About me

I am a multi-award winning IBS Dietician based in Cardiff with over 20 years' experience. I offer expert advice using the low FODMAP diet approach. I have a wide range of experience, but my main area of expertise is the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other digestive issues. I can advise and support you using the low FODMAP diet approach. Usually just 2 sessions are necessary for most people.  All sessions are currently online, so I can advise IBS sufferers around the UK.

Information about health conditions (*)

Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.

Further information

Since the pandemic and different ways of working, I have found that online consultations work well. So, currently all consultations are via online platforms: Zoom, Teams, Skype and even WhatsApp.

We can speak first by telephone to ensure that I'm able to help and then we can agree how we take things forward. I'll send some books in the post and we can work through them together during your online consultations. Usually only 2 sessions are needed for most people. 

Call today for your free telephone consultation - no obligation to proceed.
