Disordered eating can happen at any size, with any body shape. Sadly, the glamorised body shapes associated with eating disorders portrayed by social media, popular movies and TV shows can lead to many of my patients feeling afraid, ashamed or unworthy of seeking help. However, habits or symptoms associated with disordered eating don’t always fall under a clear cut diagnosis or stereotype. Regardless of the problem or severity, I believe that everyone deserves access to nutritional treatment and support.

I can help you if you are worried that:

  • Your relationship with food isn’t ideal

  • You have food anxieties or food fears

  • You have very black-and-white rules around food

  • You find yourself preoccupied with food for much of your day


Often, disordered relationships with eating and food, and poor body image begin in periods of stress, major life changes, or poor mental health. Disordered eating behaviour often acts as a coping mechanism when everything else in life feels uncontrollable. For some people, changing their eating behaviour might have started off as a resolution to become healthier, but over time it turned into a negative, unhealthy or restrictive eating habit.

I’ve helped many of my clients to escape from a diet mentality and strict food rules so that they feel comfortable honouring their body’s natural hunger and fullness signals. Identifying any problems early on is important, as it provides an opportunity to develop healthier ways of dealing with stress and trauma. Ultimately, seeking treatment is the beginning of your process of gaining a deeper insight into yourself and developing new coping mechanisms and skills that you can build on for many years to come.

Did you know that your gut is like your second brain?
In fact, there are more neurotransmitters in your gut than in your brain, which means that looking after your gut health is essential for your mental health. I’m passionate about helping my patients to improve their gut health because this can help to regulate your mood, boost the immune system, keep skin healthy, and improve sleep and energy levels. Focusing on the health of your gut is one of the most effective ways to enhance your overall health and wellbeing.

I work with my patients to improve their gut health by firstly evaluating your diet to assess if you’re eating foods that will keep your gut healthy and happy, and how you could improve. This might include eating a wider variety of foods, focusing on specific nutrients, vitamins or minerals, consuming more fibre, or avoiding foods that your gut doesn’t agree with. 

Many of my patients might struggle with digestive issues or discomfort after eating. Whether these symptoms are an occasional inconvenience, or a debilitating daily occurrence, no one should have to put up with ongoing gut symptoms. As a nutritionist, I can help you explore whether a specific food or component doesn’t agree with you through a systematic trial and error process. If there’s another underlying cause for your gut symptoms, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), we can address this using evidence-based dietary and lifestyle interventions.
