About Eleanor

Hello, my name is Eleanor, welcome to my Nutritional Therapy website.

I am a degree qualified Registered Nutritional Therapist. I first trained with the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London, before completing a BSc in Nutritional Medicine at The University of West London. Both courses taught the Functional Medicine model, which looks to optimise health and a state of wellness by addressing the upstream root causes of illness, rather than simply managing downstream symptoms.

These root causes are often found embedded in people’s lifestyle choices, and in fact changing lifestyle behaviours can sometimes be the single most effective therapy in medicine, yet these are largely ignored, rarely investigated or even acknowledged, and often deemed to be lacking an evidence base.

Whilst this was true in the past, due to the challenge of obtaining funding for the type of research that didn’t have profit potential for a patented drug, the tide is now turning.  The power of NUTRIENTS and how the body uses them is being recognised, aided by the vastly superior functional testing that is evolving, allowing practitioners to thoroughly investigate a person’s health status or to signpost as yet undiagnosed health issues, that may be contributing to their symptoms.

After ten years of clinical practice, I support a range of clients who are either referred by medical practitioners or come to me direct. I have a special interest in gut health, digestion, autoimmunity, gluten sensitivities and pre-conceptual health/fertility, and I believe in a philosophy of shared education.  What I learn, I like to pass on.  Understanding generates empowerment and is more likely to induce long-term changes in lifestyle and therefore better health.
