2023 I am now a registered Metabolic Balance Coach. Metabolic Balance is a bespoke programme to help people lose weight and and improve conditions such as diabetes type 2, blood pressure and cholesterol. You will have a blood test covering 36 markers which is done by the The Doctors Lab (TDL) in Wimpole Street London. You can have the test done local to you and then post it. The results are then added to the Metabolic balance programme to produce a personalised diet plan for you to follow for 3 months or until you reach your weight goal. The progamme does not require any vitamin supplements. You will receive 7 coaching sessions to help keep you motivated. Please email me for more details.

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.

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.
