We currently have 4 qualified nutritionists working at CCS.

After 11 years working in the pharmaceutical industry, Ester went back to university to do an MSc in Personalised Nutrition at CNELM (Centre for Nutrition Education & Lifestyle Management). She is a full member of BANT (British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy) and is registered  with the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Health care council). She works with private clients at The Natural Gateway Clinic in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, and has a particular interest in Chronic Exhaustive Conditions, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME and Fibromyalgia. She also specialises in digestive complaints, musculoskeletal health and weight management. Ester uses the Functional Medicine approach and works with her clients to develop evidence - based nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to help them reach optimal health.

Selena has been enthusiastic about food and cooking since she was a teenager; choosing to train as a chef straight out of school and spending many years working in the hospitality industry. She became interested in nutrition as a multifaceted way of looking at food, allowing her to explore the topic in a different way. After studying a three year Nutritional Therapy diploma at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), Selena now runs a private practice - 'The Jumble of Life' - based in Greenwich, offering nutritional therapy consultations, cooking lessons and yoga tuition to clients.
It is Selena's opinion that health, and being healthy, are individualistic concepts. There is no one-size-fits-all programme for diet, exercise or lifestyle, because we all live different lives. Particularly for those with dependents, it can be tricky to find the time to put yourself first. But by educating ourselves on food, listening to our bodies and aiming for something that fits with the jumble of our lives, we can aim for our own version of healthy.

Lisa first developed a desire to understand how food and drink affects our health and wellbeing whilst working in the food industry. After studying for a nutritional therapy degree at the University of Westminster she now works with private clients, offering diet and lifestyle advice.
At a consultation Lisa will assess your past and current health status and discuss your diet and lifestyle to determine your needs. She will work with you to put together a personalised diet and lifestyle plan that fits into your schedule. She is particularly interested in digestive disorders, weight management, mood, energy levels and skin complaints. All her recommendations are based on evidence-based research.
When Lisa's mother became her father’s full-time carer she witnessed, first hand, the hard work, stress and strain involved in caring for a loved one and therefore appreciates the opportunity to volunteer with CCS as part of the Nutrition Project.

Portion Size

A study published in the International Journal of Obesity showed that, on average, we eat 92% of whatever we put on our plate. The researchers studied over 1100 adults in 8 countries and found that this statistic was fairly consistent regardless of age and gender. So what can we learn from this?
