Qualifying in 2008, following four years study at London’s Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), I am committed to staying up-to-date with the latest research through regular additional training.
Now working in Barnes, SW13, I am a fully insured, qualified and registered member of the British Associate of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
As a little girl, I always loved sweets. My sweet tooth came into its own at university where I indulged in the typical student diet of of alcohol (sugar), pasta (sugar) and toast (more sugar). After three years weight gain, I’d become spotty, sluggish and felt pretty miserable. A diagnosis of PCOS followed, with medical treatment options offering a choice of the contraceptive pill or Metformin – a type of diabetic drug – neither of which appealed to me. So I put the GP’s prescription in my bedside cabinet and instead found myself a nutritional therapist.
Within a few months of beginning an eating plan, I saw a remarkable difference in how I felt and looked. After a year, I felt pretty much back to normal. When I returned to my GP, I was told I had never had PCOS in the first place, and that the scan and blood test must have been wrong.
Having experienced the power of nutrition first hand, I felt compelled to retrain and help others improve their health through diet and lifestyle changes, as I had mine.
I pride myself in my ability to show clients how they can produce delicious healthy food without spending hours in the kitchen. Over the years I have built-up many short cuts and ways to get people preparing simple, tasty and nutritious dishes that help them in their health and weight loss goals.
