About KIRSTEN

Hello!

In practice since 2005, I have a BSc Hons degree in Nutritional Medicine. I am a registered nutritionist with the British Association for Nutrition (BANT) and a member of the UK regulator of Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

Alongside my clinical practice, for 5 years I was the nutritionist for a leading-edge supplement company.
 

I have been passionate about nutritional therapy for over 25 years after seeking help from a nutritionist in my early 20’s for stubborn weight (I was a size 14-16) and IBS, which were both resolved. I had also suffered with PMS since age 14, later diagnosed as PMDD. As part of my degree, I carried out a clinical study on the effect of diet and supplementation on premenstrual syndrome for my dissertation. 
 

Then, a very challenging period in my 30’s led to post-viral fatigue from flu, culminating in miscarriages and a serious postnatal mental illness after my first child was born. Of note, I also have 3 paternal family members with bipolar. Therefore, I find it especially rewarding helping people with mental health disorders, including depression, bipolar and ADHD, and stress-related health issues, such as anxiety, fatigue and burn-out. I help save clients’ time, money and energy, navigating how to best improve their health, as many have spent a lot on therapies and supplements with few tangible results.
 

As a busy, working mum, now 46, of two boys, I am very aware of the demands and pressure of modern life. A well-nourished body is more resilient and better equipped to face these challenges and has the fuel to get you into a positive cycle of self-care.
 

I have seen time and time again how the right diet can calm down the stress response, improve mental health, your weight and increase vitality, digestion and hormone balance. My manner is warm, compassionate, down-to-earth and non-judgemental. Get in touch today and let's see how I can help you make some positive changes that will enhance the quality of your life. I look forward to hearing from you.
