“I am a registered Dietitian with twelve years’ clinical experience in the NHS in various settings including outpatient clinics, hospital wards and group education. My specialties include gastroenterology and nutrition support.
Although I love my work for the NHS and this still takes up the majority of my week, I miss the opportunity to spend more time with my patients and clients. I have therefore started a private clinic where I am able to give people a more personalised experience and more quality time to receive the help they need.
I can provide a level of support that is difficult to achieve in the context of NHS appointment times and waiting lists.”

Diet for an active lifestyle
Initial consultations will last for up to an hour and will involve a discussion about your medical history, your general lifestyle and your past and current eating patterns. Measurements may include height, weight, waist or arm circumference and hand-grip strength. Everybody is different, so we will discuss and agree individual goals that are achievable and realistic within your current lifestyle.
If a follow-up appointment is needed, this will involve reviewing your progress in terms of your measurements and your confidence with the plan you are following, and modifying goals as necessary.
- Should you find it difficult to travel to the clinic, then home visits can also be arranged.
- Help is available for individuals, couples and families.
- Fees are £85 for an initial consultation and £55 for a follow-up appointment.
- These fees are based on recommendations from The BDA Freelance Dietitians Group 2018.
Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law, and are governed by an ethical code to ensure that they always work to the highest standard.
They have clinical training in working with both sick and healthy people in a variety of healthcare settings. Uniquely, they use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.
Only those registered with the statutory regulator, the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) can use the title. To check that your Dietitian is registered, use the HCPC online register – www.hcpc-uk.org

Many apologies but the clinic does not have disabled access at present.
PLEASE NOTE – I cannot see patients with eating disorders or those patients under 16 years of age. Patients between the ages of 16-18 need to attend appointments with a parent or guardian aged 18 +
