Work With Me

I consulted Karen to address my low energy levels. She guided me in changing my habits and these small changes produced significant improvements. Following a comprehensive assessment, Karen managed to identify which foods were contributing to my dips in energy. Karen prepared a plan of action specific to me and my lifestyle, together with some strategies to help organise and implement my plan. I would recommend Karen without hesitation.


"I would highly recommend Karen. After struggling with digestion problems for 3 years I have seen immediate and remarkable improvement in my symptoms after only a couple of sessions.

Karen is very methodical in her approach, is clearly very knowledgeable in her subject area but is also very pragmatic about what can be achieved with today's busy and modern lifestyles. Wouldn't hesitate to encourage others to give Karen a try.



Personalised Health Programmes

Working together for a set time period is the best formula for success as a 'one-off' appointment is unlikely to help you make effective changes. I will create a customised programme for you, using the latest nutrition science knowledge. and tailored around your main aims and lifestyle.

Programmes usually run for about 12 weeks and offer different levels of support involving a combination of the following:

Nutritionist UK, Nutritional Therapist Yorkshire, Nutrition and Wellbeing Coach


  • Pre-analysis of health questionnaire and diet diary
  • Initial consultation - 90 minutes (face to face or via Skype/telephone)
  • Research and preparation of Personalised Health Plan (typically 3 hours work)
  • 2 follow-up consultations - 45 mins to 1 hour
  • Coaching calls/emails between sessions - if required
  • Evalulation of current medication and supplements interactions - if applicable
  • Supplement plan - where appropriate
  • Test recommendations - where appropriate.

Depending on your health aims and needs prices start from £225

Nutritionist UK, Nutritional Therapist Yorkshire, Nutrition and Wellbeing Coach

Are you eating as healthily as you think you are? A full dietary analysis can reveal where you need to make changes to improve your diet. You will be invited to complete a 5 or 7 day food diary which I will analyse. Feedback and advice will be given so that you can make improvements to your diet.

Accompanied Shopping and Kitchen Detox

Nutritionist UK, Nutritional Therapist Yorkshire, Nutrition and Wellbeing Coach

Do you find shopping for healthy food a chore? Many people want to buy food which will contribute to a healthier diet but find food labelling confusing and the choices open to them overwhelming. Please contact me for details of how I can accompany you and give you some great tips on how to optimise your wellbeing by making healthier choices. (available in some areas of North Yorkshire).

Group Talks and Workshops

One of my roles as a nutritionist is educating others about the benefits to health and wellbeing of making dietary and lifestyle changes. I offer a range of talks on a variety of health subjects to community groups, charities, schools and in the workplace. Please contact me for further details.

Cookery Tuition

Work With Me

Encouraging people to cook their own food from scratch is a vital part of making improvements to diet. I am aware that lack of confidence with food preparation and cookery is a factor which can prevent people from doing this.

One-to-one cookery tuition for individuals or families - to take place in your own home - can be arranged. Additionally, tuition for groups of adults or children can also be arranged. Please contact me for further details.


How Does It Work?

My Personalised Health Plan provides you with a combination of expert nutrition and lifestyle advice together with coaching support.

Consultations can take place in a variety of ways to suit busy lifestyles. You may wish to have a face-to-face consultation in:

  • Whitby
  • Kirkbymoorside
  • By videocall using Skype or similar software

Before the initial consultation I will ask you to fill in a Health Questionnaire and diet diary and return this to me ideally no later than 48 hours before your appointment.

Initial consultations
may last up to 90 minutes as we go through the following:

  • Recap and enlarge on the information in your Health Questionnaire, including family health history
  • Discuss your current concerns and health goals.
  • Talk about your current symptoms in more depth
  • Review your dietary habits, lifestyle, sleep and stress levels
  • Discuss the diet diary
  • Discuss any medication and supplements currently being taken

We will agree some initial health goals which will be tailored to suit your lifestyle, likes and dislikes and budget. If appropriate, functional tests and /or supplements may be recommended. You will be sent a summary of what we discuss and goals we have agreed within 72 hours of the consultation.

Follow-up consultations
These last for approximately 45 minutes and usually take place about 3-5 weeks after the first meeting - this may differ depending on your individual needs.

This is a time to catch up, discuss how things have been since the last session and adapt the health goals where necessary. In my experience, lasting changes to diet and lifestyle require a step-by-step approach and I will endeavour to support you along the way and adapt any Programme to what is manageable for you.

Plan lengths vary, depending on your health goals. Typically, 6-12 weeks is a reasonable time needed to begin to notice changes in health and how you are feeling. More complex health issues may need to be addressed over a longer period.
