Emma Maitland-Carew (DipION, FdSc, mBANT, mCNHC and GAPS registered practitioner, Metabolic Balance Coach and HeartMath Coach).

profileEmma is a licensed and accredited Nutritional Therapist. She undertook her clinical training at The Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London and also at the University of Bedfordshire.  ION is the most long-established and one of the most recognised nutritional institutes in the United Kingdom.  Emma received ‘The Award of Excellence’ from her university for the best dissertation in her year.

An experienced chef, Emma has worked as Head Chef for the Penny Brohn Cancer Care Centre, the UK’s leading Cancer Charity. She has written features for the Optimum Nutrition Magazine and recipes for the Optimum Nutrition E-News.

Emma is a trained Functional Medicine Practitioner.  This means that her approach aims to integrate and implement a wide variety of knowledge bases in the service of individual clients.  Rather than attempting to find a single treatment for a single ‘diagnosis’, Emma will begin with the client’s story, and consider evidence for a broad spectrum of potential clinical imbalances, before creating a specific, comprehensive, mutually-agreed plan for improving health.  Emma has attended and completed the inaugural Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™ (AFMCP™-UK) training in London.  Emma has also trained as a GAPS practitioner, in Metabolic Balance ® and also HeartMath.

Emma is currently registered with British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) requiring her to abide by their strict code of ethics, and is a member of the NHS Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners.

Now based in Oxfordshire, Emma works from the Bury Knowle Health Centre in Headington, Oxford and The Godswell Natural Therapy Centre in Bloxham, outside Banbury.

Emma is a committed Christian who hopes to encourage healing through nutrition. She is passionate about the healing effects food has on the body.
