Five Minutes with Jodie Abrahams, Nutritionist at All Points North

The Harley Street BID is made up of an array of fantastic businesses, organisations and practices.
Each month, we spend some time getting to know one of the people that call Harley Street home.

This month we’re meeting Jodie Abrahams, Nutritionist at All Points North.


Can you tell us a little bit about your work at All Points North

I am a Nutritionist, providing one-to-one nutritional therapy and I also run group sessions to educate our patients on how nutrition and lifestyle changes can benefit their physical and mental wellbeing.

As part of a multi-disciplinary team, I work closely with our head of fitness, consultant psychiatrist, psychotherapist and couples therapist – as well as a number of other practitioners – to provide joined up, 360 support to our patients.

Describe your average day.

My average day will include meeting with clients either for nutrition assessments or follow up consultations. Each consultation results in a tailored plan for the patient, so time is spent writing these and making recommendations based on where they are currently at.

I am also developing a new programme to support women’s mind-body health. As part of that I meet with other practitioners in the team to coordinate the support they will offer to patients in the programme.

Twice a week, I run lunchtime group sessions. These cover everything from nutrition to support recovery from burnout, to how nutrition can contribute to more balanced mood.

How did you get to where you are today?

I started my career in education – first in educational media, then as a teacher, then working for a youth arts programme. I trained in nutrition following my own transformational experience of working with a nutritional therapist. My work is hugely informed by my education background. I passionately believe in supporting people to become the experts on their own bodies – not only with knowledge, but also with practical tools. I qualified in 2015 and since then have been running my own private nutrition practice and working as a consultant for brands, corporates and publications. I joined APN London in summer 2023.

How has Covid-19 impacted your organisation?

All Points North London opened in April 2023, and I joined at the end of June. So although our organisation wasn’t operating during lockdown, the effect of it has influenced how we work.

While it is wonderful to be able to see clients face to face again, the pandemic also moved a lot of therapeutic work online, and it’s great to be able to still offer this as an option to patients who need more flexibility with how they access our services.

What do you like most about being based on Harley Street?

Meeting professionals from other specialisms is a real highlight for me. I have made valuable connections with incredible practitioners from disciplines outside of my own, who I have learnt from

and developed relationships with. I can’t think of any other area where I would have had this same opportunity.

What are your thoughts on the future of the Harley Street Area?

I think the future of the Harley Street Area is one of exciting collaborations. In the few months I have been working here, I have seen so much opportunity for connecting and collaborating between professionals working in different health disciplines. It’s great to be forming new relationships and finding ways of working together to support patients holistically through joint ventures and cross-referrals.

How does the Harley Street BID support your business?

The Harley Street BID helps to keep the area feeling safe and clean for our patients, which is invaluable. They have also been hugely supportive in helping to promote our talks and events to other professionals in the area; helping us to form connections with the Harley Street community.

How could a visitor to the area spend their time here?

It’s a really nice place to just walk around, with lots of variety – from the green space of Regents Park to the shops and restaurants on Marylebone High Street, which has a villagey feel, even though it’s in central London.

As a nutritionist, I could spend hours in John Bell & Croyden – they have an incredible range of nutritional supplements and stock beautiful skincare and wellness products too.

Any particular recommendations or hidden gems?

I love the history of the area, so for me, hidden gems are all the blue plaques on buildings that you can notice just by looking up – they tell a story of the area’s past and all the influential people who have lived and worked here, which is fascinating.

I also like wandering down the little mews dotted all around, and exploring routes off the beaten path.

If you could describe the Harley Street area in three words, what would they be?

Collaborative, influential, inspiring
