more about hannah
After receiving a Diploma in Acting from London’s prestigious Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, Hannah went on to gain a First Class Honours Degree in Theatre Production from London South Bank University. Upon graduation, she was awarded the Royal National Theatre Student Award in 2009 and was privileged enough to be invited back to be a lecturer. Hannah immersed herself in the world of theatre working in London, Edinburgh and New York. Everyone has a story that brings them to discover the importance of nutrition, and this was it for Hannah. Late nights and long hours led to a black coffee lifestyle more disco than dynamic yoga.
Inevitably burnout followed, as well as troublesome hormonal and endocrine issues suffering from PCOS, Endometriosis and ezcema. But what also followed out of this was an understanding that nutrition plays a leading role when it comes to your health and happiness. The right guidance can be just the tonic to navigate the complexities of modern life, and it was at this point Hannah embarked on her journey to qualify as a Nutritional Therapist and heal herself so that she could reclaim her health and become a mum.
