Meet Claudine Martin

I originally trained in modern languages, attaining a BA honours degree from New York University. Following the birth of my first child, I became increasingly interested in helping women achieve a natural birth and trained as a childbirth educator and postnatal doula. My interest in a holistic lifestyle led me to become a Reiki practitioner and lay herbalist. As my children became more independent, I was able to devote more time to my passions - food and healthy living - and went down the route of nutritional therapy achieving a distinction in my diploma from the School of Modern Naturopathy founded by Linda Lazarides, one of the most recognised British naturopathic nutritional therapists. I am a fully insured and licensed practitioner (Balens). I am registered with FNTP (Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners), which requires me to abide by their strict code of ethics.

My Approach:

By evaluating your diet and lifestyle through an in-depth questionnaire and first consultation I am able to assess your symptoms and offer appropriate advice on your diet, lifestyle and other factors affecting your health. I will be able to explain how your illness may have started and offer you simple ways to make inherent changes in your health and well-being. Please see my website for more details.

Making an Appointment:

Once you have made the appointment I will email or mail you a questionnaire. It is very helpful if you have carefully filled this out prior to your appointment. Please allow a full hour for the first appointment as it is necessary to take a full case history in order to diagnose your symptoms. The first consultation includes a full report which I will email you within a few days of your appointment detailing my advice, necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle, etc.

This report is usually about 4-5 pages in length.

Follow-up appointments take approximately 30- 40 minutes and are also followed up with a report. Payments can be made by cash or cheque.

Please allow 24 hours' notice for cancellation so that your appointment time can be offered to another patient. Otherwise I will need to bill you for the full amount.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns prior to deciding on treatment. I offer discounts to family groups and children, so please do contact me directly regarding my rates. Any other current discounts will be available on my website as well. Daytime or evening appointments are available most days.
