I take confidentiality seriously and take every reasonable precaution with your paper files and digital data as per the Data Protection Act and my professional codes of conduct as a registered health professional. I am registered with the Information Commissioners Office. Other than with your GP and professionals you give me the details of, I won’t share your information with anyone.
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.
If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment please try to give me as much notice as possible so that I can offer the slot to someone else. Cancellations made less than 2 working days in advance will generally be charged at full rate.

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.

When I see you for your first appointment I first find out what you’d like to achieve by coming to see me. I then carry out a full assessment and then move on to giving advice and formulating a treatment plan with you. Continue reading “What can I expect in a consultation?”
Dietitians, nutritionists and nutritional therapists all advise on nutrition and diet, but have different training, regulations and legal status. Dietitians are the gold standard for trusted one-to-one advice. Continue reading “What is the difference between a dietitian, nutritionist and nutritional therapist?”
