BSc (Hons) Biology, MSc (Hons) Nutrition, Associate Nutritionist (ANutr)
Rebecca is an Associate Nutritionist, specialising in gut health and women's health, from hormone imbalance to fertility, pregnancy and beyond.
Her passion for nutrition sparked at university. The toll of studying and participation in the rowing club left her constantly tired, regularly getting sick, and with difficulty concentrating. She started to look at small changes to her lifestyle and nutrition, and these made a big difference.
This led her to learn more about the gut microbiome, and it's influence on everything from immune health, to sleep, stress, skin, digestive health and allergies. The more attention she paid to her gut health, the better she felt. After completing her Master's in Human Nutrition, she began helping more and more people understand how their gut could be the key to their overall wellbeing.
Recently, she has started working with women, to help them understand how gut health, diet and lifestyle can help balance hormones and increase the chances of fertility success. She also works with those who are already pregnant to ensure that their gut health, and the health of their developing baby is supported throughout each trimester and into the postnatal period.
Rebecca believes an individualised and patient centred approach is vital when supporting all aspects of health. Having first hand experience with the impact of an unbalanced gut, her approach is empathetic. Her goal is to empower patients to take control of their health and wellbeing. She has a keen interest in cooking and nutrition, and regularly posts gut healthy recipes on her Instagram account @healthygutkitchen.
