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.

As well as eating disorders including: Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia, Binge eating disorder, OSFED and Orthorexia. I have a particular specialist interest in ASD and eating disorders including ARFID. My aim is to treat every client holistically and compassionately.
