PRACTITIONER PROFILE for Honor Oak Wellness Rooms
1. What do you love most about Nutritional Therapy?
I love being a health detective. I love getting to the root cause of the health issues as so often there are many layers to a person and why they are in the situation they are in. It's such a buzz when people improve their health from advice you have given them. Part of my job is to give them the advice they need, but at the same time, explaining to them about biology and physiology. This empowers my clients to support themselves better and understand the signals their body gives them.
2. How do you tailor your service to each client?
I tailor everything to each client, as there is no 'size fit all'. The protocol is designed depending on where they are in their journey, how much time they have to dedicate to their new lifestyle, and how open to they are to change their habits. I look at each client as a whole so it’s important to take in all of these aspects when designing a protocol, as you want them to succeed.
3. What is your favourite thing about what you do & why?
One of my passions is debunking health and food 'myths' that are rife in the media and show clients that food and health doesn't need to be complicated or stressful. It's really satisfying when clients (re)discover foods they thought were (in their minds) on the 'bad' list that they now enjoy and make them feel great.
4. What else do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I admit I also am very nerdy reading about nutrition and well being in my spare time. But since I have three children we spend a lot of time together as a family, seeing friends, cooking, gardening and getting out in nature or to the beach when I can. I like the simple things in life. The lagom way.
5. What are the 3 things you are most grateful for?
Every day I am grateful for the good health of my family, my amazing bunch of friends that inspire me, and having a job that I love.
