Nutritional Therapy

Personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan, functional lab testing and mindset support to help you to achieve your personal transformation 

Nutritional therapy – Naturally Nourish

Many health conditions are diet and lifestyle related and nutritional therapy can have a big impact.  I’m delighted that you are keen to find out what it can do for you. If you are ready to put yourself first, take control of your health and commit to some changes, please get in touch.

What to expect from my Naturally Nourish programme:

I am trained to consider your full health history, diet and lifestyle using a Functional Medicine approach. This is highly personalised and looks at how you are functioning in all aspects of your health and explains how health issues can be interrelated. Sometimes stressful life events, unhealthy lifestyle choices and poor eating habits can result in nutritional deficiencies and imbalances, causing chronic symptoms of ill health.

Together we will work on bringing your body back to balance, supporting nutrition and the terrain which means optimising your intake of nutrients and ensuring that your body is in the best environment for you to thrive. Identifying and helping you to address why your health issues have manifested are an important part of the process.

I aim to help you to reach your full health potential. Nutritional Therapy does not aim to replace conventional medical care and I will collaborate with your GP or other health professionals involved in your care if appropriate, and with your consent. I may suggest functional laboratory testing which can often pick up imbalances and which are generally not offered on the NHS and I may ask you to see your GP for a medication review if I feel this is appropriate.  

 I will work with you for a minimum of 3 months to help you to progress towards your goals. Some clients may decide to work with me over a longer period with set goals in mind. This can be helpful for clients with more complex health issues or for extended support with personalised dietary approaches to support specific conditions where progress might be slower. We are all different and different dietary approaches suit different people. My role is to work out the right one for you. I utilise scientifically researched and effective therapeutic food plans developed by the Institute for Functional Medicine, which are designed to support many chronic conditions as well as to optimise nutrition generally.  

I like to test all clients for food sensitivities and this is included within my 3 month full programme fee.  I utilise YorkTest finger-prick blood tests as they are leaders in the field of food intolerance testing.    

Nutritional Therapy can be a very effective solution for chronic symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, poor sleep, achy joints and digestive symptoms like bloating, diarrhoea, constipation or acid reflux, as well as improving your body’s resilience to colds and viruses and supporting the symptoms of chronic conditions.   



Please note – I am not currently accepting new clients due to a period of post graduate study

Returning clients – £75 per hour  (if there is a significant time lapse, a longer appointment may be required and this will be charged at £100)

Laboratory testing may be recommended such as stool analysis, food intolerance and allergy testing, hormone, genetic or nutrient profiles. These can provide extremely useful additional information including diagnosing nutrient deficiency, and imbalances related to digestive function or hormones. Please note that unless stated otherwise, purchase of tests is optional and at additional cost.

Some private health insurance companies will pay for or towards nutritional therapy consultations. Please check with your individual insurer.


I was struggling with my health and wanted help to understand what role my diet might be playing in this. Shirley helped me to consider what I was eating and the likelihood that my symptoms were connected to my diet and she offered choices about how I could explore this further.

I really liked Shirley’s approach of considering and helping me to reflect on myself as a whole, and looking at what I was eating through this lens. I think she is very good at listening to what you say and not making assumptions. We talked about what I was eating and where my diet was lacking in nutrients and her advice was really tailored to what would work for me and so was very achievable. I now feel confident that I am eating a diet that is able to fuel my body and help it function. Amazingly my old food choices don’t call to me at all, which I think must be a sign that I am doing something right!

Shirley has a gentle, kind manner; she gives a professional and structured service, and as a client I have always felt aware of her genuine desire to help, which is demonstrated in her respectful and caring approach.


Shirley commits to her clients and she actually cares about you. She’s warm, friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. Finding out the healthiest and most conducive way to eat has been an ongoing journey for me but I am without doubt healthier for it.

Shirley’s helped me find good nutrition books to read (because I like reading) and fantastic videos to watch online. She’s really opened up a new world to me, and I’m so much more knowledgeable about my health and nutrition than I used to be. Her style is gentle encouragement. She never pushes you – just informs you, educates you and chats things through with you.

I always look forward to seeing her. Shirley is one of the best decisions I ever made.


I have had digestive symptoms for many years and tried all sorts of things in the past. Shirley is the first therapist who really wanted to listen to all the details. She suggested a stool test, which showed that I had parasites! I was a bit shocked but Shirley explained that they are quite common and outlined the different approaches to getting rid of them. I decided that I wanted to go with the quickest option of antibiotics and Shirley wrote to my doctor with the test result and I was given the treatment I needed. She then suggested lots of ways to make my gut healthy afterwards. This has made a huge difference to me. I can’t thank you enough Shirley.


Shirley is a star. She is very professional and super knowledgeable about food. With Shirley’s help I have discovered that certain foods cause my symptoms of bloating and tiredness. I feel so much better and Shirley’s guidance has been invaluable.


At my request Shirley arranged genetic nutrition testing. She assessed all my tests and we had a great consultation whereby she explained the results and the implications, which she followed up with an action plan for me to maximise my health and potential. She was able to answer all my questions, make connections and reassure me that I am now on the right path. I discovered that my genes make me suited to a Mediterranean diet, which was a revelation to me. I am now focusing on giving my body the nutrients I know it needs.

Whilst I feel frustrated that I didn’t take these tests sooner, I now know without doubt what I look like on the inside and how to be well!

If you’re thinking about getting tested, do it today; I feel I’ve been given a crystal ball to look into the future. Fantastic!
