Seeking a clinic appointment…
I am not currently accepting new clients in my Nutritional Therapy practice, and for safety reasons, I am afraid I cannot provide individual advice, nutrition information or health guidance by email.
If you wish to search for a qualified professional in your area by visiting one of the following:
For those on a budget and with time to travel, the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in Richmond (the school where I trained) offers appointments with final year students and graduate practitioners on placement, as well as specialist & experienced practitioners – all in their main clinic. They are also on hand to take client enquiries and if they are unable to take a case on (often because the client lives too far away) they will carefully research and recommend the best practitioner for you based on location and specialism.
Seeking nutrition advice…
Please note that for safety reasons, I cannot provide personal advice regarding nutrition via email or other messaging facilities (such as direct messages on Instagram). For any health-related concerns, please speak to your GP or healthcare provider in the first instance. I’d also recommend that the best place to get safe and appropriate personalised nutrition advice is in consultation with an appropriately qualified professional.
For more general information, hints, tips and recipes, however, please do take a look at my Articles, Recipes and sign up to my Newsletter. You should find plenty of inspiration to browse through at your leisure.
Seeking an ingredient swap…
I know that many people, for various reasons, are unable to consume certain ingredients. Generally speaking, I’d suggest that most of my recipes are flexible enough to take adaptations as required (perhaps with the exception of baking, which tends to be a more precise science). So please feel free to experiment and get creative.
Unfortunately, unless I have specifically tested the suggested swap myself, I can’t say exactly how the finished dish turns out and am therefore reluctant to give specific instructions for such changes via email. You never know though – your adaptations might even improve the recipe!
Here are a few swap ideas to help get you started:
|Can’t eat…||Try instead…|
|Certain nuts||Try using other nuts or seeds (or don’t use them at all). Swap specific nut butters for other nut butters (or tahini).|
|Chickpeas||Other pulses / beans (and vice versa)|
|Certain grains||Swap for a different grain (i.e., rice for quinoa) or adapted alternative (i.e., gluten-free plain flour vs. standard plain flour). If using grains as an accompaniment (i.e., pasta), try adding more starchy vegetables / peas instead.|
If you aren’t gluten-free, please feel free to use standard flour in my recipes instead.
|Coconut oil||Olive oil|
|Specific vegetables / fruits||Substitute with other similar vegetables / fruits.|
|Eggs||In baking, try using a chia or flax egg instead.|
If ingredient swaps leave you feeling puzzled, there is a whole section on this in my everyday family-friendly cookbook, Simply Good For You.
Seeking career advice…
If you are considering a career in nutrition, firstly, that’s brilliant news! Unfortunately, however, I am unable to respond personally to queries regarding a potential change in career, or give specific nutritional career advice, as it is so personal and individual. For confidentiality reasons, I am also unable to accept interns or student observations in my work.
There are a number of different places you can study nutrition, depending on your background and previous education level. My one key piece of advice is to please ensure that any course you do decide to take is accredited, appropriately evidence-based, and offers supervised and structured clinical practice experience if you do not have this already as part of your job.
I personally studied nutritional therapy for 4 years at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition. Visit their website for more information. Please also read my article Life as a Nutritional Therapist for more insight into the reality of the vocation and lifestyle of being a nutritional professional. I wish you all the very best for your journey.
