About me

I have been interested in healthy foods and lifestyle all my life, but a serious motorbike accident in my early 30's really changed the way I live and what I eat. My background before nutrition studies was in International Business and I have worked in Finland, Holland and France, and graduated from the Grenoble Graduate School of Business with an MBA (Masters of Business Administration). Now I enjoy helping people to feel better, and my magnificent Irish Wolfhound dog takes me on daily walks in the beautiful Peak District National Park.

I do not believe in following a restrictive diet and I truly believe that home cooked, whole, natural food is the most positive step you can make in taking control of your health. However, everyone’s body is unique and reacts in different ways to the foods we feed it. I aim to show you the link between your symptoms and the food you may be eating. I will show you alternatives and how to procure and produce healthy food. I will inspire you to make changes as you gain control and bring the body back into balance. I will work with you to create a new lifestyle, something that works for you. As one of my clients said:

The results of following your advice has been a marked and sustained improvement in my general health' and has considerably lessened the impact of IBS on my day to day activities. I have found your approach extremely helpful and would like to thank you again for coming up with an effective way of tackling my IBS that has translated into a notable improvement in my quality of life. – Tony H
