I'm passionate about getting to know people and understanding what it is about their current diet and lifestyle that is causing them to feel unwell.
I qualified in naturopathic nutritional therapy at the London College of Naturopathic Medicine and am based in SE London. I've had an interest in nutrition since around the age of 15 when I was picking up and reading all of the latest health and diet books that my mother bought.
I suspect I've had hypothyroidism for most of my life. I was a fussy eater as a child and didn't eat many fruits and vegetables. I wasn't a fan of the outdoors or sports and exercise and experienced chronic stress throughout most of my life. Autoimmunity develops from a combination of genetics, poor diet and lifestyle, other environmental factors and damage to the gut lining.
At my worst, I was suffering from digestive issues, anxiety, low mood, weight gain, fatigue, PMS, sensitivity to the cold and poor circulation as well as back, neck and muscle aches. These symptoms and my final diagnosis was the driving force to finding a way to feel and look better. I had read about other people reversing their conditions with diet and lifestyle and I was inspired to do the same.
Since my diagnosis in 2016 I have been applying my knowledge and making long-term diet and lifestyle changes. Almost all of my symptoms have gone, my thyroid antibodies have reduced by 90% and I have given birth to a healthy baby boy.
I took the decision to help others with the same issues. It can take a long time to get an official diagnosis and for symptoms to be taken seriously. Treatment options are limited and they can still leave people feeling unwell. I'm here to empower you to take control of your health, listen to your body, discover your triggers and root causes and support you to start eliminating those symptoms.

How It Works
I'll take a full case history from birth assessing each system of your body, your current symptoms, diet and lifestyle habits. We'll discuss environmental exposures such as chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals. I'll look at you movement, sleep, stress, current supplements and medication as well as your blood test results. We may touch on previous unresolved traumas, your budget, what you can manage and the level of support you'd like. Then I will put a plan together for you to undertake over the next couple of weeks.
I may suggest some testing and extra supplementation. I will always work alongside your current healthcare providers including your GP. I can write referral letters and provide you with lots of recipes, handouts and support. We'll work on this together and you can ask me all of the questions that you have.
