About

Maya Oakley

Nutrition is more than simply the food we eat but covers nourishment in all areas of our lives, and I am passionate about nourishing mind body and spirit and working together with my clients to provide them the tools they need to support a state of optimal health and wellbeing.

Many of us have been led to believe that we need to accept the chronic conditions of the modern world, or have been offered limited solutions for common complaints such as poor digestion, headaches, anxiety, low moods, constant fatigue, allergies and hormonal imbalances. Often we've felt like this for so long we forget what it is to feel well, or we feel as though we have tried everything. Often we can sense something is not right but are told test results are 'normal'.

As a naturopath, using a functional medicine approach, I have the time to sit and listen to your story, assess all areas of your health and see where support may be needed, and together we formulate solutions that work for you as person not just a condition.

After working as a freelance fashion stylist for many years and raising two daughters, I decided to take the leap and retrain. I studied Naturopathic nutrition at diploma level and then went on to complete a BSC first class hons in Herbal Medicine, enhancing my clinical skills and deepening my knowledge of therapeutics. 

I currently practice in North London : Stoke Newington and online, you can check availability here or please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
