My philosophy is that good health is a lifestyle choice. There is no pill or magic diet that is going to give you a quick fix to your dream body or the healthy person you want to be. You need to commit to a lifestyle that is going to help you achieve and maintain your health goals.
I have a lifelong passion for natural health and nutrition. Having worked for over 15 years in highly pressurised corporate environments, I decided to turn my passion into a career and studied a 3 year Nutrition Diploma at The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London. Sport is also an integral part of my life and I regularly compete in triathlons, half marathons and extreme obstacle races.
Making small changes to what we eat can have a significant impact on our health and vitality. Nutritional Therapy in Den Haag involves changes to diet and lifestyle to support wellbeing and natural balance.
I practice a naturopathic Nutritional Therapy approach in Den Haag, which addresses the underlying causes of disease, looking at all the systems of the body and working with my client in a therapeutic partnership. Rather than a disease-centred approach my method is client-centred. Naturopathic nutrition looks at the whole person, not just individual symptoms.
Who are my clients?
My clients are people who are looking to improve their overall health and wellbeing through a natural approach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of chronic health problems, from digestive disorders to hormonal imbalance to hypoglycaemia. My clients are generally interested in discovering the underlying cause of their health problems rather than suppressing symptoms and are motivated to play an active role in their own healing process
I also work with clients who are looking to improve their general wellbeing; want to lose weight or who require sports nutrition advice, in particular those training for a sporting event such as marathon or triathlon.
How do I work with my clients?
I focus on identifying and addressing the underlying problems that are causing a client’s sub-optimal health and performance. Using tools such as an in-depth questionnaire, laboratory tests (where required) and by taking a thorough case history.
Once I have worked with my client to get a picture of what is going on, I use nutritional therapy, stress management, lifestyle changes and supplements to help my clients achieve optimum health.

What my clients say
"I started my new health regime to lose weight, build muscle, improve fitness and also live a healthier lifestyle. Bernandette's bespoke health and fitness plan has been tremendous. It has changed my life, by which I mean my stamina has improved, I can easily play five sets of county level tennis, I feel stronger and calmer than ever before. I suffer from dermatitis which I have been able to keep under control thanks to the advice she gave me with regard to vitamin options. Bernadette is motivating, sincere and makes the process of a life style change enjoyable and exciting. I highly recommend Bernadette's services" Justin, Brighton UK
"I found Bernadette very professional and approachable, understanding and knowledgeable of problems. She helped to make sense of all the information out there, that can be confusing. She has a good sensible approach and was flexible to my needs and preferences. After following her recommendations I saw an improvement in my health which has continued after returning to a normal diet and has given me a useful resource to go back to when feeling under the weather. I found her services good value for money as her advice continued beyond the sessions and she was always quick and helpful at coming back to me on my questions." Selena, London UK
