About me

How do I work?

Hi, I'm Raihane

I'm a Nutritional Therapist based in Birmingham (UK) and I'm on a mission to inform, inspire, and empower healthier women. 

Growing up in France, I always had an interest in natural therapies and was incredibly lucky to be brought up on home-cooked French and Moroccan dishes. However, my student years at university took a real toll on my health. The combination of takeaways, sugary snacks, poor sleep, and stress contributed to my diagnosis of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) in 2013. For months, I struggled with chronic fatigue and digestive discomfort, as well as suffering from debilitating period pains, and this is when I realised that I had lost touch with my own body and intuition. I decided to take my health into my own hands and quickly developed an immense passion for the healing power of food and nutrients, having experienced their effects first hand.

My experience sparked a deep desire to learn more and help others. In 2015, I decided to enrol on a three-year course at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London. I studied biomedicine and nutritional therapy and was lectured by amazing Naturopaths, Nutritionists and Functional Medicine practitioners. After completing 200 hours of clinical practice, I finally qualified as a Nutritional Therapist in 2018.

Since then, I have been blessed with helping numerous clients take control over their own health and cultivate healthy eating and lifestyle habits. 

If you would like to find out how I could support you to make sustainable, effective changes to your diet and lifestyle, get in touch. I offer a complimentary 15 minute call so we can discuss how I can best support you.
