Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist
I qualified as a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist after studying for three years with the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in Birmingham and London. I have always been interested in the healing power of food especially when faced with my own health issues and those of my nearest and dearest.
I was keen to look for ways that I could improve my own health rather than just relying on prescription medication and so began my journey with food as medicine.I believe passionately in the power of foods and have learned to never underestimate the effects on health that can be achieved through even small beneficial changes in diet and lifestyle. Prior to Nutritional Therapy I worked in the education sector as a teacher for 10 years and as an Education Consultant for a further 5 years.
As well as seeing my own clients, I am an Assistant Clinical Supervisor for student clinics at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Birmingham. I am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). By choosing a Nutritional Therapist who is a member of BANT you can be confident that they follow the strict BANT Code of Professional Practice, have professional indemnity insurance for clinical practice and also meet the membership criteria. Please see the BANT website for further details.I look forward to having the privilege of helping you on your journey to improved health and well-being.
