I am a Weight Loss Consultant with a background in both Nutrition and Psychology. I previously worked in private practice as a BANT (British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy)and CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) registered Nutritional Therapist. Prior to this, I completed an MSc in Health Psychology, where I carried out a research dissertation looking at self-efficacy for weight control behaviours. I now primarily work as a Weight Loss Consultant.
I started Personal Training with Chris once a week at his studio in Bagshot in February 2012. Previous to that I had been a member of a gym but not attended for at least 4 months. I had lostmotivation, put weight on after Christmas and at 42 years old knew it would only get worse. I needed a good kick-start! My weight when I started training was between 10st and 10st 3lbs and I was a size 10 -12 and 5ft 5inches tall.
I am a fully qualified nutritional therapist having studied at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London. Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science that helps you achieve optimalhealth and vitality and promotes disease prevention. Good health should never just be about the absence of disease, but about enjoying the best possible health, physically and mentally to live life to the full.
I work in a whole body and deep cellular way to peel away the layers of dis-ease 'like peeling an onion'. I work to optimise your food/nutrition intake ensuring what, when and how you eat fits yourindividual needs. I also work with using food and wholefood state nutritional supplements, which the body recognises as food to create optimum nutrition for the body. Working deeply into the body enables access to the root causes rather than just looking at symptoms of health issues.
Do you have problems with fertility? Are you feeling fatigued, over-tired and lacking in energy? Do you need help with weight loss? Do you have heavy periods or suffer with PMT? Do you have lessenergy than you used to? Do you want to improve your skin? Do you have menstrual problems? Do you want to feel happier and less stressed? Have you been diagnosed with hypertension, high cholesterol or insulin resistance? Do you feel bloated and uncomfortable, or suffer with stomach cramps?
Nutritional therapy combines nutritional science with an individually centered regime to promote optimum health and combat a variety of health problems. Nutritional therapy recognises each person asan individual not just a set of symptoms and understands how the food we eat has an impact on the way our bodies function.
Whatever your disorder may be, nutrition is a must when considering which type of complementary therapy to choose. There are so many offered by a variety of professionals, but when it comes to thefoundation of good health, surely we should consider that a healthy body and mind stems from what we eat? Nutritional therapy by nature, works with or instead of, traditional conventional medicine.
