Profile

I am a Highly Specialised Paediatric Dietitian, with 13 years experience within the NHS and private sector, currently working at The Royal Manchester Children’ Hospital, one of the leading children’s hospitals in the country. Prior to this I worked for several years at Alderhey Children’s Hospital.

Specialities covered:

-Cows Milk and/or Soya Protein Intolerance
-Behavioural eating issues
-Feeding difficulties in Autism
-Lactose Intolerance
-Constipation/Diarrhoea
-Toddler Diarrhoea
-Fructose Intolerance
-Coeliac Disease
-Weaning advice
-Food refusal
-Fussy eating
-Restrictive/unvaried diet
-Faltering growth/Failure to thrive
-Poor appetite and/or weight loss
-Overweight
-Nutritional Deficiencies such as iron deficiency
-Healthy Eating and General Nutrition
-Nutritional Dietary Assessment of your Child’s Diet
-Advice for nurseries/schools

I provide an individualised approach. My appointments are within my home, providing a homely environment for you and your child. However, if you feel a home visit to observe a mealtime experience would be helpful then this is no problem at all. I feel home visits are extremely useful especially at mealtimes to evaluate a ‘true’ reflection of mealtimes and advise regarding your child’s dietary intake and behaviour around mealtimes.

I also work closely with Dr Heidi Mason, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, who has specialist experience of working with children with additional needs and behavioural feeding difficulties. If it is felt that your child would benefit from a joint consultation with myself and Dr Heidi Mason then this can be arranged.

I also work closely with a private Paediatric Gastroenterologist of whom I provide a private dietetic service for.
