ABOUT
ME

Nutrition is the first step towards a happy, healthy life!

Hello and welcome, I'm Shelley - I specialise in supporting those living with or after cancer and autoimmune conditions. I am a Registered Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I trained at the prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine with additional postgraduate specialisms, including the NTEC accredited 'Systems Approach to Cancer', integrative Mycomedicine association expert, specialist nutrigenomics training and certified health coaching skills. In addition to supporting autoimmune conditions and living well with or after cancer, I focus on healthy ageing, men's and gut health. I am also a certified yoga teacher and level 4 cancer & rehab exercise specialist at Ananda Yoga.

Why Autoimmune and Cancer

Part of my journey to becoming a Nutritional Therapist, was to discover what health looked like for me as someone with coeliac disease and how optimising my diet and lifestyle could influence the wellness levels in my own life.  Some years ago a loved one was diagnosed with a grade 4 brain tumour, I was with them through treatments and end-of-life care. Then a decade later I lost two more loved ones to cancer. In more recent years cancer revisited our family - gratefully they are now a young survivor.  Supporting people with cancer through nutrition in prevention, treatment and survivorship to aid each unique person with their potential to thrive is very important to me.

Working with me

As a Nutritional Therapist I will work closely with you, usually on an individual basis, to conduct a holistic assessment of nutritional requirements. I will listen to your symptoms and health concerns. I will use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand nutritional factors affecting your health. I will then put an individual programme for diet and supplementation together for you. I will help you to understand how these changes might contribute to symptomatic relief and optimised health. In this way, I will empower you to support your overall health and wellbeing through nourishing the body and mind for a more balanced state through applied nutrition.

Getting started

Making lasting changes takes time, and so I work in packages, rather than one-off sessions, to get you the outcomes you seek.  We'll work together to make small manageable changes, plus support with follow ups to help you achieve your goals.
