Paula Dunley, BSc. (Hons), MBANT, CNHC, Registered NT
I am a fully qualified Registered Nutritional Therapist providing private one-to-one consultations.
I have always been interested in a whole foods and natural approach to healthy eating, my aim is to provide you with a personalised nutrition and lifestyle action plan to support you to implement your recommended dietary changes. I believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ diet, therefore I will work with your own unique health presentation to design a personalised nutrition plan using a nutrition science-based and patient-centred approach.
Once you have booked your first Nutritional Therapy appointment you will be emailed an information package. You will need to please complete the forms and bring them with you to your consultation. At the initial consultation, I will gather further information and work with you to strategise and prioritise your personal health goals.
