As a BANT Registered Nutritionist, certified NLP practitioner and functional medicine coach, Nigel provides personalised diet and lifestyle advice.  He also offers the Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment. Nigel has a passion for working with mental health, mood disorders, and chronic conditions, using a non-medical, nutritional approach. He also has a keen interest in improving athletic performance.


After many years working in construction and project management, Nigel decided upon a career change to follow his passion for nutrition and wellness. He studied at BCNH College of Nutrition and Health and at the University of Greenwich for four years, and then at CNELM (Centre for Nutrition Education and Lifestyle Management). He always engages in further professional development and is currently studying with the Institute of Functional Medicine (USA) and with the Centre for Integrative Sports Nutrition. Nigel has taken extensive continued educational training in numerous areas, including the interpretation of epigenetics and genetic polymorphisms and how these may influence health conditions and symptoms. 


Nigel is passionate about helping you feel better, have more energy, and increase your capacity for life's challenges (physical, mental, immunological etc.). He seeks to address your current health challenges in a sustainable way, creating the foundation for long-term benefits. He believes that there is an inextricable link between mind and body, and he brings a holistic/integrative approach to this through nutritional therapy. This can address concerns such as:

  • mood disorders
  • low energy or fatigue
  • poor motivation
  • poor focus or brain fog
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • low sex drive
  • sleep issues
  • appetite changes
  • food sensitivities
  • digestive problems
  • chronic fatigue
  • sports performance

Nutritional therapy is an integral part of functional medicine, which aims to find the root causes of your health problems. Dysfunction of our body systems often contributes to what we are experiencing, particularly with chronic symptoms. Nigel will investigate these root causes with you and put the puzzle pieces together from your symptoms, a thorough health history, and interpretation of any functional testing/genetics reports. He also offers a health assessment utilising a comprehensive blood test and can incorporate a lifestyle assessment using the Firstbeat assessment.


  • Optional free 30-minute discovery call
  • Complete health questionnaire and 3-day food diary
  • First session (90 minutes) – history taking and establishing goals. Initial diet and/or lifestyle advice.
  • Follow up session (45 mins, in 1-2 weeks) - develop recommendations including possible functional testing and/or supplements. Focus on next steps.
  • Fortnightly 30 min sessions: further updates and next steps, including feedback on tests, with an email check-in on alternate weeks.

Nigel will work with you at a pace that is manageable for you. His preferred approach is to work together for 3 months or more, as this provides a more successful outcome for clients in the longer term. However, sometimes people just may want a nudge in the right direction, with more limited advice and support, and Nigel is happy to do this too.

Being an integrative, complementary therapy, nutritional therapy, and functional medicine can work well alongside other complementary therapies as well as conventional medicine. Nigel is happy to work in collaboration with others, with your agreement, for your overall benefit and support.

Valerie Walker

Bsc. Dip.CAH. HPD, Dip. Hb(KG), Licensed Master NLP Practitioner.

Valerie has always had a fascination with the mind-body link, which she has explored over several years and now combines with her passion for helping others in her therapy work.   She is an experienced qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and holds a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma as well as being a Licensed Master practitioner of NLP. She is also a BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® Certified Practitioner. Valerie uses her experience and intuition to tailor her sessions to the individual needs of her client.

She is registered with a number of professional bodies including the Complimentary & National Healthcare Council (CNHC), which has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.  Valerie is also a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Association for Neuro Linguistic Programming (ANLP) and the International NLP Trainers Association (INLPTA).


Valerie has followed a diverse career path having initially qualified as a dietician then retrained as an accountant.  It was her interest in the mind-body link, together with her own struggle to manage her IBS, that led her to Hypnotherapy and NLP and she has been working as a therapist for several years now.    

Valerie is also a KG Hypnobirthing teacher and holds further diplomas in: The Shillaw Method of Associational Hypnosis; Experimental Hypnosis & Extra-Ordinary States; Trance & the Transformation of Identity and Covert and Conversational Hypnosis. She also holds a certificate in Okuden Level II Reiki.

In addition to running KG Hypnobirthing classes, Valerie regularly attends and leads NLP and Hypnotherapy practice groups. 


Hypnotherapy has been around for thousands of years, helping individuals manage issues and problems of mind, body and emotions. As a fully trained clinical hypnotherapist, Valerie will gently guide you to a state of deep relaxation, which will allow you to access your unconscious mind and to focus your attention on the areas that matter to you and the ones that you want to change.   

Hypnotherapy allows you to access your unconscious mind naturally and influence your thoughts, behaviours and responses in a way that will create lasting change.

As no two individuals are the same, what you experience while in a trance state will be unique to you.

Areas where Hypnotherapy can help include:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome 
  • Managing Chronic Pain
  • Menopausal Symptoms
  • Weight Management
  • Stop Smoking
  • Addictions and habits
  • Insomnia
  • Body Image
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Fears and Phobias
  • Stress Management
  • Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Coping with Change
  • Personal Development
  • Sports Performance


Have you ever wondered why you think the way you do or respond to situations in a certain way? Perhaps you realise that the way you respond to situations might not always be good for you or those around you and wish you could change it? 

NLP can give you the understanding, insight and ability to change both the way you think and how you respond to certain situations. 

It is a goal orientated and practical therapeutic approach to solving problems and issues, giving you the understanding of how to achieve change through effective coaching and the use of powerful NLP tools and techniques. It enables you to replace negative belief patterns and habits with much more positive ones, which in turn will generate change that not only you will notice, but those around you will too. 

NLP can help you respond more positively to whatever life throws at you. It will allow you to let go of negative thoughts and behaviours that are holding you back, give you the strength and courage you need to drive forward and achieve your goals, reduce stress and anxiety, manage chronic health conditions, enhance your relationships and much, much more.

All of which will lead you to a healthier, happier, fuller, and more successful life.


Valerie qualified in hypnobirthing through the KG Hypnobirthing course which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. 

KG hypnobirthing gives you the knowledge, understanding and tools you need to allow both you and your baby to have the best natural child birth experience possible. Through the course you will gain an understanding of the link between mind and body and how they can work in harmony throughout your pregnancy and birth, helping your body to give birth in the way it was naturally designed to do. Hypnobirthing will enable you to release any fears you may have and build confidence before and during birth. Working with your birth partner you will create a truly shared and loving experience that will allow your baby to arrive into a calm and relaxed environment, alert and ready to bond with you as nature intended.


‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. Like many other

modern therapies, it allows a core of privacy so that you do not have to divulge anything you would rather not talk about, in fact, the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead.

BWRT® is a completely new and different therapy based on the latest discoveries about the way the brain works and how it affects our moods, behaviour and emotions. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code.
