Hi! I’m Nicola, a BANT registered nutritional therapist based in the UK.
I specialise in nutrition for thyroid health, brain health, and gut health, using a functional medicine approach.
I live in the Devonshire countryside with my husband and two Jack Russell's.
I enjoy a slower pace of life that is filled with time spent in nature, wholesome local produce, and relaxing walks. It does wonders for my health.
Also, I love food!
My autoimmunity story
I have lived with Hashimoto's disease and vitiligo since 2013. I felt constantly fatigued, dizzy, anxious, unable to concentrate and generally unwell with frequent migraines for years, but my doctor insisted my blood work was fine. I tried the keto diet, fasting, and HIIT training while unjustifiably putting on weight.
Everything changed once I saw a BANT registered nutritional therapist and learned what my body was asking for.
I have put my own Hashimoto’s into remission through diet and lifestyle changes and I no longer need any thyroid medication.
Brain health is a constant work in progress, especially as I hit perimenopause and I'm so grateful to have nutritional therapy to fall back on when I need it- I want that for you too.
Once I realised the power that nutrition and lifestyle can have on our health, I knew becoming a BANT registered nutritional therapy practitioner was my calling. So I trained to become a registered functional medicine nutritional therapy practitioner myself and have never looked back!
I have graduated from The Institute For Optimum Nutrition (DipION)
I’m a member of the British Association For Nutrition And Lifestyle Medicine (mBANT)
I’m registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (rCNHC)
I’m an AIP-certified coach.
I have also taken postgraduate training at the prestigious Kharrazian Institute in:
Mood and Anxiety Disorders
Chronic Fatigue and Pain Syndromes
Diabetes and Dysglycemia
Childhood developmental disorders
I continue to take post-grad training every year, including studying Immunology with Dr Sam Yanuk at Cogence Immunology® via their partnership with Pure Encapsulations® , nutrigenomics, perimenopause support, and I continue to keep up with the latest nutrition research.
