"I use evidence-based nutrition advice, constantly learning through professional education and research. With over 20 years cooking and nutrition experience, I combine a scientific approach with a real understanding of food. Often I’m described as ‘a woman’s Jamie Oliver with nutrition science thrown in‘! You can expect meals that are easy to prepare, taste fantastic and are rich with nutritional benefit".

I was diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of six, I spent much of my childhood having very toxic treatments which only suppressed the symptoms. From an early age I instinctively knew there was a connection between food and health but it wasn’t until I was an adult that I resolved to go on a journey to heal myself. Through trial and error I have found a path that means that although psoriasis is not curable I have learnt to manage it so that for over 10 years my skin has been clear, something I thought would never be possible.
I have always known that what you eat and the life choices you make are key. Being truly well demands effort and being true to yourself, it’s not always an easy path but when you see your health improve and your skin heal it can be such an empowering experience. A few simple changes to your diet can make a huge difference. One thing I have become passionate about because of its transformative effects is the healing power of fermented food and the extraordinary impact it has on restoring your gut microbiome.
It’s important to remember that no two people are alike, what works for one person may not work for another this is just a guide to what I have found helpful.
Taking care of myself has never been more fun and delicious and it’s this information that I want to share with you.
With huge gratitude - Tiffany
Like many others who come into the profession, Lesley’s own health issues led her to explore nutritional therapy as a viable alternative to mainstream treatments. Having significantly benefitted from nutritional therapy herself, Lesley’s interest in the subject matter was ignited. Nutritional therapy allowed Lesley to take control of her issues and, after a ten year engineering career, she made the decision to retrain in order to practise and promote the development of nutritional therapy.
Lesley believes that sound nutrition is the foundation for optimum health. She promotes an integrated approach to healthcare and actively encourages the involvement of other healthcare and fitness providers when supporting her clients.
Lesley completed her training at the Natural Healthcare College in 2009 and has been providing individual consultations and workshops to various organisations ever since. Lesley is a course tutor for NHC’s Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy course. She also runs the nutrition workshops for FitFarms; the UK’s longest running fitness retreat.
