Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is an evidence based approach to optimising health through personalised nutrition and lifestyle support.

In Nutritional Therapy we look at the big picture and aim to identify and support possible imbalances in the body systems (digestive, immune, endocrine, cardiovascular systems etc) to reduce chronic illness and promote optimum health.

Nutritional Therapy focuses on the whole person, not just a set of symptoms, by taking into account diet, lifestyle, genetics, environmental factors and stressors and how these factors combined, are impacting on the client’s health status.

Nutritional Therapy may benefit the following health concerns

  • ​Skin Issues (acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea)
  • Digestive Health (bloating, IBS, constipation, diarrhoea, gall bladder support )
  • Food Intolerances/Allergies
  • Blood Sugar Balancing (sugar cravings, energy slumps, fatigue)
  • Gut Health/Autoimmunity & Low Immunity (recurrent infections, colds)
  • Hormonal Imbalances / Women’s Health / Adrenal & Thyroid Imbalance



What to expect?

Prior to initial consultation the client is requested to complete a questionnaire to assess health goals, provide a detailed health history and include a 3-day food diary.

Initial consultations typically last up to 90 minutes. This involves additional information gathering, assessing the client’s needs and providing recommendations, meal ideas & recipes as well as action points tailored to the individual. Supplements may also be recommended for a specific period.

Follow up consultations are usually arranged for 3-4 weeks after the initial consultation.


Initial appointment – €80

Follow up appointments – €65

​Skype appointments can also be arranged. € POA
