The way we feel about food has a significant impact on our overall health and wellbeing. Whether you want to make a few simple changes to your diet or are seeking a healthier relationship with food, I am here to help.
As a Registered Dietician and Nutritionist I’m passionate about the role food plays in our lives. It’s often easy to forget that food is fuel, so developing a positive relationship with the things we eat is essential for overall wellness. With my help, you will learn to think about food in a healthier way, addressing common issues such as:
A 2017 report found that adults don’t eat enough fruit, veg, seeds, nuts and wholegrains in their diets, while processed foods and sugar are on the rise. This has had a severe impact on people’s health and wellbeing, as well as placing a burden on health services. To ensure optimum physical and mental health, a diet that consists of foods that heal and replenish is essential, but it’s not always easy. As the pressures of everyday life continue to grow, we are more likely to make food choices based on convenience and stress, making life even more stressful in the process.
I begin every programme with a thorough assessment of your eating habits, medical history and current relationship with food. Together we will create a bespoke plan that empowers you to make healthier choices, and in just a short period of time eating well will become a way of life.
I will help you achieve your nutritional goals, learn about food and feel healthier and happier than ever. Eating well can improve your life in various ways, including:
