BHNutr, MDiet A.P.D., AN
About meI am an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) and a trained chef who is passionate about the enjoyment of food and believes that eating a nutritious diet doesn’t have to get in the way of that. My aim is to work alongside clients to help them make changes to diet and lifestyle that are realistic and achievable, and that result in lasting improvements to health and wellbeing. In other words, fad diets are avoided with nutrition counselling techniques following a non-diet approach. Tailoring nutrition therapy to my client's individual needs ensures improvements in nutritional status and overall health are within reach.
Being an APD means that I am registered with Dietitians Australia, and that I continue to attend professional development to ensure I am using the most up to date research and guidelines when providing nutrition care to my clients.

Initial consultation:Before you arrive at your first appointment you will be asked to complete a short pre-appointment questionnaire which will be used to plan your first appointment.
The initial appointment is an extended appointment which allows for time to collect information from you which will be used to tailor nutrition recommendations to you and your individual health needs. Nutrition recommendations made in the initial appointment, along with content covered in subsequent review appointments will be guided by this information collected.
After your first consultation you will receive an email outlining key points covered and recommendations made.
Review consultation:Your first review session is likely to be scheduled 2-4 weeks after your initial appointment. Review appointments allow for continuing support from your dietitian to identify and overcome any challenges you may be experiencing with your new diet.
During review appointments, your diet, as well as clinical signs and symptoms will be reviewed and monitored to ensure prescribed dietary changes continue to work for you. Tailoring dietary advice ensures improvements to your diet are achievable, and more likely to result in long term improvements to health and wellbeing.
Depending on your reason for seeing a dietitian, you may only need a few sessions or you may need ongoing support, your dietitian will advise you on what would be the recommended number of sessions for you.
