Are you ready to take control of your health? I am a degree qualified registered Nutritional Therapist, based in Hertfordshire and London. If you want to get back your health and vitality, let me show you how.
Do you feel your body is letting you down and you don't know why?
Do you suffer from any of the following?
- IBS-type symptoms such as bloating and stomach cramps, unexplained headaches, fatigue and/or lack of ability to concentrate properly?
- Hormonal issues such painful periods, PCOS, endometriosis or peri/menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, mood swings and abdominal weight gain?
- Suspected food intolerances and allergies perhaps accompanied by brain fog and a lack of energy?
- Inability to lose weight despite repeated efforts, perhaps diagnosed by your GP with hypothyroidism, high cholesterol, type-2-diabetes or suffer with depression or specific auto-immune conditions?
- Are you an athlete who suffers from GI issues during races and training, your feel your recovery post training is slower than it should be and/or you have a general loss of ‘mojo’?
If you suffer from any of these and you would like to get to the root cause of your symptoms and feel re-energised, Nutritional Therapy may be for you. Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutritional science to promote health, peak performance and individual care. Its application can help support many chronic conditions such as IBS, hormonal imbalances, headaches, food intolerances, sensitivities and allergies, skin conditions, chronic fatigue and auto-immune conditions such as celiac disease through a combination of diet and lifestyle adaptions (such as sleep, exercise and stress management).
My name is Katherine and I love using my knowledge and skills to help others, empowering you to make long-term, sustainable changes. I work with highly-motivated individuals who have made the decision to take control of their health but perhaps don’t know where to start, or have tried everything and got no-where. I also work specifically with athletes which can include recreational park-runners, competitive age-groupers and professionals, helping them with a number of underlying health-issues that may be impacting both their performance and other areas of their lives.
Work with me
I work with a wide range of clients and offer a number of services:
Personalised Nutrition for Health and Wellness
This is for anyone who is looking to take control of their health. It is appropriate to support a wide range of conditions/symptoms from weight loss to many debilitating, long-term chronic conditions. It is also appropriate if you just have a building number of ‘niggles’ that can be dismissed as part of ‘getting older’ but you wish to be preventative, you feel there is more you can be doing to help reduce the risks associated with ageing.Find Out More
Functional Sports Nutrition for Performance
This is for recreational and competitive athletes. This always begins with looking at your underlying health and correcting any imbalances using a systems-based approach before focusing on the more traditional macro-nutrient breakdown and supplements for performance. Athletes frequently push their body’s to their limit in sport, at work and play which can build-up to have a longer-term impact on your body and performance.Find Out More
Do you find yourself resorting to ready-made meals or take-aways when you know you shouldn’t or cooking four different meals to account for food intolerances and fussy-eaters? We all do the best we can for our family but stress is endemic in our lives now days and with both mothers and fathers often juggling full-time careers, food choices and lifestyle decisions can become compromised. This is a highly personalised service to include not only nutritional assessments and relevant tests for the whole family but also hands-on lifestyle advise.Find Out More
Corporate Seminars and Talks
Katherine loves empowering others using a combination of educational talks and practical advise which she gives to a wide range of audiences. Examples include going into the workplace and showing how diet and lifestyle can be used to support stress to improve well-being and productivity in the work place. Packages can be constructed to include testing such as functional blood panels for groups of executives where appropriate to tailor advise.
Please contact Katherine for further details.Find Out More
Tell me more how Nutritional Therapy works.
I practise Nutritional Therapy within the ‘functional medicine model’ which looks to address the root cause of imbalances within the various body systems, rather than the simply suppress symptoms as typically happens under conventional care. As a result of this it is not a ‘quick fix’ but can require lifestyle and behaviour modifications which we work on together, highlighting the importance of a mutually-respectful ‘client-practitioner’ relationship. Your body’s systems (see FAQs for more detail) are all interconnected in a non-linear fashion, akin to a spiders’ web, and understanding in detail your genetics, diet, lifestyle and environmental factors will help to unravel this.
As a Nutritional Therapist, I have a wide range of tools to use and one of these is functional scientific testing which is used to help target nutritional interventions and understand in greater detail what is going on at a cellular level inside your body. This is done a case-by-case basis and based on personal situation, history and presenting symptoms.
Finally, alongside determining the imbalances in your body and helping you correct them, I look to educate and empower you as we work together so when we part you are able to understand how your body works, how to ensure it continues to work optimally and to be motivated to sustain the changes long term. To be the you you want to be!
