My interest in the power of food, evolved after years of suffering with IBS, which led on to fatigue and joint pain. I wanted to understand why I was getting more symptoms and what I could do to feel better. Eating a correct varied and nutritious diet helped me to take back control of my health, to heal my gut and to regain my energy.
I studied nutritional therapy at The College of Naturopathic Medicine where I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist and Naturopath and went on to study with the Institute of Functional Medicine to increase my skills in order to focus on addressing the root cause of my clients health concerns.
Over the last few years I have become passionate about the importance of the mitochondria, the ‘power house of our cells’. Imagine when a battery has become flat, well the body behaves in a similar way when the mitochondria have nothing more to offer. Understanding the correct nutrition needed to power up the mitochondria now helps me support more and more of my clients suffering with a range of issues including chronic fatigue and ME, post viral symptoms, thyroid issues and weight loss.
Results are measured using a Vericard HRV machine.
In addition, I also use an energetic approach to support the total wellbeing of my clients.
I hope you will discover for yourself that I am truly passionate in supporting the wellbeing of all my clients and empowering them to make the necessary changes needed to feel fabulous.
I am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
I work from my clinic in Kingston as well as from The Groves Private GP Group in New Malden and The Osteoperformance Clinic in Wimbledon.

What are mitochondria
Each cell in the body can contain thousands of mitochondria and the number largely depends on the function of each cell. For example, heart and brain cells need much more mitochondria to generate energy and have about 6,000 mitochondria per cell.
The “mighty mitochondria” are the cellular powerhouses that keep your metabolism humming by consuming oxygen and turning sugars, fats and proteins that we eat, into forms of chemical energy called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
They help turn the energy we take in from carbohydrates, fats and protein into energy that the cell can use.
