Why Choose an APD?

Accredited practising dietitians (APDs) are University-qualified experts in food and nutrition.  They translate scientific evidence and information into individual practical advice.  APDs must undertake continuing professional development in order to remain accredited, ensuring that their knowledge and skills are always up to date.

A consultation with an APD will usually involve a diet and lifestyle assessment, as well as education and counselling.  Follow-up appointments are used where necessary to monitor progress towards health goals.

Balanced and Holistic Approach

The food we choose to eat plays an enormous role in both our physical and mental health.

The reasons we eat food are so complex and nuanced – it is rarely just out of pure hunger. Food provides comfort and pleasure; it has a big role in traditions and social interactions and is an important part of family life. So it is important that we can eat in a way that nourishes our body, mind and soul. Exploring what food means to you and how you relate to food is an important step in forming a healthy relationship with food and eating. When you can feel comfortable in the choices you make and you feel healthy and happy you are well on the way to living your best life.

My mission is simple – to improve your quality of life through good nutrition and a positive relationship with food.
