Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner
Do you feel like crap?
Do you feel deflated and fed up with tests showing there’s nothing wrong?
Do you feel like you’ve tried everything but still don’t feel great?
Are you desperate for answers?
The first piece of good news is you’re not alone. As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, I see many people like you – and I’ve been where you are.
I was exhausted and stressed out. I suffered from bloating, weight gain, high cholesterol, iron deficiency and inflammation. I had so many symptoms. To say I was at my wit’s end is an understatement. I knew how I felt but doctors and specialists kept telling me nothing was wrong. This was because tests kept coming back saying everything was ‘within normal range’.
Eventually, they diagnosed me with Hashimoto’s Disease. They put me on meds for it but I kept getting symptoms. I just wanted to feel better! So I understand how frustrated you’re feeling. Find out more about my story here.
How I Can Help You
I’m a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Certified Autoimmune Protocol Coach.
It’s a mouthful, right? In simpler terms, it means I’ll be your personal health coach. I’ll support you on your journey from chronic and mystery illness to health and wellness. I want to empower you so you can take control of your health and feel better.
Are you always sluggish or want to improve your digestion? Do you have a thyroid or other autoimmune condition? Have you been considering the Autoimmune Protocol to help reduce your inflammation and flare-ups? Or are you interested in examining what internal imbalances are limiting you from regaining your health? Maybe you just want to feel better than you do at the moment? I can help you find answers. I can help you get on the road to living a happy life again. I don’t want you to only survive day by day, I want you to thrive!
Symptoms can be very common…but that doesn’t mean they’re normal.
- Weight gain/inability to lose weight
- Fluid retention
- Poor sleep
- Night sweats
- Decreased libido
- Sick all the time (poor immunity)
- Intense cravings for salt/sugar
- Inability to gain or maintain muscle
- Joint aches
- Difficult to wake in the morning and get going
- Digestive issues (bloated, puffy, gassy)
Think of these symptoms as a signal that something in your body isn’t right. Your body has fallen out of balance or “homeostasis”.
Listening to Your Body
Your body is amazing and complex. It also has an innate ability to heal itself. You just need to find the root cause of your symptoms and then help your body regain its balance. That’s where I come in. As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, I’ll bridge the gap between nutrition and medicine. I’ll guide you through the latest functional lab testing to identify and correct the underlying causes that lead to many common health complaints.
My aim is not to diagnose and treat disease, but to help identify the root causes of the imbalances in your body and correct these.
I’ll also construct a program you can follow that will lead you back to good health. But more than that – I’ll be your partner through the process. I’ve been there. I get how awful you feel and how frustrated you are. I also know how good it is to come out the other side. I want you to feel that too. You just need to listen to your body and hear what it’s telling you. I can help you do that.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been feeling unwell. Everyone’s story is different and it’s never too late to start.

What clients say about me
After being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2012, I found the most challenging thing was to work out a diet that would alleviate the symptoms and side effects of Crohn’s disease. In early 2021 a friend put me in touch with Simone and from our first conversation I felt Simone really understood my situation and made me feel very comfortable discussing my issues and the way different foods affected me and my lifestyle.
Working with Simone was truly a delight, our face-to-face online sessions were never rushed or cut short because the session time was up and the message support in between these sessions often made it feel as though I was her only client.
Prior to Crohn’s I was very active outdoors and in the last 9 years these activities have really taken a back seat due to my anxiety and unwillingness to get out of my comfort zone. Six months on from starting with Simone I can honestly say my life has changed. The symptoms and side effects of Crohn’s disease that I had been living with for the past 9 years have drastically reduced and I now have the confidence to get out and be active again.
It’s incredible how the right diet, supplements and guidance by a professional with such a wealth of knowledge can have such a positive impact on your life and wellbeing, and not only you but those around you too. Simone has changed my life and I couldn’t be more grateful.
I have been working with Simone for the past 6 months and it has been truly life changing! Coming to an age of 50 I felt there was definitely more going on with my body as I was always so tired! We then began the process to find out what exactly was happening. Uncovering there were a few underlying problems with my gut and an autoimmune disorder…we then began to eliminate and then rebuild my overall gut health. I found Simone to be so easy to work with…her support was above and beyond my expectations!
I found Sim through a work colleague and will be forever grateful to him. I was feeling extremely lethargic and knew that ‘stuff’ just wasn’t right in my gut/system. I like the way Sim explores through functional lab tests, therefore having a definitive approach to what’s going on. It’s not a guessing game. Sim helped me resolve what was going on through supplements, nutritional advice and she reminded me how important self care is (which is easily put last on the list when you’re a working Mum.
After working with Sim, I now sleep through the night, I don’t get the bloating I used to experience, I have more energy and I make better food choices (it’s become second nature and I don’t feel as if I’m missing out on anything) My initial test results were quite confronting and it put me into a bit of a spin, but Sim made me feel calm and at ease. She ‘held my hand’ through the whole process. I’ve since recommended her to my husband (who has had amazing results) and also to clients of mine. What can I say, Sim is one of a kind and I’m over the moon that I met her!
When I contacted Simone, I needed a guide, a hand-holder, an advocate and someone to keep me focused on the end goal through this confusing and overwhelming journey of autoimmune disease.
From our first chat on the phone, to being two months into working together, Simone has truly been my guardian angel. She has held space for me, listening and empowering me towards regaining my wellbeing and due to us being in different countries we have done our work successfully online. Her knowledge and commitment to her clients health is integral in all she does, and I cannot recommend her more highly.
I sought out Simone’s help to navigate the symptoms of menopause as well as my constant exhaustion and problems with insomnia. We ran the DUTCH hormone test and it showed hormone imbalances, blood sugar issues and some nutrient deficiencies.
Simone developed my own personalised protocol to work on these issues and support my body. I now know I wasn’t crazy feeling the way I did and there were reasons for my symptoms and am grateful that I can now work on bringing my body back into functioning better. You really don’t have to accept these symptoms as something you just have to put up with, like I believed for the last couple of years! I’m continuing to work on my health but feel I now have a plan to work towards and feel supported that Simone will help me along the way – thank you Simone.
The results we’ve so far achieved for my son Ryan have been fantastic! He is now 22 years old now and has had issues with constipation since he was a child. We ran some functional labs (GI Map, DUTCH hormone testing and food sensitivities) then Ryan started working with Simone on a dietary and lifestyle program together with supplements for three months to help with a leaky gut, gut bacteria issues, poor liver function, many food sensitivities and some hormone imbalances. His bowel movements have become more regular and his dietary habits have significantly improved, bloating and inflammation have disappeared and he has lost some weight which was a bonus and he isn’t craving sweets anymore!
We are extremely happy with the results. Thank you Simone for taking the time to listen and get to the root of the problems so we weren’t left guessing, as well for all your support and dedication in helping Ryan.
