Julie was inspired to study Nutrition whilst coping with her own health issues.  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, she hasn’t looked back since.  She continues to learn through research, conferences and meeting people in her field of work allowing her to gather vast knowledge both scientific and clinical evidence on food, health and supplementation.

Julie graduated with a BSc in Nutritional Medicine from West London University in 2009.

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.

Julie is also a qualified NLP practitioner.  This is a useful tool when change needs to occur and to help motivate clients.

Julie has been 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!

As a member of BANT,  the official professional body for Nutritional Therapists, Julie runs quarterly meetings with local BANT members to discuss current issues within the nutrition field.  These meetings help share learning within private practice and establish effective promotion of Nutritional Medicine within the area.  She has recently been inviting local alternative therapists to these meetings to enable a cross referral process and to encourage local networking.

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”.
