INTRODUCING PIVOT WELLBEING
PROVIDING NUTRITION AND PILATES SERVICES
Hi, I’m Jennifer, a UK registered Dietitian and STOTT PILATES® certified Instructor. Like many of my fellow zebra’s, I live with a number of chronic disorders. I have hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, POTS, dysautonomia, Endometriosis, Adenomyosis and I’ve had surgeries for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. After I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, everything fell into place as to why I felt like I did and why I was in so much pain. I became focused on researching and finding out what I could do to help myself and make myself feel better.
I’m lucky, as a dietitian and pilates instructor, I had the skills to help myself and with help from a team of professionals, I’m feeling better than I have in a long time.
It’s not too much to ask for a better quality of life, one with reduced pain, less fatigue, better sleep, improved movement and a chance to enjoy living life with the people you love. We all deserve to feel better.
I can help you to:
Build a nutritionally adequate diet
Optimise your diet to reduce chronic pain and fatigue
Get relief from symptoms such as stomach ache, IBS, acid reflux, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and nausea
Develop a positive relationship with food
Choose the right supplements
Sort fact from fiction
Define realistic goals
I am available to see clients with:
Ehlers Danlos syndrome
Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder
I offer virtual Dietetic consultations and pilates sessions. Please get in touch if you'd like to arrange a dietetic consultation or arrange a pilates session.
I look forward to helping you soon,
Type of Support: Dietetic Consultation
"Jennifer has been incredibly supportive of my autistic teenage daughter who approached Jennifer for expert help with her diet; in particular with weight gain and re-educating herself about restrictive eating. My daughter shared with me that she appreciates Jennifer's non-judgemental approach because she provides a safe place to be open about how she feels about food and eating. My daughter has struggled with this for several years and I can see progress with Jennifer.
Thank you Jennifer for your support, persistence and your kind approach."

PILATES IN THE WORKPLACE
Pilates in the workplace is a great way to improve staff wellbeing.
Pilates at work provides staff with a much needed break, incorporates exercise into their day and these pilates classes also use mindful movement and breathing, all useful in reducing and managing stress.
These classes are designed for mixed abilities with adaptations for injuries and conditions.
The benefits of Pilates are:
Improved flexibility and coordination
Increased energy levels
Stress management and relaxation
