Gut geek, wife, mum to adult & teenage boys, chief feeder of daft cat and chief walker of an adorable puppy. I love food, friends, glorious views and country walks.
I’ve worked with hundreds of clients – through 1:1 consultations, groups, workshops, talks & retreats. I’ve lectured to nutrition students at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. I’ve provided online courses too.
I get it. I’ve walked a mile in your shoes.
The letters after my name – Jane Barrett DipION MBANT CNHC mean I’m a Registered Nutritional Therapist when working with individuals and Registered Nutritionist when working with groups. My clinical training was four years at the world-renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition where I graduated with distinction (told you I am a geek).
I’m a member of BANT (British Association for Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine) which requires its members to attain the highest standards of integrity and competence; this ensures members of the public receive a professional and safe experience when visiting a qualified Nutritional Therapist.

Being registered with CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) a public, government-funded voluntary register ensures I am trained to the highest standards set by the National Occupational Standards.
BANT and CNHC require all registered practitioners to maintain their skills by undertaking Continuing Professional Development (CPD). I regularly attend lectures & seminars to keep up to date with the latest research & developments in nutritional medicine, particularly digestive health-related.
Membership of a pharmacist-run mentorship Practice With Confidence means I provide you with safe supplementation if you are on medication.
As a Trauma Informed Practitioner (training completed March 2023 by The Chrysalis Effect, accredited by FHT – Federation of Holistic Therapists), I am skilled in recognising the repercussions and links between what you are experiencing now and where those patterns may have been formed. Trauma is stored in the body creating symptoms and obstacles to your emotional & physical wellbeing.
My role is not to provide trauma release treatment myself, but to provide understanding and support for your journey and signpost you to practitioners who are specialised in helping release unconscious, unprocessed traumas.
Important to Know
As a Nutritional Therapist, I am not able to offer to ‘cure’ or ‘treat’ you; that’s for medically-trained doctors. Please see your GP if you have any medical concerns.
My role is to identify physiological imbalances in your body and support them nutritionally to get you back in balance.
I can’t guarantee an outcome for you (if anyone does, run a mile). What I can offer is my guarantee to do my best. Simple.
