I qualified in 1994 from the University of Surrey with a BSc (Hons) in Human Nutrition and Dietetics (SRD), following my training at University College/Middlesex Hospital London. I have a wide range of experience in adult clinical dietetics and worked as the lead specialist oncology dietitian for 11 years at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, Northwood.
Since 2011, after completing training on the low FODMAP diet at King’s College, London, I started using this approach to treat IBS patients. The low FODMAP diet is a diet low in fermentable carbohydrates which has been shown to be effective in improving symptoms of IBS.
Working closely with gastroenterologists and oncologists, I provide high quality care for all patients and maintain up to date practice through continuous professional development- attending regular workshops, short courses and meetings. I strive to provide excellent standards of dietetic care and improve patient outcomes.
Some of the principal treatments carried out include:
- Cancer and palliative care
- Gastroenterology disorders, including IBS, coeliac disease and diverticular disease
- Nutritional support including patients with dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)
- Weight management, pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes (not on insulin)
I specialise in being able to provide high quality, evidence based, tailored advice. After a detailed consultation, exploring your individual needs, eating pattern and lifestyle, I will provide summary notes of the consultation and liaise with your consultant or GP, as appropriate.
