My Story

I am a mum of two - Zoë and River and step mum to Amy.  I live with partner Jonny, our son River, two dogs, a cat and two guinea pigs. I am extremely passionate about functional nutrition, naturopathy, herbal medicine and holistic healing and I enjoy creating interesting and nutrient rich dishes. I have a deep love for animals and nature and a keen interest in history, science, art and travelling. and I am a strong believer in daily exercise, my favourites being yoga, light weight training, trail running and trekking.

I turned vegetarian at the age of nine out of my my concern for animal welfare, and as I grew up I became far more aware of what was healthy and what was not. My diet was far from perfect and I have had my share of health issues over the years. 

 

 
My health story in a nut shell

 

Having suffered from asthma in my twenties I was told I would have to be on medication for the rest of my life, however I cut out dairy, exercised more, practiced breath work and started eating a wholefood plant based diet. My asthma is now practically non-existent. Later on I found out my thyroid was functioning on the slow side but with natural medicine and lifestyle changes I healed it. Unfortunately, after the birth of my son and two years of very little sleep my adrenals were suffering and my thyroid was no longer functioning as it should. I was suffering from mild depression, exhaustion, my skin was not looking great and most of the time I just could not function well. This time I had no choice but to resort to medication, but I kept on taking care of what I ate and increased my probiotic and prebiotic rich foods, took herbal medicine - both for my adrenal fatigue and thyroid and well as for other body systems that needed support during my healing - and within 6 months my thyroid was functioning better.  During this time I also suffered with bloating, stomach cramps and slow digestion so I cut out gluten, took herbal medicine for my digestive system and really focused on eating gut healing foods and avoiding inflammatory foods and now I can proudly say that I have a great digestive system. ​I do allow myself to let go at times, but the important thing is that I always get back on track ;-).

My qualifications

 In 2015 I started working as a part time nutrition coach after completing a diploma in nutrition coaching. At the time I started studying with The School of Natural Medicine, UK  but then got pregnant in 2017 so my study journey had to slow down. In 2019, I managed to complete my healing diets coaching certificate, followed by a professional diploma in naturopathic nutrition.  In 2022, I obtained my certificates from SNM in nauturopathy and iridology. I started studying with The Health Sciences Academy in 2022, and in 2023, I completed advanced diplomas in gut restoration and nutritional therapy. I am currently studying for a university level diploma (level 7) in clinical nutrition and working towards a BSc (Hons) in nutritional therapy. Being a mum, working and studying is a challenge but I have never felt more determined as I do today. 

 

Through out the years, I have taken various short courses and webinars on IBS management, perimenopause and menopause, stress management, sports nutrition, mindfulness, plant based nutrition, and epigenetics. I love learning, which is a good thing as in the nutrition business it is crucial to keep up to date with the latest science. 
 

I offer a number of different consultation packages at very reasonable prices which will be completely tailored to your needs, taking into consideration bio-individuality. I use a holistic approach with all my clients bringing together the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of their lives. 

I love to help, as well as empower others to help themselves to live a healthier and happier life.
