I’m a nutritional therapist and life coach using a functional medicine approach, with a special interest in helping people manage diagnosis, treatment and recovery from breast cancer. I view obesity and type 2 diabetes as ‘pre-cancerous’ conditions and I’m keen to help you find healthy, drug free solutions to these too.

I have worked in private practice since 2003 when I graduated with distinction from ION. Since then I have continuously developed my clinical and academic career through studying, lecturing and writing, educating both clients and other health professionals about the life-changing benefits of nutrition. I’m also a breast cancer survivor, having been diagnosed with grade three, stage three breast cancer in 1997, at the tender age of thirty-three.

To help support clients with the psychological and motivational aspects of recovery I completed a professional life coaching qualification in 2011, and I’m currently increasing my specialist knowledge with a postgraduate certificate in Personalised Nutrition at CNELM during 2016 and further studies with the Institute for Functional medicine planned for Spring 2017. In 2012 I wrote The Dissident Diet to help people lose weight.

My education, clinical and personal history have shown me that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to diet. Our individual genes, biochemistry and lifestyle lead to metabolic imbalances that can quickly respond to nutritional therapy. My mission is to make it easier for you to look after yourself as a natural and automatic part of daily life and to be here for you when you need extra support with that.

You can find out more about my approach by following the blog, cooking the recipes, reading my books, and keeping an eye out for updates on Facebook. When you’re ready, get in touch to make an appointment.

Thanks for visiting! 


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.



You helped me see that there are things you can do to help yourself and you know what changes to make if you give yourself enough time, thought and kindness.
