I am Selma Harman

I am a registered nutritional therapist working at the intersections of functional medicine, nutritional and behavioural sciences.
I am motivated by supporting my clients thrive, recovering their health and wellbeing and empowering them to continue their health journeys independently.

I look at the person I work with as a unique individual with their own unique biological and psychosocial needs and all my advice and support is bespoke to that individual.
I know from working with clients that the trickiest part of our work is implementing the new goals and want to reassure you that I have the skills and tools I will share with you to make this an easy and straightforward journey, one that you will enjoy.

I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition and whilst I offer nutritional support on many health issues, my particular interests lie in digestive health and mental health. I have masters degree in Health Psychology and have worked in mental health for 25 years before qualifying as a Nutritional Therapist.

Who I work with

I work with people who experience digestive complaints such as indigestion, reflux, GERD, IBS symptoms etc.
Some of my clients’ experience fatigue and brain fog that prevents them from thinking clearly and perform well at work or home. Many of my clients experience anxiety, depression and sleep problems and seek to address those with my support. I recognise that some of you feel let down by the mainstream healthcare and worry that you will never feel better.

This is where I come in, I can support you to connect how the foods you eat affect how you feel and function. I will help you identify triggers that may have led to current state of dysfunction and devise a programme that will return you back to your old self, only better! As a result, you will feel more balanced, better able to cope with life demands and feel in charge again of your physical and emotional self. Fed up with your current ‘normal’?

What is nutritional therapy

Most people recognise that good nutrition is important for good health, but many don’t understand the real impact that the food we eat can have on our daily lives and wellbeing. 
As a registered Nutritional Therapist, I use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns.
This approach allows me to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

I consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. I will never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and will refer any clients to their healthcare provider when support required goes beyond nutritional therapy. I also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
