Tired of not seeing the weight loss results that you’ve wanted?

Have a new diagnosis of a metabolic condition (e.g. diabetes, high cholesterol, pre-diabetes) and not sure what to do with your diet?

Confused about how to improve and optimise your diet to better your health?

This is where our Dietitian can help give you the support and advice you need.

We offer expert nutrition treatment in:

  • Weight management and obesity
  • Type 2 Diabetes, pre-diabetes/insulin resistance and PCOS

Cardiovascular conditions:

  • high cholesterol, high blood pressure
  • Underweight and disordered eating
  • Bariatric surgery management

What we eat is vital to our health and can help prevent numerous diseases including heart disease, strokes, osteoporosis and cancer. With so much conflicting nutrition advice around, it can be hard to know who and what to believe. Sadly, diets that promise rapid weight loss often lead to weight being regained just as quickly. A long-term approach to a healthy diet is the crucial first step to weight loss success.

What are Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs)?

Accredited Practising Dietitians are healthcare professionals that have the qualifications and skills to provide expert nutrition and dietary advice to both groups and individuals. They have sound university qualifications, undertake ongoing training and education and comply with industry best practice and professional standards.

Why would you see a Dietitian?

Dietitians work to empower patients to make healthy behaviour changes to optimise wellbeing. Dietitians are trained to assess an individual’s diet to help treat a wide range of conditions including diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, hypertension, cancers, gastrointestinal diseases, food allergies, food intolerance’s, eating disorders as well as overweight and obesity and promote general healthy eating.

APDs are able to translate scientific information on nutrition into practical advice about what to eat for better health.

What to expect during a session?

During an initial assessment a Dietitian will gather essential information from you in order to tailor and design an individualised nutritional management plan for you.

This typically involves:

  • Having a discussion regarding relevant medical information and your current health status
  • Considering your eating patterns, food attitudes and health aims for the session
  • Counselling on ways to improve your eating habits
  • An assessment of your BMI and waist circumference
  • Addressing any concerns you may have and evaluating your stage of change
  • Developing an individualised evidence based nutrition management plan to achieve your unique health and lifestyle goals
