Daniel O’Shaughnessy was born into a family where good nutrition was at centre stage in the household so naturally Daniel’s love for good food began at an early age. His mother was a successful coach for a popular weight loss company and this really fuelled his interest in nutrition.
It was not until finishing university after studying a degree in Criminal Justice with Law that he decided to follow a career in addiction. Working as a therapist for over 6 years, Daniel assisted individuals recovering from drug and alcohol issues. After seeing the power of nutrition within the body and its impact on his clients, Daniel decided that this was his real passion and he went on to study Nutritional Therapy at the world-renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition.
Daniel has received training in gastro-intestinal health problems, the nutritional management of energy imbalances, female hormone imbalances (including fertility, PMS, menopause), mood swings, dermatological (skin) health, immune health, and helping to address body composition and weight management needs.
Daniel is also the Communications Director for The British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy. He brings to the role passion and enthusiasm, joining a fantastic team aiming to make Nutritional Therapy a primary healthcare option.
Daniel is a fully-qualified Nutritional Therapist, a full member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy, and is also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the only register for Nutritional Therapy recognised by the Department of Health.
