My mission is to help people with gut issues find long lasting relief from bloating, abdominal pain and unpredictable bowel habits, so they can get their lives back!
My Story + Approach
Nine years ago I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). I was struggling with abdominal pain, bloating, unpredictable bowels and urgency. My doctor simply told me to take anti-spasmodic medication and to follow a healthy diet.
As a student dietitian my diet was fairly healthy, including lots of fruit, vegetables and pulses. However, eating more fruit and vegetables only made my symptoms worse. I experienced diarrhoea and urgency every day. I became more and more confused about what to eat and felt increasingly more anxious about going out. I felt alone and isolated as I felt too embarrassed to talk about my symptoms.
Eventually through my university training and countless hours of research I was able to find relief from my symptoms. I identified my triggers and slowly worked on improving my gut health. This had a huge impact on my quality of life allowing me to do the things I loved again like eating out without fear, go hiking, and travel without worrying where the nearest toilet is.
Now I want to help you to get on top of your gut symptoms!
My own experience with IBS is what spured me to specialise as an IBS dietitian. I have over 6 years of experience seeing clients in GP practices, health centres and hospital outpatient clinics. Over the past two years, I have also led the low FODMAP service in the community in my NHS role and have helped multiple clients find relief from gut symptoms. I recently launched my virtual private practice to be able help more people across the UK and Europe.
I work closely with all my clients to help develop a step by step plan tailored to their symptoms, lifestyle, cultural beliefs and the latest evidence. Through this method I have helped hundreds find relief from gut symptoms. I am incredibly excited to work with you!
