Areas of Expertise

Personalised nutrition specific to your goals.

We focus on…

Customised whole food nutrition using real-life, sustainable strategies, not short-term meal plans.
We develop a tailored nutrition protocol specifically to address your health goals.


Digestive issues

IBS, IBD, coeliac disease, diverticulitis

Navigating food with digestive symptoms can be pain in the gut. I work with you through a personalised approach to get to the root of these issues.


Planning Pregnancy

Female hormones, thyroid issues, endometriosis, PCOS, gestational diabetes

Hormones can wreak havoc on our physical, mental, and social wellbeing. Sorting through various nutritional and environmental elements which influence our hormonal is seriously helpful when planning pregnancy.



Gestational diabetes, Pre-diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, hypoglycaemia

Managing blood sugars is about finding the right combinations of foods and the right environment which will leave us feeling consistently satisfied and energised.


Weight loss

Goals can vary tremendously when it comes to body composition. Ultimately, supporting weight loss or body composition goals usually comes from the inside out. My philosophy is health first, weight second; weight change happens as health improves. If your primary goal is weight loss or changing body composition, we will develop a plan that looks at the way you are fueling your body for better satiety, energy, and to reduce inflammation.


Low carb, Healthy Fat / Carbohydrate-modified dietary strategies

We specialise in this whole food approach as a strategy for managing insulin resistance and supporting weight loss.


Whole-food personalised

Together we design a whole-food plan best suited according to your personal goals, paster experiences, food preferences, and any existing sensitivities or intolerances.
