KIMBERLY (Diploma Naturopathic Nutrition, mBANT, CNHC)
My name is Kimberly and I'm a London-based nutritional therapist and yoga teacher. I qualified from the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in September 2016 where I obtained my diploma in naturopathic nutrition. I am a member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
My interest in nutrition developed after I gave birth to my son in 2010. I wanted to get a really good understanding of how the foods I ate would impact on my health post partum. I also wanted to make well informed choices for my son as he moved onto solid foods. My curiousity led me to delve deeper into the science behind nutrition and its impact on our mind and bodies. The more I read, the more my fascination grew. In addition, I completely changed my diet thereby resolving some minor health niggles I'd developed following my pregnancy. Eager to learn more, I signed up to study nutrition in earnest with the aim of empowering people to make informed food choices and feel the better for it.
At present I regularly see clients with a range of health needs in my role as student clinic assistant supervisor, though my particular areas of interest include working with clients affected by cancer, adult acne, PCOS and female hormonal imbalances.
I have personally chosen to follow a whole food plant-based diet and to share plant-based recipes on my blog. However, my clients don't need to be vegetable lovers to work with me! I am committed to developing a plan that is tailored to individual needs regardless of dietary preferences!
I do not diagnose, treat or cure any conditions. My role as a nutritional therapist is simply to offer clients the opportunity to learn more about enhancing and optimising their health and well-being.
If you are being treated by a doctor, please know that my aim will be to work with you in conjunction with your health care professionals.
Please do not stop taking any medication without the consent of your doctor.
And finally, nutritional therapy is not a one pill wonder. Although you may see some immediate improvements it can take the body time to adjust to a new way of eating and living.
