As a BANT Registered Nutritionist, certified NLP practitioner and functional medicine coach, Nigel provides personalised diet and lifestyle advice.  He also offers the Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment.

About Nigel

After many years working in construction and project management, Nigel decided upon a career change to follow his passion for nutrition and wellness. He studied at BCNH College of Nutrition and Health and at the University of Greenwich for four years, and then at CNELM (Centre for Nutrition Education and Lifestyle Management). He always engages in further professional development and is currently studying with the Institute of Functional Medicine (USA) and with the Centre for Integrative Sports Nutrition. Nigel has taken extensive continued educational training in numerous areas, including the interpretation of epigenetics and genetic polymorphisms and how these may influence health conditions and symptoms. 

Approach

Nigel is passionate about helping you feel better, have more energy, and increase your capacity for life's challenges (physical, mental, immunological etc.). He seeks to address your current health challenges in a sustainable way, creating the foundation for long-term benefits. He believes that there is an inextricable link between mind and body, and he brings a holistic/integrative approach to this through nutritional therapy. This can address concerns such as:

  • mood disorders
  • low energy or fatigue
  • poor motivation
  • poor focus or brain fog
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • low sex drive
  • sleep issues
  • appetite changes
  • food sensitivities
  • digestive problems
  • chronic fatigue
  • sports performance

Nutritional therapy is an integral part of functional medicine, which aims to find the root causes of your health problems. Dysfunction of our body systems often contributes to what we are experiencing, particularly with chronic symptoms. Nigel will investigate these root causes with you and put the puzzle pieces together from your symptoms, a thorough health history, and interpretation of any functional testing/genetics reports. He also offers a health assessment utilising a comprehensive blood test and can incorporate a lifestyle assessment using the Firstbeat assessment.

What to expect

  • Optional free 30-minute discovery call
  • Complete health questionnaire and 3-day food diary
  • First session (90 minutes) – history taking and establishing goals. Initial diet and/or lifestyle advice.
  • Follow up session (45 mins, in 1-2 weeks) - develop recommendations including possible functional testing and/or supplements. Focus on next steps.
  • Fortnightly 30 min sessions: further updates and next steps, including feedback on tests, with an email check-in on alternate weeks.

Nigel will work with you at a pace that is manageable for you. His preferred approach is to work together for 3 months or more, as this provides a more successful outcome for clients in the longer term. However, sometimes people just may want a nudge in the right direction, with more limited advice and support, and Nigel is happy to do this too.

Being an integrative, complementary therapy, nutritional therapy, and functional medicine can work well alongside other complementary therapies as well as conventional medicine. Nigel is happy to work in collaboration with others, with your agreement, for your overall benefit and support.
