FAQ

Why use a nutrition coach?

Most people only get referred to a dietitian when they already have a serious health issue. This means so many peoples health could benefit from improved nutrition and lifestyle. As a nutrition advisor I am more accessible than a dietitian with the knowledge and skills to help you improve your diet encouraging better food choices and lifestyle changes to achieve your goals whether this is to lose weight or just to maintain a better level of overall heath.

What qualifications do you have? 

I have an advanced diploma in nutrition and weight management that is certified by the Association for Nutrition, the professional association that defines the standards for the training, practice and continuing professional development of nutrition professionals. It is also recognised by CIMSPA and the Register of Exercise Professionals.

I also have my Masters of science by dissertation in Biochemistry (in cancer research specifically) and a BSc Biochemistry undergraduate degree. 

Who can I help? 

If you are an adult (18+) who needs help to improve your diet, or are looking to lose weight in a sustainable way, I can help you achieve these things. Healthfully and without fad diets or calorie tracking. Using safe & effective nutritional advice. I can also help you if you’re an athlete needing help with nutrition to achieve optimal performance and recovery with individual advice. If you’re in the Essex/Suffolk area I can meet for in person sessions* or I can arrange a virtual consult from wherever you are in the world. 

*right now all of my sessions are remote as this is the most COVID safe way to work.

Will you make me eat salads all day?

People often worry that seeing a nutrition coach will mean being told to eat leaves and “rabbit food” all day every day. Although salads can be super yum, filling and nourishing, they wont need to make up your entire diet. I work with you to help you achieve your goals in a way that’s sustainable and enjoyable for you. If you don’t like a particular food, I wont be asking you to eat that.

Are you Plant-based? 

As you can probably tell from my Instagram, I have been vegan since 2016. There are so many reasons for this (which you can find if you check out my Instagram). However I hope that anyone can enjoy the recipes I create in this space. I know all the non-vegans around me still really love the food I cook, even though its completely made from plants.

The planet & the animals will always benefit from you eating more plant based foods so give the recipes a try I promise you’ll be surprised!

Do you work with non-vegans/will you make me vegan? 

I absolutely would love to work with you even if you’re not at all veggie or plant based. I have worked with non-vegans in the past and would love to help you achieve your goals with total understanding (and no judgement).

I can do non-vegan personalised plans for you too!

Obviously I do have specialised knowledge about a vegan diet so if you are vegan or wanting to eat more plant based and need some help I would absolutely love to.
