I think when I say to most people that I’m a nutritional therapist they’re not quite sure what I do. That’s okay, there is a lot of confusion about the difference between a nutritionist, a nutritional therapist and a dietician. The training is different and the ethos behind each one is slightly different.

I was in the supermarket the other day and I couldn’t help overhearing what a couple of women were talking about. And no, despite what people think I don’t check or judge what everyone has in their shopping trolley!

What a shame you miss out of the pleasure and all the nutrients an apple can offer
Amongst other things, I’m a Pilates teacher and I had an appointment with a friend for a session. She texted me to cancel as she was feeling very under the weather, a recurrent bout of labyrinthitis. No problem. I wished her well and said we would re book when she was better. I saw her the following day and she looked washed out and pale. I remarked on this and she said that she forced herself to come out because she couldn’t sit still, she felt guilty doing it.
