The best diet is the one you don’t know you’re on!

As an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and member of the Dietitian’s Association of Australia (DAA), Helen is an expert in Nutrition and Dietary management, helping you optimise your health, fitness and well-being through nutrition.

 

Personalised Nutrition  Counselling

Everyone is an individual! There are so many factors that impact on a person’s health and lifestyle and I understand the need to consider all these issues when giving nutrition advice.

Regardless of whether you need advice relating to weight management, PCOS, Food intolerances and Allergies, Children’s nutrition, IBS and Gastrointestinal health, Cardiovascular health, Eating Disorders or Body Image concerns, I work with you in a collaborative and supportive way to help you find nutrition solutions that suit your personality, family and lifestyle.

My goal is to help you optimise your health and well-being using nutrition. Yet I also understand that your goals along with the challenges you face are unique, and so I work with you to tailor education and recommendations to suit your needs.

Evidence-based Recommendations

As an Accredited Practising Dietitian, I am dedicated to offering a service to my clients that is based on the most up-to-date information and evidence. My aim is to equip my clients with the knowledge and skills so you can achieve your health, fitness and wellness goals in a sustainable way.

I understand that changing your eating habits can be challenging. That’s why I take a holistic approach to your care, identifying your needs and tailoring a nutrition and lifestyle plan specifically for you. Together, we set realistic goals while I provide relevant education, support and motivation to help you make sustainable changes.

Having completed further training in Motivational interviewing, my approach is to help you find your reasons for change, and use strategies that help you focus on the outcomes you desire over time.

As a Health at Every Size (R) aligned Dietitian I am trained to put your Health FIRST

This means that I am trained in weight neutral practices and the non-diet approach. In practical terms this means that I treat you for the condition you present with and I do not judge, assume, stigmatise or prejudice people on the basis of weight, body size, shape or otherwise. It is my intention and hope to create a space in which people feel safe and comfortable to discuss their health concerns that centre around food without the fear that they will be told they need to change their body (i.e. lose weight) as well. If on the other hand you hope to improve your health so you can lose weight, it is my hope we can explore non-diet, intuitive, natural eating strategies that support your health and well-being from a place of compassion and self-care.

With 20 years of education and elite performance experience, book an appointment to discuss how I can help you reach your health and wellness goals

Eating Disorders and Body Image

I am passionate about supporting all people who are struggling with body image and their relationship with food. With nutrition counselling and careful guidance you can achieve and maintain a healthy weight through learning intuitive eating practices.

Chronic Disease Management

If you’re troubled by Heart issues,  osteoporosis, anaemia, food intolerances, allergies, diabetes, diverticulosis, GORD, coeliac disease, IBS, liver disease, mental illness or any other chronic illness then I can assist you in modifying your diet and lifestyle to help you enjoy a longer and healthier life.

IBS & Gastrointestinal Issues

As a dietitian I have the qualifications and skills to provide you with expert nutrition and dietary advice.  Your nutritional needs will be assessed and I will guide you to use food as Medical Nutrition therapy. Through understanding your condition and the relationship with food you will be able to improve your digestive health in the long term.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Lifestyle and dietary strategies are an important aspect in managing PCOS. While weight loss is said to be helpful, focusing on establishing dietary patterns that are supportive of your health and well-being, and exercise that is energising and invigorating rather than depleting, is how I prefer to approach PCOS.

Weight Management and Chronic Dieting

Given the wide amount of conflicting information available, it is really easy to be confused about what to eat and how to lose or maintain your weight. A dietitian is your expert nutrition professional to guide you on your journey towards lasting health and help you reach your goals.
