I am an award-winning Nutritional Therapist with nearly 20 years’ experience and a Senior Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher and Trainer, teaching since 2007. I have written many books, including my latest Good Mood Food, Yoga Therapy for Digestive Health and The De-Stress Effect. I give copies of whichever of these is most suitable with all consultations in my nutritional practice, to guide clients through as we investigate and explore their individual needs.
My consultation approach melds where mindfulness meets nutrition. I am passionate about helping people through stressful phases in their lives; when long-term stress, heavy emotional demands or a recent event show as exhaustion, feeling constantly wired or stress symptoms as body functions don’t quite feel in balance.
My yoga teaching reflects this too, with an emphasis on embodied awareness and slowing down to truly feel, to listen and respond to what we need, rather than punishing our bodies into an ideal.
I help people that I understand – those with busy lives and quick brains who often find it difficult to switch off.
Modern life and our ‘fixing and doing’ drive can be rewarding and motivate us to succeed but often leave us showing symptoms of poor health and with little energy, space and time for recovery. Rigorous scientific knowledge alongside an intuitive and realistic approach allows me to advise the best dietary and lifestyle changes to address your issues.
“Charlotte is a sympathetic teacher with a gift for passing on as much of her expertise as her pupils can manage. She is patient, intelligent, clear-sighted and dedicated to her subject. She runs a yoga class specifically designed for anyone needing de-stress and recovery and it’s proved a boon to me and others, helping us to return to health and exercise in a gentle and positive way. I recommend her very highly.”

“As a Yoga Teacher with experience of and an interest in working with trauma, I have long been searching for a dedicated space for reflective practice, community and sharing that is underpinned by a balance of thorough, intellectual, knowledge-based input alongside a skilfully held space for somatic exploration.
What a treat this course has been in ticking all of these boxes! It has also stimulated, inspired, rejuvenated and invigorated my passion for my work, given me confidence to continue in the direction that calls to me, and filled in my gaps in knowledge.
Charlotte is an extraordinary Teacher with a wealth of experience & sensitivity as well as significant depth and insight. She is a fountain of knowledge and I am extremely grateful for this invaluable and exceptional offering that she has shared with those of us on the course. I would recommend it to all Yoga Teachers.”
