Like many others who come into the profession, Lesley’s own health issues led her to explore nutritional therapy as a viable alternative to mainstream treatments. Having significantly benefitted from nutritional therapy herself, Lesley’s interest in the subject matter was ignited. Nutritional therapy allowed Lesley to take control of her issues and, after a ten year engineering career, she made the decision to retrain in order to practise and promote the development of nutritional therapy.
Lesley believes that sound nutrition is the foundation for optimum health. She promotes an integrated approach to healthcare and actively encourages the involvement of other healthcare and fitness providers when supporting her clients.
Lesley completed her training at the Natural Healthcare College in 2009 and has been providing individual consultations and workshops to various organisations ever since. Lesley is a course tutor for NHC’s Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy course. She also runs the nutrition workshops for FitFarms; the UK’s longest running fitness retreat.
