About

Julie was inspired to study Nutrition whilst looking for solutions to her own health problems in 2002.  Her career as an international event manager was further impacting on her health, so she took a career change and started studying nutrition and helped herself back to health whilst continuing to work full time.  Julie was fatigued and experienced high anxiety and symptoms considered to be IBS along with painful menstruation and headaches every month, and looking back was on the verge of burnout.   She changed both her lifestyle and diet and is now able to share her learning and expertise around these issues with you.

Julie has over 12 years experience in the field of nutrition and helping people get back their health and life, she graduated with a BSc in Nutritional Medicine from West London University in 2009.  She studied part time for 5 years whilst working full time.

To compliment her nutrition practice  she completed a  diploma in Indian Head Massage from the College of Naturapathic Medicine in 2010; Indian Head massage is an ayurvedic practice, a wonderful way to experience rest and relaxation. If you want to de-stress, this could be perfect for you.

She is also a qualified NeuroLinguistic (NLP) practitioner.  This is a useful tool when change needs to occur and to help motivate clients and move them past their limiting beliefs.

In 2020 Julie began the journey in Reiki, an ancient energy healing method and is now a qualified Reiki I practitioner  and will be continuing this journey until she is a Reiki master, this is intended to be used to help her with her own healing and also to help others with theirs, once she has completed Reiki II, by the end of 2021.

She is currently working on a diploma in eating disorders, hoping to qualify in 2021 with the National Centre of Eating Disorders.  This will allow Julie to work with diagnosed patients with eating disorders within a multidisciplinary team.

In the past Julie has was running small healthy eating workshops for MIND, the Mental Health Charity, for their service users and carers.  She has also delivered nutritional talks and Indian Head Massage treatments at Yoga Retreats in UK, Spain and Switzerland.  She is a keen yogi herself and understandings the power of exercise and a healthy mind.  As her practice became more patient lead, her focus has been on further study and gathering more knowledge through CPD events to support busy practice.

As a member of BANT,  the official professional body for Nutritional Therapists, Julie ran quarterly meetings with local BANT members to discuss current issues within the nutrition field.  These meetings allowed for sharing and learning within private practice and establish effective promotion of Nutritional Medicine within the area.

Julie is  registered with CNHC, accredited government regulatory body for Nutritional Therapists and complimentary therapists. Both BANT and CNHC only accept fully qualified and insured practitioners from accredited courses.

In 2012, Julie  attended and completed 5 days training with AFMCP™-UK  in London.  Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function.

The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches health care professional’s how to apply these principles in practice through an intensive 5 day training course called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™.

Here is a description of how Nutritional Therapist work from ‘skills for health’ website:

“Nutritional Therapy Practitioners work in preventive medicine, the optimization of physical and mental health, and in the treatment of chronic diseases, often with complex multiple causes.  Nutritional Therapy encompasses personalized dietary therapy and nutraceutical prescription, and life style advice within a functional medicine framework.

The scope of practice for Nutritional Therapy excludes artificial (parenteral/enteral) feeding and dietary management of acute life threatening states, e.g. intestinal or renal failure, and injury trauma”.
