Registered Nutritional Therapist & Health Coach specialising in fixing wonky hormones, weight loss + fertility

Hello, I'm Ailsa...

My family tell me I've always been a bit over-interested (their words) in what goes in and what comes out. Fortunately, as a Registered Nutritional Therapist & Health Coach it's now my job to be interested in that kind of stuff.

I'd been a journalist forever. I did all those cliched media things – partying, drinking, smoking, eating junk – oblivious to what it was doing to my health. I thought I was invincible.

Slightly miraculously as it turned out, I had a baby and everything changed – but not for the right reasons. I was no longer super-human. My body had given up. Although I was overjoyed to be a mum, I was constantly exhausted, my joints ached, and I couldn't seem to shift the weight I'd gained however many hours I spent at the gym and whatever diet I tried. I thought, that's what happens when you have children, right? Turns out I was suffering from a hormone imbalance (or two). It seems the hormonal storm of having a baby had pushed me over the edge. That's when I was diagnosed with an auto-immune thyroid disorder. Since then, I've struggled to get pregnant, lost a child, been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, and suffered more than my fair share of ups and downs. Believe me, I know how it feels to be literally dragging yourself through the day.

In the midst of it all, I had a few REALLY bad days, which turned out not to be such a dreadful thing because they delivered the wake up call that encouraged me to make a lifestyle upgrade. I decided to make some pretty big changes to my diet, too. My journey back to wellness led me to retrain as a nutritional therapist and health coach at the highly-regarded Institute for Optimal Nutrition, where I graduated with distinction. What I learned there changed my life forever, and now it can transform yours.

Why I'm the best coach for you

I specialise in nutrition and coaching programmes for women with hormone imbalances, who want to lose weight and anyone wanting to get pregnant, either naturally or through IVF or other assisted cycles. I also help a variety of women who can’t put their finger on what’s wrong; they just know they should feel more vibrant or energised than they do.

I'm also a mum of three, so I know how hard it is to eat well while trying to juggle a busy life.

What sets me apart from other practitioners in the area is that I combine nutritional therapy (that's the science of what to eat) with health coaching to help you put that knowledge in to practice in a meaningful way – and keep you motivated to continue the good work.

I’m a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), registered with the Complementary & Healthcare Council (CNHC), and am one of a select number of Foresight practitioners, working with couples to enhance their fertility naturally. I am additionally a zest4life coach and mentor, and train other nutritionists to share their knowledge.
