UPDATE FOR 1 to 1 CLIENTS


Hi everyone,

As we navigate through the current challenges of COVID-19, I want to let you know that I am still taking new clients. However, the safety of my clients is my utmost priority. For this reason, I have decided to move all my face to face appointments to either telephone or video consultations. This does not compromise the efficiency of the consultation.

As a thank you to those in NHS and all the key workers( listed by the govt ),I am offering you 20% off my consultation fees for the next 6months.

I will be posting a few blog posts on diet and mental health around COVID-19 to help you all with more evidence based information. So, please do continue to check my blog posts.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Keep well during this challenging time.
