Nutrition and Yoga are my passion. I use them in a targeted way to promote health and vitality both for myself and my clients.
I specialise in looking after women 40+ who are going through mid-life changes. 40+ is a critical age for women as many of us may be experiencing fatigue, loss of energy, low mood, weight gain and less vitality than we would like to have.
I do that by offering Programmes (usually 3 months) so that my clients feel accompanied, supported and empowered through mid-life changes.
I also offer ad-hoc consultations, or programmes that involve both Nutritional Therapy and Yoga, linking physical strength and alignment together with optimum nutritional support.
My consultations, advice and holistic protocols are designed around the individual’s needs. Each body is a unique system depending on each individual’s eating habits, lifestyle, level of exercise and chemical/mental make up.
I offer Nutritional Therapy services from central premises in Edinburgh and also in Dunfermline, where I operate from a confidential therapeutic room.
Currently I also teach yoga at The Health Life Centre in Edinburgh.
Training, Qualifications & Experience
I am a qualified Nutritional Therapist, and a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher.
I have many years experience with nutrition having worked in the past with organic farms as a volunteer both in committees and with organic produce, with food supplement companies and with colleges offering Nutritional Therapy diplomas. I also have many years clinical experience with the general public.
I have been a certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher for many years and have taught several classes at different levels, again mainly to women 40+. I have had the opportunity to train and study in India at renowned Iyengar Yoga Centres with inspirational teachers.
I am usually described by my friends and clients as a warm, caring and straightforward person. I connect easily with people.
Health means resilience and homeostasis, i.e. the harmony and balance of bodily (chemical and metabolic) functions. Appropriate food intake is a fundamental first step to maintain functional balance of our bodily system through correct nutrient intake, digestion, absorption and detoxification.
As a Nutritional Therapist I use my expertise and knowledge of food and food supplements based on the latest scientific research to create dietary protocols to address real-life needs and support optimum wellbeing. I often recommend programmes to my clients where nutritional therapy advice is accompanied by yoga practice. This is to promote Integrated Health, which is a central concept that drives my philosophy as a health and clinic practitioner.
I strongly advocate for consumption of fresh produce and filtered water as central to our diet in order to maximise nutrient intake for support of the digestive system and detoxification. My consultations are about re-education to food intake and to getting to know our body in a new and fresh way, helping clients who would like to re-discover themselves again as beautiful and energetic beings.
