Clarissa qualified in Nutritional Therapy at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York in 2016. She is a full member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and accredited by the Complementary and Natural Health Council (CNHC). She passionately believes that the food we eat has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing. She has helped clients with different health concerns, ranging from cancer and chronic fatigue to menopausal symptoms, arthritis and digestive issues, to feel better. She has a particular interest in nutrigenomics and working towards better quality of life in clients with cancer. She feels very privileged to accompany all her clients on their journey to an enhanced quality of life.

When she is not practising as a Nutritional Therapist, Clarissa works as a part-time research nurse. She qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1990 and has worked in cancer research since 1997. Training to be a Nutritional Therapist came from her wish to help her patients gain a better quality of life.

Clarissa works on Fridays at York Natural Health and has evening clinics at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York.

Clarissa enjoys cooking, gardening, reading, singing early music and walking in her spare time.
