Nutrition Consultations
How I can help you

I offer one on one nutrition consultations, either in person from the wonderful integrative psychology and health ‘Mindsight Centre’, located at 239-241 River St Ballina, or via telehealth, which allows me to work with clients from all locations. Prior to your consult I provide a free 10 min introductory phone consultation to discuss your needs and evaluate how I can best help you. If I feel I am not the right person to assist, I can then refer you to another health professional. For new clients it is essential to book a 75-minute introductory consultation. This allows time for an in depth analysis of your current eating habits, obstacles to change, the practical implementation of all dietary suggestions and a comprehensive plan emailed to you at the end of the session. For existing clients, 45-60 minute (extended) or 30-minute follow ups are ideal, aimed to provide ongoing support and accountability, dependent upon your individual needs.

Weight loss

Supporting and helping clients reach their weight loss goals is something that is extremely rewarding. So often clients have tried a myriad of diets in the past that which may or may not have worked in the short term, but are impossible to maintain in the long run. My aim is to help teach sustainable healthy eating strategies which allow you to achieve real results and tailor to suit your own individual and families, needs. Do not think of it as ‘going on a diet’, rather it is adopting healthy eating as a way of life. I like to focus on eating wholefoods, balancing your plate and eating smart. Not deprivation or counting calories! This also allows you to develop and foster a healthy relationship with both your body and mind. I also offer 21-day wholefood meal plans, with delicious recipes, shopping and prep lists, specifically designed to aid your weight loss journey.

Menopause

Are you struggling with perimenopause or menopause? The menopause transition is a time of significant change for women’s bodies and presents with its own unique challenges. Fluctuating hormones can cause havoc for digestive health, result in persistent weight gain despite eating habits being unchanged and not to mention cause crushing fatigue and soaring stress levels. Dietary therapy is an integral tool, which can assist symptom management, promote your long-term health and wellbeing and ensure important nutrients are being met while supporting weight loss if required.

The Anti-inflammatory Diet

Suffering from an inflammatory condition such as arthritis? Adopting an anti-inflammatory diet can help lower inflammation in the body, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and most importantly, is a practical and achievable tool for long term management. Quite simply it aims to increase the foods which have an anti-inflammatory effect, such as omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fibre, polyphenols and antioxidants and reduce those with an inflammatory effect such as processed carbs, sugars and saturated fats. There is also a strong plant-based focus and is the way we should all be eating. I love teaching clients how to cook and eat the ‘anti-inflammatory’ way for optimal health and well-being.

Digestive Health

Digestive issues such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and small intestinal bowel overgrowth (SIBO) can be extremely debilitating. The good news is dietary therapy such as adopting a low FODMAP diet can provide symptom relief in as little as 1-2 weeks! However, each person is completely unique, and it is essential to work closely with clients to find the right dietary balance. It is also critical that you complete the FODMAP challenges, so you can gradually introduce more variety and diversity into your diet. I can help you in the practical implementation of recommendations given by your doctor regarding FODMAPS and  intolerances such as wheat, gluten or dairy to ensure balanced nutrition.
