Nutritional Therapy is a functional medicine science based complementary therapy that aims to empower the client to make dietary and lifestyle changes in order to help alleviate or prevent ailments and promote optimal health and vitality.
Far from being a punishment, it can be an exciting opportunity to rediscover the pleasure of food in order to look after the most precious thing we have – our bodies and our health.
In order for our bodies to work efficiently, we need to obtain the right balance of nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, healthy fats, water, vitamins and minerals. In this country we are very lucky to have an abundance of food, however not so fortunately much of this food is lacking in nutrients.
Because we are all individuals with different requirements we can also sometimes be eating what we think is a healthy diet, however it’s not the right one for us or we may be using up nutrients more rapidly than we are taking them in due to factors such as how much we work, sleep, where we live i.e. pollution, our age, metabolism, health issues, what we eat and drink etc.,
With over 15 years experience as a Nutritional Therapist , Fiona has worked with several thousand clients during this time helping them to feel better, improve their health and reach their full potential.
Fiona often calls herself a “nutritional therapist for the moderate” because she feels that a more gradual approach to dietary change often reaps longer term benefits, so instead of removing many foods from the diet or putting you on a “detox” and running the risk of failure, she will emphasise the foods to eat and work at changing your diet gradually so that several months later your diet is completely different and you will hopefully feel this has been achieved painlessly! If a person is very unwell then it may be necessary to implement a “stricter” regimen, however this will often not be forever.
There are a wide range of biochemical tests available including food intolerance, stool, saliva, hair and blood testing which can be used to investigate underlying reasons for symptoms that you may be experiencing. Please see her page on Biochemical Testing.
Progression not perfection can be a useful mantra!

I have just had my six-monthly diabetic check up at my local surgery and I have been given congratulations from both my GP and Diabetic Nurse but I feel the praise should be given to you for setting me on the straight and narrow path.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you. After years of turning up at the docs feeling extremely rough and getting nowhere I am really pleased to say that I have been taking Dr Wilsons supplements, only one of each a day, together with vit D spray you recommended I am feeling so much better. I am now doing 10+ miles a week on our treadmill and walking along beach etc which I would never have had the energy to do. I’m not entirely fixed but I’m definitely on the right road and I’m so very grateful that you gave me your time. I have also enrolled on an online nutritional therapist course, again, I would never have had the inclination to do, can’t thank you enough.
Fiona’s knowledge of nutrition is vast. Her holistic approach to her work means that you are treated as a person rather than a body with a symptom. She is unhurried, considerate and understanding, and a session with her is therapy in itself! If you are looking for someone to help you find the right nutritional stratagey to become healthier, fitter or just plain feel better, look no further. Book a consultation with Fiona – you won’t be disappointed.
First let me say “thank you” to you…for your care, love and attention to detail towards me, it has supported me over the last two years…in ways its hard to express. I genuinely don’t think I would be where I am without you.

Fiona gets fantastic results. I don’t know of anyone who hasn’t noticed an improvement in their health after they’ve been to see her. Me included.

I contacted Fiona after my 4 year old was diagnosed with e-coli, although she had recovered the e-coli was still present in her system and we were told that there was nothing anyone could do. Because of the nature of e-coli my daughter was not allowed to attend nursery or mix with other children, making the whole situation very difficult. Chatting this through with Fiona was very helpful and she was able to prescribe a selection of probiotics, which after a week took effect, with no negative side affects. During this time Fiona was very supportive and we kept in contact to chat through progress and any queries that came up. Fiona was a tremendous support to us.
Since we met, I can report that your advice has been working really well. I am eating nutty bars for breakfast, drinking loads of water (well compared to what I was!!), eating oily fish two or three times a week, taking Beta Plus with food (this has made all the difference).
Health wise I have been much, much better now only having an occasional bad stomach day but nothing compared to before.
