I am an Anglo Swedish nutritional therapist, cook, businesswoman and health coach.
In 2004 I took a break from my retail career and influenced by my Swedish grandmother’s and mother’s love of cooking and nutrition I decided to go to university to study nutritional therapy.
I graduated in 2008 and went on to practice as a nutritional therapist where I specialise in meal planning for individuals and families, weight loss, gastrointestinal disorders, health coaching and nutrition education, both privately and for the corporate sector. I have completed extensive additional training in children’s nutrition, obesity management and cardiovascular disease. I recently co wrote a Low FODMAP recipe and resource book for those who suffer from IBS which is available from http://menumentors.co.uk/fodmap/.
I don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach. I create individualised nutrition plans to suit your needs and have the skills and knowledge to help individuals and groups of people with cooking.
My aim is to address body imbalances by restoring function through food, lifestyle and supplement interventions. Diagnostic tests can also be arranged.
My focus is on long term behaviour change and health coaching particularly for weight loss, digestive disorders and healthy eating generally. It is my belief that sustainable weight loss is all about a change in behaviour and not just diet alone.
Corporate work – I regularly deliver nutrition related talks to companies and run healthy cooking team building workshops.
Media/PR – My recipes regularly feature in a wide range of national newspapers and magazines including Optimum Health Nutrition, Hello Magazine, BBC Good Food, Olive, Vegetarian Magazine and Zest. I have also appeared on Radio London as guest expert on children’s nutrition. I contributed to the Great British Spelt Recipe Book which was created by Sharpham Park to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK.
I am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), The Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council and The Association for the Study of Obesity.
