Hello, I'm Karine.

Welcome to Happy Living Nutrition.

I help women transform their health with enjoyable, sustainable nutrition and lifestyle plans based on their unique personal profile

My journey as a Nutritional Therapist started in my thirties. At the time I was working as a teacher, a job that allowed me to help people of all ages and from different social and cultural backgrounds to thrive. It was a role that I loved, but my passion for nutrition was always bubbling under the surface. The birth of my second child set the career change ball rolling, and I embarked on a lengthy but incredibly rewarding 4 year training programme in Nutritional Therapy at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION).

After completing my studies, I became a full member of British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), a professional body for Registered Nutrition Practitioners. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and eager to put all that I had learned into practice, I set up a private Nutritional Therapy practice in Crystal Palace, South East London. 

Nutritional Therapy for Women

Over the years that followed, I helped people with a range of health challenges improve their wellbeing and mitigate their symptoms through sustainable changes. Clients came to me looking for solutions. Whether they were facing fertility issues, PCOS, perimenopause or thyroid disorders, the common theme was that their GP alone was not able to provide the long-term, holistic support they needed. 

As time progressed, it became clear to me that my clients were predominantly female. Women struggling with hormonal issues or grappling with neurodiversity did not feel seen, heard or understood by modern medicine. With social media health ‘gurus’ gaining popularity at alarming speed, my clients were at the point of information overload. The increasing amount of conflicting advice available online was making it almost impossible for them to decipher what was real, or what was just a facade for get-rich-quick schemes pushing the latest fad diet. 

Knowledge = Power

It became my mission to empower my clients with the knowledge and confidence they needed to make healthy choices for themselves. I teach women how to read critically and filter out fact from fiction, so that they can achieve balance without resorting to extreme measures or spending money on unsuitable one-size-fits-all solutions. 

Personalised plans that work for YOU

Every student in the classroom has a different learning style, and that doesn’t suddenly change when you leave school. My nutritional therapy packages take this into account, with flexibility on how we work together and how quickly or slowly you implement changes. 

I also work with many women with ADHD who have benefitted from my recognition and understanding of the interplay between ADHD and food. As someone who has both personal and professional experience with the condition, I know how easy it can be to feel overwhelmed when trying to make changes to your habits. I can reassure you that it is a marathon not a sprint, and I am here to help you navigate the path at your own pace.
