Areas of Expertise

Personalised nutrition specific to your goals.

We focus on improving and optimising…

  • Energy, focus, and mental clarity

  • Body composition and optimal weight (the weight you feel most comfortable at!)

  • Mood and hormonal balance

  • Physical and athletic performance

Weight loss:

No number is seriously too big or too small. If you know a weight of shape you’ll feel most comfortable at, let’s get you there.

Diabetes: Type 1, Type 2, Gestational, hypoglycaemia

Managing blood sugars is about finding the right combinations of foods and the right environment which will leave us feeling consistently satisfied and energised.

Hormonal issues: Female hormones, thyroid issues, hypothalamic amenorrhea, PCOS, fertility problems

Hormones can wreak havoc on our physical, mental, and social wellbeing. Sorting through various nutritional and environmental elements which influence our hormonal systems can be majorly helpful for many of these conditions.

Digestive issues: IBS, IBD, coeliac disease, diverticulitis

Navigating food with digestive symptoms can be pain in the gut. I work with you through a personalised approach to get to the root of these issues.

Special diets:

Ancestral diets, elemental, keto or ketogenic, LCHF, low FODMAPs, paleo, SIBO-specific, SCD friendly.

Our Packages


Are you ready to cut the confusion and take your health to the next level?

One of our packages will be perfect for you. The ph360 personalised health platform provides us with comprehensive information on what you need to do to optimise your health right now.

Ph360 is not a DNA test. We’re looking at how your genes are being expressed today.

Your health test includes measures of your body, questions about your health history, genetic lineage, environment and lifestyle. Combining over 10,000 data points and using calculations which combine Western genetics and Traditional Chinese & Ayurvedic principles, your current state of health and corresponding health advice is calculated. In short, we look at your genes, how they are currently behaving, and guidance on what to do to put your genes in their optimal state.
