I work one-on-one with my clients, delving into their health history, lifestyle and nutritional patterns, to create a thoroughly individualised intervention strategy towards improved health and physical performance.



I create general and sports nutrition courses for the education of general population and health practitioners. This applies to people who want to create their own health journey, as well as practitioners ready for their next stage of learning.
