2021 I have been a nutritional therapist for 21 years
2019 I received a Special Recognition Award for Services to Nutrition from The GLOBAL WOMEN INVENTOR'S , INNOVATION NETWORK (21ST ANNIVERSARY)
I was the resident nutritionist for Champneys Health Resorts for 17 years.
I am busy seeing clients in Hitchin at the Health Emporium clinic and give follow up support via zoom or telephone. I work in a large airy room with comfortable office chairs. I request a detailed health questionnaire and food diary , which I discuss in your first appointment. Then follow up appointments are recommended to keep you motivated to reach your health goals. Prices vary according to individual needs.
I specialise in digestion problems, skin allergies often linked to histamine intolerance and give support to people for weight management/detoxing.
My interest in Nutrition developed from a childhood of eating healthy fresh food on my parent's farm.
Since then I have added more variety to my diet i.e. pulses, rice, and nuts while reducing wheat and dairy which has helped me manage my weight.
I have had many challenges over the years including supporting World Vision in their 24hr fast in 2003 to helping a cyclist complete the Race Across America (RAAM) 2007.
I spent 1 year (2006) writing a health column for "Real People" magazine.
I was a regular contributory author for the online health website watchfit.com, for 2 years 2014- 2016. I have had 2 articles published in "The Optimum Nutrition Magazine" on Diet and Memory and Staying healthy in your Golden Years. I regularly work with Health Journalist Karen Evennett to support articles published regularly in Woman's Weekly magazine. Recent articles on lockdown diets and foods to boost energy.
I was awarded a BSc (Hons) in Nutrition and Food Science in 1996.
Then in 2000, I was awarded DipION from the Institute of Optimum Nutrition. Celebrating 21 years in 2021!
