What does a Nutritional Therapist do?

A nutritional therapist (NT) is a fully qualified practitioner who works with individuals on a one-to-one basis to support health and wellbeing. The advice is always personalised. It is a whole-body approach to nutrition and lifestyle that addresses the potential underlying causes of ill-health, rather than focusing on the symptoms.

I am a member of the Nutritional Therapists of Ireland (NTOI). Irish Life Health clients can claim up to €50 off the cost of a nutritional consultation. Check with your health insurance provider for details. 

Food First is my mantra. I am a passionate believer in the benefits of proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, and do not advocate supplements unless they are necessary. I help people to make changes that are sustainable and bring long-term improvements in health and wellbeing.

Salad Nicoise The classic dish uses tuna steaks, but I love it as a simple mid-week dinner with a jar of Shines wild Irish tuna and whatever else you have leftover. If I have some bread (stale is great) I like to make bruschetta, simply toasting the bread and then...
