About Susie

When both my parents got diagnosed with cancer, it was impossible to work out the right diets to follow with so much conflicting advice online so I decided I needed to properly inform myself and spent 4 exciting and informative years at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London, qualifying in 2016.

I knew I wanted to specialize in cancer; to support clients using good nutrition and lifestyle to help them prepare for treatment; alleviate side-effects during treatment and to speed up recovery and detox afterwards.

I spent a year specializing in cancer support, studying food and cancer with Dr Carol Granger, one of the UK’s leading cancer nutritional therapists and with Dr Nalini Chilkov, renowned integrative oncologist in the States (American Institute of Integrative Oncology) learning about combining conventional medicine with complementary or natural medicine – how they can work together in the cancer setting. I am also interested in female hormonal issues as unfortunately these days many can end up in a cancer diagnosis. It is never too early to work on prevention particularly if we are at higher risk with our family history.

After looking at your story, issues and any symptoms, we’ll make a plan together to get you on the right path. Nutritional therapy is a marathon, not a sprint so we take it slowly making small achievable changes without overwhelm; these changes may include diet, lifestyle, exercise plans, stress reduction and good sleep practices.

I believe we can benefit greatly from learning what we can do for ourselves, taking back some control -alleviating symptoms, enhancing treatment and living a healthier lifestyle beyond, reducing the risk of recurrence.

I work in collaboration with the oncology team, keeping them in the loop ensuring my client’s care is optimal on all levels.

With my background as a chef, I feel confident in the kitchen and like to come up with recipes and meal plans that are quick and easy to follow and stick to.

I volunteer with my local Cancer Support Group CSG06 helping cancer patients optimise their health during and after treatment and also The Mulberry Macmillan cancer support group presenting tailored nutrition webinars. My ultimate goal is to run a cancer retreat where patients can come and learn to cook, eat and live ‘anti-cancer’.

As a member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CHNC), you can trust that I keep up to date with the latest scientific research in health and nutrition.
