I wonder if you are visiting my website because you need help with your health and knowing what to eat, and you are overwhelmed by the ever increasing and conflicting advice from the media and just wish to feel yourself again?
I’m Amanda, I’m a wife and mother of two. I am a keen cyclist and I’m passionate about helping individuals adopt a healthier life. I hope that I can inspire you to become a healthier and happier version of yourself.
My interest in nutrition began whilst we were living in Spain, everyone there seemed to be glowing with good health. It became apparent that their diets were so much more colourful, fresh and natural in comparison to our standard British diet which was heavily dependent on processed, beige food. I gradually adopted the Mediterranean diet and was amazed by the effects it had on us, prompting me to pursue a career in nutrition.
Whilst studying, I discovered that I was sub-clinically hypothyroid (my thyroid was mildly under-active) but I’ve been lucky in that I still do not require medication. However, it certainly prompted me to research and implement every advantage I could give myself. Therefore, I have a great interest in this area and have many clients who suffer from an under-active thyroid. I also see many individuals with gut issues such as IBS, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and anxiety. Having suffered myself, I know how difficult it can be to turn the corner to good health.
I’m now a degree qualified Registered Nutritional Therapist with a BSc in Nutritional Therapy. I run a nutrition practice in Cambridge. I really enjoy educating and inspiring my clients on how their diet and lifestyle can work in their favour and how to implement change. Helping them to feel as well as possible and to reduce their risk of disease using current evidence based science. I believe we can all improve our health by having a better understanding of our issues and giving our bodies a chance to come back into balance. I also know and appreciate that as individuals, a one size fits all approach rarely works.
Amanda is a member of The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and is a Nutritional Therapy Council Registered Practitioner with the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
For people struggling with weight, I coach for the Metabolic Balance® Programme. In my years of practicing I have found it to be the most effective tool for sustained weight loss. Please click here to find out more about the programme .

I think it is important that when choosing a complimentary therapist you understand the principles which underpin the practice:
- I use a science evidence based approach to Nutritional Therapy.
- Each client is viewed as being biochemically unique with his/her own individual needs.
- The body functions as a network of interconnected systems, rather than organs working in isolation.
- Being healthy equals feeling energised and well, not just the absence of a disease.
- That by looking after ourselves in the here and now, we can reduce the risk of poor health in the future.
- The Nutritional Therapy advice I give is aimed towards helping the person, rather than simply targeting a disease or deficiency.
