About me

A serious family illness, turned what had been an interest in food and lifestyle and the impact on health, into a career move.  At that point, 20 years ago, I retrained and became a Dietitian which allowed me to focus on nutrition that is so essential for our health and well being.

As a registered Dietitian I have been working with the NHS for the past 18 years working in children's food allergies and gastroenterology.  I specialise and am experienced in allergies and food intolerances for children and adults. I am a member of the British Dietetic special interest group in food allergies and teach on their courses.

I'm experienced in helping with all aspects of diet and nutrition at any age however I am particularly interested in digestive health, autoimmune disease, IBS and IBD and aim to provide a holistic approach.  If you require a FODMAP diet,  I aim to provide as much information in our initial consultations to allow you to follow a plan and provide email support throughout the elimination period.

Treatment for IBD is usually a mix of diet, medication and in some cases surgery. In some cases during flare ups, a short term low reside diet may be needed and I can advise you further on this.  Some patients, despite being in remission continue to  experience gastrointestinal symptoms. In this case, diet can be used to minimise these symptoms and improve quality of life.


If you have any concerns about your diet in any of the above areas, or wish to discuss how to optimise it for health and wellbeing in general, please feel free to contact me for a confidential non committal discussion.

Training, qualifications & experience

Dietitians are nutritionists who are government registered and regulated. They are respected health professionals trained to advise on all aspects of food, diet and eating behaviours that relate to health, well-being and performance.

My advice is evidence based, impartial, practical and easy to follow, achievable, and tailored to each individual's needs, goals and current situation.

Consultations will include:

  • a full assessment and diagnosis of the nutritional/dietary links in relation to your symptoms and medical conditions.
  • Advise to ensure the nutritional adequacy of your diet
  • Reports to your GP or medical Consultant and requests for additional investigations or prescriptions (if appropriate)
  • Access via phone or email to support you with your diet (included)

BSc in Applied Human Nutrition and Dietetics (Cardiff, 2004)
