I set up the business in 2013 to fulfil a niche in the market for my highly personalised and committed approach to advising and supporting clients to address their nutritional needs and habits and transform their health.
I work with individuals who need to perform in their work and private lives including successful professional business owners and senior personnel, as well as support a number of high-profile personal trainers, boutique spas and members clubs.
My philosophy is that the gut, both in terms of our gastrointestinal workings and also as an emotional system, is at the core of our well-being, and that our diets should be based around ‘real food' - that is food in its simplest forms - un-tampered and uncomplicated nourishing raw ingredients which are products of nature - not industry.
“With so much 'noise', sometimes it may seem hard to know how to approach a balanced, tasty and nutritious diet.”
Incorporating a wide variety of highly nourishing and delicious 'real foods' is, in my view, also the most pleasurable and sustainable route to life-long health and wellbeing.
However, my fresh, creative approach goes beyond nutrition and food - it's about enabling my clients to identify all the areas of their lifestyles that they can better 'nourish' to the benefit of their bodies and minds.
Since achieving my Diploma in Nutritional Therapy, I have undertaken further training specialising in weight issues, and have studied with the National Centre for Eating Disorders.
I am an associate of Patrick Holford's Zest4Life and incorporate Zest4Life eating plans and coaching tools into Gut Reaction's programmes as appropriate. Zest4Life combines nutritional expertise with health and motivational coaching to help ensure clients really are successful in implementing lifestyle changes.
I am a full member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and adhere to the strict BANT Code of Ethics and Practice, and am a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). Gut Reaction is fully insured for Nutritional Therapy.
