6th October 2017 - New Star Psychotherapy Service

I have not been posting news items here recently as I have been completing a Masters in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at Roehampton University. It has been an inspiring three years and a natural progression. I am still offering holistic therapies but have also been offering counselling for over two years now with The Mulberry Centre, Kingston Women's Centre and Kingston iCope, Psychological Therapies Service. I have now set up a private counselling practice in the Richmond area, alongside Star Treatment. Please contact me if you wish to book an introductory counselling session or have any questions. More information to follow! I look forward to hearing from you.

20th January 2016 - National Cheese Day 2016

National Cheese Day 2016

It's National Cheese Day today, a day for cheese lovers. I am loving goats cheese at the moment & would recommend it together with beetroot, chicory, walnuts & raspberry viniagrette, especially good for those who are lactose intolerant.

2nd January 2016 - Why Goat's Milk?

Why Goat's Milk?

Compared to Cows milk, Goat’s milk is ultra-nourishing & prebiotic, has fewer allergenic proteins, is anti-mucousal, lower in lactose & causes less inflammation. It is also high in calcium & fatty acids, but low in cholesterol, it improves your skin & is environmentally friendly.

Having switched from Cow’s to Goat’s milk about a year ago, I find it a lot lighter & easier to digest.

Researchers also believe it could protect against Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s & heart disease.

1st November 2015 - Cashews for the winter blues!

Cashews for the winter blues!

Try cashews if you suffer with the winter blues. Several handfuls will provide 1,000–2,000 mg of tryptophan which works as well as prescription antidepressants.

11th October 2015 - The power of buckwheat

The power of buckwheat

Buckwheat is a flour worth trying, it's a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel making it a suitable substitute for grains for people who are sensitive to wheat or other grains that contain protein glutens. Just made a dairy & gluten free buckwheat banana cake with my 10 year old & it was delicious, a great healthy alternative.

Buckwheat has many health benefits, it’s good for your cardiovascular system, gives better blood sugar control and a lowered risk of diabetes, it helps prevent gallstones, it offers cardiovascular benefits for postmenopausal women. Additional research finds it protective against postmenopausal breast cancer & childhood asthma.
