Jacqui has always been interested in food and has a love of cooking. She initially qualified as a chef before spending 15 years in television production.
Following the birth of her second child, Jacqui developed Fibromyalgia and spent 5 years trying many conventional and alternative approaches to find a way of managing her condition. Nutritional Therapy was the treatment which enabled Jacqui to tackle her Fibromyalgia and lead a normal life. She was so impressed with the results that she decided to train as a Nutritional Therapist, completing a BSc (Hons) in Nutritional Therapy at Middlesex University. Her research thesis focused on ‘Fibromyalgia and Food’ investigating the link between foods consumed and Fibromyalgia symptoms. She has spoken at Fibromyalgia Support Group meetings and has written extensively on the subject. Although Jacqui has a personal interest in Fibromyalgia, she is qualified for general practice and has had much experience and success in supporting patients with Diabetes, IBS, Asthma, PMS, Headache and Migraines, Food allergies, Skin Conditions and Chronic Fatigue to name but a few.
Jacqui is a full member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). She is a Senior Associate Member of The Royal Society of Medicine. She is also a qualified Dietary Analyst and NLP coach.
