Nutrition can be so confusing. Is it 5-a-day or 10? Can I have sugar and what about fat? Is gluten all that bad? The messages keep on changing. Diet and lifestyle can play a really important part in symptom management for many conditions and as a qualified Dietitian I will cut through all of this confusion and break the science down to help you understand your own nutritional needs.
Therefore, a consultation with me will always be tailored to your needs and entirely bespoke to you.
As well as my nutrition expertise, I use a holistic approach and consider not just your current food habits and diet choices but your symptoms, your medical history, lifestyle and daily routines which all influence the decisions we make. Coupled with this, and where appropriate, we will explore your thoughts and feelings surrounding your food choices and lifestyle decisions.
Together, we then decide on the best approach for you to suit your personal circumstances. Our decisions will be backed with scientific rationale and will empower you to make lasting dietary changes.
Managing Your Weight
Having supported people with their weight for all of my career, this is an area I specialise in and love. I passionately believe you don’t have to ‘diet’ to lose weight. I don’t want you to follow another diet, I want to guide you through the science, empower you to manage your diet and lifestyle with confidence, support you to build a healthier relationship with food and guide you to make lasting changes. Therefore, I have developed a 12-week programme:
Pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause! These are all important stages in a woman’s life and all with their own nutritional considerations. I can support and guide you through these stages in a friendly and informed way to optimise your health for the future.
If you suffer with Irritable Bowel Syndrome then I can support you through the first stage advice to manage these symptoms.
Being a mum, I know only too well how challenging it can be to manage food for the family, especially if you have a fussy eater or if other family members have different dietary needs. I can give you a helping hand in working it all out and making it seem achievable.
Weaning is such an exciting time to get your little one off to a wonderful start with food. Book a consultation with me for advice, top tips and support.
Dietary Assessment and Education
Through assessing your diet, in relation to your lifestyle, I can check whether you’ve got the right balance of food groups, and therefore nutrients, to suit your dietary needs. This is important if you’ve been diagnosed with a nutritional deficiency or maybe you have chosen to lead a more plant-based diet where it’s common to miss some important micronutrients. Perhaps you’re just changing your diet for the better and want to check you’re on the right lines. Whatever your need, I can do this for you. Please Get in touch.
