Ever since I can remember I had put on weight easily, even as a small child. Now, later in life and as Registered Nutritional Therapist, I realise that much of this disposition to easy weight gain came down to my genetics. At last I am free of the constant dieting as I now know how to manage the food I eat but I will always have to be careful, that’s just the way it is. Maybe you can relate to this?
Having enjoyed a successful career in the media, I developed a keen interest in the therapeutic use of nutrition and the amazing impact that it has on health and wellbeing. At the same time I also began to appreciate the tremendous strain that modern day life can put upon our bodies. Although highly resilient, over time minor symptoms begin to surface… Weight gain, lethargy, the occasional headache, aches and pains and so on. If these symptoms are left unsupported then in many cases a state of ill-health will start to develop.
My passion for health and regaining that essential zest for life led me to the prestigious London College of Naturopathic Medicine (CMN). I gained my Diploma in Naturopathic Medicine after three years of studying both biomedicine and the fundamentals of Functional Medicine.
I now run my own busy on-line weight loss clinic as well as seeing clients in person at my Poole clinic. I am a full member of the British Association For Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT). Further I am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which is supported by the Department of Health.
BANT represents the seal of excellence for nutrition health professionals in promoting the highest standards of education, training and qualification within nutritional therapy. CNHC is designed to enable applicants to demonstrate that their training and experience meets the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for their profession.
