Yvonne passionately believes in the healing power of nature and works with an integrative approach to healthcare which incorporates the whole person. Her work is about educating, guiding and empowering her clients – to tap into their own innate healing abilities.
She understands the importance of using organic foods – whole food supplementation and wild crafted herbs for health and rejuvenation – and how this also benefits the health of our planet. In order to spread the message, she offers: one to one consultations, talks, workshops and writes plans and articles.
Always keen to evolve her skills, she is a lifelong member of life extension which provides her with extensive knowledge on biochemistry and the absorption of nutrients. She regularly attends courses and lectures in order to learn and update her knowledge and has spent over 5 years working in the oldest health centres in Ireland, which she believes holds some of the most beneficial healing knowledge through body, mind and Soul. She is bound by the strict code of ethics of her professional body. She holds a certificate of distinction from the S.N.H.S (School of Natural Health Sciences), a diploma from the international institute of Coaching and Mentoring (L.C.H) and a Practitioner in life coaching and Allergy Testing qualification (British Institute for Allergy & Environmental Therapy).
In addition to Holistic Nutritional Therapy, she is fully qualified in the financial world holding ICSA and TEP qualifications, which has enabled her to demonstrate structure and guidance in building a great practice and structure in her health plans for her clients. In finance it is all about knowing your client and enhancing their wealth. For Yvonne, she is passionate about knowing her clients and enhancing their health. Yvonne has also completed major hiking challenges and is traveling to India to seek more knowledge on the natural ways of living through the Ayurveda life - an ancient medical system of India. It offers one of the fastest paths to health. Instead of having to guess which foods, supplements and behaviors are appropriate for you, there is a simple, direct prescriptive path that is developed for your unique body type, or dosha. This takes all the guesswork out of getting healthy. The benefits that occur are not only felt in your body – they are also seen in your mental and emotional wellbeing. She wants to bring much of this information to her long term clients.

Sharon H - Nutritional therapist, London
"When I went to see Yvonne it was my last hope. With a diagnosis of chronic fatigue lasting 20 years, I had tried so many therapies without any improvement. Yvonne was very understanding and so supportive - she was there every step of the way!
Over the following months I gradually began to feel better, the transformation being such that she inspired me to go on and study nutritional medicine. Today I practice as a nutritional therapist."
Henry G - Music Teacher, St Helier
"I was working with some fairly significant health challenges a few years back but the
knowledge and encouragement I received from Yvonne put me right back on track
and that is where I remain today."
Mary S - Fulltime Mother, Grouville, Jersey
"After 2 children and a stressful life schedule my hair began to thin so much so that I was becoming desperate. My doctor diagnosed low iron levels but the supplements made me feel sick. After several very informative sessions with Yvonne not only did my hair start to grow back, but my skin improved, my energy levels increased - plus I lost weight!"
Darren C - Triathlete, London
"I first decided to contact Yvonne after a few years of trial and error in trying to create my own health programme. Her knowledge and experience have opened me up to a whole new world.
I am a triathlete and a vegan so nutrition is very important to me. Without Yvonne I would not have achieved half of my goals, my performance times have all improved. I never could have done it without her!"
