Diabetes management can involve diverse diets such as low-carb, ketogenic, and low-glycemic options, but there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. That’s where I come in! Personalised plans are the answer: focusing on insulin response and healthy weight for type 2 diabetes. Beyond macronutrients, food choices matter, such as increasing plant-based proteins while reducing animal-based ones.
Gut health also plays a vital role; it’s not just about glycemic index. Strategies include glutamine supplementation, targeted probiotics, and identifying gut issues through assessments. Consulting a nutrition professional for tailored advice is essential.
With 3 plans to choose from, I provide full support during your journey navigating diabetes and pre-diabetes. During our 1-2-1 sessions we’ll discuss your progression and implement new action points to help achieve your optimal health.

The key diabetes-related issues I work with in my practice as an evidence-based 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:
Do you suffer from nausea, heartburn, or bloating? can have many causes? For people with diabetes, these common digestion issues shouldn’t be ignored.
That’s because high blood sugar can lead to gastroparesis, a condition that affects how you digest your food.
Diabetes is the most common known cause of gastroparesis and I can help mitigate and avoid gastroparesis and the associated problems through tailored diet planning.
Increasing vegetables and plant-based proteins and reducing animal ones can make the difference when trying to manage diabetes and pre-diabetes.
As a nutritional therapist I can help you find the best recipes and food combinations for you to introduce these foods in your diet.
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.
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.
