I am a qualified doctor with 12 years of experience and made the move from London to a village near Chipping Norton about 5 years ago. I am currently a partner at a busy and diverse GP practice in Oxford as well as a qualified nutritional therapist based around Chipping Norton (Oxfordshire) (accessible from Banbury, Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh).
After moving to the Cotswolds I became increasingly interested in food and lifestyle medicine. Always a foodie I wanted to find out more about this area of health in the hope that I could help patients prevent and manage their own conditions rather than be so dependent on pharmaceuticals. I enrolled at the College of Naturopathic Nutrition and undertook a diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition over the next 2 years. The course firmly solidified my belief in the importance of nutrition in health.
I am a member of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine, a new and forward thinking group trying to publicise the use of Lifestyle Medicine within the NHS. I am registered with BANT and CNHC.
I take an individual and holistic approach to your health. A detailed history will be taken at your first nutritional therapy appointment to find out exactly what could be causing and driving any condition you might have so that then we deal with the root cause of the problem. I may make suggestions about lifestyle changes as well as changes to your diet in order to best support you in your progress to optimum health.
When I'm not working you can find me enjoying the Cotswolds with my young family and our dog!
