Hi. I’m Thalia. I’m a registered nutritional therapist. I’m 43 and a mum of two little boys. I love my life and feel great (as long as my sons let me sleep..!)
But that has not always been true. My late teens and twenties were dogged with ill health. Glandular fever at 17 led to years of fatigue, constant infections, acute anxiety and the fear that this was how I’d feel forever.
I turned my health around with the support of a nutritional therapist – and so can you. The change in my health initiated by that nutritionist was life-altering for me. I felt well! It was amazing. Fast forward ten years and a successful career as a TV presenter and I decided that I was ready for a new challenge. I wanted to use my passion for nutrition to help others.
In 2005 I was offered a place at the renowned Institute of Nutrition (ION) in London. I graduated as a nutritional therapist in 2009.
ION has accreditation from the Nutritional Therapy Council (NTC) which sets standards of training and education that meet the National Occupational Standards for Nutritional Therapy. I am a member of BANT (the British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine). They are the professional body for Registered Nutrition Practitioners. I am also a member of the CNCH (the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority, the regulatory body that assures standards of practice in all areas of healthcare.
My acceptance by these professional bodies is dependent upon my continued professional development.
