What standards do you work to?

As a dietitian I take care to abide by the British Dietetic Association Code of Professional Conduct and Health and Care Professions Council Standards of Proficiency.

I have spent many years working in the NHS and the advice I give is generally in line with Department of Health and NHS best practice. However, working privately gives me more freedom to trial some interventions that are only just emerging as best practice.  You can read more about my experience and qualifications here.

I aim to work with you and help you to make informed choices about your diet-related issue.  If you disagree with any of my advice or approach please do let me know so we can discuss it and I can modify your sessions appropriately.

Do you treat eating disorders?

Are you looking for information on the eating disorders anorexia nervosa, or bulimia nervosa, or support for overcoming an eating disorder?

Treatment of eating disorders often includes a dietitian who has had extra training and experience in specialist teams.

Whilst some of my work with people who have problems with bingeing and overeating, and in helping people become more intuitive eaters, is quite similar to the work used in eating disorders, I don’t feel I have enough experience in this specialist area to help treat you if you have a diagnosed eating disorder.
