Abi Barclay-Watt

BSc Hons, MPhil CANTAB, MSc Applied Human Nutrition, Registered Associate Nutritionist

I retrained as a Registered Nutritionist after both my boys started school. I work with clients and groups from schools to corporates on a whole range of issues from healthy eating and sports nutrition, to IBS and women’s health. I am also trained in motivational behaviour, a technique that helps enable people make the changes to their diet and lifestyle they may struggle with.

I have been an associate lecturer at Oxford Brookes since 2018 and  also work part time as a Nutrition practitioner for Achieve Oxfordshire, the Public Health organisation.

Changes in diet and lifestyle are key to help alleviate the effects of hormonal changes particularly at this stage of women's lives. They are key to reduce the increase risks to cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and help women thrive at this time in their life.

Every woman is unique in their experience of the menopause and each will be unique in their diet and lifestyle needs during this period. My approach is a holistic one that includes every aspect of nutrition and wellbeing from gut health to sleep, stress and physical activity. I am also a passionate believer that healthy nutritious food should taste delicious too. I’m delighted to be an associate at OHC and look forward to sharing my knowledge with you.
