Humankynd Nutrition's Philosophies

Help individuals reach 'optimal' health. Our optimal is our best, it is however important to realise that this is a lifelong journey whereby we should be aiming to continuously develop, adapt and evolve.

Acknowledges bio individuality. What works for one person may not work for another, 'One person's food is another person's poison'. Taking this principle you will be provided with individually tailored food and lifestyle advice based on your initial consultation and progression throughout your nutritional journey.

Use an evidence-based approach. Trust the process as we pride ourselves on providing a high-quality trustworthy service carried out within the rules and regulations of the latest ​nutritional practice guidelines.

Look beyond the scope of nutrition to optimise the health of individuals via addressing other aspects of living including career, physical activity, relationships and spirituality, nourishing your mind, body and soul. Nutrition plays a key role in health however there are many other factors that influence the health of an individual. We will support you in making positive changes within these areas. You can eat all the kale in the world and still be a far cry from optimal health.  

Inclusion rather than exclusion. Many individuals repel nutritional advice and of those that take it, a high percentage eventually fail due to strict restrictions. Lets discover new tasty nutritious foods that you can't resist, crowding out unhealthier options.


Introducing creativity into the kitchen. Food is so much more then fuel it plays a huge role in bringing individuals together and creating a sense of community. It is to be enjoyed, shared and cherished.

Setting meaningful goals. Together we will identify your goals, make small changes towards your goals, and ultimately supporting you in achieving your goals, so lets get to it, it's time to make your goals a reality.
