I am a qualified teacher and mind body eating coach with a background in science. I studied for a BSc. in Biomedical sciences, an MSc. in Immunology and a P.G.C.E in Education. I was employed as a scientist in a medical laboratory for twelve years. In addition, I trained as a coach at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating and as a Nutrigenomics Practitioner at Lifecode Gx. This has given me the perfect basis from which to apply genotype analysis to help clients improve their health and wellness.
I have suffered with chronic health issues for many years. Doctors offered me diagnoses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, menopause and historical hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, all of which have limited medical solutions. Then I explored my genetic variations. This threw up so much information and suggested many diet and lifestyle changes that I could implement. It also highlighted the need to improve my metabolic health. Following a number of dietary tweaks and behaviour changes my health is now excellent.
