My personal experience in transforming my health through nutrition and lifestyle changes has given me a passion for helping others to do the same. My areas of particular interest are digestive problems such as irritable bowel syndrome, weight loss, thyroid problems, diabetes management and menopausal issues.

I am a research scientist by training, specialising in immunology and asthma, working at Guy’s Hospital. After completing my PhD I worked as a medical writer for over 25 years and had no particular thought of changing career. However, when I needed to lose weight, I unsurprisingly turned to science to find the answers. As I learned more about the way food choices affect the body’s functions, I became fascinated by nutrition, and understood that different people need different solutions to suit their individual needs. 

Despite having struggled with weight issues throughout my life, I discovered that once I found the right way of eating for me, I was able to lose 38kg (6 stone) easily and, more importantly, I was able to keep it off. For the first time in my life, my weight has been stable for several years and I noticed many healthy benefits from my new way of eating.

Following my successes, I started helping others to do the same, working as a coach for Ways of Eating - a company specialising in app-based weight loss programs. 

My experience with coaching online programs prompted me to want to do and learn more, so I trained as a Nutritional Therapist at Worcester University on a 2-year, Master's level postgraduate course, accredited by the Nutritional Therapy Education Commission. It may have come as a rather late change in career, but I absolutely love what I do now: being able to help people improve their health and well-being is so very rewarding.

I am registered with The Complementary and Natural Health care Council (CNHC) for Nutritional Therapy and am a member of The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT).
