Meet the Team

At Nutrition by Charlotte Hunter, we know the power and wonders of being a woman. But we also know and acknowledge the struggles. Sometimes owning a uterus is a rough gig. 

So, I branched out to find the best in the industry and created a super-team brimming with know-how about how to manage all things female. 

From menopause mastery to endometriosis management, to fertility and polycystic ovaries, we’ve joined forces to quit the BS and show you how to own your femininity. 

Meet Charlotte - Founder of Charlotte Hunter, Menopause Nutritionist

I, too, felt like my body was punishing me for being a woman. 
Seriously, I’ve been there and got the t-shirt. And I launched a nutrition therapy business to prove it. 

Before my womb decided I was due a break and blessing me with 2 lovely boys, I suffered continuously. I’ve gone through endometriosis, PCOS, and infertility. And it was relentless. One thing after the other, just because I had female reproduction organs. 

And it got worse. After having my two boys, ongoing adenomyosis and cervical issues worsened. So the solution was simple.
I had a total hysterectomy at the age of 44. 

What followed was full-on menopause. Literally overnight. 

But because of my nutritional expertise, I managed to navigate through the menopausal storm. I was lucky. The know-how was my ship. And it was that vessel that got me through. But I know so many women don’t have this ship. Instead, they have a rowing boat. And what chance does a rowing boat have against the anger and rage of the menopausal storm? 

With very little guidance and support, it’s just you and your lack of control. It’s lonely. 
Even with the right advice and community, menopause is a challenging time in any woman’s life. Can you imagine what it’s like without any help?

That’s why I help women kick menopause’s butt!

I became a Nutritional Therapist back in 2010 after graduating from the University of West London. That was when I started exploring my purpose, helping men, women, and children eat well and feel better, knocking down the belief that you can choose only one: eat healthily or eat tastily. The more health conditions I found nutritional solutions for, the clearer my purpose was. And that’s what lead me to right here, right now, with you. 

As women, we both know how our bodies can be ruled by our hormones. So, isn’t it smarter to stand with them as allies rather than an endless cycle of battle? So, I use nutritional therapy to solidify that allegiance, helping you balance out your hormones and work alongside them for a better life, no longer ruled by your hormones after menopause strikes. Functional testing is my jam. I help practitioners choose the right test for their patients, and work with them to piece together the puzzle from the results. 

And that’s me. 

A pina colada drinking, capybara lover, and mother of two miracle children who I love more than anything in the world. 

And I’m here to help you navigate through the dark and dreary menopause storm, so you can see the light and start living again. 

See what women like yourself, have to say about Charlotte

My prayers were answered when I met Charlotte in 2018. Right from the very first appointment, I felt so at ease speaking to her and had such faith in her being able to help me. Finally, someone was listening to me and understating me; there was light at the end of the tunnel!

As soon as I started the programme, I felt better and had much more energy. If I feel tired now, it's what I call normal tiredness, and I know it's because I've had a late night and not enough sleep. One thing I've noticed since being on the plan is the importance of getting my sleep!⁠

Charlotte has looked after me for about two years, from when I rang and pleaded with her to ‘help me and not to let go until I was better. I knew it would be a long haul and require an extremely competent, experienced practitioner. Charlotte has proved she is all of those things. ⁠

Meet Fiona - A registered Nutritional Therapist

Digestive issues have been the crux of my life since I was a teenager. When I entered my 30’s, I recognised that it was affecting my social life. Left unchecked, it led to immune dysfunction and infertility.

I was determined to find a loophole. That’s what led me to nutritional therapy. I changed my diet radically, learning what food would help my condition and better my chances of having a child. 

Nutritional therapy helped me conceive my daughter in my 40’s. And for that, I will never doubt the power of choosing the right food to put in your body. Knowing there were countless women looking for a loophole out of infertility spurred me to study for 4 years at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition. 

Since then, I’ve had the privilege of supporting people in taking control of their health. Watching the positive impact this has had on their lives is the most fulfilling part of my job.  

I rebalance your gut, liver, immune system, and hormones with diet and lifestyle changes to lessen the severity of your symptoms and replenish your energy levels. 

With nutritional therapy, you can embrace your menopause, eat well and finally feel like you again.

Meet Clare - A registered Nutritional Therapist

It all began when I qualified as a nurse in the 90’s. I have always loved helping and caring for people, so being a nurse was a natural step. Working on Intensive Care whilst raising my gorgeous 3 children was tough enough, but when my youngest child suffered digestive issues, it really took its toll on us as a family. His daily temper tantrums caused exhaustion and severe fatigue between both of us. The medical professionals were puzzled as to what was wrong and weren’t able to offer a solution. 

So, I decided to make it my mission to find out all I could to make him well again. The more I dug, the more I fell in love with nutritional therapy. After finding so much exciting information, I enrolled at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition.

During my studies, symptoms of perimenopause hit me like a truck – it was like I was on a hormonal rollercoaster, and I hadn’t even bought a ticket! So, I combined the knowledge I’d found from the nutritional treasure hunt I’d been on for years with the experiences of perimenopause I was going through. 

I help women glide seamlessly into the menopause by educating and inspiring changes in their lifestyle and their diet. But everybody has a different treasure map. So, we all need to hunt in different directions. That’s half the fun! 

My treatment plans are highly personalised and are shaped and formed around data and evidence, combining listening, empathy, and science. I’ll forever be fascinated by the way food can have such a groundbreaking effect on our health and wellbeing. 

Working with Clare

“I had suspected that the menopause was on its way for a number of years - my cycle was shortened and erratic, and a week before my period I would have headaches, low mood, and disrupted sleep. 

This year, however, I was hit by the menopause express train: every day, hot flashes, and severely disrupted sleep. I would sit at my desk with sweat pouring down my body. I would wake up to four times a night, often not managing to return to anything resembling restful sleep. In short, I was desperate.

A rant to a friend brought me to Clare Kennedy. 

I had never seen a nutritionist before, but I was willing to give anything a try. 
If you had asked me before I saw Clare whether I thought it would work, I would probably have given an optimistic but ultimately skeptical response. 

In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that the programme I undertook with Clare has changed my life. 
I have emerged with no hot flashes, massively improved sleep, and more energy than I can remember having for at least a decade.

Clare is knowledgeable, pragmatic, down-to-earth, and full of compassion and understanding. 
She works at your own pace and provides individualised support along the way. 

I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone having their own issues with the menopause. In fact, I believe that if every woman of a certain age was able to benefit from Clare's experience, the world would be a much better and happier place!”
