Nutritionists in North London - Stoke Newington and Surrounding Areas
Harriet Bindloss ‘The Nutritional Bean’ DipION, mBANT, CNHCreg
Hello! I’m Bean, a registered Nutritional Therapist, health coach, cook, wife and mother.
I work with adults and children and am passionate about helping families improve their health and wellbeing through nutrition. My personal mission is to educate, motivate and support my clients to make achievable diet and lifestyle changes to feel energised and fantastic. Together, we can make eating a pleasure.
Using evidence-based, bespoke Nutritional Therapy, we will make changes to your diet and lifestyle that are personalised to you and tailored your needs. I combine health coaching with practical and, often, hands-on cooking solutions that are simple and sustainable, to give you the motivation and support you need to get the best results possible.
Experience has taught me that to achieve your goals, we will need to work together for a longer period of time (10-12 weeks or more). This will allow me to address underlying issues so that we can get to the root cause – plus it takes time to create new habits. Typically, a 10-12 week package starts at £295* and includes:
- One initial face-to-face consultation (lasting 90 minutes)
- Follow-up consultations (3 or more)
- Regular, mini progress calls, to help keep you on track and work through any challenges
- Comprehensive analysis of your health, including symptoms, medical and family history, lifestyle, food diary and stress
- Personalised nutrition advice, including bespoke diet and lifestyle plan**. This would naturally include an assessment of potential interactions between current medication and nutrients, if applicable
- Guidance on meal planning and shopping, plus recipes
- Email support between sessions
- Health coaching to motivate you and support change
As well as private consultations (in Stoke Newington and surrounding areas), I will be running group programs and workshops on a range of topics (such as Childhood Nutrition, Approaching Menopause with Confidence, Nutrition for Breastfeeding). I also offer Family Nutrition MOT packages and cookery sessions, so keep an eye out for announcements.
Please don't hesitate to contact me to organise a FREE 30-minute Discovery Call, which is a great way to discuss your health concerns and how I may be able to help.
I am a qualified Nutritional Therapist with a diploma from The Institute of Optimum Nutrition (ION) in Richmond, a leading school of science- and evidence-based Nutritional Therapy in the UK. I am registered with our professional body, The British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), and with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), which demand high standards of practice. I am fully insured and regularly attend professional training events and seminars to keep abreast of the latest science and developments.
*Payment can be given in full at the start, or at each consultation, by cheque, BACS, cash or card transaction - whatever suits you best.
**supplements and functional testing may be recommended, and would be an additional charge.

Nutritional Therapy looks at the individual’s diet and lifestyle in order to identify and correct biochemical imbalances that may lead to body dysfunction. It works to locate the root of the problem and help the body heal itself.
A consultation enables the practitioner to make an in-depth analysis of an individual’s diet and discover those aspects that could be causing health problems.
Nutritional therapy may help conditions such as...
Migraines and headaches
Skin problems (eg, acne, eczema)
Female hormonal and menstrual imbalances
Lack of energy
Bloating, constipation, diarrhoea
Frequent colds and infections
Pregnancy and post-natal nutrition

Nutritional therapy is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, because only a drug can legally make such a claim. If you have a medical problem, please visit your doctor.
What to expect from the first consultation
The nutrition consultant will take a thorough personal history and examine the completed health check form to gain an in-depth understanding of the patient’s health concerns. When necessary, the practitioner may carry out certain physical examinations*.
A tailored diet will be recommended and, where indicated, good-quality supplementation will be suggested. Specific laboratory tests may be needed to provide a better diagnosis and to determine any biochemical imbalances or infections.
A Nutrition therapy consultation is a collaboration between the therapist and the individual. Each person will be given advice on how to help his or her body to heal itself.
At least one follow up appointment should be booked in order to fully benefit.
Tests and supplements are additional costs. These will be discussed during the consultation.
48 hours notice is required if cancelling an appointment or full fee is charged.
*NB This is not a medical check up
Important notes: A health check form and the 3-day diet diary should be completed and returned prior to the initial consultation.
The diet diary should list everything eaten and drunk from the moment of waking until the time of sleep, including anything consumed during the night.
Not everything can be discussed on the first consultation; remaining issues will be discussed in subsequent visits
The following are available if deemed necessary and can be administered through a private laboratory:
* Hair Mineral Analysis
* Candida Overgrowth
* Food sensitivities and allergies
* Vitamin and mineral balance

If you suffer with an allergic condition (food, chemical, environmental, emotional allergies), you may require NAET (allergy elimination) therapy. Visit NAET Therapy or Maria's website www.nutritionhealth.net for more details or phone 07956 662 954.
For years I was taking synthetic drugs for my under active thyroid and low progesterone levels but before I left Australia I made the decision to wean myself off the drugs and go natural or find a good NAET practitioner to treat my condition which included food and chemical sensitivities as I had undergone some treatments in Australia which I found very effective.
I arrived in London feeling very disheartened as my hormones were all over the place and I was experiencing the worst PMT.
I have been seeing Maria since July and I am really impressed and extremely happy with how much my body has balanced out hormonally and the treatments I have undergone for my food sensitivity have also cleared up.
I was so surprised to the food groups my body was not tolerating but it's wonderful to be able to eat certain foods and not react any more.
I highly recommend Maria - she is extremely thorough in her work, very knowledgeable and personable. It's amazing the progress and results I have experienced with Maria.
I was at the end of my tether when I approached Maria in 2011 for help with my health problems.
For several years I had been suffering from debilitating and excruciating menstrual cramps and heavy monthly bleeding. This had been caused by uterine fibroids which had been treated many times unsuccessfully with conventional medical treatments.
I really felt that there was nothing further that could bedone to aleviate my condition as it was progressively getting worse and I was reaching the stage that during my periods I was unable to leave the house because oft he pain, discomfort and embarassment caused by the constant bleeding.
Maria gave me hope and assurance that something could be done to help me and recommended a radical change in diet which involved cutting out all refined and processed sugars as well as dairy products. She also combined this with food allergy treatment and prescribed vitamin tablets to help restore nutrients to my body which had been lost through the heavy bleeding.
Within a few weeks of seeing Maria, I started to notice an improvement in my symptoms and I started to feel a lot more positive and confident about my health. The hormonal imbalances caused by my bad diet were starting to be corrected, and I started to feel hopeful about my future.
I found Maria to be very knowledgeable about nutritional health and I have learnt so much from her and my diet has changed for good! I don't think that I will ever go back to my bad eating habits. I would definitely recommend Maria because as well as being an expert in her field, sheis very kind and supportive which is important when you are facing health challenges.
I use CST (cranio-sacral therapy) by itself or with Nutritional advice and NAET treatments to integrate the entire body mind system at a deeper level. I notice that the body respond much more to the NAET treatments and the person feels more complete and healthier in body and mind, each time by releasing old patterns and old issue stored in the body. CST has been used for babies as soon as they come into life to help the baby system to settle into a normal rhythm and vitality. Very helpful for mothers as well as it help with rebalance the normal rhythmic motions of their system after their labour that is traumatic or not. See my website for more information.
