  • I can see you are a Registered Dietitian, but have found similar services being offered by Nutritionists or Nutritional Therapists, is there a difference?
    Yes, understanding the difference between a Dietitian and a Nutritionist is key when it comes to seeking dietary advice. Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and have an ethical code of conduct similar to doctors. This means that you can trust that they will provide you with the most up-to-date and reliable evidence-based information. All dietitians are regulated by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and only those on the HCPC Register can call themselves dietitians. Nutritionists are qualified to provide information about food and healthy eating, but not about special diets for clinical conditions. The title of Nutritionist is not protected by law, meaning that anyone can call themselves a Nutritionist, a Nutritional Therapist, a Clinical Nutritionist or a Diet Expert. Only registrants with the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists can call themselves a Registered Nutritionist.
  • You have a background in Psychology, how does this make a difference to your approach?
    My background in Psychology gives me an edge in helping my clients achieve their dietary goals. I have studied and practiced Health Psychology, which is the application of psychological theories and techniques to promote health and prevent disease. I have also learned how to use evidence-based behavioral change techniques, such as motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral strategies, to help my clients overcome possible barriers and challenges while on a dietary change journey. I believe that changing your diet is not only about what you eat, but also about how you think and feel about food and yourself. That's why I take a holistic and person-centered approach, which means that I respect your values, preferences, and needs, and work with you as a partner rather than an authority figure.
  • I can see you offer online consultations. How online consultations are delivered?
    Online consultations are a convenient and flexible way to receive dietetic support that suits your lifestyle and goals. You can choose from a variety of platforms, such as Zoom, Skype, or Microsoft Teams, to have a video call with me at a time that works for you. You can also contact me anytime between the sessions via phone, email, WhatsApp, or Messenger if you have any questions or need any guidance. Please note that I am only offering online consultations at the moment. I hope to resume face-to-face consultations in 2024.
  • Are online consultations as good as in-person ones?
    Absolutely! I’ve found online consultations to be just as effective (if not more so). In fact, for many people online sessions can be more effective as they fit into a busy lifestyle, so is easier to commit to. From receiving your diet plan, asking questions, receiving support, logging your food and mood diary; even completing a body composition assessment, everything can be done online, from the comfort of your own home, at times to fit in with everyday life. All you need is a device with internet connection and a private space where you can talk freely.
  • Do I need to complete a food diary before my initial consultation?
    Before our first dietary consultation, I strongly recommend you take the time to complete a 5-day food diary which I will send straight to your email address together with detailed instructions. Your food diary will give me valuable information on the basis of which we can build the consultation strategy. This includes information about the foods you normally eat, your dietary patterns, possible nutrient deficiencies, as well as psychological and lifestyle factors that may influence your diet or symptoms. Once I receive your food diary, I will need 3 working days to analyse it and produce a report to discuss in our first consultation.
  • Does the diet plan require preparing complex meals or weighting foods?
    No. All my plans are easy to follow and they are based on the tried and tested Mediterranean diet, which is recognised as one of the world’s healthiest diets. My approach is less about restriction or complex rules and more about changing your attitude to eating so that you can enjoy delicious, nourishing food, without feeling deprived.
  • After the first consultation, do I have to commit to a certain schedule?
    No. It is entirely up to you to decide if you need any follow-up sessions or how frequently you would like to meet.
  • How much do your consultations cost?
    Please check the "Plans and Pricing" section of the website.
  • Do you offer discounted packages?
    Yes, we offer 3-month and 6-month discounted packages. For details see Plans and Pricing.
