WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

I have been supporting people on their weight and health journeys for more than 10 years. I have a special interest in weight management and was the first dietitian to develop and provide services to Canberra’s only obesity service. I have worked with doctor’s, medical specialists, exercise physiologists and psychologists to truly provide a holistic and effective service. I have a realistic and scientific approach to weight loss and have worked with many local doctors and specialists to use a medical-based approach to health and weight.

Weight loss is difficult and research shows that people do better with their weight loss journeys if they have the right support. With so much misinformation when it comes to the best way to lose weight – it can be so confusing.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to weight management. I have the unique skills to be able to support you through a range of approaches that may suit you, including:

– Healthy eating, goal setting, meal planning, portion sizes, food label reading, developing life-long healthy habits
– Understanding the use of weight loss medications prescribed through your GP
– Nutrition support for bariatric surgery
– Optifast meal replacement programs

I am an Accredited Optifast Healthcare Professional, have completed the Dietitians Association of Australia’s Centre for Advanced Learning Courses on Bariatric Surgery Nutrition and have presented to many local GPs, dietitians and other health professionals on nutrition for weight management.
