About Emma Cockrell
Registered Nutritional Therapist

With over 40 years experience working with natural foods, my interest in nutrition began when, as a teenager, I realised that what I ate and drank affected my own wellbeing – firstly in finding I had a food intolerance, and then going through ‘mystery fatigue’ following glandular fever. Supporting my health nutritionally, I overcame these issues and went on to become manager of a wholefood shop and restaurant, holding wholefood cookery classes and giving talks to adult education courses and social groups. I also developed meal ideas and menus for those on restricted diets.

While bringing up a family, I maintained healthy eating principles and cookingfound that careful diet management completely eradicated the childhood eczema experienced by my two girls. I discovered that it is possible to raise children without including sugar in their diet! In building my own health I went through Erica White’s ‘Yeast-free Four-Point-Plan’ to bring candida under control, and then went on to work for Erica’s company ‘Nutritionhelp’ as administrator and PA.

speakingI trained with Premier Training International and became a fully qualified and accredited Nutritional Therapist, receiving a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy.  The intensive and comprehensive training covered the relevance of nutrition and health science for all major body systems, together with practical application in a clinical setting. This thorough training enables me to give appropriate advice on nutrition to each individual. I am also registered with The British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT),  and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

At the beginning of 2013 I became Nutritional Director of Nutritionhelp, providing the opportunity to support clients with dietary recommendation and advice to encourage health. Many clients come to Nutritionhelp with a medical diagnosis of ME/CFS, or who think yeast infection (Candida) may be playing a part in their health status, but I also have experience in working in a wide range of other health areas.

My passion for passing on knowledge about healthy eating means that I am frequently asked to write articles on all aspects of nutrition and deliver talks for various groups and conferences. I am qualified to teach adults and deliver training in nutrition for Care Assistants. I also run healthy cooking classes from my home.

I have extensive experience in working with gut health, particularly issues associated with yeast (candida), which may affect health in a number of ways, including IBS, digestion, female hormones, joint integrity, allergies and skin health.

I am a committed Christian and support my husband, Peter, in Church leadership. Peter also works as a Prison Chaplain, and brings Bible teaching to Pastors in East Africa.  I have two adult daughters and three grandchildren. I work from my home in Essex, near Chelmsford.
