In addition to being programme leader Anne also supervises clinical practice and teaches on both years of the course. She has been instrumental in guiding a significant amount of course development since re-accreditation in 2013 and is external examiner for one other Nutritional Therapy course. Anne is currently undertaking her PGCHE at the University of Middlesex, which is due completion in January 2016.

Angela gained her Bachelors degree in the late seventies and spent the first few years of her working life in sales and business development roles for a number of blue-chip pharmaceutical companies. However, following the birth of her two daughters, she focused on a part-time career in teaching in Adult Education.

The late nineties were a major turning point for Angela. Her venture into the world of nutrition came soon after discovering that small changes to her diet yielded far-reaching benefits to her own health issues. Wishing to help others explore the benefits of nutritional therapy, Angela undertook the 3 year course at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition. Since qualifying in 2001, she has been running a successful, busy nutritional therapy and functional medicine practice from two clinics in north Cheshire.

Her main client base includes those seeking support for digestive issues and various hormonal concerns, including thyroid and adrenal issues, fertility problems, as well as those with more complex conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome.

Angela has continued her interest in the educational world and has secured a number of clinical and academic roles with some of the main Nutritional Therapy training providers. She is currently engaged on the MSc/PGDip Nutritional Therapy course at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York, where she teaches on a regular basis and was instrumental in the reorganisation of the training clinic and the re-writing of its clinical paperwork and procedures. In the past she has also been an external examiner for one of the other nutritional therapy trainers.

More recently, she has been involved in in-depth research into the complexities of nutrigenomic testing and has found this invaluable in helping to further personalise her clients’ health and nutrition programmes. Recognising the need for good quality, robust training for practitioners in the interpretation of nutrigenomic tests, she and Anne have spent the last 12 months developing short courses to help address this need.
