About Me


Sophie Leicester
BA Hons English, BSc Hons Nutritional Health
Dip BCNH mBANT, CNHC registered
Registered Nutritional Therapist

I am fully insured, a member of the professional organisation BANT (British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy), and the CNHC* (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council), which is supported by the Department of Health. I studied for four years at the University of Greenwich and BCNH – the UK College of Nutrition and Health, to get my BSc Honours degree in Nutritional Health, achieving a distinction in the Clinical Diploma. BCNH sees Nutritional Therapy as complementary to orthodox health care and firmly rooted in scientific evidence.

I have been working as a Nutritional Therapist now for 10 years and I have gathered a huge amount of experience of working with different people with differing circumstances and requirements. I particularly enjoy working with people who wish to gain or lose weight; this is a difficult area for many people and I combine nutrition with an understanding of our psychology around food, as well as coaching and counselling skills.

My previous background in education has allowed me to draw on many years of experience of working with people of all ages and from a range of backgrounds. As well as my Post Graduate Certificate in Education, I have an Advanced Diploma in Coaching, a diploma in Neuro Linguistic Programming, and have used and developed coaching and counselling skills throughout my career. Since practising as a Registered Nutritional Therapist I have also undergone further training in Health Coaching and I have also attended training about the emotional and psychological aspects of our relationship with food.

Having worked at Senior Management level in education for several years, I also have the experience and skills to lead training workshops for your staff, and have developed and delivered bespoke training programmes for organisations including Nursing Homes, Hospices and voluntary organisations.

For individual consultations, I hold consultations via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. If you do not have that technology, or are unable to use it, I can also hold consultations by phone call if necessary. 

* The CNHC is a regulatory board for healthcare practitioners. The standards required for registration are very high and registration with the CNHC is becoming known as a hallmark of high quality. The Department of Health recommends that you consult practitioners who are registered with the CNHC. Find out more at: http://www.cnhc.org.uk/pages/index.cfm
