Benjamin Cooper, Nutritional Therapist

Ben is a fully registered Nutritional Therapist having qualified with the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition.
Ben takes a holistic approach to his work with clients. Not only assessing their nutrition, but all other aspects of their lives and what could be contributing towards their unwanted symptoms. This approach is driven by the diversity of Ben’s education in nutrition, exercise and mental wellbeing.
Ben has spent almost 15 years working within the health industry. Notably, Ben first appreciated the complexity of the human body whilst lecturing aboard luxury cruise liners in Australasia. Ben spent a year lecturing on topics such as nutrition, detoxification and exercise physiology. Back on dry land Ben has spent the past 10 years in London implementing his holistic approach to human health with 100s of clients, each with their individual requirements.
Bens approach to fertility focuses on the details. Ben’s clients are usually doing everything they can to increase their own fertility, whereas Ben is able to look deeper at the underlying mechanisms and addressing those through diet, lifestyle and supplemental support. Ben utilises comprehensive hormonal tests such as the DUTCH test (Dried Urine test for comprehensive hormones) to assess his female client’s hormonal status, as well as how their bodies are metabolising hormones.
Ben has successfully helped clients with PCOS, PMS, going through IVF treatment and pregnancies through dietary optimisation, stress management strategies, nutritional deficiencies, as well as exercise and training methodology.

Ariela Margulies, Psychotherapist

Ariela is a registered UKCP psychotherapist, with over 10 years’ clinical experience, having completed the Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Integrative psychotherapy at Regent’s University London. Over the course of her experience Ariela has worked in charities, a publicly funded treatment facility, and an institution of higher education, whilst maintaining a private practice.

As an integrative psychotherapist Ariela draws from several modalities namely that of the Psychodynamic and the Humanistic traditions as well as being influenced by Existential thought. Each client is an individual, and the approach reflects this core belief.

People involved in fertility treatments can often experience different types of pressure and stress, and may find themselves needing a non judgemental and private forum to explore how this impacts upon them, and their relationships. Ariela provides a safe space to explore and contain the emotions that emerge wherever a patient is on their fertility journey. This is especially pertinent in regard to experiences of loss.

Psychotherapy can offer the opportunity to understand how to initiate better regimens of self care whilst we may also explore methods with which to manage your anxiety; this is key to addressing stress on both body and mind.
