I had been perplexed and worried about a tingly sensation on my forehead and scalp along with a host of other symptoms including brain fog, sore muscles and joints and other anomalies that were unexplained by 3 blood tests and and MRI. Kate was able to quickly ascertain that the symptoms were due to mould illness from prolonged exposure and formulate an action plan. Once I removed myself form the mouldy environment and completed the 30 day cleanse (honestly, I have never stopped doing the cleanse!!), my health and my spirits have improved dramatically. Kate was ever present during the emotional move from my home of 15 years and subsequent diet overhaul which was completely out of my comfort zone. The recovery from mould illness is not an overnight matter so I am very grateful for Kate and her expertise around functional nutrition guiding the way More...

Dr Barry is a fantastic communicator.
I was taught important lifestyle changes that needed to be made and could feel the difference within 2 weeks.
Highly recommend whether it's for a health condition or just want to go to that next level of healthy living.
Great experience.

I decided to come to Dr Kate as I was having issues with food intolerances and I had also been diagnosed with Parkinsons. I chose the VIP 6 month plan . Through Dr Kate I learnt how to be more aware of how my body was reacting to food intake. Also how to reduce inflammation and the gut is the root of most chronic health issues. Through a structured approach I was finally able to lose weight which I have struggled with for years, my food intolerances are more under control now, my Parkinsons symptoms have plateau to the extent where I now feel am able to be a productive member of the community.
My experience with Dr Kate have been fantastic, she was always willing to help me overcome any issues that presented, as well as, offer support at any time, thus making this journey to better health more achievable. Thank you Dr Kate

Kate has really helped me understand more about my diagnosis and subsequent dietary changes. She has guided me through a very complex system of supplements and other supports to ensure that my wish to remain unmedicated has been a reality. I’m feeling good, and am now empowered with more information to support my continued healing. Thank you Kate. I’m very grateful 🙏 More...

I've tried different diets for my Hashimotos many times and always found them too restrictive and difficult to continue with. I loved Kate's 30 day gut cleanse and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to follow, especially because the first week was time spent preparing. I especially found the recipes provided helpful. After the 30 days, I lost a little weight, felt much lighter and full of energy and my brain fog cleared. I definitely noticed a big drop in inflammation and my thyroid replacement hormone medication dose was reduced. This meant that the gut cleanse improved my thyroid hormone production. I was also able to reintroduce eggs to my diet which is wonderful. Thanks Kate! Looking forward to the next one. More...

I did the 4-week Inflammation Cleanse Challenge with Kate. I was ready to bring change, as I was bloated, always had reflux, have diabetes and high blood pressure. I had been looking for a way to kick start change, without really knowing how to do it safely. Kate provided a comprehensive guide of food and drink we could and could not have, along with some recipe guides. I went in feeling prepared and organised. It was very interesting becoming more aware of what my body tolerates. After the challenge I went for my regular blood tests and everything had improved! I highly recommend Kate as a nutritionist if you want to see change! More...

I did a 4-week cleanse with Dr Kate and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it. The program was easy to follow and the results were fantastic. My skin was glowing (bonus!) but more importantly my inflammation (due to an auto-immune condition) was noticeably reduced. The process helped me identify food triggers I had never known were contributing to my inflammation. Dr Kate was readily available to answer my questions, and was really wonderful to deal with.

I've struggled with fatigue my whole life, but I've always just pushed through and been able to function. In mid-2019 I experienced neurological issues and severe fatigue that came on very suddenly and were debilitating. The neuro symptoms even caused me to have a car accident! Kate was a friend of a friend so I'd heard about her services and booked in for a free chat immediately. After listening to my history and symptoms, Kate suggested my issues may be mould-related and referred me on to a Functional Medicine doctor.

While awaiting my doctor's appointment and the start of treatment, Kate and I worked on my diet and lifestyle habits and focused on reducing inflammation so as not to exacerbate the inflammatory state being caused by the mould. To be honest, I didn't spend much time cooking prior to that so the diet was quite hard for me to stick to, but it definitely made me feel lighter and less bloated.

One of the most important things I've learned from Kate is to listen to my body, because it's constantly giving me clues about what is good and bad about the environment I'm putting it in. This made a big difference with respect to mould avoidance, and the neuro symptoms reduced enough that I could go back to work after a couple of months.

Although I have now finished the mould detox with the Functional Medicine doc, I continue to work with Kate on my diet, gut health and detox abilities in an attempt to minimize the thyroid symptoms I continue to suffer from. I can't recommend Kate highly enough!

In 2019 I was diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis (inflammation of the colon). I had the full gamut of digestive symptoms, and it was difficult to manage and very unpleasant. I was prescribed one medication which had no effect and then another which made the symptoms worse.

Not knowing where else to turn, I spoke to Kate a few months later and she suggested that I eliminate inflammatory foods since my condition was inflammation-based. After a week or two I started to feel great, and eventually was able to reintroduce some of the old foods once my gut had healed a bit.

Kate advised me that fermented foods may also be helpful, and she also taught me various strategies to slow down my eating - it made such a difference to my digestion!

I also had trouble sleeping at night, so Kate suggested I try meditation (mindfulness), especially since there is often a link with stress and digestive symptoms. I did this for many months and if I was experiencing this helped me to relax and sleep better. We’re now introducing probiotics and I have already felt the benefits

After being diagnosed with ME/CFS, I was told that it was incurable and that I would just have to manage the symptoms. Something told me this wasn’t the case, that there must be something I could do to at least reduce the symptoms and live a normal life.

That’s when I found Kate and Functional Nutrition, and thank God I did! Kate has taught me the importance of good nutrition, but more importantly that what is good nutrition for one person may not be good nutrition for another person – we are all unique! The most important thing I’ve learned is to tune into my body and really listen to what it’s telling me. By doing these things, I have gone from bedbound to 60-70% function in the 15 months I’ve been working with Kate.

Q&As

Extremely! I'd say it is the most important thing, closely followed by movement, sleep and stress management. However a “healthy” diet is different for everybody - its important to figure out what your body needs and what doesnt work.

Changing the trajectory of people’s lives. I work with chronically ill individuals, and i love helping them to address the terrain in which dysfunction developed so they can start to feel better and get back to living life.

I became ill and had to do my own detective work to find root cause resolution. I now help to guide others down the same path but hopefully a little more smoothly than my own experience!

I bring a unique mix of skills to the table, with a Bachelors and PhD in Biology plus Functional Nutrition and Health Coach qualifications. I've also walked the walk with chronic illness and have learned a lot through the process.

Yes, I prefer to work remotely. I am happy to accommodate most formats for communication, including Zoom, Skype and phone.

I used to offer in person initial consults, but I have now moved to a fully online practice.
