More About Our Company

Individual nutritional & lifestyle support promoting optimal healt

Some people simply want to check that they are on the right track with regard to healthy eating. Others may want to lose weight or get help with their symptoms. Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body (skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive and integumentary (skin, hair, nails). Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations are support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological wellbeing, optimum gastrointestinal health and tolerance to a broad range of food groups.

I qualified with a Distinction in a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy in October 2010 and have been in practice as a Nutritional Therapist for the last six years using a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address any nutritional imbalance and help support the body towards maintaining health.

If you want to look and feel great, in my opinion you need to consider eating a balanced healthy diet, however busy lifestyles, hectic work schedules and reliance on foods and drinks packed with salt, sugar, fat and chemicals may make it difficult to be sure your diet is providing all of the nutrients your body needs.

I am also a fully insured experienced Advanced Practitioner of Psychotherapy, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Advanced Practitioner of BWRT® (Brainworking Recursive Therapy), Assessor and Accredited Member of the Brainworking Research Society and member of the CNHC (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council) working from the Southend on Sea area. I specialise in anxieties, fears and phobias and also weight loss, using my nutritional qualifications to aid hypnotherapy and psychotherapy - see specialities..

Since 2013 I have had the privilege to be a Brainworking Recursive Therapy Licensed Practitioner (BWRT®) and Advanced Practitioner Level 2 in May 2015 and progeressing to Level 3 in 2018, this exciting new therapy has now become a very integral part of my practice. BWRT® is a modern dynamic therapy which does not rely on formal hypnosis which may change behavioural patterns and responses in as little as two sessions, ideal for most anxieties, fears, phobias. See specialities. In May 2015 I trained as a Level 2 BWRT® Practitioner, able to deal with more resistant conditions such as addictions, obsessions, eating disorders, bullying, depression and more.

I am also BWRT Transformational Coach and Supervisor/ Assessor and accredited member for The British BrainWorking Research Society' supervising and assessing practitioners, running workshops, assisting the Institute with Level 2 training events and advising generally on BWRT®.

In 2019 I attended an Eating Disorders course with the National Centre for Eating Disorders and Obesity and am working towards a Degree Level qualification.

I regularly update my qualifications and skills by attending extensive training sessions to learn new skills as well as continual professional development as required by my independent governing association the APHP.
