Shona Kennedy

Qualified, passionate and dedicated

I’m Shona, a Nutritional Therapist specialising in supporting women and children to feel their best physically and mentally. 

I help by using scientific knowledge and what the latest research is telling me, balanced with a holistic approach of looking at you as an individual. This approach differs from the medical model which views the body as individual systems to be treated independently, without an appreciation for the person as a whole. Everything is connected!

My particular areas of interest are gut health; women’s health including hormones and associated areas such as menopause and conditions like PCOS; fertility; pregnancy and post-partum health.

Since becoming a Mum myself, I have expanded my clinical practice to include children’s nutrition as it is a subject close to my heart.

Shona's Story

I discovered the power of nutrition through dealing with my own ill-health during my teenage years. I had various symptoms spanning over several years before I was finally diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. This is an inflammatory bowel disease and an autoimmune condition, which meant there was no cure and I was told I’d likely be on medication for life. 

I took the medication and thankfully my symptoms slowly started to improve but I was convinced there must be more I could do to help myself. I began to look into modalities outside of the medical profession to see if anything could help. 

I stumbled across a Nutritional Therapist which was absolutely life-changing for me. Through working together over several months, I was able to reduce inflammatory levels, heal my gut and return to eating solid foods! My consultant was delighted with my progress and began reducing the medication I was on over time, until I was medication free.

I’ve been in remission for over 15 years now and can enjoy food free of worry! My immune system is balanced and I am generally thriving. I am proof that the right diet and support can change lives, and that’s what I’m passionate about doing.
