I’m Lisa Powell, a registered Nutritional Therapist (Dip ION, mBANT) based in West London. Welcome to my website, Lisapnutrition.
I studied at the world-renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London and graduated as a fully-qualified Nutritional Therapist. I am a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), the regulatory body for Nutritional Therapists, and the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the government’s regulatory body. Continuing professional development (CPD) is a requirement of the CNHC and I am constantly attending courses to keep my knowledge up-to-date. I have attended specialist training in the following areas:
- Thyroid health, with a particular interest in Hashimoto’s
- Gastrointestinal/digestive health
- Hormonal health, particularly female hormones
- Metabolic Balance programme – I am a qualified Metabolic Balance coach
- Currently studying Performance Nutrition with Institute of Performance Nutrition (due to complete May 2020)
- ISAK Level 1 Anthropometry practitioner (accreditation pending)
I am also an Affiliate with SuperWellness. As a team we run Corporate Nutrition and employee wellbeing programmes for companies. I am their School Wellness Expert, focussing on developing healthy school communities and running programmes and talks for teachers, staff, parents and children.
I run weekly nutrition workshops at the 240 Project, an Arts and Health Activity Centre for people affected by homelessness, vulnerability and exclusion.
I have always been interested in the link between food and health and was inspired to pursue a career in Nutrition through study at ION. I am a mother to teenage children so fully appreciates the challenges of feeding a family and of satisfying not only different taste buds, but also different dietary requirements. At home the emphasis is on healthy, tasty but flexible eating.
I am passionate about healthy eating and educating people about how changes they make to their diet can have a profound effect on their health, wellbeing and ultimately their lifestyle.
