Providing Customised Nutrition Counselling
“I do not believe that there is a one-size-fits-all answer to health and nutrition and prefer to work closely with clients to create tailored plans to meet their needs.” Louisa finds it highly fulfilling to help people achieve their health goals.
Outside the Practice
When she’s not seeing clients, Louisa enjoys cooking, coming up with new recipes and catching up with friends over a cup of tea.
