Compassionate, open minded, body positive, collaborative approach. Adults age 16 plus. Video call from anywhere in the UK.

I am a registered Dietitian with 30 years of NHS experience in a variety of roles. My main focus is on neurodivergence, disordered eating and chronic health conditions.

I take an individual, food first, approach to each client, being very much focused on building self-esteem and independent decision making around food and health. 

My practice is neuro affirming and gender affirming, feel free to always show up as your authentic self.

The following is an example of some of the areas I work with. If you are not sure if I can work with you, please get in touch.

Chronic illness - Optimizing nutrition through diet especially, m.e/cfs, pots (postural tachycardia syndrome), Ehlers Danlos/hypermobility, long Covid and not yet diagnosed symptoms

Mast cell activation syndrome and histamine intolerance

Eating challenges in Autism and ADHD - binge eating, snacking, irregular eating, sensory seeking or avoidance - neuro affirming approach

Arfid (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder) in adults - neuro affirming approach

Disordered eating - not including diagnosed, active, eating disorders where a team approach is recommended

Support to build a more positive relationship with food - past eating disorders, emotional eating, secret eating. Without concern about weight loss or gain, no matter what your starting weight

Health regardless of weight - optimizing health whatever your weight

Worries and concerns - about the way you are eating, the balance of your diet, how your diet may be impacting on your physical or mental health
