My Personal Story

As most nutrition practitioners do, I have a history of health issues that led me to nutrition.

I suffered through childhood with constant nausea, colds and infections, bloating, abdominal pain, low moods and weight problems.

In my early teens I was diagnosed with severe anxiety. I suffered from frequent migraines and headaches, I was diagnosed with fibrocystic breast disease, and my digestive issues got worse. If that wasn’t enough, I developed emotional eating and binging.

In my early twenties I was overweight, suffering from IBS and I was diagnosed with depression.

In my early thirties I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries syndrome (PCOS), I suffered from depression, my anxiety sky rocketed and I suffered from daily panic attacks. Later on I developed severe food intolerances.

I was thoroughly frustrated with the conventional medicine approach, so I started to look into influence of diet and nutrition.

I was told by my doctor that diet would have no effect but I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I believed I was eating healthy foods, following nutritional and health guidelines from books, TV, magazines and the government. Being naturally very curious and drawn to researching, I soon realised that my “healthy” food was making me ill. 

I overcame my health problems with only nutrition, lifestyle medicine and supplements.

I learned that we are all biochemically unique and what works for one person doesn’t work for another. I healed myself by learning what works for me. I learned to listen to my body and my symptoms. I identified and addressed the root cause, and I supported the underlying imbalance instead of simply suppressing the symptoms.

I experienced first-hand the healing power of nutrition and lifestyle changes to improve my health. I wanted to get better understanding of the science of nutrition and nutritional therapy, in order to help others transform their own health.

Keen to continue learning about nutrition, I decided to enrol at the highly respected College of Naturopathic Medicine in London to study Nutrition. Following three years of studies in Biomedicine and Nutrition with clinical practice, I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist.

My health problems were the reason I qualified as a Nutritionist to be able to help others. With my combined qualification and first-hand experience, my aim is to help you support your health naturally and to restore you to optimal self.

I look forward to working together.
