Nutritional Therapy is the application of evidence-based, nutritional science for the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Registered Nutritional Therapists use a full case history, assessments and tests to identify potential nutritional imbalances and deficiencies and the underlying causes of chronic conditions and help their clients understand how these may contribute to their current symptoms and health concerns.
Your Therapist will recommend a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan, including specific foods and supplements and strategies for optimising sleep, reducing stress and a regular, effective movement programme.
Throughout your course of consultations there will be regular reviews of your progress and life-coaching sessions to keep you motivated and on-track, working towards bringing your body back into balance and optimum health.
Nutritional Therapy is a complementary therapy and works effectively alongside conventional medicine.
It is particularly effective for chronic conditions such as depression, skin conditions, (such as eczema and psoriasis), weight management, type 2 diabetes, digestion problems,( including inflammatory bowel disease and IBS), arthritic pain, fatigue, osteoporosis, thyroid problems, sex hormonal imbalances, (including PCOS, PMS, acne, fibroids and endometriosis).

Nutritional Therapy Questionnaire
Lucy works with various naturopathic therapies to help get your body back into balance. Naturopathy is a very holistic therapy as all aspects of a person are considered, including the emotional, mental and physical.
Lucy graduated from the University of Westminster with a first-class honours degree in Naturopathy in 2010. As part of her studies she learnt about naturopathic nutrition, detoxing and cleansing, therapeutic massage, lymphatic cleansing, naturopathic hydrotherapy, BachFlower remedies and other fascinating natural health knowledge that everyone should know about!
Lucy has always been interested in complementary medicine, particularly the effects food can have on mood. She discovered Naturopathy when living in Australia in her mid-20s and a few years later took the plunge into returning to university and retraining. She is also a Reiki level 2 practitioner which she incorporates into her naturopathic practice.
Her approach in practice is very holistic, exploring the mental/emotional, physical and biochemical aspects of a person and how this will be affecting their health. Her treatment plans are based on this holistic approach and she really enjoys working with her patients to encourage them to make the changes that are achievable for them.
Lucy is registered with the General Council and Register of Naturopaths and is fully insured to practice. She is currently studying for a Masters in Nutritional Therapy and hopes to have her MSc by 2016.
