Nutritional therapy is not healthy eating!

Well, it is healthy eating of course, but it is personalised to your individual circumstances. In my nutritional therapy consultations, I take a holistic approach using the functional medicine model to best uncover any potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these might contribute to your symptoms or health concerns. I then develop a tailored plan to help you reach your health goals. This will include achievable nutrition and lifestyle recommendations which are appropriate to your specific needs, so you can start to take back control over your own wellbeing.

Nutritional therapy is suitable for those who wish to enhance their health and wellbeing as well as for those with chronic conditions who wish to work with a nutritional therapist in collaboration with other qualified health professionals (note that nutritional therapists do not provide medical diagnoses or treatment).

I work with people for many reasons, such as digestive issues or wanting more energy. It is not a quick fix or a one-size fits all process as every body is unique. Prior to the initial consultation clients complete a nutrition and health questionnaire and 3 day food diary and this is explored further in the initial consultation along with a discussion of relevant lifestyle factors. The initial plan is agreed and then built on or tweaked in the following consultations which are usually completed over 8 weeks.

There is such a vast amount of information on different foods and diets available that it can be a challenge to unpick what is helpful or relevant to your individual body or circumstances. Rest assured that I evaluate the research and my recommendations are always evidence-based.
