A period of illness in 2013 was the catalyst for me to overhaul my diet, make lifestyle changes and swap beauty products with more natural alternatives. During the months of treatment following my illness, I read as much as I could about dietary and lifestyle interventions to support my recovery, and incorporated many of them into to my everyday life. As well as giving me a sense of control over my diagnosis and treatment, helping me both mentally and physically, these changes not only supported my recovery, but gave me renewed vitality, energy and a huge improvement in overall health.
I became fascinated by the power of good food, and the importance of the impact of a balanced healthy diet on the mind and body, and wanted to share what I had learnt with others. I completed a degree level diploma in Nutritional Therapy, including 200 hours of practical clinics with clients, at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. There I met like-minded people, inspiring lecturers, and experienced nutritionists – all with a passion to improve people’s lives. I knew that by qualifying as a Nutritional Therapist, I could share more credibly and more widely, my desire to help others improve their health and wellbeing through nutrition.
As well as running my own private clinic, I also work for the Soil Association Food for Life Programme, supporting caterers to adopt sustainable working practices to reduce their carbon footprint.
