Underpinning my approach as a Dietitian reflects my philosophy and approach on every aspect of life: individual empowerment. Put simply- finding what you need to know to live your best life.
I believe in giving people easy access to high calibre information on how to understand, overcome and manage their individual (or their baby's or child's) food issues and how other issues in their life interact with their food choices.
I have developed my website to provide a suite of information on the different food issues that can occur. Some issues such as FODMAPs have quite a bit of information available on the internet but it can be difficult to determine what is up to date, while info on other food issues such as salicylates + amines + glutamates + food additives is much harder to come by. Indeed, if you suffer from food issues, it could be due to a number of different dietary components- my website brings together the most common food issues in one place so you see what resonates with you and what might be worth looking into.
I feel it is imperative to enable people on HOW to modify their current diet. It is not enough to just give a diet sheet but to support food information with ideas for substitutes, clarification on which foods to buy and meals guides that incorporate different meal ideas and recipes and food choices to help replace lost nutrients when avoiding particular foods.
Empowerment goes way beyond food knowledge. I place an extremely high value on emotional acuity and development. Often this comes down to knowing you can discuss your issues with someone who is genuinely not only knowledgeable but has compassion- to listen to your journey so far and to empathise with the burden that food issues bring with them.
The aim is for you to be able to walk out my clinic door energised by the options you can choose to improve your health through different food choices. To know you have the support after the consultation, access to further information as required, encouragement and an understanding of your situation.
I am drawn to food intolerance as I love to specialise. This allows a deep understanding and development of expertise. I absolutely love seeing how the right diet can be incredibly transformative. It is an incredible thing to witness and the power of food amazes me. I also firmly believe it is important to specialise in all the potential areas of food intolerance so as a Dietitian practitioner I can identify the most suitable approach for you or your baby or child. Just being a FODMAP specialist is not enough in this sphere- it is also very important to be across whole food issues (allergy or intolerance) as well as food chemical intolerance, as well as other food related conditions such as Coeliac Disease and gluten intolerance.
From breastfed babies to children and adults - all ages and stages! I look forward to meeting and working with your child to get you the best possible outcomes.
Food matters to all of us but for some- it matters so much more.
If you suspect food is an issue- you are probably right.
Call up for a friendly chat to see if I can be of any help. I looking forward to meeting and working with you,
