After being diagnosed with a chronic disease over 20 years ago I was lucky enough to be pointed in the direction of nutrition by my father a now retired GP, my mother a retired Intensive care nurse and latterly my brother who is currently a GP. My parents led me in the direction of nutrition as they always encouraged me to take a keen interest in healthy meals and I can still remember when I was younger being one of the first to know about the importance of reducing salt to help blood pressure and the goodness that fibre had to offer. We had wholegrain bread years before anyone else when I was at school.
After getting well with the aid of nutrition and seeing how powerful it was it made sense to study it in depth to increase my knowledge and understanding hence I started my journey with nutrition with a personal need to look after myself and a desire to help other people who didn’t know how helpful and life changing it could be.
I studied at the Institute for Optimum Health which was founded by Patrick Holford who is also the author of numerous books such as the best seller ‘The Optimum Nutrition Bible.’
Once qualified I set up Smart Nutrition where I can now offers a broad range of services from consultations, health tests a digestive health clinic to help you to achieve optimum health so that you can enjoy life and attain your goals.
I lectured widely for 10+ years at many of the top UK nutrition colleges including ION CNM, Raworth and Paragon as well as being clinic director for CNM which enabled them to reach NTC accreditation.
I have also written widely for a number of publications – please see the media section of the website for examples.
I worked at the award winning IBS and Gut disorders centre for 2 years before setting up my own IBS clinic.
I have been working in the field of complimentary medicine for over 17 years now and have been practicing as a nutritional therapist for over 15 of these as well as spending time in the supplement industry.
I am also registered with the NTC – Nutritional Therapy Council (NTC)
