Health Advisor and Nutritionist - Katie Parsons

Katie Parsons

Katie Parsons Katie has always been fascinated by how food directly affects our physical and emotional wellness. This interest started when Katie began experimenting with her own diet, after years of digestive issues and getting tests with inconclusive results. It was at this time when she realised the power of diet on the overall function of our bodies.

With a background as a Mental Health Nurse, Katie decided to deepen her understanding of food and nutrition and went on to study Human Nutrition, gaining a Masters Degree in 2012. Katie worked in a hospital setting, both on a one to one basis and in group settings.

 

Katie’s passion lies in helping people gain confidence in their understanding of which foods work best for them and why. Katie is available for private nutrition consultations. Please enquire at the Wellness reception.
