Like many in this field of work, I have experienced my own health journey. I struggled with a post-natal thyroid disorder after each of my pregnancies. The first time around, I was misdiagnosed and the effect of that left me feeling frustrated and confused. When the all too familiar symptoms of insomnia, racing heart, anxiety and weight loss occurred again after my second son was born, I knew that I had to get to the bottom of it.
It was only after working with a Nutritionist and implementing personalised nutrition & lifestyle modifications that I was finally able to take charge of my health. With my hormones balanced, my sleep and energy improved and I began to feel like myself again.
This experience ignited a passion in me to want to help others transform their health and lives through the power of Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine.
In 2013, a move and a change in life circumstances allowed me to follow my passion and train as a Nutritional Therapist. I qualified in 2016, having studied at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London for 3 years. I undertook 200 hours of clinical training during this period and I regularly attend continuing professional development (CPD) seminars and training programmes to stay up to date on the latest research in the field.
I offer one to one Nutritional Therapy consultations online and in-person in London. I am a registered member of BANT (British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy and CNHC (Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council).

Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function.
The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches health care professional’s how to apply these principles in practice through an intensive 5 day training course called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™. I attended and completed the AFMCP™-UK training in London in 2018.
