I am a registered dietitian with over 20 years experience of working in weight management. I was the lead dietitian in several NHS specialist weight management services supporting people with severe weight problems so I understand what a difficult, complex and frustrating challenge managing weight can be.
I set up my private practice, Relish Nutrition Consultancy, in 2017 and provide face to face consultations for people living nearby [Leeds & North/West Yorkshire area] or for those further afield, telephone or Skype is available. I can provide support and guidance on the skills and strategies needed to improve your health and achieve a better relationship with food, eating and weight. I have a particular interest in mindful eating and the role it can play in helping people overcome chronic yo yo dieting.
I regularly deliver training/workshops/conference presentations and given my background in nutrition research I can guide towards the latest evidence based treatments and help to separate nutrition fact from fiction.
Areas of specialist interest include:
Weight management, pre and post bariatric surgery, cardiovascular disease, PCOS, fertility, menopause, type 2 diabetes
I have published a number of academic papers and two books, a cognitive behavioural therapy approach to managing weight and a guide for health professionals on how best to manage obesity.
I am a member of the British Dietetic Association, the Health and Care Professions Council, the Association for the Study of Obesity and the Freelance Dietitians Group.
