About me

I am a Registered Dietitian based in South Wales, I am passionate about health and nutrition specialising in the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and advising on a low FODMAP dietary plan.

The FODMAP diet is an evidence based approach to IBS and is recognised for reducing symptoms in over 70% of sufferers.

I hold clinics across the Pontypridd, Talbot Green, Llwynypia and Cardiff areas and I am able to be flexible and meet with you at a location nearer to your home.

SKYPE calls can also be arranged to give professional advice in the comfort of your own home.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered Dietitian with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), a member of the British Dietetic Association (BDA) and a listed member of the BDAs Freelance Dietitian Group (FDG).

I have a MSc in Public Health and a BSc (Hons) Nutrition and Biology (with state registration as a dietitian).

I have over 25 years of experience in the field of dietetics, specialising in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and the FODMAP dietary plan.

Certified by Kings College, London to deliver the low FODMAP diet plan.
