Hello! I’m Lottie Williams, a registered Nutritional Therapist practising in London and Surrey. Simply put, I work with my clients to help them feel better, using diet and lifestyle changes.
Food and health have always been two big focuses of mine, long before I started training in nutrition. I’ve been a keen cook since childhood and worked in healthcare for all my career. It didn’t occur to me that I could combine these two interests until my partner and I were hit with health problems.
A few years ago, my partner was diagnosed with a series of serious illnesses. The NHS did a truly fantastic job of patching him up and getting him back on the road of recovery. And then we found that making changes to our diet really helped him to start to feel ‘well’ again.
At the same time, I was the typical mid-twenties stressed London office worker. Long hours, too much caffeine, sugar and alcohol had left me feeling exhausted, anxious and depressed. When I made the diet and lifestyle changes alongside my partner I started feeling ‘like me again’. This was what led me to nutritional therapy. What followed was three years of intensive studies, encompassing lectures and 200 hours of supervised clinical practice.
I’ve seen how profoundly changes in diet and lifestyle can affect all of us, whether it’s that niggling feeling that you just don’t feel as good as you used to, or more significant medical problems.
