Hi, I'm Gillian, a Registered Dietitian with 15 years experience working across a range of areas including bariatric surgery and eating disorders. I'm based in Belfast and I offer face to face and online appointments.

I help clients optimise their nutritional intake and improve their relationship with food. We identify and work on thoughts, feelings and behaviours around food and how these are connected. I provide advice and support with changing habits and behaviours.

I work with clients with disordered eating behaviours such as dietary restriction, chronic dieting, binge eating and compensatory behaviours. I work with clients pre and post bariatric surgery and those diagnosed with eating disorders.

I understand how distressing disordered eating and eating disorders can be. There can be so much guilt and shame associated with food choices and eating behaviours. My approach is non-judgemental and compassionate. I provide a safe space and work in collaboration with you to set realistic and achievable goals.

I help clients to

- Progress from disordered eating to normal eating

- Restore nutritional balance

- Increase the variety and quality of food in the diet

- Work on mindset around food and eating

- Move away from rigid food rules

- Tackle feared foods

- Be curious, set goals and problem solve

- Feel empowered to take action with changing behaviours

I also

- Provide psychoeducation on nutrition

- Dispel nutrition myths

- Optimise nutritional deficiencies (if identified as a problem)

- Provide practical advice and support with implementing dietary changes

- Tailor advice to the clients' individual needs

I am passionate about helping clients to make changes that improve their quality of life and overall health and wellbeing.

I have a non weight focused approach and am passionate about ending weight stigma for all.

I offer a free 15 minute discovery call for an initial chat.
