Based in Leicester, I provide evidence based dietary advice tailored to your individual needs. I am a HCPC Registered Dietitian, currently working as an NHS Community Dietitian in Nottinghamshire, but I also practice as a Freelance Dietitian 1 day a week. I love what I do and will go out of my way to support individuals to make diet and lifestyle changes to benefit their health.
My role within the NHS means I see a wide variety of patients, many with long term health conditions. One of the areas I feel very passionate about is IBS, where I have experienced first-hand the dramatic effect that this can have on an individual’s quality of life. I am trained in both 1st and 2nd line IBS dietary management, which includes the Low FODMAP diet, which evidence has shown could improve symptoms by up to 70%.
Other areas I cover in my freelance work include Weight Management (weight loss programme available), Dementia, Heart Health, COPD, Coeliac Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Gastrointestinal Conditions, and Nutritional Support (for unintentional weight loss). This is not an exhaustive list of services which I offer. I am also an accredited BDA ‘Work Ready’ Dietitian, allowing me to work with organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of their workforce.
I feel nutrition is far too complicated at times so my motto is 'keeping nutrition simple'.
Please contact me via email or telephone with your enquiry. I offer a FREE 15 min chat to ensure I can meet your requirements.
