Hi! I’m Gail, a Registered Nutritionist
It has been almost 25 years since I first came across nutritional therapy. Hormonal issues in my teens and twenties, and a subsequent diagnosis of endometriosis, led me to work with a Nutritional therapist. This had such a profound and positive effect on my life that I decided to pursue a second career as a registered nutritionist.
It took 4 years of study. But I loved the learning. I graduated in 2013 from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London and have since continued to study alongside working. I am currently in my final year (2019-2020) of a Master’s of Science (MSc) in Advanced Nutrition. My dissertation topic is focused on menopause and specifically how diet and exercise may help in managing weight gain and abdominal fat in menopausal women. A very interesting and timely topic for me…
I have found that my passion lies in supporting women to manage their hormonal issues through nutrition and lifestyle choices. With the knowledge that I have gained from both my personal journey and professional experiences, my mission is to empower women to live their healthiest lives especially in mid-life and beyond.
