Dietitian - Nutritionist, BSc (Hons), MSc, RD
Training, qualifications & experience
After graduating with distinction from Harokopio University and King’s College London, I started working as a registered dietitian. For 10 years, I ran a busy private clinic in Athens and worked as a paediatric dietitian for the Obesity Clinic of “Aghia Sophia” Children’s Hospital. Since January 2018, due to my relocation to the UK, I have been providing online diet coaching services.
During my professional life I have been involved in the MEND childhood obesity programme in the UK and internationally. I currently remain one of the longest standing members of the MEND international team. For five years I had been a research consultant for the Slimming World weight management programme and for seven years I was a nutrition consultant for Lanes Health (food supplement company based in Athens, Greece). I am an active media writer and spokesperson, and have contributed to the publication of several peer-previewed articles.

"Weight loss has always been a complex process for me, mainly from a psychological point of view. Before working with Maria, I had worked with other dietitians, but none of them had taken into consideration my psychology and feelings. Maria is an excellent dietitian and amazing person. She believed in me and helped me believe in myself. The result: in a year’s time I lost 14 kg. I have no words to thank her for being next to me, not only as a dietitian but also as a friend and psychologist! Anna S."
"Using smart tips, Maria helps you to follow a healthy balanced diet. Her recipes are delicious and become part the entire family’s diet. You never feel like you are in a diet, because everything is based on your dietary habits and lifestyle. I strongly recommend Maria! Kelly K."
"Exquisite professional, exceptionally qualified, with fresh ideas and suggestions for a healthy balanced diet. Maria tailors your diet plan on your personal needs and lifestyle. And last but not least, an amazing person! Efi A."
"Maria is an excellent dietitian and amazing person. I met her years ago, when I sought her help at her private practice in Athens. From the very first moment I felt very comfortable with her and she immediately knew how to approach me. She taught me how to eat healthily, not only to lose weight, but as a state of mind. She always listened to me and supported me in my effort and I thank her from my heart for that! Her recipes are still an integral part of my everyday diet. I still get advice from Maria on nutrition issues not only for myself, but also for my child. Maria: thank you for always being there for me. Keep going! Maria T."
"Although my collaboration with Maria was random, it proved to be very successful! A skilled professional, Maria managed to tailor my diet plan to my very own needs and lifestyle, making the whole process much easier and less tiring! I have already recommended Maria and I will carry on doing it! Natali R."
"It was a long time ago -about a decade- when, following exhaustive and completely wrong diets, I had the luck to end up in Maria’s private practice. Maria taught me how to eat healthily, without feeling deprived or hungry. Then, I saw my body transforming and my mood improving! I was greatly impressed by Maria, as she was not an instructor, but a companion to my own effort! After all these years, my daily (nutrition) routine always has Maria’s “presence”. Maria, thank you for teaching me how to follow a health balanced diet! Mytro H."
