I'm a Sports and Eating Disorder Dietitian, working with both adults and adolescents. I am also a mother to three gorgeous children, one of whom is diagnosed ASD. I therefore have a lot of personal experience with fussy eating and thinking outside the box.

I am a registered Clinical Dietitian (RD), qualifying in 2011 (University of Surrey Bsc Hons). I have specialised in Eating Disorders since 2015, initially covering inpatient services for adults and adolescents, before moving to private practice in 2020.
In addition, I have completed my Msc in Sports Nutrition, focussing on energy sustainability and sufficiency of different diets, like veganism, within elite endurance athletes. I am particularly interested in nutrition related to RED-S and hypothalamic amenorrhea and look to combine these specialities to provide a rounded and holistic approach to help clients. I currently work at the English Ballet School, combining my dietetic degree with sports nutrition to ensure the ballet dancers have optimal nutrition.
My personal interest in dietetics and start of my career originated from the experiences that came with my eldest son’s early diagnoses of Autism, Acute Reflux and associated food refusal for the early years of his life. Through this and my extensive work with Adolescents in Mental Health clinics, I am fluent with the requirements related to fussy eating and other associated eating and sensory disorders relating to Special Needs.
