Our in house nutritionist

I’m Sally, Registered Nutritionist, speaker, and health writer.  I’ve worked in the natural health industry for over twenty years and am as passionate as ever about good nutrition and high-quality supplements.

I began my career working in a health food store in York, UK, in the late nineties.  And it’s a good job I did because at the time I was eating an awful diet! I was supposed to be a pescatarian, but was more of a “pastafarian”, living on white pasta and cheap cheese.  My diet was causing all kinds of health issues, from pre-menstrual tension and spots to low energy and anxiety.

Gradually, as I learnt more about natural health, I started changing what I ate. Over time my anxiety, energy levels, and skin improved, and the PMT virtually disappeared.  I was hooked – a complete convert to holistic health!

The store I worked in offered lots of training opportunities in herbal medicine, nutrition, and supplements.  After a few years I decided to take things further and study for a degree in Nutritional Medicine.  Once qualified, I set up a private nutritional therapy practice working with clients of all ages with a diverse range of health issues.

Alongside my private practice I spent several years as a columnist in the local paper and was part of the education team at a leading supplement company, writing training materials for other practitioners.  I also enjoy presenting talks and workshops for charities, corporate clients and health groups, and being a podcast guest.  Over the last few years, I have been working as the clinical lead on an MSc course in nutrition, training the next generation of nutrition practitioners.

In 2019 I put my private practice on hold to concentrate on finishing my first book, “Natural Nutrition for Perimenopause: What to eat to feel good and stay sane”, which came out in May 2021.  At long last the public conversation around perimenopause and menopause is opening up, and I firmly believe nutrition and lifestyle medicine needs to be part of it.

I am now thrilled to be working with Pura Collagen, who have created a truly exceptional range of collagen products.  The natural health industry is renowned for being innovative, and Pura Collagen are leading the way with their unique, high-quality supplements.  It’s an exciting time to be part of their team and see the difference the products make to people’s lives.
