I am unlike any dietitian you have ever met. I know that there is a wealth of free information available off of the internet….so why would anyone pay to see a dietitian?
My passion is giving highly personalised advice and getting to the root of whatever diet-related or medical issue you may be struggling with. For example, if you want to lose weight, we won’t just talk about your food intake and physical activity level. We will also discuss your stress levels, medication, how you are sleeping and how motivated you feel. If you want to gain weight, I will also ask you about nausea, medication, taste changes, swallowing problems, anxiety and depression (in addition to talking about food and physical activity). Initial assessments take approximately 75 minutes where I collect information about your medical history, medication and many of the issues mentioned above. From that, I can almost always determine what the underlying problem is (it may or may not have anything to do with what you are eating) and I can either provide advice on the spot, ask your GP to run additional tests and/or refer you to other professionals and resources that can help. My comprehensive approach means I can usually help people who haven’t been successful with other diet and nutrition programs, such as those with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, thyroid problems, chronic fatigue, and people taking psychiatric medication.
If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression or comfort eating, I even offer optional “mind-body” packages for people who want to deal with their mindset around food and the reasons why they eat, while also addressing what they eat. These packages include appointments with both myself and one of my select therapists or psychologists. We then work together to provide you with the best and most comprehensive care possible. This is a very unique service because very few (if any) private dietitians in the UK work together with psychology. That means we can even help people who struggle with emotional eating, binge eating, people who have regained weight following bariatric surgery and people who are underweight due to anxiety.
Looking for a meal plan? I’m happy to provide that, but I always work together with you so that it only includes foods that you like and so that you can hear my thought process which will allow you to make your own changes to the plan in the future. I believe more in “mix and match” meal ideas as opposed to a rigid meal plan because it is more flexible and is much easier to fit into your life.
Looking for someone to hold you accountable to what you say you are going to do? I offer that as well. Most of my packages come with weekly “check ins” and unlimited email support. It is easy to get off track if no one else knows what you are trying to accomplish. So consider me your “accountability buddy” — someone who will check in with you regularly, cheer you on when things go well, and give you a gentle nudge when you get off track. I’m also there to coach you through the plateaus, vacations, parties and meals out so that you can get results while still enjoying your life.
Let’s be sure that my approach is what you are looking for and that you are going to feel comfortable and confident working with me. Please get in touch for a no-obligation discussion about your specific needs and how I can help. I am committed to assisting you in any way that I can, even if it means referring you on to someone else. You can reach me at 07787 603863 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also check out my reviews at here. I look forward to working with you!
My clinic in Sutton Coldfield runs on Friday plus two Sunday mornings each month.
I also offer two clinics a month in Kenilworth — on the first Tuesday and the third Thursday of every month.
