Florence Neville, MRes (Health and Wellbeing)
I have had a strong interest in health and wellbeing since childhood and was already reading books around the subject in my early teens. Despite this, I suffered fatigue, depressive episodes, chronic anxiety and insomnia; brain fog, acne, impaired metabolism and frequent bouts of acute tonsillitis until I started to develop a more holistic understanding of health.
In 2009 I gained my Diploma in Natural Nutrition and had the honour of seeing my clients overcome conditions such as migraines, arthritis, kidney stones, digestive distress, infertility, and weight issues. My approach to optimum health is centred around honouring an ancestral model of nutrition and lifestyle and so, while my focus is on helping a client to shift their diet towards the types of food that humankind evolved on, I will also suggest lifestyle changes such as naturopathic techniques and movement practices. You can find out about my coaching practice here.
In 2019 I was awarded a distinction in my research masters in Health and Wellbeing. You can read about my dissertation, Autistics, Autodidacts and Autonomy here. I have a special interest in working with autistic clients as I myself am autistic. I believe that this puts me in a unique position to understand many of the particular challenges of autistic individuals, such as sensory issues, difficulties in making changes and specific stress triggers around food and diet.

2020 was awarded a studentship to commence a PhD programme in Health and Wellbeing. I will be researching whether key diagnostic ‘deficit criteria’ may actually be effective strategies for managing anxiety.
