Frequently asked questions
What’s the difference between a Dietitian, Nutritionist or Nutritional therapist?
Registered Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems. Dietitian is a protected title and we are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law. Dietitians must have the required level of extensive qualifications and expertise to register and are governed by an ethical code to ensure we continue to work to an expected standard.
Will my health insurance cover Dietitian-Nutritionist services?
Yes some health insurance providers cover dietetic/nutritionist services. Please contact you health insurance provider to find out what they cover. I am registered with a number of different health insurance providers

What are your fees?
Can I speak to you prior to booking?
Yes I offer a free 15 minute phone call. We can discuss your health or nutritional problem and I will explain how I can help you. Please contact me to book this.
How soon can I book an appointment?
Generally I am booked 1-2 weeks in advance. However I often have last minute appointments so it may be possible to schedule an appointment with me sooner.
What health conditions can you help with?
I have experience and expertise in a variety of health conditions. If you have a specific health condition, please contact me to see how I can help. I specialise in IBS, low FODMAP, food intolerances, other bowel and stomach conditions and chronic illness.
Do you offer weight loss diets?
No sorry I’m a non-diet dietitian and don’t offer weight loss diets as I don’t believe diets are healthy or sustainable long term. Instead I offer Intuitive Eating which I believe is far more sustainable and health focused.
As a registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, you can be assured I’m an expert in nutrition.
