About me

Need non-faddy, expert nutritional advice? I'm a friendly and empathetic Registered Dietitian, located on the Surrey/Sussex border, who can help you improve your relationship with food; empower you to change your eating habits and reach your health goals.

I translate evidence-based nutritional science... holistically with a healthy dose of pragmatism so that any dietary changes suggested will be easy for you to fit into your lifestyle... if it's not practical and sustainable, it's not going to work for you, is it?

So whether it's weight loss, muscle gain, improving IBS symptoms, improving blood glucose levels and reducing insulin resistance, managing energy levels or supporting a healthy digestive system, I'll help you to understand how your diet affects your wellbeing. I've wide-ranging experience of all areas of nutrition and dietetics, but my particular areas of specialism include:

  • weight management
  • support and advice following bariatric surgery
  • diabetes
  • cardiovascular health
  • gastrointestinal/digestive disorders
  • IBS (including the low FODMAP approach)

I offer 1-2-1 consultations in clinic (Guildford, Surrey or Billingshurst, Sussex) or via Skype/Facetime, or I can come to see you in the comfort of your own home/office if you prefer (there may be an additional fee depending on your location). Following a complimentary initial telephone chat, if I feel I am not the right nutritional expert for you, I'll signpost you to one of my specialist dietetic peers. I'm also available for teaching sessions or workshops, and any other type of consultancy work, including recipe / menu analysis and article writing.

Please see my website for further information.
