Jacqueline believes our bodies have an innate intelligence, a natural wisdom that seeks balance and an optimal expression of health.
Her interest in health and nutrition began 30 years ago, working weekends in an independent wholefood store as she completed her business degree. On graduating she focused on a corporate career in aerospace and then the computer industry.
Leaving corporate life behind in 2000, she established a private counselling practice in St Albans whilst working as a coach for HR consulting group Penna. In 2005 she took a career break when she became a mother.
Alongside a traditional career path, Jacqueline trained in complementary therapies including massage, psychosynthesis therapeutic counselling, HeartMath and latterly naturopathic nutrition graduating with distinction.
Scientific research into the role of nutrition in health and wellbeing is a continuously evolving area and one of the reasons why it can be so confusing! Jacqueline continues to extend her professional knowledge and experience by regularly attending seminars and courses to understand the clinical relevance of the latest research. She’s completed the world-renowned Institute for Functional Medicine’s, Applied Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice programme and this informs her practice.
Jacqueline is a member of The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) – a professional body for Registered Nutrition Practitioner, is registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and is fully insured to practice.
