Anne Richardson

Anne is a registered nutritional therapist and will help you understand what it is that you should be eating. She grew up in France where she embarked on a life-long love of cooking and food. Her teenage years were, however, fraught with anxiety towards food and her body, so she knows what it feels like to be desperate to lose weight.

Her previous career was in publishing until a trek in the Canadian Rockies, during which she had a bit of an epiphany (euphemism for middle life crisis) and decided to quit her job to re-train for four years at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London.

She’s a firm believer that diet and lifestyle are key to optimum health, but also that you don’t have to live off sawdust to be healthy. Her aim is to combine her knowledge of nutrition with her passion for cooking to help you achieve your goals without having to stare down an empty plate.

In her spare time, she loves to cook and especially bake (during my Rockies trip it was very much a toss up between retraining as a nutritional therapist or a baker… my friends are still mad at me and threaten to sign me up for the Bake Off!). She likes to think she’s quite creative and loves “making stuff” so she’ll try her hand at anything from sewing to painting, sanding, tiling (might leave that one a miss next time), sanding floor boards etc.

Her motto: “What’s the worst that can happen?!”

Qualifications and Experience:

MA in English Literature

Fully registered member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT)

Registered with the Complimentary & Natural Health Council (CNHC)
