Dip. CBNM, mBANT, BA (hons)
Hello! My name is Kate Newton and I’m a BANT-registered Nutritional Therapist and Naturopath, based in Gloucestershire.
I’ve always been interested in food and how it can affect your health, even from a young age when I spent time with my grandma preparing nutritious fare for the dinner table. However, not realising that this was actually something you could study, I went to university, got my degree and ended up working for a large software company.
By the time I was beginning my thirties, the stress and strain of working for corporate was beginning to show on my health. I started to investigate how I could support my health, especially with food (thank you internet!) and soon realised that there was a wealth of information out there – this rekindled my passion, but I also realised there was a lot of conflicting information out there!
How would I be able to tell which information was relevant and correct and which was mere speculation?
Then one day I was at a food fair and I came across a stall for the College of Naturopathic Medicine. I signed-up that afternoon and began 4½ years of study to qualify as a Naturopath and a Nutritionist.
Now I share the knowledge I learned, educating people on how they can make changes to their lifestyles in order to improve their health. And it's not just about eating kale!
I am registered with The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (or BANT), which is the professional body for Registered Nutrition Practitioners. Its primary function is to assist its members in attaining the highest standards. I am also a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.

Nutritional Therapy is an evidence-based approach to improving health and wellbeing through nutritional and lifestyle changes that have been tailored for the individual.
Rather than ‘treating’ symptoms, naturopathic nutritional therapy aims to find the root cause of an individual’s health concern, addressing the body as a whole.
A fundamental belief of Naturopathy is that poor health begins with a loss of vitality. It is a system of healthcare which encourages the body’s own innate healing mechanisms and aims to promote the wellbeing of the whole individual.
Naturopathy encompasses many holistic techniques depending on the practitioner and can include modalities such as nutrition, hydrotherapy, bodywork, herbal medicine and traditional Chinese medicine.
I originally trained in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy at the Bristol College of Naturopathic Medicine and qualified in 2015. Naturopathic nutrition combines both scientific evidence with more natural and traditional approaches to wellness and looks at treating everyone as an individual – something I truly believe in.
After my initial training, I continued my education with a diploma in Naturopathy which included elements of Bach Flower remedies, tissue salts, iridology, homeopathy, bodywork, herbal medicine and traditional Chinese medicine.
