Ali Dorgan 
Cork

Nutritionist 

I am a qualified Neuromuscular Therapist teaching mobility classes and doing 1:1 hands on treatments. I am also a Nutritional Therapist working 1:1 and also providing some workshops. I support athletes with sports specific nutrition to help them compete and recover well. I also work with people who have health issues ranging from gut issues, auto immune health issues and Thyroid health issues. My approach to any health issue is from a Functional Medicine model; linking all areas of health to improve symptoms and vitality for the client. I love cooking and food and like to bring a wholefood approach to client’s well-being. My interest in Nutrition originally stemmed from sporting interests. I have competed in sport internationally and nationally in a variety of sports and continue to have a passion for movement and exercise. Pulling on previous experience of working in Family Support I like to use empathy and empower clients to develop lifetime skills and habits which are easy to follow.

Nutritionist 

Nutritional Therapist with a keen interest in thyroid health that developed while still studying for my NT degree and became my speciality after two of my close family members were diagnosed with autoimmune thyroid disease. I've been working for the past few years with people dealing with all sorts of thyroid issues, but also with other imbalanced processes in the body that indirectly impact thyroid health, like digestion, stress or blood sugar regulation. For the past year I've also become moderator of the Hashimoto Romania group, with which I organise informative webinars, Q&As or conferences related to thyroid.

Ann Ahern
18 Westcliffe, Ballincollig,

Cork

Nutritionist 

I have always had a passion for food and have seen both the positive and negative effects it can have. For years, I did not live a healthy lifestyle and suffered the consequences not just on my weight but also on my energy and my outlook on life. Personal thyroid problems and a family illness took me on a journey to nutritional therapy. I decided to embark on a career in nutrition, not only to teach myself how to eat healthy but also to have a positive effect on my family's life. Putting my learnings into practice has not only meant a stable and healthy weight but has also resulted in increased energy and vitality for life. My true passion is people and the ability to help others make positive and effective changes through food. I provide my clients with achievable, tailored nutrition plans designed to address their specific health conditions and motivate them to achieve their long-term health goals. Not only do I provide realistic, easy to follow, tasty recipes and eating plans, I ensure my clients stay on track and are able to incorporate changes into their lives successfully.
