Hi, I’m Sophie - a BANT registered Nutritional Therapist who helps clients to balance their hormones, improve their gut health and boost their brain/mental health
I’ve always been fascinated by the human body, which led me to study Physiology & Psychology at university
But for years, my passion for science faded into the background while I pursued a career in finance.
During this time, I was constantly tired, felt run down, and struggled with my weight. Part of the problem was my lifestyle - I was eating poorly, drinking alcohol, sleeping badly and travelling a lot. It wasn’t a sustainable lifestyle, especially as I wanted to start a family.
Moving abroad was my catalyst for change
Moving abroad and enjoying a slower pace of life gave me the space and courage to study for an MSc in Personalised Nutrition. I’m originally from Guernsey and now live in the mountains in France with my husband and two children.
I’m big on science (even more than most Nutritional Therapists)
As a Nutritional Therapist, everything I do is evidence-based. I’m a scientific researcher, educator and therapist, all rolled into one. It’s the perfect fit for someone who loves taking a deep dive into how the human body works!
Within that, there are specific areas that fascinate me and have prompted me to do a lot of research.
Gut health & hormones
I’ve done a lot of research into gut health, hormones and pregnancy, largely inspired by my family’s health stories.
I experienced pregnancy complications in the form of obstetric cholestasis, and the subsequent removal of my gallbladder (due to sludge and bilirubin gallstones).
And my youngest daughter has struggled with food sensitivities since she was just a few months old.
The gut-brain connection
I’ve also spent many hours researching the link between gut dysbiosis and Parkinson’s Disease, as well as mental health disorders such as depression.
I've even become a published researcher in the Brain Health journal (September 2021 issue) with The link between the gut microbiota and Parkinson’s Disease: A systematic mechanism review with focus on α-synuclein transport.
Together, we can get your body back into balance
Working with me means you can find answers to why you have symptoms, understand how your body/ physiology has been contributing to these symptoms and learn how to eat to feel better.
The human body may be complex and unique but my passion for science has repeatedly shown me that even the smallest changes to nutrition and lifestyle can significantly improve your quality of life.
I’m so thrilled when clients tell me that I’ve transformed the way they’re eating and that they’ve fallen in love with the therapeutic effects of eating nutrient-dense foods that nourish and heal.
I’m a registered nutritional therapist specialising in hormones, gut health and brain health.
