I am a fully insured and registered practitioner with the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (ANP) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

Working together for a set time period is the best formula for success as a 'one-off' appointment is unlikely to help you make effective changes. I am 100% committed to helping you achieve your best possible results and in return, I ask for COMMITMENT
I use testing to assess the GIT tract therefore each client can see for themselves what’s happening on the inside of their body and what may be the connection with presenting symptoms, so we can get to the root problem.
I am based in North Staffordshire. Consultations are conducted either by phone or video conference (via WhatsApp) or in person.
Yes, Lots of nutrition professionals offer dietary support and advice online and over the phone, and this can be beneficial for clients who cannot attend face-to-face sessions
A nutritional therapist assesses a person’s nutritional needs to achieve optimal physiological function. This means the maintenance of homeostasis, a position of wellbeing we all seek, but many fail to achieve. Nutritional therapy is not a one pill wonder: it is a change in lifestyle to bring your body back to optimum health. Although you may see some immediate improvements it can take the body time to come back into balance.
It’s important to remember that nutritional therapy is not intended as a substitute for medical advice and if a practitioner identifies any 'red flag' symptoms indicative of a serious health issue, they will refer clients on to an appropriate medical professional.
During your initial consultation we focus on:
MYMOP FORM – Measure Yourself Medical Outcome Profile, where we assess your main symptoms
We look at – Previous medical history, Prescription medications – past and present, Herbal and natural supplement, Family history. We dig deeper into our body systems – such as gastrointestinal tract, nervous system, endocrine function, reproductive systems, allergies and immunity, respiratory tract, urinary tract, cardiovascular system, musculo-skeletal system, skin. We discuss food intake.
We discuss compliance with the initial plan and achievements, successes, challenges and how we can move forward.
The initial consultation is £70. Follow up consultations are £40. Or there is an option of buying a package for £120 (this includes 1 x initial consultation and 2 x follow ups) The package option is the most popular and is also the most successful in helping clients attain their desirable results. The package can be spread over 6 months which helps motivate clients to become committed to new lifestyle changes and achieving long term results.
Alternatively, I am available for one off, 30 minute consultations (cost £30) Please follow the link on the homepage for the 'free consultation'
There is no specific quantity or rule on how many consultations you will need. This will depend very much on your personal circumstances and what your health objectives are. Clients ask for advice at different stages of their life for different problems.
It is advisable to have specific test done because this will help us to dig deeper into your health concern and eliminates any guess work in our nutritional protocol. Testing show us what’s going on internally, and we can target specific areas. These functional tests are comprehensive and provide great overview how our body works. Certain, more simple tests can be done through you GP such as assessment of vitamin D status, Ferritin levels etc.

"When I came to see Martina for nutritional advice, I was keen to eat food to help my eye condition and to lose some weight. Martina was wonderfully helpful, without being pushy, which was refreshing and I felt I could manage many of her suggestions. I have made a pleasing and gradual loss of weight, and most importantly there has been some improvement in my vision due to eating kale, spinach, sweetcorn and red peppers amongst other food stuffs. Overall I am feeling much healthier. Thank you again, Susie"
"I went to see Martina to help with dry skin and low back pain following menopause. Martina is very thorough during consultations to ensure she provides the most appropriate advice for you. We are all different so this initial consultation is very important. Martina is friendly, reassuring and knowledgeable and I have no hesitation is recommending her to anyone wishing to address physical discomfort using natural/nutritional means."
