Personalised nutrition for

everyday life



with Karen Maude 

Meet Karen


Dip NT mBANT ANP CNHC BA (Hons) Psychology

Hello, I’m Karen Maude a registered nutritional therapist and I help clients get back to feeling at their best every day.


​I specialise in personalised nutrition taking a holistic and compassionate approach with my clients, backed up with science.  This means that I take into consideration all the factors in your life that can affect your nutrition: sleep, stress, lifestyle, exercise, health, etc.

I have a special interest in digestive health, children's nutrition and women's health from 40+, but with each individual client my goal remains the same - to optimise your wellbeing through nutrition and lifestyle changes.

We can meet online in my virtual clinic or in person on a Saturday at Colchester's Mersea Road Clinic. You can decide which option you prefer.

We'll work closely together to produce an achievable plan that you can incorporate into your everyday life, involving food that not only makes you feel good, but that you'll also  enjoy.   I'll  also support you as you move forward with implementing change, as you start to thrive and feel reenergised.


As a mum of three,  good nutrition has always been a key part of my tool kit for helping my family.  I hope to show you how easy it is to combine a busy life with eating healthy food, that tastes good too.  Read more.........


why choose nutritional therapy?

"Nutritional therapy involves carefully chosen diet and lifestyle recommendations to meet your specific needs"  


Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health.  Nutritional therapy can benefit you if you wish to find a healthier way of living and can help you reach your potential at each stage of life from pregnancy to aging and can support symptoms of chronic disease.


It's crucial that you take care of yourself and good nutrition has a key part to play in maintaining and ensuring your health for the future.  In fact, food is at the heart of the lifestyle medicine movement being advocated by the NHS and practiced by a new generation of British GP's, including the best selling author Dr Rangan Chatterjee.  


To ensure you achieve the optimal diet for your stage of life it is advisable to meet with a nutritional therapist every few years.    Think of your consultation as an MOT, a necessity, not a luxury. 


Nutritional Therapists like myself can help with preventative measures to protect your health e.g. weight management and we also seek to identify nutritional imbalances to understand how these may contribute to health issues and can help with a wide varieties of symptoms  which may relate for example to:


Allergies and intolerances



Bone health

Cardiovascular health

Chronic fatigue


Diabetes and pre-diabetes

Digestive health


Hormonal health

Immune health


Low mood

Prostrate health

Respiratory function

Skin health

Stress management

Urinary health

Weight management

This  list is by no means complete. 

It just provides a snapshot of some of  the issues I can help you with.  Please feel free to contact me to check if I can help you. 


"Karen’s calm mannerism put me at ease and made me feel comfortable.  She was lovely, very thorough and really listened.  She took into consideration my likes and dislikes and adapted a plan to fit around my routine which included food, supplements and lifestyle changes to help me tackle my digestive problems. 

I’m really happy with the progress I’ve made."
