Online Dietitan & Nutritionist
I'm a Dietitian, Nutritionist and Health Coach holding a Bachelors of Health Science and Masters of Dietetics. As an Accredited Practising Dietitian, I'm qualified to give both general and medical advice, and am passionate about helping people make real, sustainable changes that will improve their daily lives. Having worked with a variety of clients in both private practice and community health, I have the expertise to help you understand nutrition and implement changes. I get so much joy and energy out of eating in a healthy, tasty and social way and I aim to help you to do the same.
I am trained to help you manage a wide range of nutrition related issues including but not limited to:
○ Low energy and fatigue
○ Health and wellbeing
○ Weight management
○ Plant based eating
○ Ethical and sustainable eating
○ Food intolerances
○ Nutrient deficiencies
○ Irritable bowel syndrome
○ Type 2 diabetes
○ High blood pressure
○ High Cholesterol
With no travel time to and from a clinic you can easily slot your appointment into your day. Have your appointment on your lunch break, parked in your car or with your morning coffee. All you need is a device.
No one likes sitting in clinic waiting rooms or spending an hour talking to someone across a desk . Link in where ever you like, wear what ever you want and settle in for a comfortable chat.
Can’t remember the name of the supplement you take? Or what type of milk you use ? When we meet online and you are at home you have easy access to your pantry, kitchen and medicine cabinet.
Nutrition counselling is all about productive, informative conversations. Being in a hands-off profession means I can give you the same quality service as I would in person with all the convenience of being online.
Initial (55 minutes): $110
Reviews (30 mins): $80
Cancellation less than 24 hours before the appointment: 50% of the session cost
If you feel that we have lots to talk about you can always book an initial (even if it isn’t your first session)
As per Dietitians Australia:
“Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are university-qualified professionals that undertake ongoing training and education programs to ensure that they are your most up-to-date and credible source of nutrition information. They translate scientific health and nutrition information into practical advice, and practise in line with DAA Professional Standards.
By seeing a dietitian you can have peace of mind that you are talking to someone who has the training and knows their stuff.
You need a device (computer, tablet or phone) with access to the internet and a camera.
You can use your device's microphone but I find we can hear each other better if you use headphones with an inbuilt microphone.
If you don’t have a device with a camera we can arrange a phone consult.
At your appointment time, if you don’t appear in the online meeting, I will just call you and either sort out the problem or continue by telephone.
No, you don’t need a referral to make an appointment but you may need one to be eligible for a rebate for the session.
In order to get a rebate from medicare you need a chronic disease management plan also know as an EPC.
The current medicare rebate for dietitians is $54.60 per session
Please contact your GP to find out if you are eligible and ensure that the referral is made out to me
If you have private health insurance ‘extras cover’ you may be eligible for a rebate.
Contact your private health provider to check if you are covered and if Telehealth appointments are included
In preparation for our appointment it is a good idea to have think about what you normally eat - some people have an easy time recalling their day to day eating and others find it helpful to keep a food diary.
I recommend testing out zoom and your tech prior to the session to make the most of our appointment time.
Finally, write down any questions you have so that we can discuss them during the session.
