Emily graduated from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London with distinction. She has a particular interest in auto-immunity, female hormones and digestive issues and her practice is informed by having a teenage son who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of four. She practices from her clinic in West Oxfordshire as well as provides video consultations via our secure telehealth system.
A Registered Nutritional Therapist, Emily has worked with clients suffering from a wide range of conditions from auto-immune conditions (there are more than 80), to fibromyalgia and migraine, but particularly enjoys helping tired, stressed and menopausal women recover their health and zest for life. Her natural curiosity and appetite for research, honed by nearly three decades working as a journalist for national newspapers and magazines, mean that she works hard to uncover the root causes of symptoms. She uses an evidence-based approach in order to best support people’s health. Emily strongly believes that there are so many factors potentially affecting an individual’s health – from genes to environment, down to the way we breathe – that any protocol must be personally tailored to have the best chance of being effective.
Emily is married and lives with her three teenage children in Oxfordshire. She trained as a cook at the Grange Cookery School and years of cooking daily family meals mean that she is well versed in the art of feeding occasionally difficult children. She also grows her own vegetables and fruit, practices yoga and loves wild swimming and walking in the Highlands.
She read French and Spanish at Magdalen College, Oxford.
