About Libby at The Surrey Centre for Nutrition

About

Surrey and London based nutritional therapist offering nutritional therapy based upon the functional medicine model from her clinic location in Guildford, Surrey, London, and internationally via telephone and online.

Hi I'm Libby, I am a nutritional therapist and functional medicine practitioner.

Having graduated from the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition in 2013 with a Distinction and the prestigious Ian Marber (Food Doctor) award, I have over seven years experience working in clinical nutrition, utilising a functional medicine approach to identify the true underlying cause of my clients health concerns.

My journey into the world of nutrition all began when my own health challenges led me to research nutritional and natural approaches to wellness. Having gone through the conventional medicine system with no real answers, I, like you decided that the answer was to be found in food and nutrition.

Due to my own and my family's experience of autoimmunity and chronic illness I made the decision to focus all of my attention on, and pour all of my passion into providing a lasting transformative experience for those experiencing chronic health and autoimmune disease.

I know what it is like to search endlessly for the answers, and I also know that with the right approach it really is possible to regain health.

My focus is helping people who have been struggling with chronic disease and poor health, including WEIGHT GAIN and difficult WEIGHT LOSS, DIGESTIVE DISORDERS and poor GUT HEALTH including IBS, FOOD ALLERGY, INTOLERANCE and sensitivity, and AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE to regain a life of wellness by identifying the root cause of their symptoms and applying a functional and environmental medicine approach to nutrition. 



Are you ready to take control of your health, and enable yourself to live the life that you wish?

My approach is always scientific, systematic, and tailored to the individual. I find the answers where many may not.

Here's how we can work together;
1. You can apply to join my upcoming 12 week 'Calming Autoimmunity' program designed specifically for people wanting to learn and implement the fundamental dietary and lifestyle approaches to autoimmunity and chronic illness. You can apply to join the program HERE.

About Nutritional Therapy

The basis of Nutritional Therapy
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a 'one size fits all' approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with 'red flag' signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client's care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
