Optimal Health and Performance from Within
BSc (Hons) Nutritional Therapy, BA(Hons), Dip BCNH, mBANT, mCNHC, CISNcert.
I am a Registered Health and Performance Nutritionist specialising in personalised sports nutrition to maximise performance for recreational and competitive athletes.
As a clinically trained Nutritional Therapist, I work with my clients to develop bespoke nutritional and lifestyle plans which, can not only help them achieve their training goals, but help them to address any underlying chronic health conditions that may be compromising their general health and/or athletic ability.

'Let Food be thy Medicine and Medicine be thy food'
Many people don’t make the connection between the food they eat and the quality of their health.
The truth is, that the food we eat everyday, combined with our lifestyle habits (sleep quality, stress levels etc) all have direct effects on our energy levels, mood, how we look and feel, the ability of our body to guard against and fight disease and ultimately on our ability to train effectively and achieve our sporting goals.
I am passionate about the power that dietary and lifestyle changes can have on every aspect of our health and athletic performance.
As each one of us is biochemically unique, a ‘one size fits all’ nutritional approach cannot work for everyone. Therefore, a personalised sports nutrition programme could potentially be the missing link to help you get the most out of your training, maximise your recovery or deliver you peak performance at your next sporting event or competition.
I can work with you to develop a personalised nutrition plan that addresses your personal needs, considering your current health status, the demands of your training schedule and lifestyle and your dietary preferences or requirements i.e. food allergies, sensitivities or intolerances, veganism, vegetarian, etc.
In 2018, I graduated from the University of Greenwich with a first-class honours degree – BSc(hons) Nutritional Therapy. I was also awarded a ‘level 6’ diploma (with distinction), in ‘Nutrition and Health’ with clinical practice, from the British College of Nutritional Health (BCNH). I have also undertaken further postgraduate training in ‘Personalised Sports Nutrition’ with the Centre of Nutritional Education & Lifestyle Management (CNELM) and in early 2021 I became a certified by the Centre of Integrative Sports Nutriton (CISN).
I am fully registered by the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) - a professional body for Registered Nutrition Practitioners as well as the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC); the voluntary UK register of complementary therapists; abiding by their strict Code of Professional Ethics and undertaking regular continued professional development (CPD) training to enrich and expand my current knowledge and skills.
In addition to my clinical work, I have worked with BCNH as an academic and clinical tutor.
