My aim to help people make lifestyle and nutritional changes in order to reduce, prevent and avoid common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.
After studying and working as a mental health nurse I went onto to study nutritional therapy, life coaching and am currently training to be a Certified Functional Food Coach specialising in nutrition specifically for stress, anxiety and depression.
I work with individual clients as well as giving presentations, talks and demos to support lifestyle and nutritional changes to support a healthier, happier and more fulfilling lifestyle.
Whether someone you know or love suffers from severe mental illness or you suffer from regular bouts of depression and anxiety, it’s a topic that touches us all. After working for a year post qualification as a Mental Health nurse I felt i was sticking a plaster on a deep-seated cut that needed much more attention. There are many aspects of our society and western world that need to be addressed to help prevent common mental health problems such as stress, anxiety and depression. I believe that by taking ownership of YOUR lifestyle, nutrition and mind it is possible to prevent some of the major mental and physical problems without the need for medical intervention.
Our mental health starts in our gut. The link between nutrition and mental health is undeniable. We can not expect to have a healthy mind by eating a bad diet of processed foods and sugar just as we would not expect to have a fit body. When I left my career as a mental health nurse I studied Nutritional therapy and continue to develop of my knowledge on the subject of whole foods and mental health. The recipes I create are based on local, seasonal and sustainable produce to help ensure nutritional density and variation as well as being affordable and accessible to all. I am currently undertaking a unique course to be a Certified Functional Food Coach specialising in food for mental health. This will allow me to carry out assessments and advice informed lifestyle and nutritional changes supported by recipes, coaching support and recipe plans.
