With two grown-up children, I am very aware of the challenges involved for my clients in making dietary and lifestyle modifications within busy home and work environments. For this reason, I aim to make adjustments uncomplicated and manageable, and within my clients’ comfort zones.
I use different therapies in my “tool- kit” because rarely does one approach on its own work as effectively as when they are combined. Especially when making dietary and lifestyle adjustments, we firstly need the scientific factual information to know what we need to do to improve our health. Then we also need tools to help us translate that knowledge into actually doing it and staying motivated.Plus, we might also need tools to help us overcome psychological and practical barriers that stop us reaching our goals.
That’s why I use a combined approach of Nutrition Therapy, EFT (or “tapping”) and Motivational Coaching- but I personalise my approach for each client as some might only need certain elements, while others all of them.
My Qualificaitons and Experience
I have a First Class Honours BSc in Nutritional Therapy from the University of Greenwich and BCNH – the UK College of Nutrition and Health. I also have a BSc in Sociology from The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), which provides an ideal complement to my work as a Nutritional Therapist. In addition I am also a fully Accredited Certified EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, or “Tapping”) Practitioner, as well as a Certified Zest4Llife Health Coach.
I belong to the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques (AAMET).
I have always been thirsty for knowledge to develop myself professionally (and personally) so look forward to attending continuing professional development seminars, reading books and research articles etc to keep up-to date with nutrition research as it’s a rapidly evolving field.
I thoroughly enjoy working with my clients on a one-to-one basis as well as in corporate environments, delivering in-house nutrition clinics and seminars, including a documentary for Discovery Channel Asia. I love spreading the word about nutrition, it’s very rewarding! I have worked as part of The Nutrition Coach team in Harley Street and as a Clinical Tutor and Academic Supervisor at BCNH – the UK College of Nutrition and Health.
