Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of optimum health and peak performance. Nutritional therapy takes an individually tailored approach to restoring effective digestion and correcting nutritional imbalances which may be causing or contributing to symptoms of poor health.

Your need for nutrients is highly individual. Nutrients, from food, are vital to health because they are the driving force behind every process in the body. However, factors such as your inherited strengths and weakness, your state of health, lifestyle, and environment and, of course, your dietary history all influence your need.

Inadequate nutrients may cause minor symptoms initially, but in the longer term they can be a significant factor in the development of chronic or degenerative disease. So whether you are just lacking energy or trying to manage a long term condition such as heart disease or diabetes, nutritional therapy may help.

Nutritional Therapy FAQs

The initial consultation will take about 90 minutes during which Kate will take a detailed history and may recommend a variety of biochemical and other types of clinical assessment to establish your nutritional status and functional capacity. Kate will work with you to set realistic goals which can change old habits, restore your body’s natural healing potential and empower you to take control of your health.

If indicated, Kate is able to offer non-invasive screening for nutritional deficiencies together with food and environmental allergy testing using the most up to date bio-dermal clinical screening technology.

Our Senior Nutritional Therapist

My interest in nutrition began over 20 years ago, whilst I was working in a highly pressurised role and stressful environment. I had crippling IBS symptoms, and realised that my diet was having a big impact on how I was feeling – so I went to see a Nutritional Therapist. This was the beginning of my nutrition journey and set me on a path to becoming a degree-qualified Registered Nutritional Therapist (rCNHC) and Registered Nutritionist (mBANT) in 2006. I am absolutely passionate about helping people to understand the connection between food and their wellbeing, and my role is to support YOU on your own journey to better health and performance.

Nutritional therapy supports the whole person, rather than separate parts of the body, and addresses the underlying causes of illness, rather than the symptoms – this systems biology-based approach is known as Functional Medicine. In clinic, I use the principles of Functional Medicine to provide you with personalised nutrition and lifestyle support, with sensible, practical, safe and evidence-based advice.

I’m especially interested in the following areas: digestion and gut health, hormone issues, immunity and auto-immune conditions (I have Rheumatoid Arthritis myself), cancer, learning disorders, sleep, skin, energy, stress and adrenal fatigue. My clients often come to see me with a number of health issues that they may wish to address.

For the last 13 years I have been working with people of all ages, including children. The way I operate is to work in collaboration with you, setting achievable goals and using tools to encourage healthy dietary habits. I guide you through the changes to help address your health issues and enable you to achieve your objectives. I may also recommend functional testing if further investigation is warranted, and supplements where there is a need. Whilst there is a place for supplementation on a temporary basis, my many years of clinical practice has re-affirmed to me that obtaining nutrients from real food is the key to restoring a healthful balance. But it is not just diet that has a profound impact on body and mind – lifestyle factors are a key part of the health and wellness puzzle too, and recommendations may also be made for making positive lifestyle changes in order to bring about more effective change. I also prefer to work in an integrative style alongside medical doctors and other practitioners who may have a role in supporting you.

As well as my work in clinic, I am involved with organisations that help to shape the nutrition profession. This includes the British Association of Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), where I sit on the Professional Practice Committee with a role in upholding the professional standards of Nutritional Therapists, and also the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), where I lecture and work part-time.  I am the Nutritionist for a number of organisations including DDB Adam & Eve, The Body Retreat, and Bundle. I run nutrition workshops (look out for these on the ReCentre website), and I am often invited to speak at nutrition-related events and to make comment in nutrition-related publications.  Last year I was a keynote speaker at the London GP Trainee conference talking about the role of personalised nutrition in prevention of chronic disease.

I am fully insured and I keep up to date with all the latest research by attending continual professional development courses and seminars, and I am a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine while currently training to become a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner.

If you would like to chat further about any of this or how Nutritional Therapy might be helpful for you, I am really happy to do this over the telephone so please do give me a buzz on 07870 242 916.  Alternatively please don’t hesitate to email me if you would prefer.

TESTIMONIALS

“I just want to say thanks for all of your help in changing my diet. I feel so much happier and healthier now and I'm so glad I found you! You gave me the push I needed to change things around. I have recommended you to some of my friends who are in the similar mum 'cake eating' phase! I think it's easy to say you want to change but harder to actually make the steps to change. Still, I hope for their sake, they give you a call as I feel that it's worth every penny. Now, I am nutritionally set for life!”

Becky, London

“This has been my first experience of seeing a nutritionist and I cannot recommend Kate enough. After 2 years of digestive problems and a collection of acute and chronic symptoms including pain, early satiety, constipation and an inability to taste properly, plus a weakened immune system – all of which had baffled doctors – and ultimately being diagnosed as IBS, I now am pain-free: able to eat normally and taste and enjoy my food again; I sleep better; am a healthy weight and feel much more energetic. In addition, I feel I know more about the workings of the gut and how important it is to keep it well maintained.”

Pamela, Surrey

“I have felt the benefits of your nutritional therapy for the migraine and fatigue condition I have been suffering from. Your diet advice has been enlightening and it is great to feel that I can do something to help myself.”

Annabel, London

“Going to see Kate has literally been life-changing. I previously had a very unhealthy relationship with food and was making my food choices for all the wrong reasons. Her assessment of my situation and needs was very thorough and her guidance was clear and easy to follow. In a short space of time she got me eating and feeling better than I have done for years, and choosing foods which are not only very good for me but extremely tasty!”

Anna, SW London

“I started my nutritional therapy 2 years ago when I was at an unhealthy weight and had an unhealthy relationship with food. Kate has taught me how to look at food in terms of nutrition, not calories. Learning how to structure my meals and make healthier substitutes. I found my therapy very supportive and by no means judgemental. Kate is encouraging and supportive. I’d highly recommend her service.”

Daphne, London
