I believe how we eat is an important factor in determining how we look and feel, and I'm passionate about helping people reach their goals by making simple improvements to overall health.
My own journey began in consumer publishing where I relished the varied and fast-pace of working on weekly magazines. I quickly found I was drawn towards health and wellness, and gradually carved out a niche as a lifestyle journalist working across a number of women's glossies and celebrity titles both in the UK and abroad.
As a journalist writing about health, fitness and other aspects of lifestyle, I became particularly fascinated about the influence of diet on wellbeing, and this was only heightened when I saw those close to me struggling with a string of debilitating health problems. I wanted to expand my knowledge with science-backed evidence so that I could offer advice within safe parameters, and I was also inspired to find out how I could make improvements to my own health. In 2009 with an unrelenting thirst to learn, I embarked on a three-year course to qualify as a nutritionist. I trained at London's prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine where I completed my studies alongside my full-time role as features editor of Women’s Fitness magazine.
After having my first baby I chose to go down the freelance route, and I now divide my time building my nutrition business with my editorial work - often combining the two. With a special interest in women's wellbeing, I offer bespoke programmes using research-based nutrition to maximise wellness. Everyone is different, so my approach is tailored to suit individual needs. My action plan is always centred around helping clients reach their specific goals, providing clear, digestible knowledge and simple tools for clients to continue the journey to optimum health by themselves. I also collaborate with food brands providing support for health-driven campaigns, product launches and compile creative content.
I am a member of the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (ANP), which is one of the leading professional body's for nutritional therapy promoting high standards of ethics within the sector, and the General Naturopathic Council (GNC). I regularly attend seminars, courses and workshops to meet with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements. As the nutrition field is constantly evolving, this keeps me up to date with the latest research and equips me with the scientific knowledge necessary to help my clients successfully achieve their health goals.
My aim is to instil clients with the confidence to make fulfilling food choices, and live the happiest and healthiest life they can.
