Jo Withers Registered Dietitian
As a registered Dietitian with the health and care professional council I offer a full nutrition assessment for a number of diet related health conditions and digestive disorders. All of the dietary advice I give is based on individual needs and requirements and where needed meal plans are designed based around personal likes and dislikes. I use the most up to date clinical guidance and scientific research on food, health and disease to provide a high standard of personalised care.
I have experience of working with individuals and groups, delivering cooking workshops for young families, people with learning disabilities, mental health illness and sports nutrition for elite athletes including team GB. I have given nutrition presentations and food demonstrations to the public, health professionals and corporate groups.
I specialise in:
- Irritable bowel syndrome using the low FODMAP diet
- Mindful eating approaches to overcome disordered eating and yoyo dieting
- Emotional eating
And eating disorders including extreme fussy eating in children.
I offer face to face sessions in and around Stratford upon Avon and Evesham or via zoom/ skype and can do home visits.
