Why I'm a Nutritional Therapist

I trained to be a Nutritional Therapist to understand more about why and how the food we eat positively and negatively affects our body and mind. And what we can do about it everyday, in an accessible and realistic way. I’m not good at food porn, dare I say it out loud...I’m not a great cook (and it’s online so I’m never going to be able to retract it!). There's lots of fantastic recipe inspiration out there to use already, but what I want to communicate, what I want to share, what I want to practice as a Nutritional Therapist simply isn’t very photo worthy so you won't find many insta food porn shots!

Whether you have read my articles in the Shropshire Star or on other blogs, see me at a workshop or attend a 121 consultation you will soon understand I take a pragmatic and empathetic approach to nutrition and fitting it around your life. Changes will be made, diet and lifestyle reviewed, some foods added, some taken away. But it’ll be in a way that you understand why you’re doing it and essentially want to do it for the long term - because you can. Because the plan, the meal ideas, the goals, me as your practitioner - we are considered and accessible.

Qualification

Following 3 years of study at the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in London I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist. At CNM I was trained in the principles of functional medicine, a science-based method that assesses the underlying causes of symptoms. CNM London is a Nutritional Therapy Council (NTC) accredited college which sets standards of training and education that meet the National Occupational Standards for Nutritional Therapy.

Accreditation

I'm a member of and regulated by the British Association for Applied Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and a member of The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). So hopefully now all of these acronyms should help to explain the letters after my name! Charlotte Griffin-Jones Nutritional Therapist CNM Dip. mBANT CNHCreg

I also have a BA Hons degree in Marketing and Communications (feels like a lifetime ago but I graduated in 2005). Education does not stop once the last essay is submitted. I attend conferences and seminars throughout the year as part of my Continued Personal Development - not only as a requisite as being a member of BANT and CHNC but to continue to further my understanding of the ever increasing developments in nutrition and functional medicine.
