Please note: I am a NATUROPATHIIC NUTRITIONAL THEAPIST and a GAPS PRACTITIONER. I am NOT a massage therapist.
Find the cause - heal the symptom! Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist / Certified GAPS Practitioner / Reiki Level 2 . Seeking the cause of your symptoms is my priority and using naturopathy, nature and natural means to restore balance to your body. A rebalanced body is a healthy body. Complex case welcome. Sutton Coldfield.
Specific interest is with the gut as this is where all dis-ease starts and nearly everyone has gut issues today! Over 60% of the immune system is located in the gut, and the gut is also known as the second brain. No wonder gut issues play havoc with your health.
I deal with all issues of health including preventive and support of diagnosed conditions. Each person is individual and may require several combined approaches to restore balance. I have a wide experience and knowledge of many naturopathic therapies such as detoxification, cleansing therapies, juicing therapy, stress management techniques which are included in my treatment plans.
I spend a lot of time listening to your story, finding out exactly what is going on in your body. I occasionally use laboratory testing but as this can be expensive this is not my first choice unless specifically requested. There are lots of in house tests and test you can carry out at home that provide useful information.
So whether your concern is chronic long term or a recently new development, gut related, neurological, intolerances, stress, weight management or anything else give me a call.

90 minute Initial Nutritional Consultation £65
includes: analysis of 7 day diet diary, nutritional questionnaire, health questionnaire, and any blood tests from a nutritional (not diagnostic) viewpoint. An in depth Treatment Plan, follow up email or phone support. Every treatment plan acknowledges that each client is individual, there is no one size fits all. Recommendations made are personal to your issues, situation and goals.
60 minute Follow Up Consultation £45
recommended 6-8 weeks after first consultation to evaluate progress; tweak and adjust programme to individual requirements. Some clients can manage vast changes others may need baby steps depending on severity of imbalances. Nutritional Therapy can be a couple of specific steps for some and for others the first step of awakening to a whole new world of health education.
90 minute GAPS Consultation £75
I am also a fully certified GAPS Consultant, personally trained by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride. The GAPS Diet was initially devised to support the gut and brain issues in autism. As more than 60% of the immune system is located in the gut, the GAPS protocol, which focuses on healing and sealing the gut, has beneficial advantages for many conditions. As Hippocrates said all disease begins in the gut!!
As gut health starts at birth (and before conception!), many of us today are born with disadvantages. We are now on the precipice – we can learn to not just love our guts – but learn about them and this way we can improve the health and the future of the human species – our children, and our children’s children.
GAPS consultations may require more time for discussion. I will advise you, from the information disclosed before the consultation, if I feel that you fit the GAPS (Gut & Psychology Syndrome) and allow time after the initial 90 minutes should you wish to extend the consultation. If you do not it is not a problem because I can do the administration from your consultation anyway, so you are under no pressure. Additional time charges at £25.00 per 30 minutes. This covers a very in depth Treatment Plan which includes food lists, food sources, meal plans for each stage, detoxification therapies and much more. Everything you need to complete both the GAPS Introductory Diet and/or Full GAPS Diet.
Disease does not just happen, it takes years to manifest. I believe that disease starts when the body becomes imbalanced and yes, we can be born unbalanced. Genetics do play a part but it is our environment, both internal and external, that has the ability to switch our genes on or off.
Therefore, what we encounter in our day to day life has a dramatic effect on our health. Unfortunately, we cannot escape some of the “chemical soup” we have created, but we all have the ability and opportunity to find and provide ourselves with the best ammunition we can so we can function happily and healthily within this environment.
It is my aim to provide you with this ammunition; all you have to do is use it.....
If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
