I work with people who feel their mental health is preventing them live their life to the full.
My journey into nutritional therapy began after a period of ill-health and I began exploring a more holistic approach to health, both physical and mental, encouraging me to learn more and developing a passion for wanting to help others.
I have always had an interest in a more holistic approach to health and this led me into studying a foundation degree in Complementary Healthcare, at the University of Brighton graduating with distinction. I studied massage, reflexology, aromatherapy and nutrition.
I became fascinated with the link between food and health, and this prompted me to study further. I embarked on a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy with the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London, graduating with merit. I am a member of the Professional bodies BANT (British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy) and CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) and adhere to their code of ethics.
I also work as a Mental Health Recovery worker and my particular interest is the link between diet and mental health. I firmly believe there is a strong connection between diet and lifestyle which impacts on our mental health.

My particular field of interest is supporting people in mental health recovery. Working as a recovery worker giving me valuable experience in supporting people with mental ill-health be that due to stress, depression, anxiety or more complex reasons. I am happy to work alongside Mental Health Professionals as a nutritional therapist aiding people in their recovery through diet and supplements, seeking to promote better mental health.
