How can I help you improve your health?

'' My objective is to build your nutritional toolbox in order to fuel productivity and energy levels at work as well as promote health, happiness and longevity in your everyday exploits in life.''

Following Matt's Undergrad degree in Sports & Exercise Science at the University of Birmingham, he spent a year studying Sports Nutrition with the Guruperformance Insititute. From there he went on to work at a professional rugby club as a Performance Nutritionist for 2 seasons. It was here early on in his career where he started to apply his nutritional knowledge toolbox in a demanding setting, translating science into practice and working with different individuals who shared a common goal of elite performance.

This great start drove Matt's nutritional curiosity further and urged him to look into further study to develop nutritional practice working with regular people looking to apply nutritional lifestyle changes to everyday life. So he moved to London and undertook three years of study in Nutritional Therapy at the College of Naturopathic Medicine.

Throughout his career so far he has come to realise that health is an on-going journey for all of us. Some may only need a few tweaks and a little guidance, whereas others may need a much more tailored approach. That’s where he comes in - he can support you as little or as much as you like.

What is Nutritional Therapy?

The foods you eat can have a fundamental impact on how your body functions and feels. Nutritional Therapy applies the science behind food to promote health, performance and wellbeing.

Your registered Nutritional Therapist will use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to your symptoms and health concerns. You will then receive a nutritional and lifestyle programme tailored specifically to you to help you achieve your health goals.

Nutritional Therapy is a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking to support their health.
