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. 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 nutrition.
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 helped numerous clients take control over their own health and find healing through nutritional therapy.
If you would like to find out how I could support you to make sustainable and 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.
