NOURISHING TIMES 

Sharon Ling DipNT MBANT 

Sharon Ling is a qualified nutritional therapist and member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists. 
 
Experience working with nutritionists in the UK food and health sector fifteen years ago eventually led Sharon to retrain as a nutritional therapist, having previously worked in the field of change and programme management. 
 
An increasing body of evidence linking diet and health highlighted the importance of being clear about the food we eat and the impact food has on the body as well as the mind. Sharon's aim was to make frequently, quite confusing information about diet and health more straightforward and simple, in a way that could be used by anyone on a daily basis. 
 
Sharon's previous experience in taking large numbers of people through a process of change has proven invaluable in helping people adopt new dietary habits, especially useful in weight loss. 
 
Now based at three complementary health clinics in South Wales, Sharon sees people with conditions such as IBS and high cholesterol as well as people who would simply like some professional and personalised advice about how best to adapt their diet to suit their individual health background, lifestyle and age.

As a mother of two young children, Sharon knows how testing it can be to organise healthy meals and snacks every day with variety, cost and balance to juggle. She is armed with useful tips and techniques to ensure children, whether fussy eaters or not, achieve a balanced diet and can support either individuals or families who would like to move to a healther diet regime. 
 
Sharon has a particular interest in how dietary patterns contribute to national health profiles; in other words how daily and regular food choices contribute to levels of health in countries across the world. 
 
A period of ten years living and working in the Far East and S.E Asia highlighted the differences in diet and attitude to food between the West and the East. It proved to Sharon the significance of healthy patterns of eating from an early age. Her time abroad also provided provided insights into the use of many world foods now available in major supermarkets. 
 
Sharon worked as a part time volunteer for the nutrition section of Unicef in Bangkok on the child malnutrition programme for South East Asia. Before training as a Nutritional Therapist, she gained a BSc in French, German and International Politics from the University of Surrey and an MBA from Imperial College, London. 
 
Currently based from three complementary health clinics in South Wales. Telephone and skype consultations are possible.
