Adele is a clinical Psycho-neuro-immunology (PNI) practitioner, nutrition consultant and certified Metabolic Balance coach. She has met the strict criteria required for Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) registration, as recognised by the Department of Health. CNHC is the Professional Standards body for regulation of nutrition practitioners in the UK.
Through her practice Adele is focused on optimising natural health and educating people about lifestyle-related conditions, including cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, and mental health problems arising from stress and anxiety. The most significant insight of Adele’s clinical practice is the fact that most individuals are presenting with complex metabolic and immunologic issues and that personalised nutrition and lifestyle advice has the ability to optimise health, changing people’s lives. This led to Adele’s study study in clinical Psycho-neuro-immunology (PNI), following an interest in evolutionary biology and the ancestral living habits of hunter-gatherer communities – some of which still exist today in the rain forests of South America and Southeast Asia. PNI is rooted firmly in evolutionary biology, and applied to clinical practice Adele has found it to be a very powerful therapy that helps restore the body and mind back to health by understanding and applying some of the lifestyle habits of our ‘original’ way of living through human evolution. She believes that through such understanding we can empower ourselves to deal with health challenges without the need for invasive surgery or prescription drugs.
Adele has a keen interest in ‘brain fitness’, with a focus on improving mood, memory and motivation (the 3 M’s) to maximise performance both inside and outside the workplace. Using laboratory testing, including DNA cheek swabs, Adele can provide key insights into how the brain communicates with the rest of the body and what ‘roadblocks’ may be in the way to healthful longevity. Only then can you learn how to safely manoeuvre around these obstacles and be in full control of your own health.
Adele holds private practice clinics at The Private Therapy Clinic at number 2 Harley Street in Central London and at number 49 Queen Victoria Street in the City of London. She has also been consulted as a nutrition expert for the London Sleep Centre in Harley Street – a leader in the provision of diagnostic and treatment services for people with sleep disorders and related medical and psychological conditions.
Wider experience and consultancy

In this capacity Adele has also been engaged by corporates and wellness / fitness operators to address consumer audiences on health and nutrition, including Wellness Academy, Beyond the Barriers, Mint Fitness and British Military Fitness.
