I love nutrition and food and am passionate about the power of nutritional therapy in helping with both prevention of illness and supporting the body through times of sickness and ill health.
I studied with the Institute of Health Sciences, where I graduated with a Distinction in 2012. I’m a member of NTOI, the professional organisation representing nutritional therapists in Ireland. Members of NTOI adhere to a strict code of ethics ensuring confidentiality at all times. By being a member of NTOI, there is a requirement for continuous professional development so I continually study within the nutrition field to ensure that I’m up to date with emerging scientific evidence in this area.
I’ve always had an interest in nutrition but didn’t always know how to nourish myself properly. Throughout my 20’s I would have suffered quite a bit with fatigue and digestive complaints with my weight fluctuating all over the place.
Now, I’ve hit 40, have 3 lovely sons and can honestly say I feel better than ever. My diet isn’t 100% perfect all of the time (I live in the real world), however, I thoroughly enjoy feeding myself and my family with nourishing wholefoods.
I don’t believe in obsessive calorie counting and am not an advocator of overly strict, unsustainable diets. Changing how you eat should be manageable and enjoyable, not stressful and dull.
I am passionate about getting the best results for each and every client. I strive to educate and empower my clients to take control of their own health and enjoy helping them reach their health goals whether that be a life free from ill health, to resolve ongoing digestive issues, to wake each morning feeling healthy and energised or to make PMT, pains and aches, cravings or mood swings a thing of the past.
I am the nutrition expert for http://www.eumom.ie.
I also give seminars and workshops on nutrition and health to corporate clients as well as community groups and schools. I have written for various local publications and online magazines as well as speaking on local radio on nutrition related health issues.
