She also has a special interest in food sensitivities and the impact of food and diet on mood, behaviour and energy.

Rachel offers one-to-one consultations where she will take a full case history and discuss your health goals with you. She can also organise laboratory testing, which may include genetic testing, to offer a truly personalized dietary and, where appropriate, supplementary plan. Rachel has a strong belief in the healing power of food and her aim is to offer an individualised approach to help people feel as well as they can.

Rachel offers a warm and friendly approach offering advice that is practical and easy to follow. She has had first hand experience of implementing specific diets to assist with health problems and has seen the benefits. She gives practical advice and ideas to help make it easy, achievable and stress-free.

Rachel trained at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, where she is now also a Clinic Tutor. She is a member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and is also registered with the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

I would thoroughly recommend Sue Leader - she has a very down to earth yet holistic approach. I have been seeing her for about 18 months for allergies to trees, grasses, weeds, cats, dogs, dust and gas fumes. The treatment has been pretty intense because I can get asthma from these things, which had been getting worse. This year however I have massively reduced my use of anti-histamines due to using the remedies that Sue prescribed. She is a true Wise Woman.
Sara Asgard

I first came to see Sue in 2008 for homeopathy because I was suffering from persistent negative thoughts about myself. I used to look forward to the monthly sessions to talk and for the homeopathic prescription.
Many things have happened in the 3 years that I have been seeing Sue (good and bad) and I feel that she has really helped me along. I am very happy with life now, and after having my recent children we all come and see Sue.
Sue has so much experience which helps her to be such a good practitioner and I feel she is very trustworthy, I am able to tell her things I wouldn’t tell other people; she doesn’t judge and she is honest in her responses. Specifically she has helped me get past my negative thoughts, and helped me to carry my perfectly healthy twins up to full term, and has helped with my nutrition, diet and weight loss.
My twins see Sue regularity for their ailments and she has identified food intolerances that were troubling them, our trips to the GP are infrequent!
