Nutritional therapy is a scientific yet natural approach to restoring and maintaining optimal health. It uses nutrients – rather than pharmaceutical drugs – to help resolve health problems and restore equilibrium. And rather than just treating symptoms, nutritional therapy aims to establish and address the underlying causes. That way, you get lasting solutions to your health issues. Each client is assessed as an individual – there is no ‘one size fits all’
By helping the body to become well nourished and function more optimally, it’s possible to support a wide range of health issues – from common complaints such as fatigue, weight gain and skin problems, to more complex conditions such as depression, infertility and diabetes. There is also a wealth of scientific evidence to support the success of nutritional approaches in addressing many health issues – and, unlike pharmaceutical drugs, nutrients don’t have any harmful side effects.
There are four key stages:
I rarely recommend you exclude major food groups or follow challenging diets. If I do suggest certain food exclusions, this is done in full consultation with you, and usually after gathering scientific evidence that doing so will bring you benefit. I will then carefully look at what can be substituted to ensure your nutrient intake doesn’t suffer. But my goal is to compile a programme that’s workable and practical for you, so I won’t ever recommend anything that you feel isn’t achievable.
An initial consultation lasts for around 90 minutes, depending on the complexity of your case. This is best done face to face.
After you’ve tried out the programme for about four-to-six weeks, another appointment is recommended (this can be in person, or over the phone if easier) to monitor how you’re getting on and progress things. My aim is to get you to a point were you achieve your health goals and have gathered sufficient information from me to manage yourself going forward – this may happen after two or three consultations or can take longer, depending on your needs. In between consultations, I am available to answer questions or provide additional support as required.
Before an initial consultation, I provide you with an extensive questionnaire to fill out and return to me for some initial analysis before we meet. Please see the first section of this page for download links.
If you are taking any medication or supplements, or have any test results relating to your condition (eg from your GP or a hospital), I’ll ask you to bring these with you to our consultation. All information is treated as confidential.
The cost for an initial consultation is £90. Follow-up consultations are charged according to the time you need at £1 per minute (ie £20 for 20 minutes) but usually take 40 minutes, or between 10 and 15 minutes if we just need to discuss test results. These fees exclude tests or supplements (which I can arrange for you but you pay the supplier directly).
After completing a Science Foundation Course, I trained for three years with the Institute for Optimum Nutrition and graduated with distinction. I am a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists and am also registered with the Nutritional Therapy Council and the Complementary and Natural Health Council. As part of my continuing professional development, I regularly attend seminars and training days to expand my knowledge.
My main clinic is near Petersfield in Hampshire but I also see clients from the Stress Clinic in south west London. Home or office visits can also be arranged, and travel time is charged.
Visit my contact page and call or email me to arrange a time. Once we’ve agreed a date and time, please download the Nutritional Profile questionnaire found in the top section of this page, fill it in and return to me, ahead of your appointment, to Walled Garden Cottage, Bordean Manor Estate, Petersfield, Hampshire GU32 1EP.
Please contact me to arrange another time. I just ask that you give me at least 48 hours notice, otherwise a cancellation fee of 50% applies.
