I had been in the fashion industry for 20+ years and always felt there was a deeper and more meaningful aspect to life. This prompted me to embark on learning and understanding about nutrition and the effects that it has on the mind, body and spirit. The stresses of modern life, which I experienced in my previous role, have motivated me to support people holistically through naturopathy and nutrition. I am passionate about helping people take control of their health and wellbeing.

Kate is a BANT registered Nutritionist who owns and runs the Edinburgh Clinic of Nutrition. She trained for three and a half years at Patrick Holford's renowned Institute of Optimum Nutrition in London and is currently studying with The Institute of Functional Medicine in the US.

Kate has become a specialist in digestive disorders, hormone balance and is also a Metabolic Balance Weight Loss Coach. 

Nutritional Therapy is a personalised, evidence-based way of improving your health by making dietary changes.  It is an integral part of Functional Medicine, which aims to find the root causes of an individual’s health symptoms and applies a nutrition-based plan of action to support the body’s natural healing process.

Nutritional Therapy can help health issues such as:

      •    digestive problems

      •    low energy

      •    food intolerances

      •    weight management

      •    inflammatory disorders

      •    hormone-related problems

During a consultation Kate will:

  +    Consider your individual case history

  +    Create a dietary plan to suit your lifestyle and health needs

  +    Provide meal ideas and recipes

  +    May offer supplement recommendations

  +    Can advise on Functional Medicine testing


This is one of the core principles of a Functional Medicine approach to healthcare.

Kate uses a wide array of tests from leading medical laboratories in UK and US, including:

  •    stool analysis (microbiome assessment)

  •    SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)

  •    stress hormones (cortisol and DHEA)

  •    full thyroid screen

  •    genetic profiling

  •    nutrient levels

  •    oxidative stress

  •    vitamin and mineral status

  •    menstrual cycle hormones testing

  •    food intolerances/allergies


Kate has run clinics in London and Edinburgh, and frequently presents at both corporate and community level.  Topics can be tailored to your needs, examples include:

  +    energy boosting lunches

  +    achieving a healthy weight

  +    stress and sleep management

  +    cardiovascular health

  +    healthy ageing

  +    optimising brain power

“Kate has been a great help in educating me in how I can make a real difference to my health through my diet. I’m feeling such a greater sense of well-being and highly recommend her.”
