Healthy Starts Here
Nutrition & Wellness
Laura Hardy, Registered Nutritionist
I believe in self-care, and prioritising health and wellness before we are forced to make time for illness.
It was during a successful career in film & TV that my health started to take a downturn. The pressure of working all hours and putting good nutrition on the back seat lead to me suffering digestive issues, burnout, hormone imbalances, fatigue & depression. Yes my career was thriving, but my body was trying to tell me otherwise. When life took a different turn I embarked on a new path. A path to achieving optimal wellness, and with the goal to help others do the same.
After studying biomedicine and nutrition for 3 years, I started practising and helping clients feel their very best selves. I have experienced first hand how the stresses and strains of modern life can wreak havoc with our body's processes. As a nutritionist, I dedicate time to get to know you and your lifestyle, to get to the root of your symptoms, and then support your body holistically, without just plastering over isolated symptoms.
Your journey to healthy starts here.

"Laura knows her stuff! She explains what she is talking about in a very clear manner. She listens very carefully to questions & concerns and engages in a dialogue with you. Her nutrition plan was clear and related to me specifically.
She is very warm, friendly & caring. It was a pleasure to attend her clinic."

As your nutritionist I will work with you to fully support you in your journey back to healthy.
The initial consultation is extremely thorough as I take a full medical history, family history, details of lifestyle and dietary intake, any medications and sleep & exercise habits. This attention to detail allows me to provide support in a holistic way, that is to say that I don’t just treat isolated symptoms, but consider what may be causing these symptoms and support the body as a whole entity so as to promote overall health and wellness. Any recommendations I give will always be grounded in and backed up by the latest scientific research, and although nutritional therapy works differently to mainstream medicine, I work as an adjunct to the health service where necessary.
