Helen qualified in 2017 with a first class BSc (Hons) degree in Nutrition from Oxford Brookes University and is currently studying for an MSc in Nutritional Therapy at the University of Worcester.
There are not many diets that Helen hasn’t tried and her nutrition degree gave her a valuable insight into the science behind nutrition and helped her to understand why so many diets fail long term. Her research and studies have helped her to understand the links between the various life stages and today’s modern diseases such as diabetes, obesity, allergies, IBS and more.
At a time when I was severely malnourished due to achalasia (extreme difficulty in swallowing), Helen’s friendly, thoughtful and detailed advice was crucial in stabilising my overall condition over the months until I received medical treatment. Steve, Bedfordshire
Registered as a student member of BANT, Helen works with individuals on a 1-1 basis, either in conjunction with Health Kinesiology, or as a stand-alone therapy, to identify problems, goals and real life, doable strategies to tackle diet related health issues.
You were a lifesaver! Nobody else gave us any help with nutrition while Steve was ill. Liz, Bedfordshire
During her time at Oxford Brookes University, Helen spent 18 months volunteering at Crisis, Skylight, Oxford, a homeless charity for single adults based in Oxford, in their weekly cookery classes. It opened her eyes to the issue of ‘Food Poverty’ and the many problems that people face due to lack of finance, skills, education and opportunity. Today Helen continues to be interested in these issues and is mindful that not everyone has access to the more expensive celebrity type diets that seem so popular today.
Helen is keen to work with clients who need some help adjusting their diet and nutrition to address specific health goals. Anyone can join a weight loss class or buy the latest recipe book. Not everyone can grasp what they need to change to achieve their specific goals based on their physiology, psychology, finances and life situation. We are all unique and one size does not fit all when it comes to eating what is right for you. Let Helen help you find what works best for you.
