Empowering Your Recovery

In 2019 respected healthcare institutions called for a focus on ‘prehabilitation’ in the delivery of cancer care across the UK, including nutrition, exercise and psychological support’ to improve treatment options, side effects and recovery. The acknowledgment that diet and lifestyle can have a direct impact on treatment outcomes has been a long time coming. It’s an approach I’ve been advocating for more than 20 years, and one that I’m uniquely qualified to provide.

As well as being a 23-year survivor of Stage 3, Grade 3, receptor negative breast cancer, I have 17 years clinical experience as a nutritional therapist, nutrigenetic counsellor and life coach. Treating cancer is strictly a job for your oncologist. My role is to help women do everything else they possibly can to beat breast cancer: tailoring diet and lifestyle to diagnosis and receptor status, identifying personal risk factors that may impact long term health and recovery, and working with the research to support better outcomes. Cancer is the diagnosis we all dread, but it can also be a wake up call to reclaim our power, restore our health and revamp our lives.

To find out more about me and how I work you can listen to a recent podcast, explore the site, read the blog posts and, when you’re ready, head over to my booking page and book a free exploratory chat.

NB During the coronavirus pandemic I have taken the precaution of moving all clinic appointments to virtual meetings.

The plethora of books and advice out there is confusing to say the least.  Your ability to distil the latest research and give sensible practical advice on how to make changes to our diets I personally find invaluable.

I just wanted to add my voice to the admiration and encouragement for your next steps, it’s a fantastic idea and I eagerly look forward to seeing what emerges, you are such a positive, informative and supportive resource for women with breast cancer, if ever you feel that your voice is being minimised by those with narrower narratives than yours (medical modal etc) just remember the community of women and medical professionals who do believe in your vast expertise and passion…..you deserve an OBE for all that you have achieved and continue to offer
