I come from a family of cooks, and my greatest inspiration was my grandmother, Marmie, who apart from being the most amazing cook was a beautiful and capable woman who ran the family catering business during the second world war. I became the fourth generation of the family in the business, but several years in I started to become unwell with many non-specific symptoms. I decided to do a juice fast with an old and close friend, Midi Fairgrieve, who runs the renowned Detox-International in Spain. The week turned my life and health around, and I was intrigued by the power of juice fasting and how diet could influence your health in such a profound way with the support of various other therapies. Midi inspired me to find out more, and so I embarked on a three year nutrition course with the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in Bristol.
I now run a private practice, workshops, detox programs and retreats in Cornwall and am committed to keeping abreast of the latest science, research and education.
As well as addressing my own health issues, I am now empowered to help other people, and the power of the correct nutrition and lifestyle modifications continues to astound and motivate me.
I am a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT), The Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (ANP), the Complementary and Natural Health Council (CNHC) and am fully insured with Balens Insurance.
