Specialist areas:

  • Women's weight loss 

  • Female hormones

  • Diet for stress, energy, and mood

After years of working one on one with clients, I have alot of knowledge in nutrition and am particularly passionate about weight loss for women. Despite learning at university that weight loss = calories in vs calories out- my experience and further research has proven that this is not always the case.

I work with clients to develop specific nutrition interventions relevant to their preferences, lifestyle, and goals. I focus on all aspects of health when working with clients; stress and sex hormones, sleep, energy, lifestyle, gut microbiome, and work with them to help them understand food and nutrition.

Book a call with me and we can discuss working together towards your nutrition and lifestyle goals. 

Specialist areas:

  • Fussy eaters and allergies

  • Gut issues

  • Weight loss for women & men

  • Long term health conditions; diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular issues etc.

As a wife and mum of two, I know the importance of looking after yourself first before you’re able to look after your family; I also know how hard this can be to achieve with the busy schedules we lead today!

Navigating through nutrition in today’s world can be tricky and downright confusing. My goal is to use a more personalised approach with each client, so they can walk away with a plan and goals tailored to them.

I completed my Masters of Dietetics in 2014 and have been working in the nutrition field since then. I am passionate about nutrition and its role in our overall well being, so am looking forward to sharing this knowledge with you all.
