Angharad Banner, Registered Dietitian & Nutrition Consultant
I am an award winning Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Consultant with over 18 years experience. I run clinics in the Vale of Glamorgan and offer Skype consultations for clients living further afield. Family and individual dietary assessments and recommendations can all be done remotely with practical advice to help you and your family meet current nutritional guidelines.
I specialise in babies, children and young adults but with an increasing demand for adult services I see older clients too depending on the nutritional issue.
The types of patients I see include those with suspected cow's milk allergy, constipation, faddy/fussy eating, eating disorders and families wishing to make healthier food choices. Please email or ring me and I can discuss your requirements and arrange an appointment for you. I am listed as a private practitioner on the beat (beating eating disorders) website: www.b-eat.co.uk.
The appointment letter and invoice, and a food diary (if indicated) are all emailed to you prior to the appointment. Appointments are usually for one hour and cost £85/session. An initial appointment for a suspected/confirmed eating disorder will usually last 90 mins and these are charged at £100/session.
I am a regular guest speaker for health visiting and GP events on topics such as obesity, vitamins, constipation and cows milk allergy. If you have a topic in mind then please get in touch.

Consultancy rates: £100/hour and £300/day
