As a Qualified Nutritional Chef...

I have been lucky enough to be trained at Leith's School in London, the Diet Specialists and the Health Science Academy and encountered many experiences with food over the years. Creating menus and dishes that are balanced has been a large part of my life and understanding the nutritional values of food and what impact they have on the human body enables me to provide positive and practical advice on eating.

As a Mum of 3 Children...

I have experienced many lessons learned with food! Weaning 3 babies without the use of processed, pre-made foods was a huge part of my life for some time. Addressing issues with fussy eaters but still keeping good food habits has been overcome with sanity intact.

As an Individual Who has Embarked on Both Weight Loss Schemes and Weight Sustaining...

I have a deep understanding of the complex relationships with food. The importance of creating good food habits for life far out weighs any quick fix diet, that seems to create even more weight gain in the long run! I do not use diets in my approach to Weight Loss and focus on quality of life, helping individuals being and feeling the best they can.

As A Coach...

Coaching is a highly effective way to get the support you need to make positive, enforced change in to your life, whatever the objective. As a trained coach, I can help you find the motivation to kick start a new you, whatever your nutrition or eating goals are. General Food Coaching can be offered as a "one off" or block booking and can help understand symptoms and issues related to lifestyle and food choices.

As an Exercise Lover...

Having come from a background of "exercise hating", never enjoying school sports or embarking on any form of exercise as an adult, I have turned myself around! Literally! I can provide coaching and advice on lifestyle changes, to enable you to find the love for exercise...it's possible! I can advise you on the nutrition requirements and help you find a better/realistic/healthy balance of exercise and activity in your life.

Code Of Conduct

Please note, I work with clients, ensuring their safety and health at all times. If I feel you have "red flag" symptoms, or conditions that could be effected by a change in diet, I will refer you to your GP or Specialist for their advice.

My ethos is that I help you find ways to make changes to your food intake to keep you within Government backed guidelines, ensuring optimum health for your body type and condition.

I do not practice sessions that Trained Healthcare Providers should be part of and will always refer you on if this is something you need.

I have full professional insurance and registered as a working Food Business with my local Council, in keeping with their standards and procedures. Please contact me if you would like to discuss my practice further.
