I have been studying health and nutrition for over 10 years, and have helped a variety of clients improve their health. My scientific research has been published in top academic journals, and has been covered by many well-known publications including: WebMD, The Daily Mail, and The New York Times. I have also appeared on several podcasts to discuss my work.

I help people achieve vibrant health and well-being, using diet, supplements, and lifestyle strategies (exercise, sleep, and reducing stress). Using one-to-one consultations, I assess clients’ individual needs, and provide a bespoke nutrition and health plan.

My Approach

Science Based

I am an academic researcher & author, and am currently pursuing a Ph.D. by publication. Using the latest scientific insights, I continually develop and refine my practice. I distill complex scientific ideas into simple & practical insights to improve your health.

Cutting edge science

Evidence based nutrition & lifestyle advice.

Nutritional Therapy

Often people need more than just general advice to eat more vegetables and exercise. I use advanced dietary strategies to maximize your health. These are tailored to your individual needs and preferences.

Individualized diets

Diets are expertly customised to your unique needs.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine addresses the root cause of disease. Typically, diseases have many causes, so it is unlikely that one drug will cure it. We need to target multiple body systems at once, which is best done through diet, supplements & lifestyle.

Systems biology approach

Natural, effective & low risk health interventions.

Holistic Approach

Sleep, stress and exercise have profound effects on our health. As a qualified personal trainer, I use my expertise to advise you on appropriate exercise. I also have an extensive of knowledge of sleep science and how to improve sleep.

Expert in lifestyle & health

Lifestyle strategies used to improve sleep, stress & exercise.
