I’m Audra, a UK registered dietitian with a master’s degree (MNut) in nutrition and ten years’ experience in the NHS. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of the British Dietetic Association (BDA). Membership of specialist groups such as the Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Group and the Neurosciences Group of the BDA supports me in my practice. I have experience in many areas of dietetics, but my passion lies in nutrition support (oral and enteral), particularly with the elderly and people living with neuro-degenerative conditions. It was a genuine interest in nutrition and caring about people that led me to do my nutrition degree as a mature student, which led to me gain the privileged title of Dietitian.

Dietitians are uniquely qualified to translate the science of nutrition into information that everyone can relate to. I enjoy tailoring this to client’s individual needs and preferences. I have experience working in a variety of settings including hospital wards, GP clinics, care homes, client’s own homes and a large mental health hospital. I am highly skilled in communicating on a one to one basis and running group education programs. I am also fully competent in menu analysis and modification. Currently, I am fortunate to be managing a team of dietitians working for the NHS in the community, as well as running my private practice. What I really enjoy however, is getting to know people and helping them through periods of ill health with simple dietary modifications.

For face to face consultations I cover Bedfordshire and parts of Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Cambridgeshire but for clients further afield I am happy to provide telephone/Skype consultations and support via email.
