Ever since I can remember I've been fascinated with how the body works and all things health-related. Running alongside this interest has been my deep need to know what makes us 'work' at a level beyond the physical body. What stimulates our desires, what motivates us to grow and develop emotionally, and what touches our soul? I've sought answers to these big questions through my own self-discovery and through my work.
My interest in health has settled around the subject of nutrition and I've spent my career advising people with cancer and other serious diseases how to follow a diet and lifestyle that supports physical health and emotional wellbeing. What touches me about supporting those with serious disease is the strength often shown and how, when there is no place to run, many people find the courage to face up to those things that aren't working in their life. The transformations I have witnessed in many of my clients, not only with their health but also their level of fulfilment has been outstanding at times and incredibly inspiring. I hope to take what I've learnt from these people and help others see how positive lifestyle changes can be transforming on a deep level and lead to a life of greater health and happiness.

Welcome to my blog!
This is a place where you'll find thoughts and insights, advice and guidance on health and wellbeing. 'Nourishment' is the key word here and while nourishment from food will be a main feature, the material covered will extend to include ideas on how to nourish the physical body using lifestyle techniques and how to feel nourished on an emotional and a spiritual level too.

That said, guidance and support can be invaluable and this blog will provide a space where you can pick up information and practical tips to take away and try out for yourself.

I’m very excited to tell you about a programme I’ve been developing for some time and finally feel ready to launch to the world! It’s called the Deep Nourishment Programme and it taps into all that I’ve learnt about food and healing over the course of my career. It also draws from the deepest and most profound lessons I’ve learnt on my own personal journey with health. This programme offers a new and radically different way of using nutrition for healing, one that ...
I want to introduce you to Justina, a very special lady who, like me, believes that WHAT we eat is less important than how we FEEL about what we eat, and also how we feel about ourselves. Justina has formed these beliefs through very different experiences to mine; through struggles with an eating disorder. In this post she talks a little about her story and the first steps she used to heal her relationship with food.
It's common to hear a nutritional therapist claim in frustration that doctors know very little about nutrition and show no willingness to learn about the subject or engage with the nutritional therapy community. It's even more common for the nutritionally-enlightened patient to complain that their doctor is uninterested and even dismissive of their efforts to support their health by changing their diet.
This lack of knowledge and interest is understandable when you consider that ...
If you ever contemplate your state of health, perhaps even worry about it from time to time, chances are inflammation is not something you give much thought to. It’s much more likely you think about the life-threatening conditions that afflict the lives of many, things such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes. However, what you may not have realised is that at the root of each of these diseases lies the same process… yes you guessed it, inflammation! And it’s not just these ...
Since a teenager I’ve been interested in beauty as well as health and have enjoyed experimenting with make-up and cosmetics. I’ve always particularly loved natural beauty products and over the years have made many lotions and potions myself – it’s so easy to create luxurious products at a fraction of the cost of those you buy and such fun!
