Nigel Fawthrop BSc (Hons), MSc
Personalised Nutrition, Dietary Education, Coaching
Nigel Fawthrop is a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, and a qualified and registered NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) practitioner. He has completed his three-year intensive Diploma in Health and Nutrition in 2017 at Greenwich University. Through the process of achieving a personal goal of completing a mountain ultramarathon, it ignited his passion to help others navigate their way to improve their health and empowering informed daily decisions that intimately affect long-term health and enjoyment of life.
“I am passionate about health and understanding the factors that can contribute to either promoting health or disease. I recognise the connection between mind and body believing that what you eat has a significant effect on health and wellbeing. Other factors include sleep, movement/exercise, stress and relationships and how these may influence our genetic predispositions for health. Lifelong habits and behaviours often take more than just willpower to change. I believe that by supporting and empowering people to make informed decisions and by facilitating and supporting behaviour and sometimes belief change, can enable the development of lifechanging habits to help people live their lives more fully, moving towards longer-term improved health and healthy aging. Successful health coaching, helping clients achieve their goals, is based on a strong positive alliance between client and coach”.
Nigel worked in project management for many years and decided upon a career change to follow his passion in nutrition, health and wellness. His aim is to help support, educate and empower people in support of their life and health goals. Nigel, along-side his training, undertakes regular professional enhancement training courses(CPD), including genetics, to support his learning, attending many international conferences from leading practitioners in the field. Being an integrative complementary therapy, health coaching works well alongside other complementary therapies as well as conventional medicine.

- British Association for Applied Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT)
- Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)
- Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) (FMCA Graduate)
