London Based Nutritionist
Kirsten Brooks BSc(Hons), DN Med (Dist)

Nutritionist Kirsten BrooksWith over 15 years of clinical experience since completing a BSc degree in nutritional medicine in 2005, Kirsten can assess your health, dietary habits and lifestyle to determine the best way to help overcome any health complaints you may have and optimise your well-being. Using evidence-based nutrition, Kirsten will tailor a nutritional programme to your individual requirements and can provide advice on preventing future problems. The bespoke plan will be realistic, effective and enjoyable as she is aware how busy our modern lifestyles can be, and she always provides plenty of support and encouragement. The dietary advice can also wary according to the client’s preference- as some prefer a more flexible approach and others fare better with a more structured programme.

A consultation can help with digestive disorders like I.B.S and S.I.B.O, food intolerances, weight-loss, hormonal problems, PCOS, thyroid conditions, fertility issues, dealing with stress, fatigue, depression, anxiety, burn-out and much more. She takes away the guesswork with personalised, targeted treatment which addresses the underlying causes for your symptoms and can maximise your health potential.

Kirsten's areas of expertise include:

  • Mental health conditions such as:
    • anxiety and depression in adults, tweens and teens
    • during pregnancy and the post-partum period (e.g. perinatal/ post-natal depression & anxiety and post-partum psychosis, for example)
    • in the premenstrual-period (e.g. PMDD, a severe form of PMS)
    • bipolar disease, ADHD, OCD and PTSD.
  • Stress-related conditions such as burn-out and its associated symptoms.
  • Digestive disorders including acid reflux, GERD gastritis, I.B.S and S.I.B.O.
  • Complex chronic conditions including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, brain fog, migraines, psoriasis, interstitial cystitis and eczema
  • Prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes

Using evidence-based nutritional science, Kirsten will use her wealth of experience to devise a well-thought out, dietary and supplement protocol that is effective at treating the underlying causes tailored to YOU as a unique individual. Conscious of how busy our modern lifestyle already is, Kirsten makes sure the plan is realistic and achievable.

Furthermore, Kirsten appreciates that whilst some individuals may love cooking, others may not have the time/inclination to spend hours in the kitchen. And that some clients fare well with a strict, structured plan, whilst others need to make incremental changes and are overwhelmed at the prospect of making drastic changes. She also strives to ensure her clients’ relationship with food remains healthy.

For vegans and vegetarians, Kirsten has much expertise optimising their dietary health and has also developed a unique nutritional lab test for vegans - see Tests.

Ultimately, Kirsten is a highly experienced practitioner, passionate about what she does and has helped many hundreds of clients optimise their well-being over 15 years in clinical practice.
