Karine Stephan - Nutritional Therapist

About

I grew up in Brittany, in the North West of France, and moved to London after completing university. For more than a decade, I enjoyed being a teacher, working with people of all ages, from different social and cultural backgrounds. Shortly after the birth of my second child, I decided it was the right time to change my career path and pursue my passion for nutrition. I completed my 4 year training in Nutritional Therapy at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), where I trained in the principles of Functional Medicine, which is a personalised and integrative approach to healthcare. I am a full member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), a professional body for Registered Nutrition Practitioners. I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners.

Our knowledge of nutrition is constantly evolving, therefore, I attend regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events, to ensure I am up-to-date with new developments within the field of nutrition and to improve my skills.

At home, we love experimenting with food. My partner and I have recently started a side food business, Palace Culture, and we create fermented nut cheeses and collaborate on workshops. I also enjoy joining forces with other complementary healthcare practitioners for both talks and workshops.

I love what I do. It allows me to combine my knowledge of nutrition, my eagerness to keep learning, my love of cooking and my experience of being an educator. Like many colleagues, I came to this career after struggling with my own health; this helps me understand my clients’ needs even further.
