Having spent many years suffering from Thrush, Athlete’s Foot, chronic constipation, digestive problems and fatigue, I finally gave up on conventional medicine and was eventually diagnosed with Candidiasis by a colonic hydrotherapist.  She sent me off to a nutritional therapist and I finally got my life back.

This was a turning point in my life and I then trained as a Clinical Nutritionist at one of the UK’s leading London colleges, the British College of Nutrition & Health, where I earned a Dip BCNH qualification after three and a half years of study. I am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners (FNTP), as well as a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine.

I quickly realised that I needed to expand my knowledge to deal with emotional as well as physical issues and that, as good as nutritional therapy is, this was only part of the story. Since then I have trained in Kinesiology, EFT, NAET, Bowen Technique, NES, Colonic Hydrotherapy and Live Blood Microscopy in order to offer my clients a completely holistic experience.

I believe that we need to look at the whole picture in order to resolve our health issues and return to full health and this is the approach I take with my clients.

I offer a Sunday clinic for children (up to the age of 14) for which there is no charge but a small donation to my charity box is appreciated.  This means that parents who might not have the opportunity to bring their children along to my general clinic are able to take advantage of my services and, in return, local charities benefit – namely the Sevenoaks branch of Mencap.

I am passionate about what I do and strongly believe that good heath is the right of everyone.  I do not diagnose and always recommend that my clients see their general practitioner if appropriate.
