Why did you decide to become a health practitioner?
I have been interested in health and nutrition all my life and, with my background in teaching, I have a great passion for education.
My interest in nutritional medicine developed whilst living in Sydney Australia, where I developed an illness after the death of my father. My health issues were successfully resolved by naturopathic medicine, which inspired me to become a practitioner myself.
Upon my return to Europe in 2007 I decided to move to the UK to study at the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in London. I graduated in Naturopathic Nutrition, followed by Naturopathy and Clinical Supervision Assistant training.
Who do you work with?
Mums who want the best health for the whole family. They may be confused by all the conflicting information - what is and what is not healthy. They may be tired, not sleeping well, or perhaps suffering from hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, skin conditions or autoimmune conditions such Hashimoto’s. They may be concerned about ageing and/or weight gain.
Dads/Partners who may be stressed, dependent on coffee and sugar to keep them going, with signs of ill-health creeping in such as pain, high blood pressure and weight gain.
Children who might have digestive issues such constipation or tummy aches, or who are constantly down with colds or ear infections, experiencing eczema or acne, suffering from ADHD or autism, or an autoimmune condition such as Coeliac disease.
What exactly do you practice?
I am practitioner of integrative functional naturopathic medicine
Integrative medicine emphasises the therapeutic relationship and all appropriate therapies, both alternative medicine and evidence-based medicine. An Integrative medicine practitioner treats the "whole person", focusing on wellness and health, rather than on treating disease.
Functional medicine is an individually-orientated, integrative and science-based medical approach. It addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns.
Naturopathy is a healing system which places emphasis on health and how to promote it, rather than on disease and how to suppress it. The fundamental principle of Naturopathy is the healing power of nature. Prevention is always preferable to cure. The aim of naturopathy is to increase the vitality of patients so that they can dispel disease by means of their own self-healing mechanism. Disease is seen as the body's response to challenges in the internal or external environment.
Health coaching is a process that facilitates positive, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to listen to their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action. Like Life Coaching, Health Coaching utilises goal setting, identification of obstacles and the use of personal support systems. The relationship between the Health Coach and the client is a structured partnership, accountable in both directions and focused on the overall health outcome goals.
