A mother of two energetic boys I qualified as a nutritional therapist in 2011 with a BSc in Nutritional Medicine from West London University. I am passionate about providing realistic and tailored nutritional advice for adults and children in order to bring about change in yourself or your child.
It’s essential that the programmes I provide are realistically obtainable by you so recommendations are always a collaborative process. For example, if a child loves breakfast but is very fussy at other mealtimes, I work with what can be added to optimize this mealtime. If an extremely busy client doesn’t have time to cook, I will put together a programme with quick meal ideas and shopping lists for healthy convenience foods. If a mother is finding it hard to lose weight I will work with her to create healthy food options for all the family (ones they won’t notice!) as research shows that losing weight is easier if all the family are eating healthier options. I have also recently been on BBC Sussex and Radio Reverb, talking about the medicinal qualities of food.
My clinic is at the Dolphin House Charity, Brighton where I am also a Trustee, as well as Northlands Wood GP Medical Practice in Haywards Heath.

I am registered with the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), as well as the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

A very cheap curry to make, especially if you have a late autumn crop of tomatoes to use up like I did. It’s nutrient packed, delivering lots of the antioxidant lycopene from the tomatoes, quercetin from the onions as well as anti-inflammatory turmeric and anti-bacterial garlic. And it tastes great too! Ingredients: 2 medium red… more
