Hi, I'm Felicity
I am a dietitian and sports nutritionist with over 20 years of experience helping individuals achieve, and maintain their health goals. My expertise in weight management has led me to work across a variety of areas: irritable bowel syndrome, eating disorders, sports nutrition, and diabetes remission. When treating an individual I work holistically, focusing on Lifestyle Medicine - the idea that all areas of your life play a part in your health and feelings of wellness.
My work is evidence based and clinically informed. I use my clinical expertise and knowledge of the latest research to help clients improve their health.
If you need help to transition to a more sustainable way of eating such as a vegan or vegetarian diet or want some support with the Low FODMAP approach to help with your gut I can help you. All options are on the table for weight change including intermittent fasting, calorie prescriptions, exercise and product based programmes. Get in touch if you would like to know more.

If you would like to have a brief telephone call in advance of booking an appointment just ping me an email. During our appointments all aspects of your life will be explored including your medical history, stresses and strains of modern living, work conditions and family situation.
Assessment: I send questionnaires in advance to collect relevant information on your current lifestyle, your medical history, any attempts you have already made to manage your condition and what has worked for you in the past. I will use this information with evidence from research to put together a strategy which will work within your lifestyle and which you think you can achieve.
In my experience, everyone can benefit from seeing a dietitian. Good nutrition can help you feel better, and look better. Good nutrition will also improve your gut health and immune system, helping your body to fulfil its potential - mentally and physically.
