About Claudette Lucien

First things first: I love to eat, and believe food is one of the great pleasures in life.
As a South African used to life outdoors, I am also passionate about health, wellbeing and being able to fully enjoy all of life.

That’s why after more than 12 years working in the financial industry in London and Zurich I have retrained as a Nutritional Therapist.

My training enables me to take a multidisciplinary approach and tailor it to your individual needs.
