Hey, I'm Mark,
I'm a weight loss and diabetes specialist dietitian. I mix my time between my freelance work and my NHS day job where I work as the specialist diabetes dietitian in an NHS Trust.
I also hold a degree in sport and exercise science and have worked as a personal trainer for many years. I therefore have a very good understanding of physical activity and exercise and the physiology of the body and how it works.
My practice not only helps educate you about optimal nutrition but also delves into the psychology of habit formation and behaviour change. Many clients I encounter can do with a nudge in the right direction with their diet but ultimately it is help with motivation, will power and support where I truly make a difference.
I provide weight management and diabetes 1:1 consultations, dietary programmes, diet plans amongst other services.
Typically I ask clients to commit for a 3 month period as from experience it takes this long for change to truly be consolidated. However, pay as you go options and diet plans are also available.
My style is non judgemental, supportive and friendly but if you need a sterner hand, I can certainly do that too.
Dietitians are the only accredited nutritionists in the UK. Therefore, we are monitored and accountable for our practice. This means I can only make recommendations that I think are best for my clients needs. As a result, all recommendations I make will be for your own benefit and not personal gain.
I hope to hear from you and offer a free consultation for all new clients to ensure I am a good match for you.
