Using a scientific approach to nutrition, I help clients to identify the underlying causes of their health concerns. Symptoms tell us that one or more of the bodies systems is out of balance.
What are your symptoms telling us about the health of your underlying systems?
What is your body lacking and what does it need?
With this understanding in place, I give practical, hands-on advice to help you understand how to restore and maintain your health. I focus food, lifestyle and the use of food state nutritional supplements when required.
EVERY ONE OF US HAS A HEALTH STORY
…and we are tuned into the individual habits of our own bodies. Some of us have niggling symptoms, whilst others may be suffering with chronic illness and pain. In my clinic I see men, women and children of all ages with a whole range of health concerns.
Energy and Vitality
The body can reach a state of fatigue via a number of different routes. For some people this is a 'slow onset' over many years and for others may happen quite suddenly, maybe following a viral infection. Common symptoms include fatigue that is not alleviated by sleep, low energy, low immunity and discomfort throughout the body.
Despite its complexity, the human body has a simple mandate. We are designed to take in food, break this down, absorb the nutrients for energy, growth and repair, and eliminate the waste products. If any part of this process is not working effectively, the health of other parts of the body may be compromised.
The endocrine system includes a system of glands that produce hormones. Hormones work in harmony to regulate a myriad of functions within the body. Imbalances in one organ can impact the overall balance of the hormonal system.
Take hold of your health today
Given the right foods and nutrients, the body has a remarkable capacity for restoring and maintaining itself.
Modern day living brings stress, pollution and poor diet, all of which conspire to deplete us of essential nutrition and disrupt the natural equilibrium within our bodies.
Left unchecked, the systems within the body can become depleted, resulting in a host of health complaints. Symptoms tell us that one or more of the bodies systems is out of balance. While conventional medicines treat symptoms, the underlying imbalances often remain.
I combine a scientific and Naturopathic approach to Nutrition. Naturopathic Nutrition is a holistic therapy which treats everyone as an individual, identifying and treating the cause of disease rather than suppressing the symptoms.
Understand which of your body systems are out of balance.
Restore these systems and your health by giving your body the nutritional building blocks that it requires.

I have a background in Biology and a Doctorate in Molecular Genetics (University of Nottingham) which supports my understanding of how the body functions and its numerous metabolic pathways. This is important in devising a targeted Nutritional Program for individual clients.

I am a full Member of the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners (FNTP).

I am also a GAPS practitioner. Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAP Syndrome or GAPS)™ is a condition which establishes a connection between the functions of the digestive system and the brain. This term was created by Dr Natasha Campbell–McBride, MD, MMedSci (neurology), MMedSci (human nutrition).
I am committed to Continuing Professional Development and I regularly attend conferences and seminars to keep up-to-date with the very latest in nutritional research.
I run a private clinic in a comfortable and welcoming practice room in Church Crookham five days a week and I offer a free initial consultation by phone to help you to asses if this approach is suitable for you.
