About me

I am a Specialist Bariatric (Weight Loss Surgery) Weight Management Dietitian, trained to adjust gastric bands.
I trained at the University of North London and completed my dietetic training at the Hammersmith Hospital London, in 1992. I’ve worked as a Dietitian in a variety of settings in London and the Midlands. My specialist interest lies with bariatric patients struggling to lose weight after weight loss surgery.
I like to manage the clients expectations through positive thinking, behaviour change and NLP. This helps the client focus on their weight loss and self belief.
Healthy eating is about finding a balance and enjoying food. I follow the ‘80/20 rule’. This means 80% of the time I aim to eat well, and 20% to be more relaxed about what I have and not deprive myself of anything. When combining this with regular exercise, it allows me to keep my weight steady and also feel good, while enjoying what I eat.
The best thing about being a Dietitian is following the client journey, empowering them to build a healthy relationship with food to overcome fears and helping them transform both physically and mentally. My mantra is “It’s not what you eat, it’s about WHY you eat!”
I am passionate about self –development, fitness and health and a firm believer in a positive mind set. I’m a huge fan of Tony Robbins. I’ve attended an “Unleash the Power” seminar. This has transformed my consultations enabling my clients overcome their fears and break the cycle of negative self-talk!
