My story

I first became interested in nutrition after experiencing my own health problems. I found a Nutritional therapist in Manchester who gave me the guidance and support I needed. She helped me address the root cause of my symptoms. Nutritional therapy re-balanced my life and restored my health! The whole experience gave me a new understanding about the importance of nutrition and lifestyle medicine. There is a powerful connection between food and our wellness. A good diet and lifestyle can have an incredible impact on your health. This is what inspired me to qualify as a Nutritional Therapist. 

My path to better health

I trained for three years in Manchester, studying biochemistry, naturopathic nutrition and health coaching. Beyond nutrition and health coaching, my commitment to holistic health has led me to explore mindfulness meditation and also a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Through specialised training, I’ve honed these skills to assist people in overcoming challenges. This unique blend of nutrition and mind-body techniques allows for a comprehensive and personalised approach to wellness. The incredible transformations I’ve witnessed in my clients increases my passion for spreading the word about the power of nutrition for healthier, happier future!

 Nutritionist & Nutritional Therapy FAQ's 

What does a nutritionist do?

A Nutritionist advises people on what to eat for a healthy lifestyle, or achieve a specific health-related goal such as weight loss. Nutritional therapy is an evidence-based approach often used for improving lifestyle, preventing or managing diseases, and minimising symptoms. Engaging a nutritionist can be highly beneficial, especially if you have specific health goals or concerns. A skilled nutritionist can provide you with personalised guidance, evidence-based recommendations, and ongoing support to help you achieve and maintain your desired health outcomes.


What is nutritional therapy?

Nutritional therapists take a holistic approach to the body and apply the latest research in nutrition and health sciences to you and your symptoms and they create a diet, lifestyle and (sometimes) supplement plan to support those needs. They often bring in some health coaching to help you put the ideas into practice in a meaningful way, or break through any barriers that have held you back the past. Nutritional therapy can offer valuable insights into dietary strategies, lifestyle adjustments, and practical tips tailored to your unique needs, making the investment in a nutritionist a valuable step towards optimising your health and well-being.

What are the benefits of nutritional therapy?

Nutritional therapists and nutritionists use a personalised approach. They take a clients preferences into account and formulate nourishing meal ideas and recipes. Nutritionists can also identify nutritional deficiencies, and aim to improve health using nutrition and lifestyle medicine.

Can a nutritionist help you lose weight?

Yes, a qualified nutritionist can play a significant role in assisting with weight loss. By providing personalised guidance on balanced nutrition, portion control, and lifestyle adjustments, a nutritionist can help you develop sustainable habits that support your weight loss goals. They can also offer evidence-based insights on effective dietary approaches and provide ongoing support to help you achieve and maintain a healthier weight. Lisa has helped many people in Manchester and all over the UK lose weight, with an evidence-based nutrition programme and ongoing support.

What is the difference between a dietician and a nutritionist in the UK?

In the UK, a key distinction between a dietitian and a nutritionist lies in their qualifications and the scope of their practice. Dietitians are specialist health professionals, often working in clinical settings such as hospitals, and are equipped to provide medical nutrition advice for various health conditions. On the other hand, nutritionists and registered or accredited nutritional therapists have typically studied for at least 3 years, and are typically focused on using a holistic or naturopathic approach for promoting general health through nutrition, often in non-clinical settings. 

When should I see a nutritionist?

You should consider consulting a nutritionist if you're seeking guidance on specific health goals, experiencing digestive issues, aiming for weight management, dealing with hormonal imbalances, or aiming to improve overall well-being. Additionally, if you're looking to optimise your diet, address food sensitivities, or require personalised nutrition advice tailored to your lifestyle, a nutritionist can provide valuable support and evidence-based nutritional therapy recommendations to help you achieve your desired health outcomes. Lisa is based in Manchester and offers a free online health review, so distance is no barrier to achieving your goals.
