A LITTLE ABOUT M+E
Meet Evelyn Montgomery, founder of pioneering nutritional supplement brand, M+E
My academic story reflects my primary drivers to heal + to keep learning. In the first place to make sense of my life + how I was feeling.
Travelling in Africa for a year after leaving school helped me to start putting my own jigsaw together. Learning about myself + why I reacted to people + events in a way that I wanted to change started my exploration of Psychology.
I went on to study at university successfully completing a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (BSc (Hons)), and going on to become a member of The British Psychological Society (MBPsS). Then wanting to apply my research to help heal my life + to help others I went on to study Life Coaching, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Counselling and Psychotherapy, becoming a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), while bringing up my young family.
Nutritional Psychology became my area of special interest. This is the study of how what we eat directly affects the structure + function of our brains which impacts on our moods, how we feel + how we think. I call it Mood Nutrition.
After working for the NHS, at the University of Surrey and at Grayshott Medical Spa I set up a private practice in 2015. I now work as an Integrative therapist incorporating Nutrient Therapy along with my counselling and coaching approaches.
Helping my clients to be able to lift their mood, reduce their anxiety + boost their energy by eating good mood foods + taking supplements filled them with feelings of self-control, empowerment + hope.
Biohacking my own mental health also included becoming aware of my feelings + emotions + staying with them or letting them go, learning about breathing + visualisation exercises, exploring which physical exercise worked for me, getting outside in nature regularly, finding creativity + fun + connection in groups, + underlying all of this was developing my self-acceptance + self-care.
Looking at myself from 360º
My mission is to empower you to build your beautiful brain + to optimise your well-being with nutrients + self-care.
