About Sally

My aim is to empower you to make the best choices for your own health and wellbeing

Hello! I’m Sally

Health writer, Reg Nutritional Therapist (rCNHC) & Reg Nutritionist (MBANT)

Nutritional therapists are often viewed as pious, clean-living individuals, baking kamut muffins for fun.  I hate to disappoint you – I’m really not like that.

Having spent my teens and early twenties as a terrible pescatrian (more of a ‘pastafarian’​ if I’m honest, living on pasta bake and cheese) I know from experience the detrimental effects of poor food choices.

Zero energy, spots, raging pre-menstrual tension, bloating, crazy bowel habits…the list goes on.

At age 21 I got a job in a fantastic local healthfood store (Tullivers in York city centre) and slowly began my journey into the world of herbs, nutrition, naturopathy and positive lifestyle changes.

I loved sharing this information with customers and decided to take things further by qualifying as a Nutritional Therapist.

Fast forward quite a few years (and a few grey hairs, and a return to eating meat!) and I now run ‘Nutrition in York’​.  I provide talks & workshops to groups and organisations, write nutrition & health articles for various publications, and work in nutrition education as Clinic Supervisor and Module Leader for Clinical Practice on the MSc Nutrition Science & Practice course at Northern College of Acupuncture here in York.

Presentation & writing clients include…

Hiscox UK ‘Lunch & Learn’ presentation on nutrition for managing stress and depression

TSYS workplace presentation on nutrition for energy and managing stress

RNIB and Sight Support Ryedale nutrition workshops for people newly diagnosed with sight loss

Radio York regular commentator on nutrition and health news stories and I take part in a twice yearly phone in session, answering listeners health questions.

Much to the amusement of my family, I’ve even appeared on Sky News talking about beans and lentils!
