the basis of nutritional therapy

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. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a 'one size fits all' approach. They never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with 'red flag' signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client's care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.


What to expect from a nutritional therapy consultation?

Prior to the first consultation Anne will send you a detailed questionnaire relating to your health, diet and lifestyle for you to complete in your own time and return before the consultation.

During the initial consultation your health concerns, medical and family history, lifestyle as well as dietary likes and dislikes will be discussed. From this Anne will explain what the links are between the way you feel and possible nutritional imbalances.

Follow-up consultations are to monitor your progress as well as adjust some recommendations when necessary. Anne tends to see weight loss clients every three weeks and disordered eating clients every week.

With nutritional therapy, not all cases require the same number of consultations, some will need as little as two follow-ups while others require a more staged approach.

All consultations are 1h long and are charged £60.

Anne grew up in France where she embarked on a life-long love of cooking and food. However, she struggled with her weight as a teenager and fell prey to an eating disorder. Recovering some time later sparked up her interest in food and how it can affect our body and soul. She eventually decided to quit her job in publishing and re-train for four years at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London to become a nutritional therapist.

She has also been training at the National Centre for Eating Disorders, to obtain her a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders and Obesity diploma, which is approved by the British Psychological Society.

She is a firm believer that diet and lifestyle are key to optimum health but also that you don’t have to live off sawdust to be healthy. She will therefore do her upmost to combine her knowledge of nutrition with her love of cooking to help you achieve your goals without you staring down an empty plate.

Her main areas of interest are weight management, type 2 diabetes and disordered eating.
