Shelley Wilkes DipCNM, MBANT, NTCC, CNHC


Shelley is a nutritional therapist who works with individuals to adapt their diet and lifestyle in order to address specific health concerns and medical conditions.  She has a particular interest and experience in working with patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS); Healthy Eating for Children and Families, and stress related ailments and disorders such as anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, immune system breakdown and digestive complaints.


Her nutritional programs focus on identifying specific nutrients which may be deficient and addressing this in order to bring about healing within the individual.  Full support is given to encourage the patient to incorporate the necessary dietary changes into their lifestyle, including important guidance on food combining.

Nutritional therapy is not only beneficial in weight management and the full range of digestive disorders, it can help in every aspect of health including:


· raising energy levels

· balancing hormones naturally and improving fertility

· managing stress more effectively and improving sleep patterns

· improving skin conditions

· delaying the progress of degenerative diseases such as arthritis or multiple sclerosis

· identifying food allergies and intolerances

· reducing the risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s


Nutritional therapy not only works well on its own, but also in conjunction with orthodox medicine and other complementary therapies (such as those offered at York House) depending on what conditions a patient may be suffering from.

Louise Biccard

Jane Foxon


Jane gave up a career in marketing to train as a nutritional therapist having greatly benefited from following such advice herself.  She graduated in nutritional therapy from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2008. 


Whilst thoroughly enjoying the wonderful tastes, colours, smells and textures of food, Jane never ceases to be amazed by the effects (both beneficial and detrimental) that certain foods can exert on different people.  By including or omitting these foods from our diet, identifying nutrient deficiencies, ensuring we get enough sleep and appropriate exercise and reducing our levels of stress and exposure to environmental toxins, we are doing all we can to attain optimal health.

Since the birth of her little boy, she had developed a particular interest and experience in all aspects of pre- and post- natal health, including fertility enhancement, weaning and infant nutrition. Louise also specialises in stress-related illnesses, allergies and intolerances, eczema, asthma and hay fever.
