What is a Nutritionist?
A Nutritionist is a qualified professional who is there to help you improve your diet and lifestyle. They can help to improve your current diet so that you can achieve your goals whether they are weight loss, sporting or fitness related, or to improve your health. Nutritionists have particular areas of expertise in diet related health conditions, such as irritable bowel disease and food intolerances. When working with a Nutritionist, you will receive a level of support to help you overcome any barriers or problems you may face when trying to change your diet, and guidance that will keep you on track.
How can a Nutritionist help you?
Nutritionists are trained to assess your diet and lifestyle and give you areas for improvement to help work towards your goals. Your nutrition plan will take into account your lifestyle, activities and general health. In addition to general dietary improvements, a Nutritionist can help specifically with the following:
- Weight Loss
- Sporting Performance
- Muscle Gain
- General Health
- Gut Issues such as IBS

+ Nutrition Consultations
This is your chance to sit down with a fully qualified and registered nutritionist to discuss your diet, lifestyle and goals. We can analyse your current diet and offer guidance on how you can adapt and change it to help achieve your goals, whether they are weight loss, performance, muscle gain or improved health. You will go away with a deeper understanding not only of what you should be eating, but WHY, helping you to make informed decisions when it comes to nutrition. This service includes a nutritional action plan that you can follow to help change your diet and lifestyle for the better. We normally recommend you book at least one follow-up nutrition consultation a few weeks down the line to check on your progress and make any necessary updates to your diet.
+ Meal Plans
If you are searching for an easy to follow, in depth and completely personalised guide to what you should be eating and when - a meal plan is for you. We will look at your current diet and your goals, and from there create a completely tailored meal plan that includes recipes you love, and that fit in with your time constraints. It will tell you what to eat and when to eat it, taking all of the thinking out of your diet and making it super easy for you to achieve your goals. With your meal plan, you can also book in for regular consultations to check in and update your progress. These will allow your Nutritionist to make any necesary adaptations to your plan, and add additional recipes or meals if necessary. You also have the option of a full support package, which will give you email and phoe contact with your Nutritionist, so that you can contact them throughout the weeks with any questions, queries or updates.

All nutrition services are fully bespoke and tailored to you - no two clients are the same, therefore no two nutrition services will be the same. Your service will take into account your timeframe and needs, and can include any combination of the above services, including a certain level of support and contact with your Nutritionist to keep you accountable.
Your initial nutrition consultation will take 45-60 minutes, during which time you will discuss your current situation, needs and goals. From there your Nutritionist will help you come up with an action plan and provide you with all the tools you need to achieve those goals. You will receive nutrition advice in your first session, and ongoing nutritional support depending on the service you choose.
