  • irritable bowel syndrome (registered as trained in FODMAP approach)
  • eating disorders
  • weight restoration (nutritional support)
  • inflammatory bowel disease

A registered dietitian (RD) communicates the science of nutrition in a practical way to promote nutritional well-being, treat disease and prevent nutrition-related problems.

My aim is always to provide appropriate and accurate advice and information, both verbal and written, in an easy-to-understand, interesting and informative manner. Where possible and if appropriate, I like to add a little humour!

I have been actively involved in and thoroughly enjoy my work as a nutrition educator to a variety of audiences through -

  • one to one consultations
  • public and professional talks
  • nutrition workshops
  • article writing

I provide a Dietetic Consultancy to Nuffield Health, Ipswich and am the specialist dietitian to The White House, Bramacare (, Ipswich
