WHAT IS A NUTRITIONAL PRACTITIONER?
The terms nutritional practitioner or nutritional therapist are used interchangeably, but they mean the same thing. Essentially, I am qualified to give nutritional advice to clients to help alleviate symptoms they may be experiencing and help prevent disease by promoting good health through diet.
Nutritional therapy is a well-recognised complementary medicine and focuses on addressing biochemical imbalances in the body by changing when, what and how we eat. The training, which is based on peer-reviewed studies and rigorous scientific research, is extensive and ongoing.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Here at Clear Nutrition I am committed to delivering a personal one-to-one service based on credible, evidence-based research.
With nutrition there is no one size fits all approach. You are an individual with your own unique biological make up and specific nutritional needs that need to be addressed.
That’s why I take a full medical history and we look at lifestyle and activity levels, your relationship with food, budget, time constraints, preferred cooking methods, religious and ethical considerations as well as family history and the impact of any medication you might be taking.
A consultation is basically a fact-finding mission: we don’t just look at any symptoms you may have – we view the body and its functions as a whole.
I then offer simple, easy to understand advice – zero jargon, no weird ingredients and no faddy supplements. Just good, natural, wholesome food.
Consultations take place in Orpington, Kent (within walking distance of the High Street), but I’m also happy to travel within the Bromley area. I also practice in the City of London. You can opt to have an initial consultation in person, with a follow up online or via email, if that suits.
