Fuel for Life nutrition book

I love food and I love to feel good. Combining these two resulted in me becoming a nutritional therapist. After many years of working with clients, teaching courses and developing recipes, I still enjoy every single working day. To share my knowledge and see people’s physical and mental health improve and flourish is a true joy.


I believe in a holistic approach to improving health, focussing not only on diet, but also on how to think outside the box, reduce stress,  have better mental health and live a more satisfying life in general.


I started my career in 2010 as a dietary educator and since then I have seen hundreds of clients worldwide. While working as a therapist in Asia I gained thorough knowledge of Eastern ways of looking at wellbeing. This, combined with my Western education, has enabled me to approach each client in a very individualised, non-standardized way.

Fields of expertise:

  • Plant Based Diets

  • Mental Health and Anxiety

  • Ketogenic diets

  • Digestive disorders

  • Alzheimer's disease

​I also have a passion for going out into the woods and finding all sorts of edibles!


I hold a BSc (Hons) degree in Nutrition, have undergone additional studies in Ayurveda, TCM, Sports Nutrition, Plant Based Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis and NLP and am registered with the professional body BANT, the CNHC and am insured to practice.

With little time or patience for Social Media, it is best to contact me by phone or email.

I'm always happy to have a brief chat over the phone before deciding if you'd like to work with me.
