About Susan McCabe BSc (Hons) RD
I studied a 4 year degree in Nutrition & Dietetics at The University of Surrey, one of the Uk’s Top 10 Universities. I have vast experience working in a range of clinical settings from GP surgeries, Hospitals and clinics. I began my career in private practice along side a part-time role specialising in Adult Obesity. I then moved on to work as an acute dietitian within a busy NHS hospital where I furthered my clinical skills and medical knowledge. Since working within the NHS I took on the role as a mental health dietitian (which I love!) at The Priory, a specialist mental health hospital. I currently work on a specialist Asperger’s unit as well as on a general psychiatric ward. Mental health conditions I work with include: ASD, Anxiety, depression, schizophrenia and personality disorders. I also work with eating disorders including: Anorexia Nervosa, bulimia and binge eating disorder. My aim is to treat every client holistically and compassionately. I use evidence-based practice approaches that suit each individuals treatment plan this includes NICE guidelines as well as approached from Health at every size (HAES). I also facilitate weekly group sessions where I teach mindful eating.
Other areas I specialise in include Obesity and IBS. I am Kings College London trained to deliver the Low FODMAP diet for functional gastrointestinal disorders.
My freelance work is hugely varied including Media interviews, clinics, work shops and family nutrition. As well as working with Companies to advise on new products, working with Solicitors, Case managers and appointed deputy's for those who lack mental capacity. I love new challenges and I am looking forward to potentially working with you!.
