As a nutritional therapist I see the body as one and understand how all systems are connected; my work is focused on bringing balance through dietary changes, nutrients and lifestyle suggestions, finding the root causes of my patients health concerns and overcome them.
I am Italian, therefore incredibly passionate about food! So my plans are focused on introducing great-tasting foods and nutrients rather than excluding them. Through nutrition and professional guidance I can help you thrive and fall in love with food again.
Consultations can either be held online or in person at my Saturday Clinic in Dalston at ACU.E8, OR Wednesday clinic in Hackney at Movementholic. Appointments can be conducted in English or Italian.
With 3 plans to choose from, I provide full support during your health journey. During our 1-2-1 sessions we’ll discuss your health goals, progression and implement new action points to help achieve optimal health.
Not sure which plan is right for you?
Everybody is unique, and so is the approach to each individual case. Simply book a free call or contact us and we will tailor the plan to suit you.
The core health issues I work with in my practice as an evidence-based London nutritionist and qualified nutritional therapist:
Diabetic conditions and blood sugar balance
Have you just being diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes and need some professional guidance?
Do you feel like your blood sugar levels are all other the place and you are stuck in sugar-rush/sugar-crush rollercoaster?
I have extensive knowledge in:
Are you struggling with digestion, bloating, irregular bowel movements and feel like many foods don’t suit you?
Are you confused on why you are experiencing particular symptoms and you don’t know what should be changed in your diet to feel better?
I am experienced in helping patients with:
Chronic Fatigue and altered immunity
Tired of feeling tired and continuously catching bugs?
You can’t identify what’s wrong, but you know that you want to change things around to feel energised, healthy and thrive again?
Together we can identify the best diet to bring balance back and help you reach your health goals to address:
I am a fully qualified and experienced Nutritional Therapist with a passion and deep understanding of human nutrition, biomedicine, pathology and scientific research.
Backed by the latest scientific information and research, I am a member of the Royal Society of medicine, BANT (British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine) and CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) the main regulatory bodies for UK nutritional therapists. I can liaise with your primary healthcare provider, and the complementary nature of my practice means it can work with any current therapies you are undertaking.
Most importantly, I love food! and throughout my career I have helped many people achieve their health goals and overcome challenges through personalised, targeted nutrition with great tasting food.
This soup is unbelievably easy and quick to make and is also super tasty! Rich in protein and fibre this soup is made with seasonal ingredients, make it also a convenient option in these times of imported vegetables shortages. I always advocate using in season produce as those are likely to be grown locally and…
When seeing my clients, I always ask them to describe or show me their nails – and I know I am not the only therapist doing that. Ever wondered why? The reason is that nails (shape, colour, quality) can give indications and clues about general health status, providing an extra tool to spot possible unbalances…

Ultimate Nut Roast This great nut roast recipe is a total people’s pleaser – plant-based dieters and not have always loved this roast when I have served it for a Sunday lunch! The star of the show in this roast is pumpkin – one of my favourite vegetables! Pumpkins are a great source of fibre,…
There is so much advice about the best diet to manage type2 diabetes, spacing from low carbohydrate, ketogenic and low glycaemic diet…but which one is the best? First of all, let’s understand what those diets are: *Low carbohydrate diet: there are no set rules for what a “low carb” diet is, but most professionals agree…
It is the holiday season, and we are surrounded by sweets and sugary treats – it is very hard to resist! Whilst I believe enjoying the occasional treat during the festive season is healthy and won’t hinder your diet, continuous sugar cravings and intake of sweets will. Tired of being in a never ending roller-coaster…
When diagnosed with diabetes one of the first dietary interventions suggested is to limit foods high in simple sugars – biscuits, soft drinks, sweets… This could represent a drastic change of diet, and patients can be tempted by the “sugar-free” version of those same foods..no sugar, no harm, right? Is not that simple. There is…
Romanesco cauliflower is definitely an interesting looking vegetable! First documented in Italy in the 16th century is characterised by a “spiky” look and bright green or live yellow colour. Similar to cauliflower in nutritional value, it has a nuttier but more delicate flavour. Cauliflowers are part of the cruciferous family, which includes broccoli, kale, chards,…
Diabetes is a complex condition involving multiple body systems, including the gut and the gut barrier function. Helping diabetic patients with a personalised nutrition plan shouldn’t focus exclusively on foods’ glycaemic index, but also on gut health and specifically on the gut barrier’s health. Recent studies have found a strong correlation between diabetes (both type1…
It's understandable to have questions when considering any type of holistic therapy. Below are some of the key questions I get asked about nutritional therapy and my clinic.
Registered Nutritional Therapists
Are qualified practitioners with a minimum of 3 years of study at university level 6 in the field of human nutrition. Nutritional therapists usually work in private practice offering bespoke plans which include both nutrition and lifestyle recommendation. Nutritional Therapists follow the Functional Medicine Model, an holistic model which looks at how different body systems interact with each other and how are impacted by nutrition, genetics and lifestyle recognising the uniqueness of each individual. The title is not protected by law, but Nutritional Therapists are regulated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), a regulatory body, and a professional body such as the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT).
Is not a protected title and practitioners operating in the nutrition industry can call themselves so. However registered nutritionists have obtained a university degree and usually work in research, education and in policy development. Nutritionists are regulated by AfN which governs the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN).
is a title protected by law, obtained by someone who has a degree in Dietetics. Dieticians mainly operate within the NHS or research and are regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and registered with the British Dietetic Association (BDA).
BANT (British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine) is a professional organisation for Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioners and Registered Dietitians which are trained and qualified in clinical practice to meet national standards and work in a one-to-one setting.
BANT practitioner members are required to be registered either with Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) or be statutorily regulated. CNHC holds a register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA), an independent body accountable to the UK Parliament. BANT members are also required to meet Continuing Professional Development (CPD) standards.
Being a BANT member highlights the high standard of my training and work practice, reassuring clients of the quality of the consultations and plans I provide at Food Power Nutrition.
Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine. It is relevant both for individuals looking to enhance their health and wellbeing and for those with chronic conditions wishing to work with or ‘consult’ a nutritional therapist in collaboration with other suitably qualified healthcare professionals. Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
I offer consultation via 3 different plans, with the 8 week and 12 week plans consisting of 3 and 6 sessions respectively. Three sessions is the minimum needed to achieve tangible results, which is why there isn’t a plan shorter than 8 weeks (other than the diet review). I would encourage committing to the 12 week/6 session plan, but 3 sessions is a great starting point. Further sessions can be booked ad hoc if needed. The diet review service consists of 1 appointment and a catch-up call a month after and is for clients who wish to review and seek a professional opinion of their current diet, but is not suitable to address health conditions.
Nutritional Therapy aims to create long lasting change. Those changes will be gradual but definitive, differently from allopathic medicine that aims to suppress symptoms for immediate relief. As each person is unique, also the speed on which results will be obtained is different and this is also impacted by how closely the suggested nutritional and supplemental plan is followed.
