I lived the familiar tale of yo–yo diets and fuelling my body with sugar and caffeine to keep up with my stressful, busy life. My eating was chaotic to say the least, and this had a negative impact on my weight, body-image and mental health.
I felt constantly under the weather and knew I needed to do something! Thats when I fell in love with nutrition, and was able to restore my own health and also empower others to do the same.
I realised that simply knowing what to eat wasn’t always enough, and have committed to developing and applying behavioural change techniques in my clinic.
I graduated from the internationally renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) with distinction, and received the award for the top performing student in my year. Further qualifications include an honours degree in Psychology and qualifications in Counselling. I have also qualified as a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders and Obesity at the National Centre for Eating Disorders which is approved by the British Psychological Society. I am also currently studying an MSc in Health Psychology. I have also worked for various charities in research.
I am registered with the;
o British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT)
o Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
The Eating Clinic is founded on the philosophy that a happy life, optimal health and wellness is about balance. I don't subscribe to restrictive eating regimes that are not sustainable, so if you’re looking for calorie controlled diets, I’m not the practitioner for you.
Food should be fun as well as nourishing, and it's surprising how small changes can have a big effect on how we feel. I educate my clients to learn how food and eating impacts on their health, emotions and behaviours. I don’t see food as good or bad, and will work to incorporate your favourite foods into your diet.
I want my clients to feel empowered to make changes to support their health that is built for them as an individual with freedom from restriction.
