Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy
I help my clients achieve optimal mental and emotional health and well-being by offering a individualised and integrative approach. I use a range of therapies that address all levels of mind and body to support your personal goals.
Optimum nutrition is essential for creating the basis of optimal functioning at the biochemical level.
What Is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy applies the sciences of nutrition and health to optimise the health
of the individual. It encompasses both diet and the use of nutritional supplements.
Nutritional therapy starts with an individual's health goals such as better focus, having more energy or losing weight, and then looks at how we can support the interconnected body systems that need to function optimally in order to achieve those goals - things like:
- blood sugar balance
- hormone balance
- immune system balance
- optimal digestion and absorption.
Nutritional therapy is based on a systems view of health called functional medicine,
which seeks to identify and correct underlying physiological imbalances rather than treat
specific diseases symptoms. It starts with objectively assessing your individual health and nutrition status - read more about

If you struggle to lose weight and keep it off, it's likely your problem is one or both of:
- Metabolic and physiological road blocks - preventing your body from burning calories efficiently
- Uncontrolled craving - caused by stress and brain dysregulation.
My personalised, integrative programme helps you address both and achieve sustainable weight loss.
"For some time I had problems with mental focus and energy,
especially at work. We did some testing to identify possible causes, and decided
to try using biofeedback and nutrition. Amino acid supplements helped me, but I
also learned how to improve my health on my own through diet.
"Every day now, I feel much healthier and enjoy life at a
higher level. I’ve lost weight, and gained control over my energy levels. More
importantly, I believe I can keep doing it in a sustainable way."
