Nutritional Therapy is now widely recognised as a tool in cancer prevention, as well as prior, during, and following cancer treatment.
A cancer diagnosis can be both life-changing and scary. It often leaves patients feeling like they have lost control over their lives and their bodies.
My goal is to help you regain some of that control by offering nutrition and lifestyle advice personalised to your specific circumstances. Every individual and every diagnosis are different and therefore the approach must be tailored to the individual. There is no one size fits all and that's where professional advice and support is invaluable.
Whilst there are never any guarantees, there is ample scientific evidence showing that taking charge of our diet and lifestyle can help improve outcomes.
I am a great believer in doing all that we can between ALL oncology professionals, through a truly integrated approach to achieve the best outcome for each patient.
I am a qualified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, registered with the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the PSA accredited register. I graduated in 2015 with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM). I have been practicing since graduating in 2015, seeing on average 20 clients per week, and supporting a wide range of health conditions.
My long-term goal was always to specialise in cancer nutrition, but I felt I needed to gain significant experience in the field first. My inspiration came partly from losing my mum to stomach cancer when I was one (she was 29!), and more recently a close friend to bowel cancer. My approach is based on the latest evidence in the field of Nutritional Therapy and Integrative Oncology.
I have completed the NTEC certified Systems Approach to Cancer course created by Dr Nina Fuller-Shavel, which sets a new standard in cancer nutrition education in the UK. It is an evidence-based expertly led training programme that draws on Dr Fuller-Shavel's extensive medical, scientific, and integrative care knowledge, as well as systems biology and continually evolving understanding of cancer pathophysiology.
Please note that nutritional therapy is not designed to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease, including cancer. Nutritional therapy is about supporting the body's resilience and whole person wellbeing, and we always aim to work collaboratively with oncology services.
I offer a range of cancer support programmes.
