I am an accredited practicing dietitian who is passionate about helping people to build a more positive relationship with food and their body, and reconnect and learn to trust their own intuition around food. We are all born with these skills but our life experiences and the media, which is flooded with conflicting advice, can mean we lose touch with this. When faced with illness or a specific health concern, or simply looking to improve overall well-being and self-acceptance, sorting through complex information and advice about diet can require specialist help and support which I aim to provide in a non-judgemental supportive environment.
I have been working in the dietetic field since 2006 in a variety of roles – contracting dietitian for the NZ army, clinical dietitian, centre manager of a weight loss centre, and as a specialist eating disorder dietitian.
In these roles I gained expertise in helping individuals of all ages (children, adolescents and adults) with complex clinical conditions such as eating disorders, food allergy and intolerance, IBS syndrome, chronic fatigue, malnutrition, bowel disorders, cancer, kidney disease, heart disease; and also those who want to enhance their performance.
