Like many others my path to Nutritional Therapy came about through my own health struggles. During my 30s I suffered with IBS and poor digestion together with poor stamina and increasing fatigue. I also suffered menstrual irregularities and was diagnosed with endometriosis. The conventional medical route failed to provide me with a solution to my plethora of problems so I started to look at alternative approaches.
I was amazed to find how much changing my diet improved my symptoms. Researching and reading about nutrition became my hobby and I was spending so much time on it that I embarked on a 3 Year Nutritional Therapy Diploma with the main aim of fixing myself. I graduated with Distinction from IINH in 2008 and went on to complete a MSc in Personalised Nutrition at CNELM in 2014.
I am so passionate about the potential benefits of nutritional therapy that I left a successful corporate career in Pharmaceutical research in 2008 to pursue a career in nutrition. I am enjoying a hugely varied career which includes a private clinic where I see clients one to one, lecturing at various NTC approved Nutrition colleges in the UK, student clinic supervision and running workshops.
