Dana is a nutritional therapist specialising in the gut brain axis. Dana believes that normalising poor mental health is not the correct objective because it is not normal. It’s the body’s way of telling us that something isn’t working as it should. She aims to inspire, motivate, and empower people with knowledge on how their bodies work and what we can do to support our bodies to work at their best.
When we understand the role that stress, genetics, poor nutrition and our lifestyles impact our mental health, and how we can make small, effective and achievable changes in each of these areas, then we can start to believe that poor mental health and poor resilience can be overcome.
Before embarking on her Nutrition career Dana had a successful corporate career working as a consultant for PwC. During this career she saw the far-reaching impacts of stress and poor food choices on performance and health of those around her. Finally following her passion Dana started studying a BSc in Nutrition Science and completed her dissertation on the link between stress, gut health and mental health.
Today Dana’s passion is by supporting companies throughout the UK running programmes and courses for reactive and preventative responses to stress and the impact on the gut. Dana has been featured in many publications, regularly speaks on podcasts and at conferences, notably at Food Matters Live this year.
Dana is available for 1:1 consultations, talks, group workshops and “lunch and learn” sessions.
