I’m an experienced nutritional therapist, educator and writer with a passion for helping people to transform their health and to enjoy delicious nourishing real food.
Since graduating with a BSc. in Nutritional Medicine in 2012, I have offered a Nutritional Therapy Service at the well-established Natural Health Clinic and Run and Become in Cardiff, appeared on local TV news, regularly contributed to the media, websites and apps, such as Nutritionist Resource, WatchFit and Nootric, provided corporate events involving presentations and drop-in clinics, worked for the highly-regarded Institute for Optimum Nutrition, plus I am involved in the development of the PILIPALA app for people affected by thyroid conditions.
My background is in NHS Cancer Services and education. Working as a Radiographer in Oncology and as a Cancer Information Officer I received frequent enquiries from patients affected by cancer, seeking nutritional advice. As a result, I identified the need to provide this support in conjunction with medical care. I have always had an interest in nutrition, complementary medicine and sport, and to date this has been fulfilled by hobbies, studying massage and writing a dissertation on complementary therapies in cancer care. This prompted me to study Nutritional Medicine to enable me to use this specialist knowledge in addition to my experience in Oncology, patient information provision, and teaching, to offer nutritional support to people to help them realise their health potential.
