Lamorna Hollingsworth
Lamorna is a Certified Nutritionist and Mindset coach. Originally studying at Birmingham University, she found herself in a corporate career that left her feeling stressed and burned out. A change of direction was needed and having a love for all things food, she began her training as a Nutritionist.

Lamorna believes strongly that the relationship we have with food and our bodies is extremely complex, and that it’s crucial to look at the person as a whole in order to achieve the very best results.

Our nutrition plays a huge part in our overall health, and Lamorna enjoys working with clients who are looking to improve their relationship with food, break bad food habits, optimize their nutrition for general health/sports, achieve a healthy weight, change to a new diet, investigate intolerances/upset tummies, change body composition, meal planning, appetite management or support with health conditions.

More recently, Lamorna has added to her skills, finding an appreciation for HAES and learning more about non-weight-focused approaches to health. Studying under the London School of Intuitive Eating with Dr Laura Thomas (author of ‘Just Eat It’) Lamorna is certified in her Intuitive Eating diploma course: Applying Intuitive Eating & Non-Diet Approaches in Practice, Advanced Counselling Skills and Nutrition Counselling in Practice.

Giving back is extremely important, and Lamorna is proud to have been able to work with several charities, delivering keynote speeches and talks for REACH and Diabetes UK.
Lamorna is fiercely passionate that everyone should be able to find food freedom, allowing ourselves to find joy in the food we eat – whatever that means for you and your body.
