About me

I am a registered Dietitian with the Health and Care Professions Council. I am passionate about all areas of nutrition and healthy eating, and base my private practice on 3 core principles: knowledge, professionalism and client-centered care. I have experience in a wide range of nutrition and dietetics, and my specialist clinical expertise includes:

  • Preconception and pregnancy

  • Nutrition for infants and pre school children

  • Food allergy and food intolerance

  • Digestive problems, including the low FODMAP diet for the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Through my private practice, Your Private Dietitian, I offer one to one consultations in clinic, by telephone and by Skype. I also provide a computerised dietary analysis service which will provide you with a detailed report of the nutritional composition of your diet and how this corresponds to your estimated nutritional requirements.

Training, qualifications & experience

MSc Allergy (University of Southampton – ongoing)

MSc Advanced Clinical Practice in Paediatric Dietetics (University of Plymouth, 2015)

Clinical experience

Whilst working in the NHS I gained experience with adult patients in a range of clinical specialties including care of the elderly, nutrition support, surgery, weight management, women’s and maternal health, and gastroenterology, before specialising in paediatric dietetics. After developing my knowledge and skills in general paediatrics I then went on to further specialise in ketogenic diets and paediatric gastroenterology, with a particular interest in intestinal failure. I have been the clinical dietetic lead for both these specialities and have managed the dietetic care of many children with a wide range of medical and nutritional conditions within these specialties.
