I am qualified with a BSc Hons 2:1 in Nutritional Therapy from Westminster University. I am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and am a member of the professional body for nutritional therapists BANT. I am fully insured.
Where I work
I see clients in Marylebone in central London: Charterhouse Clinic, 98 Crawford St, London, W1H 2HL, and on Eel Pie Island in Twickenham, west London.
The Charterhouse Clinic is in the heart of central London near three tube stations: Edgware Road (served by Bakerloo, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City Lines), Baker St (served by Bakerloo, Circle, Hammersmith & Circle Lines) and Marble Arch (served by Central Line). Marylebone Station mainline overground station is also nearby.
When walking along Crawford St, you’ll find Charterhouse Clinic at number 98 near the Seymour Place crossroad. There is a Revital health shop in the front window of the clinic.
Eel Pie Island, as the name suggests, is an island, and lies in the middle of the River Thames in the heart of Twickenham.
Twickenham is well served by buses including 281, 267, H22, R68, 490, R70, 290, 110, 681. Get off at the bus stop called ‘Twickenham King St’. Look for the Santander Bank, turn down Water Lane to the Embankment, and you’ll see the footbridge to Eel Pie Island. The walk from the bus stop to Eel Pie Island is about three minutes.
Twickenham mainline station is an eight-minute walk to the island.
There is limited paid metre parking on the mainland Embankment which is accessed via Water Lane off King St (look for the Santander Bank).
Consultations at your home, workplace or school can be arranged on request.
My practice and principles
My training is based on Functional Medicine. In Functional Medicine, rather than just looking at symptoms, practitioners seek to identify root causes underlying ill health.
As an example, let’s take weight. Did you know calorie intake is just a small part of the picture to attain and maintain healthy weight?
Your stress hormone levels, how well you are absorbing your food and how inflamed your body is (eg hay fever, asthma, eczema, so-called food allergies etc) can all have a major influence.
A Functional Medicine approach will have you eating the right types of food to balance your specific hormone imbalance, to absorb vitamins optimally in order to keep your metabolism working right, and to soothe inflammation rather than aggravate it.
This will not only make you feel better, but look better, too.
I believe in practical and enjoyable eating. I aim to identify which areas of your health can be tackled most effectively through the right food for you.
Cases are all different and sometimes medical testing and supplementation may be necessary to kick start you on the road to good health.
More on nutritional therapy
You’ve seen your GP. Your symptoms have not improved. You’re feeling below par. You may be low in vitamins or minerals or have an imbalance in your intake of the right fats. You could be short on protein or eating too much sugar and white, refined carbohydrates (rather than whole grains). Making targeted changes to your diet could help.
Nutritional therapy works well alongside conventional medicine. Nutritional therapists don’t diagnose. If you are suffering any health condition you should consult your GP before seeing me.
Initial nutritional therapy appointments are usually for one hour. This allocation of time really allows me as a nutritional therapist to listen to your story and make targeted interventions.
