Profile

I am a registered dietitian with over 10 years of experience in a senior position within the NHS in Brighton. I offer private consultations for clients from the relaxing and lovely setting of my garden office. In addition to face to face consultations, I am able to offer skype/telephone/email sessions too.

I’m passionate about nutrition and the science behind it and could talk about it all day! There are many mixed messages about nutrition, more so in recent years causing much confusion. As a dietitian, I am well placed to help you decipher the media information into factual evidence based advice. This is in a practical and tailored way to suit you.

People often think dietitians are the ‘food police’ which can be off putting! Those, whom know me, often laugh at the fact I love having chocolate and chips even though I am a dietitian!  I believe life is about balance and I don’t think labeling food as “good” and “bad” is right. I do think listening to your body and mindful eating are important though.

I consider myself to be a friendly, empathetic and non-judgmental. I’m fascinated by the psychology of behaviour and believe we can all make positive changes that will ultimately help us live longer healthier lives. Little changes lead to bigger changes that ultimately become habits which are the key to sustainable behaviour.

I see a range of clients who may all have different needs, what may be considered ‘healthy’ for one person, may vary for the next depending on symptoms. My areas of particular interest are gastroenterology; Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), including tummy pains, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea etc and weight loss/gain. Below is a more comprehensive list and I am happy to discuss anything else.

-Digestive problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
-Medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease/heart health (including high cholesterol), coeliac’s
-Weight loss or gain in a safe and sensible way
-Allergy or intolerances
-General healthy eating advice
