My clients often ask me how I came to a career in Nutritional Therapy. Like many therapists, this was part of a long journey starting 20 years ago with my own health issues – at that time I was at university studying for my first degree and I had no idea that my lifestyle and diet were causing my symptoms and discomfort. I began to research informally and started to build a knowledge base and genuine fascination for the links between diet and health. However, this remained informal whilst I pursued careers firstly in the Environment Agency Sciences and then in Human Resources.
During a period of maternity leave, I realised that I would like a break from the Corporate world to pursue a career that I felt personally connected to and where I could make a real positive difference to peoples lives. So, I made the decision to re-train and turn my passion for health and well-being from a hobby into a career. Going back to my Science roots, Well Healthy Nutrition is the product of three years intensive study and continuous professional development into biochemistry, genetics and pathology and the critical role that nutrition and lifestyle play in supporting wellness. The course at the College of Naturopathic Medicine also required two years of clinical practice, preparing students for running their own clinics once qualified.
I am based in Bristol and I live with my daughter, normally working from home or from my clients homes. In my leisure time I enjoy performing with a local dance troupe, food, spending time with friends and family, cooking, gardening, music, cinema, yoga and snowboarding.
I am registered with both the British Association of Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) giving clients peace of mind when choosing me as their practitioner.
