You're in safe hands
Hi! We're Kirstie (PhD, mBANT, mCNHC, ANutr) and Deborah (RD, MSc, mBANT), the co-founders of You Nutrition. We have a combined 40 + years of experience in dietetics, nutrition, nutritional therapy, and health coaching, and as such, bring a unique combination of knowledge and approaches to our practice.
Together, we designed, implemented, and for 10 years managed a nationwide dietetic and nutrition programme in the United Arab Emirates before returning to the UK to follow our passion for nutrition and lifestyle medicine and establishing You Nutrition Clinic and Consultancy, which offers one-to-one clinical and educational support to individuals and groups with a wide range of health concerns.
We work closely together to ensure that you receive the best support possible on your journey to better health. We firmly believe that two minds are better than one, giving our clients the very best of our combined knowledge and experience.
We want you to feel your very best. Using a Functional Medicine approach, we will work closely with you, mapping your life events and health history, to determine the root cause of any diagnosed conditions or symptoms that you are experiencing.
We understand that change isn't easy, which is why we will support you to make evidence-based, scientifically supported changes to your diet, environment, and lifestyle to optimize your health and nutritional status at a pace that suits you. There is no judgment, only empathy and kindness.
All sessions are completely confidential and in line with UK Government GDPR guidance and BANT guidelines. We are both highly qualified and fully registered by our respective governing bodies. Your budget, desired outcomes, ability, capacity, and wellbeing will be first and foremost in all decision-making to ensure that you feel comfortable at every step of your journey.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The first step is for you to book your free 15-minute chat so that we can get a better understanding of your situation. From here, if we feel that we can help you, we will send you a questionnaire to complete, and schedule an appointment with you. If the questionnaire is too daunting for you to complete by yourself, we can complete this together in your first appointment.
At your initial appointment, we will provide you with advice and support to help you to make the first steps on your health journey. This might include recommendations for further testing (through your GP or private functional tests). If you require functional tests, we will talk you through the most appropriate and affordable options for your condition and support you through the process. If you require any supplements or nutraceuticals, we will provide detailed guidance. We will also work with you to develop a schedule of appointments that suits your needs and finances.
If you are feeling less than optimal, and have concerns about your health or the health of someone you care about, get in touch to arrange a free 15-minute chat.
