About me

Hi,

I’m Francesca,

I’m an Italian Associate Registered Nutritionist (ANutr) within the Association for Nutrition, specialised in Sports Nutrition and I am working through the process to register as a sports nutritionist with the SENr.

As a professional ballet dancer, training every day, I had to learn how to fuel my body to perform better and to monitor my nutritional intakes for over 18 years. I use this unique insight to provide my clients with practical, insightful and lifestyle-driven nutritional advice. I believe in a scientific and personalised approach to nutrition to help my clients achieve their goals and I am an advocate of the Mediterranean Diet.

I provide nutritional consultations, both in English and Italian. I'm currently an associate nutritionist at the Health Nutritionist clinic.

I specialise in these core areas:

  • Sports nutrition
  • Dance nutrition
  • Intuitive Eating
  • Healthy Eating
  • Mediterranean Diet
  • Vegan diet
  • Weight loss
  • Gut health

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.

Fees

Initial Nutrition Consultation £85

Further information

Our initial consultations last for 55 minutes. In the few minutes prior to your arrival the nutritionist will be preparing the space for your assessment and setting up your client profile on our secure nutrition systems to allow for any session notes which may need to be captured. During the initial consultation our nutritionist will introduce the session agenda, run through the client assessment form and conduct a full medical and dietary review, addressing all health symptoms, health concerns and a full understanding into your lifestyle and health goals. Please bring a full list of all medication you are currently taking and any recent test results you may have received.

Next, we will conduct advanced body assessments, measuring your height, weight, body fat %, muscle mass %, BMI, your bodies resting metabolic rate and visceral fat levels. We then work with you to refine a treatment programme based on setting mutual goals. Goal setting is a fundamental process into making each session tangible and outcome-focused. Each goal is designed to be time-specific, manageable and focused.

Once we have outlined the treatment programme, our nutritionists will give you practical, personalised advice to take away. This will be individual to you and will be based on how these changes can fit around you and your lifestyle, we don’t expect you to completely change your taste preferences or your social lifestyle but we give you expert ways to bring in real sustained behavioural change that lasts.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
