Eat Well and Feel Well

Gluten Free, Vegetarian or Vegan?

Getting your nutrition right when you are a coeliac or living gluten free can be tricky. I  have worked with coeliac patients within the NHS and can support you to ensure that you are getting everything that your body needs to be healthy. A vegetarian or vegan diet can be a really great diet when you know what to eat to stay healthy. I can help you make some simple tweaks and changes to your daily diet so that you can feel your very best.

My background in nutrition

When I was lecturing in health and human biology at a local college I got very interested in how what we eat affects our physical and mental health. I undertook my own personal journey around health and my relationship with food and I also embarked on a master’s in nutrition and Health. With that degree I went on to work within the NHS and more recently, while also working as a therapist, I was a Health and Wellbeing Coach on the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme.

Now clients approach me for support around weight management, disordered eating, health challenges and issues such as digestive health and fatigue.

Understanding your eating programme

The programme consists of a five-week course, and you can find more detailed descriptions of the programme on the Understanding your Eating website: http://www.understandingyoureating.co.uk/.

The focus of the programme is to develop a greater insight into what situations, feelings and thoughts might be triggering your eating issues. Find out more by going to my dedicated page.
