I’m a friendly and empathetic Registered Dietitian, who can help you improve your relationship with food; empower you to change your eating habits and reach your health goals.
I translate evidence-based nutritional science… holistically with a healthy dose of pragmatism so that any dietary changes suggested (and agreed by you) are designed to fit into your lifestyle… if it’s not practical and sustainable, it’s not going to work for you, is it?
So whether it’s weight loss, muscle gain, improving IBS symptoms, improving blood glucose levels and reducing insulin resistance, managing energy levels or supporting a healthy digestive system, I’ll help you to understand how your diet affects your wellbeing. Whilst I’ve wide-ranging experience of all areas of nutrition and dietetics, my particular areas of specialism include:
- weight management
- support and advice following bariatric surgery
- cardiovascular health
- gastrointestinal/digestive disorders
- IBS (including the low FODMAP approach)
I’m also available for teaching sessions or workshops, and any other type of consultancy work, including recipe/menu analysis and article writing.
As a media spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, you may occasionally see me pop up on TV, radio or in printed media giving comment or advice on nutritional issues.
