way you think, feel and look from the inside out.

I wholeheartedly believe that healthy AND tasty food is the best you can get and it really isn’t about being restrictive or punishing, in fact the complete opposite! Including a wide variety of highly nourishing and delicious foods that can support overall wellbeing and health is really the best and most sustainable approach.

My philosophy is working towards an authentic life-long positive attitude of eating well. No quick fixes, fads, rules, detoxes or diets but rather a balanced and functional approach that supports the body on a deeper level to increase vitality and a consistent feeling of well being for long term changes. And not to forget to enjoy the process of eating. Eating for the soul and connecting joyfully with our food can be just as important as what is on the plate in front of us.

I consider eating well one of THE most empowering things we can do for our health and self awareness and education is such an important part of this. As such I regularly host interactive workshops, talks and retreats with various media, corporate and wellbeing companies. I also write regularly for leading publications and online platforms including a monthly page for Psychologies magazine and as the well being columnist for MATCHESFASHION.COM tackling various nutrition related topics that I believe are current, relevant and can often be very confusing.

I’m a registered member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and hold a BA degree in Psychology.

Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function.
The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches health care professional’s how to apply these principles in practice through an intensive 5 day training course called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™.
I attended and completed the AFMCP™-UK training in London in 2017.
