Emma also co-founded the successful independent health magazine, Walnut, which she publishes with her husband.
My journey with health began in childhood, with persistent eczema, followed by migraines and an autoimmune condition that developed during my teens and twenties. It became clear that what I ate had an impact on how I felt, and the beneficial changes I made to my diet led to profound health and symptom improvements. Spurred on by this, I completed a diploma and a degree in nutritional medicine, which both deepened my knowledge and enabled me to help others looking for a more natural way to connect to their health and manage their health conditions.
After 10 happy years working as a nutritional therapist, I still see a limited number of clients for in-depth online nutritional therapy, working in specialist areas of health. I have also now qualified as an Energy Medicine practitioner, a practice rooted in Chinese medicine that works with the nine energy systems of the body to restore health and balance. In my in-person sessions I combine this energy work with some nutritional guidance, which can bring about powerful changes in health, both physically and emotionally.
I'm very lucky to live in a beautiful part of the country, near to the coast in south Devon, and I love getting out in nature to enjoy the scenery, beaches, creativity and wonderful food this area brings. When I'm not out and about, I can often be found in my kitchen! I am a real foodie, I love cooking and creating delicious and healthy recipes for my family, friends and clients. My love of health and food, along with my husband's talent as a graphic designer, saw us set up an independent magazine called Walnut several years ago. Walnut celebrates and promotes healthy living, healthy eating and all the wonderful ethical food producers and natural health pioneers trying to do things differently.
I regularly attend further training courses to keep my knowledge and skills up to date. I am a member of the professional bodies BANT, NTC, CHNC and fully covered by insurance.
