Individual Dietary Analysis: Identify your dietary deficiencies

Upon receipt of a food diary (which will be provided), I will analyse your diet, and provide a complete breakdown of the macronutrients (e.g. protein, fat, fibre) and micronutrients (e.g. iron, calcium, folic acid, vitamins) in your diet. I will compare these with your nutrient requirements, and provide computerised graphs to enable you to visualise where you can improve your dietary intake. This analysis will help to identify any nutritional deficiencies, without the need for invasive bloods or other tests which have little evidence base. Telephone feedback is provided.

Weight loss / Healthy eating groups

Bespoke weight loss groups and healthy eating groups are available if groups of friends wish to get together to commission me to run them. These are usually run as 6-week courses, but can be tailored for your specific group. For more information, please visit my training & courses page.

Workshops, Training and Lecturing

I have a wealth of experience in providing bespoke training, courses and workshops to a variety of groups and settings. Please visit my training & courses page for more information on this.

Article Writing

I am experienced in writing articles on nutrition and health related topics, and particularly enjoy this area of dietetics. I currently write articles for Diet in Pregnancy and the Talk Health Partnership. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Media and PR Work

As an experienced nutritional professional, I am able to offer a confident, friendly and authoritative service, to work with all your media and PR needs. I have written articles and information for websites, newsletters and resources, and have a keen eye for detail. I am able to translate the science of nutrition into language that can be understood by any audience. Please visit my media page for links to interviews and media work.

Resource Development

I have significant experience in developing resources and working with a graphic designer as required. Nutritional resources on any topic (e.g. health education literature, flyers, leaflets and posters) can be produced, and printed if required. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Menu / Recipe Analysis

Detailed computerised nutritional analysis can be provided for use in larger settings and institutions (e.g. restaurants, cafes, hospitals, care homes, schools, nurseries, workplaces), personal use and the media. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Supermarket Visits

An hour-long visit to a local supermarket, where you can discover practical advice and information on food as required by you. Previous clients have requested information on food labelling (how to use food labels to choose healthier foods, or to avoid certain allergens), comparing branded vs budget food, and visualising portion sizes. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Please contact me to discuss your requirements and prices. If you can’t see the service you require, please just ask – bespoke ‘packages’ are available to meet your specific needs or requests.

About Me

I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2003, with a first class honours degree in Physiology with Nutrition. I went on to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics in Cardiff, leading to State Registration as a Dietitian with the Health and Care Professions Council. I am also a member of the British Dietetic Association (BDA). Since qualifying as a Dietitian in 2005, I have worked in various roles within the NHS, before setting up my own private practice in 2013. I have gained experience in a very wide range of dietetics and conditions, including weight management, diabetes, allergy and intolerance, malnutrition and nutritional deficiencies.
  In the last three years, I have specialised in the following areas:
  • Infant & toddler nutrition (including infant feeding, weaning, healthy eating and childhood obesity)
  • Health Promotion — working with local organisations to promote healthy eating and optimum nutrition, resource development and training
  • Nutritional support, including building up advice, effective use of nutritional supplementation and artificial feeding (e.g. PEG and nasogastric (NG) feeding)
  • Providing bespoke training courses and workshops
  • Sports nutrition (more recently)
Since qualifying, I have undertaken a number of training courses, including 'Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS)', which is an initial teaching qualification, Paediatric Dietetics Module 1 and a Postgraduate Certificate in Sports Nutrition with Distinction (2015). As well as seeing patients privately, I have a growing portfolio of project work. I am currently a consultant Dietitian for a local Council on a project to improve nutrition and healthy eating for Early Years settings. I write articles for the British Heart Foundation, and also various websites. I am also a consultant Dietitian for Slim & Save, supporting clients on maintaining their weight after completing the diet. For your peace of mind, I have an Enhanced DSB Certificate. I am also a busy mum of three and enjoy the challenge of balancing my work and home life. The children provide lots of opportunities to practice my own advice, such as managing child and infant nutrition, including weaning and healthy eating!
