Core Values

Safety

I qualified in a 3-year course in Clinical Nutrition and Biomedicine at the London College of Naturopathic Medicine.


I'm fully registered with the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council


This means I'm regulated by the code of ethics set by the UK Professional Standards Authority, and I continuously train to make sure my knowledge stays safe, accurate, and up to date.

Personalisation

We're all unique, genetically, physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. 


In today's forest of health information, I'm trained to help you find and understand what's relevant for you.

Freedom

I aim to optimise food choices, or find the best easy alternatives. I don't believe in cutting food groups unless it's medically necessary. 


I help clients make better food decisions over the long term to fully enjoy their relationship with food and never feel deprived.

Empathy

I've suffered many of the conditions and symptoms that are now my areas of special interest so you can expect empathy, support and compassion from me. 


I know exactly what it's like to have multiple strands of symptoms with no clear explanation.

What I can help with

Anxiety

Depression and low mood

Sleep onset insomnia

Sleep maintenance insomnia

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Imagine falling asleep easily each night and waking up refreshed.


Imagine not having to worry about your food triggering pain, gas, or bloating. 


Imagine the time you'd save not having to Google symptoms and 'cures' for your unique health issues.


Imagine not having to guess what to add or take away from your daily routine.


Imagine a calmer, more confident and creative you at work, with friends, and at home.


Imagine if you knew exactly how to keep all of this up.

Jane knows her stuff. I have seen so many improvements, especially at work and in my sleep quality. She was so supportive and motivating and it's easy to open up to her. She really cares.


AS, 39, London

After 2 months of working with Jane, my night sweats and crazy dreams have stopped and I am sleeping so well. I bloat less and don’t get the urge to have so many sweet things. I get how these were related to what I was putting in my mouth and when, and my lifestyle. Things just seem easier now. I made the right choice to go to her. Highly recommended.

My doctor was impressed at how far I've come since Jane advised me. She asked me what I was doing! I follow Jane's plan and I am eating the right foods and taking the right supplements now. She even showed me the right exercises to do. She is a blessing for me because I am not suffering now.

My Story


My path to becoming a nutritional therapist began after my own chronic illnesses meant I had to learn about nutrition. 


I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) at just 11 years old. As a typical type A personality, I pushed myself beyond my limits to get into the secondary school I wanted.


Stress and food-induced IBS attacks would bloat me to the point where I couldn’t breathe properly in my school uniform. School days were often filled with dense brain fog, fatigue and narcoleptic moments.


For the next 10 years, I was in and out of the doctor’s office almost every fortnight, prescribed daily antispasmodics and laxatives for IBS, and daily antibiotics for my acne. These only seemed to mask the symptoms and make the situation worse.



Burnout


My anxiety and exhaustion worsened at university but I pushed myself even harder as the daughter of working-class immigrants chasing grades in elite Russell Group and Ivy League institutions.


I ate foods that were seen as nutritious, but I wasn't sure exactly what I needed, or needed to avoid, and in what amounts.


At the peak of my burnout, I felt completely overloaded at a fast-paced 9-6 target-driven job, which coincided with personal heartbreak. My thick hair began to shed rapidly, my periods were irregular and painful, and I developed palpitations and insomnia. I was diagnosed with anxiety and mild depression disorder, iron deficiency anaemia, and polycystic ovaries.



Change


As I interned at The Hollywood Reporter in Los Angeles in 2012, I lived in the heart of the modern ‘health consciousness’ trend. I seemed to run into a health store almost every five minutes there. I was inspired and started to do amateur research on the raw vegan diet, chia, spirulina, and other popular superfoods and exclusion diets taking off. 


I experimented on myself. Some things really worked for me, some definitely did not. I really wanted to know how and why.


Years later, I decided to study a 3-year course in Clinical Nutrition and Biomedicine at the London College of Naturopathic Medicine to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I started putting what I learned into practice and began to identify popular nutrition myths, fads, and truths.


With tailored food guides, genetic and functional testing that would inform a temporary supplement regime, and other evidence-backed lifestyle therapies, I managed to transform my situation. 



Today


I can sleep well.
My periods are regular and pain-free.
My palpitations have stopped.
I enjoy my food without worrying about an IBS flare-up.
My skin has obvious scars but it's now clear and acne-free.
My hair has stopped falling out in clumps and has grown back.
My doctor has taken me off all prescriptions.


Most importantly for me, I'm happier, calmer, and more confident in my choices and in myself, and the shift has truly impacted my relationships and creativity for the better.


My recovery wasn't quick, easy, or cheap, but finally choosing to invest in my health and committing to making nutrition work for me has changed the course of my life for the better. My only regret now is that I didn't turn to nutritional therapy sooner.


I’m now committed to helping others experience the value in tweaking simple every day choices to achieve the health transformation they’ve always wanted.

Ready for change?

I'd love to help you.
