Until 7 years ago, I thought I knew the wonder of food... for fuel... for joy. But when life threw up a chronic gastro-intestinal diagnosis for my husband, the carefree connection disappeared as pain, medication + dark pharmaceutical forces came into play. Endless google-searches for management of the condition spawned slow glimmers of hope as I stumbled on ways to use food to protect the body + reduce symptoms naturally. And so, my journey into Nutritional Therapy began.
The first stop was 5 years back at University. In 2018, I graduated with a first-class bachelors degree in Nutritional Therapy where my academic foundation was set through studies, research + experience in clinical practice. With education came the deepest understanding of focusing on the 'whole person'.
Realising that every person's body tells a life story that's as imperfectly perfect as the next, means that from the moment we are born, we are in a continual state of breaking + mending ourselves. My own therapy began with the discovery of the interconnectivity of my own gynae health-history starting in my twenties, through 9 cycles of IVF, 3 babies + premature ovarian failure in my forties. I started rebalancing + recalibrating as I worked through those imbalances + my body began to feel my own again.
Fast forward to now, as a Nutritional Therapist I bring my clients to those same long-term, sustainable changes by working with them as a whole - by addressing imbalance we create harmony. In my practice, no two days are ever the same; from personal consultations to workshops in the kitchen here at The Pump House or when I'm out delivering workspace consultations in London.
Food now brings even more joy, as, used therapeutically it brings pure, raw + magical healing
