About

what I do & how I can help you

My aim is to help you uncover the root cause of your symptoms through dietary and lifestyle changes.

I’m Lucy Harper, Nutritional Therapist & Wellbeing Coach…

Do you feel that your energy levels are not what they used to be? Often find you wake up feeling unrefreshed? Suffer from bloating or feel uncomfortable after food? Have unexplained pains? Or have you tried every diet under the sun and are still struggling with your weight? 

If this is you, you’ve come to the right place. I can support you to explore what is at the root cause of your symptoms to help you to feel and look better. To help you feel free in the knowledge that what you are eating will leave you feeling so much better, no more discomfort, pain and fear.

Who do I work with?

I work with clients who have come to a point where they are fed up with not feeling great.  They are confused by all the conflicting messages out there and they want change. Often my clients are struggling with unexplained pains, fatigue, and gut issues such as digestion and bloating. By looking at the root cause, we can significantly improve symptoms and even achieve a complete resolution for many.

I also help those who want to lose weight, have more energy, and better sleep. Who may be depressed or suffering from anxiety. From time to time, I also see clients who want to check that they are eating healthily. For instance, if they’ve decided to adopt a specific diet such as vegan diet. Or maybe they simply want to check-in that they are eating in a balanced way to support optimum health.

I strongly believe that prevention is better than cure!  If any of this resonates with you get in touch.

Sessions

I offer 90 minute consultations followed by 30 or 45 minute follow-up sessions. These are either in-person in Bristol or online. Each session can be flexible and tailored to your needs.

My Story

My journey to becoming a Nutritional Therapist & Wellbeing Coach

Having travelled, lived and worked in many countries around the world, I was fascinated by the foods and the customs of the various countries I visited and the link between food and health. I became very aware that eating for both health and pleasure could be a difficult balancing act especially in the places where there is such an abundance of high-sugar, high-carb foods.

I retrained as a Nutritional Therapist following the discovery of the low-FODMAPs diet which a close relative decided to try during an Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD) flare-up. Within days of changing foods all symptoms were eliminated. I found this fascinating; The link between diet and symptoms was so clear to me, yet many years of conventional medical treatment elapsed before a gastroenterologist suggested looking at diet to help alleviate symptoms.  This personal experience was my turning point, I decided to train as a nutritional therapist. 

I had seen first-hand the amazing effect that a change in diet and a nutritional therapy protocol can have on children; having had one child with a Candida overgrowth that impacted on behaviour and another child whose mental health was seriously affected by gluten. 

During my Masters I researched the impact of gluten on health which lead to the publication of my paper – ‘An exploration into the motivation for gluten avoidance in the absence of coeliac disease’-
