Kathleen Farren

I have a life long fascination with how food affects us, both mentally and physically.  My first career was in the Catering Industry – my love of food and cooking wasn’t really fulfilled as I was working long hours and neglecting my own health.  I knew that the food I was eating wasn’t the healthiest, a combination of caffeine, sugar and the wrong fat! Skipping meals and pressure of work was contributing to low moods and energy dips.  I decided I wanted to learn more about how food was affecting me, and why I was running on empty which led me to study the science of nutrition after the arrival of my first child. I wanted to know how to feed her well, as well as to feel better myself!

I was so excited to start my studies at The Institute for Optimum Nutrition and after 3 years, I subsequently started practising as a Registered Nutritional Therapist in 2000. In 2005 we moved the family to Dubai, where I worked at a wonderful Clinic, Synergy Integrated Medical Centre.  It’s during this period that I discovered the importance of mental and emotional wellbeing, gaining an understanding of the barriers to making nutrition and lifestyle changes. I trained in reiki therapy, became an NLP Coach and ran the zest4life nutrition and coaching programme for 5 years. I returned to the Twickenham in 2012 in time for the Olympics and started sewing the seeds for my Joyful Eating programme which combines nutrition and emotional coaching support for emotional eating behaviours to help stop yo-yo dieting and bring joy back to eating healthily.

I also practice Reiki which is a very effective therapy to support clients emotionally on this journey of self discovery and to help them with confidence, allowing them to let go of old unwanted behaviours.  I also use BACH Flower Remedies which are a wonderful tool to aid emotional balance. I have clinics in Twickenham and Teddington, providing telephone or online consultations and coaching programmes.

A full consultation with Eileen will include a discussion of your current health issues in the context of your health history, lifestyle and diet. She will then agree an individual treatment plan with you, which will include an individual prescription for herbal medicine. This may include a herbal tincture, herbal tea, creams or ointments specific to your needs. Medicines are supplied at additional cost.

Eileen is passionate about the role of food and herbs in maintaining good health. Dietary advice is integral to Eileen’s Herbal Medicine treatment plans, but some clients may prefer to book a Nutritional Therapy consultation for a more detailed personal nutrition plan. Eileen is happy to discuss which route is best suited to your needs.

If you are thinking about commencing counselling, you may be wondering where to start and it is important that you feel comfortable and can trust the therapist you work with at this very early stage. I have over 10 years experience working as a qualified and registered psychotherapist and personally feel that providing a safe and confidential setting for our work together really does provide the best start for you.

You may wish to find a goal in your life or to think about and work towards a different approach to a difficult situation, or to life in general. I offer an intervention based on the idea that experiences and relationships from the past can sometimes affect the way we live our lives in the present. I have extensive experience in bereavement and loss and can help with what can be a very difficult time in your life.
