Let’s take the stress, guilt and shame out of eating!

Click here to grab my free e-book!

You deserve to enjoy food, no matter your body size or medical condition. I help you develop a positive relationship with food and your body while improving both your physical and mental health.

Who I work with:

  • Those diagnosed with a chronic health condition and looking for support beyond diets and weight loss
  • Those who eating is causing stress, guilt and shame and want to find peace with food and their body

It’s time to ditch dieting and find food freedom with my evidence-based approach to a healthier relationship with food, improved physical and mental health.

Chronic disease packages cover:

  • Explore your health condition from a holistic perspective rather than a weight centric perspective
  • Explore weight science and food science to understand what may be realistic or achievable
  • Focus on things you can change and those that will improve your health through reduced stress, improved body image, movement, self care and eating behaviours

Food Freedom packages cover:

  • Explore the impact of dieting on your health, understand weight science and work towards respecting your body
  • Developing trust and awareness with your hunger and fullness cues rather than fighting against them 
  • Understand the link between your emotions and food as well as considering other coping mechanisms
  • Understanding movement for health and finding activities you enjoy


I am trained in intuitive eating through Evelyn Tribole’s official PRO course as well as courses in mindful eating and non-diet approaches. I work closely with you through my online platform with video appointments and plenty of follow up in between. You will not be alone.

My experience:

  • Completed a master of Dietetics at Deakin University in Melbourne Australia, 2012.
  • Worked as a clinical dietitian in hospitals in Australia and the UK with years of NHS experience. I have worked with clients from a broad range of clinical areas including stroke and rehab, oncology and chronic diseases.
  • Developed and ran a HIV dietetic clinic in a major London Hospital 2019
  • I completed training and supervision in non-diet approaches from 2018-2020
  • I set up Foodi Nutrition in 2019 to offer clients a service that supported their needs, free of weight stigma, shame or judgement in a safe, comfortable location

There’s a whole lot of activity going on behind the scenes within our bodies.
