Felicity Lyons RD MBDA
Hi, I'm Felicity and I am a very experienced dietitian of 20 years. I am also a mum of 2 boys 13, and 16, and a Sports Nutritionist. My specialist area is Weight Management; weight issues are often coupled with other conditions such as diabetes or an irritable bowel - all health matters are considered to move forward. Being interested in weight management means you not only have to understand the latest research, but also have to be aware of the latest fad or fashion when it comes to losing (or indeed gaining) weight. I like to consider my Weight Management Programmes as clinically informed i.e. I use my clinical expertise and knowledge of the latest research to help clients manage their weight better.
I am also aware that my clients may like to try something different. I am an accredited practitioner of the Counterweight Plus Programme which is a Low-Calorie Liquid Diet Programme guaranteeing 15kg weight loss. The results really are amazing and coupled with embedded positive lifestyle habits it is absolutely possible to maintain that fantastic weight loss. It is my job to keep my client safe and to liaise with other health professionals as required. You can rest assured I will always have your best interests at heart and do my utmost to ensure you feel supported whilst attending my appointments. We all need support and professional help to ensure we meet our weight and health targets.
I love being active with walking and yoga my preferred habits - also enjoy occasional bouts of hula hooping and I have just hired a rower so we'll see where that takes me!
I love cooking and am lucky enough to have a French boyfriend who is an amazing chef, and from whom I learn so much about how to make healthier foods look and taste delicious. For the French particularly, presentation is SO important.
So if you are interested in working with me to manage your current weight better please get in touch, as I would really like to help.

It is always best to have a brief telephone consultation in advance of booking an appointment regarding your particular condition. It helps to create a rapport and aid my understanding of the level of support and guidance you may require. Different conditions and concerns require more appointments than others, and sometimes two sessions are all that is necessary to set you on the road to optimum nutrition and a better lifestyle. Other times more appointments are required but can be spaced out over time to ensure you are implementing goals we have agreed and they are having an effect.
During your initial Assessment Appointment, I will take some measurements and we will discuss 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 help your body to fulfil its potential - mentally and physically.
Eat well. Live well. Get happy!
