I am Natasha, owner and nutritional therapist at Arcobaleno.
Nutritional therapy is a talking therapy and it is important to listen to clients. This is a skill I am naturally good at. I give clients time to tell their story as well as give them professional nutritional advice. I am also caring and relate easily to others.
As a mum of two teenagers I have over the years developed a hobby for cooking from scratch. When I started studying nutrition my cooking and eating habits changed and this enhanced my passion for food and cooking. I am always experimenting with food however still have firm family favourite recipes that are not only nutritious they taste good as well. I am currently working on fermenting foods, with some success and a little failure and similarly trying out dehydration of foods. These techniques are a new extension to my knowledge and skills.
Like many other nutritional therapists I came to nutritional therapy through concerns about my own health. I also wanted to start a new career, previously worked in financial services and then a full time mum, going back to work I wanted to try a different career. Through studying and embracing nutritional therapy my health improved, so did my family’s and even the dog! Through a combination of my skills, life experience, knowledge of nutrition and interest in food, I believe I offer a unique and personalised service.
I have to continually expand my knowledge in nutrition as a requirement but I also love learning new topics and expanding my current knowledge.
I chose Arcobaleno as my business name as it means rainbow in Italian, I am married to an Italian and love the country, food and language. Eating lots of colourful vegetables and fruit can be a very good start to gaining optimal health!
