A hype-free personalised approach to health and lifestyle
In a world dominated by “quick fixes”, “miracle pills” and the latest “diet” separating facts from fiction is understandably confusing.
What if you could find a way to help your body achieve optimum wellness. What if you could finally feel 100% again, no more bloating, no more tiredness, no more constipation, no more pain. What if the way to do this was tailored specifically to you through scientifically researched, specific, guided, diet and lifestyle changes, would you be willing to try?
What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. As a Registered Nutritional Therapist I make use of a wide range of tools and if necessary functional tests to assess and identify key potential imbalances and understand how these may contribute to your symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows me to work with you to address nutritional balance and help support your body towards optimising and 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.
There is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
As an individual you are completely unique which is why my approach to your unique health concerns will always be tailored to you. We will work together to create a practical, achievable and personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme.
As a Nutritional Therapist I will never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice. If it’s deemed necessary you may be referred to your GP. When it comes to your health it’s important that all your health care providers work together and so GP’s, Specialists and Nutritional Therapists will often work together with you to achieve the best possible health outcome.
How can Nutritional Therapy help YOU?
Food, considered by some to be the sustenance of life, should be more than something we devour to keep our energy levels up or consume purely for pleasure. Food gives our bodies the ability to thrive in the way that it was designed. Our body makes use of every ingested morsel interacting on a biochemical level allowing our body systems to interact and work in synergy. However, the wrong food can wreak havoc with your biochemistry and result in a plethora of conditions.

I am very happy I found Alison to be my nutritionist. So many of my questions regarding correct diet got answered!
We are dealing with 2 problems which in a way are opposite to each other. Alison did create me a great eating plan and also gave so many useful advices. Only after a month I could see the difference, my friends are noticing that I look better. Also, she is very understanding. Knowing that I am going on a holiday she offered me great swaps for my favourite alcohol drinks to make sure I enjoy my time!
I feel great and I would definitely recommend Alison's services. The last thing she would do is to make you not enjoy your journey to the changes. She will always find a great compromise if needed.
It's the best investment in myself I've ever done. More...
I have had the chance to work with Alison on my goal of loosing weight. It has been 7 years since I quit smoking, in which I ended up gaining almost 2 stone and I have never managed to loose any weight since quitting smoking. Alison managed to get me to loose almost a stone within four months. After a very detailed questionnaire that I had to fill in for her we had a consultation session where she explained what she believed I should do in order to achieve my goal. It didn’t feel at all like I sacrificed anything. She managed to educate me and made me understand what I should do or should avoid. It took me sometime to adjust my preferences to more healthy options, which I have done with Alison’s help.
I highly recommend Alison as she shows expertise in the nutritional industry. I am confident she has the skill set necessary to handle any challenge. She is professional and at the same time her approach is very friendly which gives you the confidence and comfort you need to change your lifestyle and manage your weight. I now feel healthier and I will dare to say that I understand my body more. Thank you Alison! More...
5 star service. Alison was so friendly and made me feel at ease straight away.....which is difficult as I have a social phobia which has kept me in the house for ten years. She is very knowledgeable and intelligent and talked me through the whole process. It didn’t take long to decide she was the one for me! I would highly recommend her, I have a long road ahead to losing weight and healing my body and with Alison I feel like it is actually possible. I cannot thank her enough for the kindness and patience she has shown me. More...
After a mysterious pot bellied bloating kept coming and going, Ali put me on a strict detox for 3 days and then a month of clean eating. Whilst not entirely pleasant, I am still standing and haven’t had an instance of bloating back since. I know what to eat and what to skip, which is a god-send! Ali is a kind and detailed focused person who went well beyond what I expected and ploughed through research to rule out this and that, which made me feel genuinely cared for, and finally, listened to. My partner was so impressed she got help with a weight loss plan, and dropped 6 kilos as a result! More...
I was very impressed with Alison's knowledge of her subject, but also the time and trouble she took to research and understand the conditions which trouble me. She has provided sensible, straightforward dietary guidelines for me to follow which started to show early results and have produced continued improvement. Her general advice on supplements (type, brand and dosage) and a specific natural treatment for my fingernail problem have been most efficacious. More...
I was sceptical at first, however aided by my wife and the excruciating pain my Rheumatoid Arthritis was causing in my joints I decided to give Nutritional Therapy a chance. Alison’s knowledge of the area instantly set me at ease, she helped me understand all the blood tests my GP had run, providing me with a detailed report, helping me to clearly understand what was happening within. Through our sessions and testing Alison figured out the trigger of my RA which she then helped me to rectify. My GP has approved my withdrawal from pharmaceutical drugs, I am pain and symptom free, my ‘beer belly’ has disappeared (something my wife is very grateful for!) and I now believe in the power of Nutritional Therapy.

I had gotten to the point where food terrified me! Everything I ate triggered an often painful reaction of some type. At my wit’s end and loosing faith in traditional medicine I turned to Nutritional Therapy. Alison’s “Hold my Hand” package was just what I needed. She worked very closely with me to figure out what was going on and help me resolve it. We ran private tests to confirm what Alison thought to be the problem and adjusted my diet accordingly. I am no longer terrified of eating and haven’t felt this good in years!' More...
