I am a clinical nutritionist, health coach, writer and educator, dedicated to the integrative and holistic care of children and adults with chronic physical and mental health conditions. I am a certified MINDD practitioner and have a special interest in paediatric nutrition and children’s health, including food intolerances, fussy eating and behavioural, neurological, immune, respiratory, digestive and skin disorders. I am passionate about delving into the causes, imbalances and triggers behind behaviours and conditions, and want to know what foods, nutrients, environmental and lifestyle factors need to be modified in order to achieve the very best health outcomes. I believe in the importance of building a therapeutic relationship with each individual and I am passionate about preparing and supporting everyone to find their own solutions and pathways to health and wellbeing. I construct comprehensive, tailor-made health, diet and lifestyle solutions that are realistic and manageable and benefit the long-term wellness outcomes of children, adults and the whole family.
