PERSON-CENTRED HEALTH SUPPORT
Because one diet does not fit all!
My aim is to help you celebrate food, by focussing on what you can eat, rather than what you can’t.
I love coaching people to reach their healthy goals.
An Individually tailored nutrition programme to reach your personal goal
A 12-week support programme includes:
A complete review of your health history, including assessment of diet, lifestyle, genetic factors and nutritional status.
90 minute initial consultation
Weekly 20-30min Zoom meetings and accountability
Meal planning, recipes and shopping list
Final consultation with recommendations
Functional testing will be offered where appropriate and charged separately. This can be a useful tool with which to pinpoint specific imbalances and manage improvements.
I will then work with you to devise a unique plan of manageable, bitesize changes and support you over a period of weeks to incoorporate them to reach your personal goal and transformation.
What is Nutritional Therapy?
What makes us individual is not just the food we eat, but the trauma we have experienced, the genes we have inherited, the lifestyle we choose, the family and friendships we keep and our own, special microbiome. These factors are all interrelated to make up the jigsaw puzzle that is ‘you’. Nutritional Therapy is about piecing this jigsaw together through science based research, in-depth consultation and discussion and in some instances, biochemical testing.
Registered Nutritional Therapists never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
I am fully qualified and insured, with a BSc in Nutritional Therapy from The University of West London and professional registration with the British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Management (BANT) and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). Prior to Nutritional therapy, I spent many years as a qualified, registered care manager, running homes for people with severe and complex needs.

I booked an appointment with Alison because of major problems with my skin. Alison adjusted my diet quite drastically (which needed to be addressed anyway), and educating me on what foods would be beneficial for me to eat. Within a month I'd seen drastic improvement of my skin and not only that, I had much more energy in my daily life and found getting out of bed much easier!
I would highly recommend Alison. She's kind, goes well above and beyond and gets results! Thanks Alison! MP, Swindon
