Welcome

Having fully qualified as a registered Nutritional Therapist in 2011, I have enjoyed building up experience in clinic and am keen to share my training with all who wish to listen and apply it to their lives. Over 19 years' work experience in the field of health, nutrition, psychology and wellness has taught me that there is always more to learn!

My journey into nutrition began over 20 years ago, whilst studying psychology at Swansea University.

I was reading about the links between what we eat and how this can affect our mood and wellbeing, as well as our physical health. My dissertation was written about probiotics from a psychological point of view, little did I realise at the time how my career would later develop into nutritional science, gut microbiome and its application in individual healthcare ..

Qualifications:

* BSc Nutritional Science, Thames Valley University 2008 - transferred over to:

* Postgraduate Diploma; University of Worcester MSc (Distinction) in Nutritional Therapy, 2011.

* BA Psychology (hons) 2:1 University of Swansea, 2001

Experience:

* Independent Health Food Stores - 19 years - on hand for advice/referrals regarding diet/foods/safe supplementation with independent practitioner brands; and to muck in with general running of the store!

* Advising all who visit with compassion, and care to suit individual needs, tastes and budgets; those from all walks of life, including local professional rugby players and their families.

* Clinic - 5 years - Registered CNHC/mBANT

* BioCare Clinical Nutrition Team 2018/19 - Telephone support for practitioners and consumers.

I aim to create action plans with each individual that are as realistic, attainable, enjoyable and effective as possible. Typically this may be in relation to digestion, energy levels, immune function, hormonal imbalance or weight management.

Lisa has given nutrition advice to both my husband and I on several occasions and has really helped us make positive changes to our health and well-being. She is so knowledgeable and passionate about nutrition and really knows her stuff - she even managed to turn my husband (the non-believer!) into a believer and her advice has made a real difference where his GPs and medical practitioners had drawn a bit of a blank. On top of that, she has a lovely, calm and warm personality and is so genuine and supportive. Cannot recommend highly enough! Thank you for everthing Lisa xx

I have been seeing Lisa for about a year now for my acne issues. She has given sooooo many recommendation for supplements and tips for making diet changes easier. I was very careful with what I ate before I saw Lisa, knowing that dairy and sugar are pretty bad for any skin problems, but Lisa explained there was more to do in some areas, and less I had to do in others! It just made eating become much less complicated and less of a hassle!

But the thing I love best is that she's always thinking of you. I always receive follow up messages to check how everything is going, and I can always ask her a question at any time. I feel so comfortable talking with her and she really is so knowledgable and caring! I couldn't recommend Lisa more highly!!! xxxx

I visited Lisa a little while back when I was struggling with fatigue, bloating and just generally feeling a little crappy. I train hard and always try to eat pretty well so I was confused as to why I was feeling like this. Lisa sat with me, discussed everything, reviewed food diaries, mood etc and we gradually made changes, some of which, like avoiding carbonated drinks had an immediate effect. I opted to have a blood test for food intolerances, knowing I was already dairy intolerant I was intrigued to find out if there was anything else- there were some things that surprised me, but again, Lisa went through everything even offering alternatives for foods I thought I would miss out on.

Lisa is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and a delight to chat to especially re: food and nutrition- you can see she is passionate about it because of how she lights up when discussing it. You'll definitely learn something talking to her!!
