Cancer is not random, it’s personal

Specialising in breast cancer support was a natural choice following my own diagnosis twenty-five years ago. Despite excellent medical care I knew I needed more than medicine to ensure long term survival – but there was nothing available. As soon as I recovered I went back to college to train as a nutritional therapist with the goal of helping other women rebuild health and happiness after diagnosis.

Survival rates have improved since then but the NHS still struggles to acknowledge the bigger picture, and lacks the resources to offer personalised protocols. Working with me offers the individual attention that you need to make more informed and personal choices about your diagnosis.

While the science is complex, my approach is simple: to promote the right conditions for natural healing. My work is firmly evidence-based, using a functional medicine approach and a breast-cancer focussed methodology that I have developed over the last eighteen years. The protocol can of course be tailored to work with and around conventional and complementary therapies.

In my view, the emerging field of nutrigenomics is a vital missing link for cancer patients, pinpointing unique vulnerabilities, and highlighting areas that can benefit from additional diet and lifestyle support. Nutrigenomics adds a fundamental level of support and a reassuring element of personalisation. DNA tests are for life; the test can be done at any time, and the results form the basis of a long term recovery strategy.

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… deserve an OBE for all that you have achieved and continue to offer
