Looking for a nutritionist to help you get your health goals on track?
In a one-on-one consultation I can help you with:

Whether you have a health concern that you’d like a natural approach to treating, or you desire general advice to live your most nourished life, I can provide you with the assistance you need and be there to support you along the way.
Why see a nutritionist?
Working with a nutritionist is a great way to take control of your health and help you feel and look your best. We deal with the cause of your symptoms and formulate a holistic approach to meet your health goals. I can help you with a wide variety of ailments and together we can work towards your desired outcome.
‘But what if I don’t have anything wrong with me?’
You don’t need to have a specific health complaint to work with a nutritionist. It might just be that you want healthy dietary and lifestyle advice to help you live a nourished life and prevent future conditions or complications.
Duration: 1 hour
Description: A full assessment of nutritional status and lifestyle factors will be conducted through in-depth questioning, physical examinations and clinical evaluation. From this, a treatment plan consisting of dietary and lifestyle advice will be tailored to your needs.
Duration: 30 minutes
Description: During this session, progress from the previous consult will be tracked and assessed through further questioning and additional investigations. Based on this information, additional treatment advice will be provided and we will continue to monitor any progress and make adaptations along the way.
In my consultations I like to utilise multiple tools and resources to achieve the best outcome. I place an emphasis on education so that I can provide you with the knowledge you need to implement long term, healthy changes. Every person is an individual and requires a personalised approach; tools that I draw upon to provide this include nutritional medicine, dietary guidance and lifestyle coaching.
Nutrients are required for every biochemical process within our body. Each one plays an important role in our overall health and general bodily functions. If we are not acquiring enough through our diet, problems can start to occur. Supplements can be beneficial for giving us an extra boost of a required nutrient to correct a deficiency. They are also useful in supporting certain processes that may not be correctly functioning, which can be contributing towards certain issues and disease states. When necessary, I utilise supplements at therapeutic doses to promote proper bodily function and correct specific problems. I draw upon the latest research and use an evidence-based approach to supplementation in order to ensure the greatest efficacy and best results.
Food really is medicine and it is amazing to see the benefits we can have towards our health through simple dietary changes and healthy eating practises. The treatment portion of a consultation will contain dietary advice ranging anywhere from specific foods to include or avoid, to particular recipes that would benefit you. Any dietary needs or preferences are taken into account in this dietary guidance and it is tailored specifically to you. I encourage balance and healthy habits that can be implemented long term to keep you thriving and feeling your best.
Our lifestyle plays a huge role in our overall health; by acknowledging and addressing the areas that can create beneficial change we are able to achieve our desired outcome more efficiently. I address and advise upon any areas of lifestyle that are necessary and implicated in your presentation. This can include things like sleep, stress, exercise, beauty regiment, household products, environment, career, hobbies, relationships and more. I facilitate an open and confidential space where we can discuss anything that could be contributing, either positively or negatively, towards your overall health and wellbeing and work to create beneficial change.
Sometimes more investigation is required to get to the bottom of what is going on. Soon I will be offering functional medicine testing, through Healthscope and Nutripath, which provides further insight into the reason behind your health concern. These can range from tests done during the consultation to blood work that needs to be collected elsewhere and sent off for analysis. More information will be provided about this service in the coming weeks and will be offered to clients as it becomes available.
