Nutritional Supplements:

Practitioner only products will only be prescribed following a consultation or where a re-supply is required. I choose to prescribe practitioner only products to ensure the highest quality supplement is used in your treatment plan.

Continuing Professional Education:

I am passionate about keeping my knowledge up to date which is important given the rate at which nutrition science is changing and developing.
