Hi, I’m Rebekah. As a qualified NHS mental health nurse, I have learned through personal and clinical experience that no amount of therapy or medication will work well without getting the right nutrition and enough sleep first.
If you’d like to know more about me and how I help women improve their mental health through nutrition and lifestyle medicine, click here
When life gets busy, the first thing we tend to do is ditch our healthy habits and routines. We know we shouldn't, but we feel we don't have time to eat well, exercise and get enough sleep. Before you know it, you are caught in the vicious cycle of stress and burnout.
Here are some common symptoms my clients often struggle with before we work together. Any of these sound familiar?
Feel tired all the time
Experience low mood and anxiety
Rely on stimulants such as caffeine, sugar, refined carbs or cigarettes to get you through the day
Weight gain especially around your middle
Struggle to switch off from work
Feel wired but tired at night
Spending hours scrolling through social media
Lack of energy or motivation to do things you used to enjoy?
If you answered YES to any of the above, my one to one programme will help you regain balance, feel energised and confident to enjoy life again
A UNIQUE APPROACH
I offer you the best of both worlds- traditionally trained mental health nurse and cutting edge functional nutritional therapist.
I am a Nurse and Nutritional Therapist on a mission to improve women's mental health through nutrition and lifestyle medicine. I want to make the process of change simple, fun and achievable.
Whilst working as a mental health nurse in the NHS, I learned it was challenging to help my patients without addressing their diet and lifestyle.
I have personal experienced of work-related stress and burnout. I used nutrition and lifestyle medicine to help me feel well again. I am eager to share my knowledge and use my combined expertise, to support and empower women struggling with their mental health to feel energised and confident again.
There are more options than just medication and talking therapies. Integrating these treatments with nutrition and lifestyle medicine provides a brand new approach to improving mental health.

Discover your unique health profile
I offer a range of functional tests from established private labs including Invivo, Cyrex, Functional DX and Regenerus Laboratories. This allows the most appropriate test to be selected.
Specific laboratory tests help us explore your unique biochemistry and find another piece of the puzzle. Nutritional deficiencies, digestive issues and hormone imbalances are some of the root causes associated with low mood and anxiety.
