******************************************************************************************************************************************

Hello I am Susan. I am a modern thinking dietitian with immense passion and drive for my profession. Are you looking for a dietitian to complete a project, deliver, training or a work-shop? Are you you seeking expert nutritional advice for a condition? Contact me today to find out how I can help you.

I studied a 4 year degree in Nutrition & Dietetics at The University of Surrey, one of the Uk’s Top 10 Universities. I have vast experience working in a range of clinical settings from GP surgeries, Hospitals and clinics. I began my career in private practice along side a part-time role as a Consultant Dietitian specialising in Adult Obesity. I then moved on to work as an acute dietitian within a busy NHS hospital where I furthered my clinical skills and medical knowledge. Since working within the NHS I took on the role as a mental health dietitian (which I love!).

I work with many conditions and disorders including: ASD, Depression, Anxiety, Anorexia Nervosa and more. I believe Psychology is at the heart of my practice and I always strive to treat every client holistically.

Why I chose Private Practice

I really enjoy working privately as it enables me to deliver flexible hours including an out of hours service, which is not something the NHS currently offers. Private practice also enables me to see clients for follow up appointments more frequently with shorter waiting times; this is particularly important if a client needs extra support. The extra time and support that I am able to give to my clients makes a real difference to their lives which is what I love about private practice.

Dietetics is my passion

Diet and health has always been a passion of mine. I believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but we do not always consider the preventative measures until we become sick.

We are heavily reliant on medications to treat a problem however, some health problems can only be treated through dietary interventions. Diet plays a crucial role in the prevention and treatment of disease. Many people seek alternative treatment other than medication to treat a problem and sometimes conventional treatments do not work. You can rest assured that the advice I give you is scientific and evidence-based. I can give you a professional unbiased opinion on whether your health issue can be treated through diet. Contact me today to find out how I can help you.
