Caroline Skirrow BSc NT mBANT CNHC
Registered Nutritional Therapist
My knowledge of nutrition and cooking coupled with my background in psychology, healthcare and communications gives me an unique and very diverse set of skills to help people. I have a deep passion for what I do, which is evident to anyone who meets me. This helps me to quickly gain trust and motivate my clients to make the changes they need.
I have always had an interest in cooking and health, so after a two-decade career in marketing and communications I decided to retrain as a Nutritional Therapist. I studied at the University of Westminster and was awarded a First Class Honours degree in 2007.
After graduating I set up my practice in Crouch End and went on to work as a Nutritional Therapist for the private health group, Nuffield, offering consultations at their Premier gym in Covent Garden. In addition to the Crouch End practice I also have a clinic at The Light Centre in Moorgate.
As an ex-business executive I know only too well the pressures of the corporate world, so am well placed to offer advice on how to fit healthy diet and lifestyle choices around the demands of the modern working life.
I regularly give nutrition talks and deliver a variety of well-being activities such as ‘Meet the expert’ events, weight-loss programmes and menu planning.
My PR and communications background makes me a natural choice for media comment and I have been featured in numerous publications such as The Daily Mail, Men’s Health, Runner’s World and Cosmo.
I choose to be a member of the self-regulatory body BANT and am registered with the CNHC. This means that I meet a rigorous set of training standards, operate within a voluntary code of practice and meet the necessary criteria to be an approved practitioner for GP referral.
I am fully insured with professional indemnity insurance by Balens Ltd.
