Thank you for selecting my profile. I am a registered children’s dietitian with over 20 years’ clinical experience in the NHS, and with particular expertise in food allergies and gastrointestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease.

I have a BSc Honours degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and a Masters Degree in Applied Paediatric Nutrition from Southampton University. I also have a Diploma in Child Psychology and significant experience in dealing with children with feeding behaviour problems.

I am registered with The British Dietetic Association and Health Care Professions Council and a member of the British Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition and the Food Allergy and Intolerance Specialist Group of the British Dietetic Association. I am also a mother to two great boys so have plenty of personal experience!
