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.
