About Me

Hello, I'm Kim - a qualified nutritionist (Dip ION, FdSc, BANT, CNHC) and weight loss specialist. Since graduating in 2008 I've worked with over 400 clients to help them lose weight (from a few pounds to over seven stone), fit into the clothes they love and feel comfortable with their body.

My articles and advice regularly feature in national magazines, newspapers and peer reviewed journals. I present at medical and beauty conferences and have featured on national television, including working as ITV's weight loss expert on This Morning.

I'm passionate about helping my clients lose weight. I know what it feels like to have tried different diets and different types of exercise, never really sure whether they would work or if it was possible to achieve a body I was happy in. I know what it's like to have friends who are naturally slim – despite having terrible diets! And I know the frustration of eating foods you believe to be healthy, yet despair as you watch that number on the scale gradually creep up… I know because I have been there myself.

Contrary to popular belief, not all nutritionists are effortlessly slim, nor do they have an automatic dislike for ‘unhealthy' food! I love my food and it took me a long time to find my own healthy balance between maintaining a weight I'm happy at, enjoying my food and feeling in control of my eating habits.

My story

I developed an interest in nutrition in my late teens – noticing that my weight had gradually started to increase. As a vegetarian I thought I was healthy, but in reality, my diet of grains, grains and more grains was not only making me gradually gain weight, it also left me low in energy and constantly craving sweet foods. The more magazine articles and books I read, the more I became confused about what a healthy diet actually was. I had already learnt a lot but there were big pieces of the puzzle missing.
When I was 20 I moved to London and I was fortunate enough - given my lack of qualifications! - to get a job managing a small weight loss clinic. I loved working with the clients, supporting them on their weight loss programmes and seeing their health and happiness improve. Unfortunately, after just three months, the owner of the clinic decided to close the business for personal reasons. I was sad to lose my job but it made me realise that this was exactly what I wanted to do for my career... it was time to bite the bullet and go back to school!

My studies and experience 

After doing work experience with an NHS dietician and meeting with a nutritionist to figure out the difference between the two, I decided the NHS dietician route wasn't for me and I preferred the flexibility of being an independent nutritionist.
In 2005 I enrolled onto a three years degree course at London's renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition and threw myself into studying all aspects of human health and disease in relation to food and nutrition. I graduated in 2008. 

Fast forward 10 years and I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to work at the weight loss clinic. It's led to a career I love and I'm so passionate about the work I do. There is nothing more fulfilling for me than helping my clients lose weight and seeing the incredibly positive impacts it has on their lives. From gaining confidence and making peace with their bodies, to seeing considerable improvements in health conditions and energy levels. The power of good nutrition, when tailored to individual needs, never ceases to amaze me.

I keep up to date with the latest scientific research and thinking in the fields of nutrition and weight management. I regularly attend conferences and read books and journals to ensure the advice I am giving my clients is as sophisticated and effective as possible. 
I'm a full member of CNHC (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council) BANT (British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy) and the Guild of Health Writers.

Working with me 

The more I studied (and continue to study) the more I realised that we are all so different. There's no one standard diet formula that suits everyone. We all have differing nutritional needs, different health concerns and different lifestyles. In my practice, I work with you as an individual, creating solutions tailored to your own unique needs.

When you work with me I am committed to getting you the results you desire. I'm here to support you, educate you and keep you motivated until you reach your goal. I'll do what I can to make sure you lose weight and have all of tools in place to maintain it long term.

If you have any questions you'd like to ask me, or if you'd like to book a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation to find out whether I can help you, please don't hesitate to contact me.
