So you’re tired, you’re busy. You want to be healthier. You want to cook from scratch, stay away from processed foods and sugar. You want to feel calm and in control and happy in the knowledge you are looking after yourself and your family.
I get it. I have young kids and I seem to squeeze every minute out of every day and there doesn’t seem to be much time for extras once the essentials of work, chores, looking after everyone and a little bit of fun time are done.
But there’s another way to do this.
I work with the individual, to provide bespoke nutrition and health advice appropriate not only for your personal health background but for your lifestyle.
I always take into consideration the day to day obligations and we work together to find ways to fit small changes in that will make a vast difference to the way you feel.
I work closely with my clients giving lots of support and accountability and they find, very soon, that they have created habits that are easy to keep.
Why see a nutritional therapist?
Do you want to feel better?
Are you fed up of feeling rubbish all the time?
Have you not been able to find out the source or the root of your tiredness / headaches / bloating / mood swings / *insert your own?
Do you feel vulnerable because there are signs that your body is not functioning as it should?
Nutritional therapy works by assessing the whole person and working out weak spots or areas where there may be strain on your system. Once we know where these areas are, I can advise on how to strengthen and support them – usually with diet adjustments, some slight shifts in lifestyle and some select and good quality supplements (although these are optional).
Basically the body wants to run smoothly and be healthy and it’s very good at healing, but it needs the right tools to do that. I’m here to find out what those tools are and give them to you.
A few years back I was offered redundancy and a good payout at nearly 9 months pregnant. This baby had been a long time coming and although I really enjoyed my then work life it felt like the stars were aligned for change and this was a huge opportunity so I grabbed it.
I saw an amazing chance to be able to retrain to work flexibly, work from home, and be around and available when the baby was growing up. Perhaps because I was an older mum or perhaps because I didn’t have the traditional upbringing, this was important to me.
After a long love affair with all things nutrition and alternative health therapies, the obvious route was this one, and what better way to educate myself when having a brand new small person to nurture.
My own journey was one of fertility and thyroid issues and the preceding years of a party lifestyle taking their toll and making me exhausted, slightly troubled and way less fun.
What I learnt through personal research and consequently through my nutrition studies, is that small changes can make a huge difference to the way you feel on a daily basis, and that tweaking things can give your body what it’s craving so it can become healthy again. I’m living proof of this.
Now I wake up with lots of energy and feeling good, and most days I’m excited about the day ahead. This is what I want for my clients.
