Nutrition affects every aspect of our lives. However, what often gets forgotten is that there are aspects of our lives that affect our nutrition – such as our preferences, our lifestyle, and our cultural backgrounds.

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.

Your Dietitian understands that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to diet and nutrition (in other words, what works for one person may be different to what works for another). The truth is there are many ways for people to have a healthy diet, and it’s at this individual level that your Dietitian can help. They consider the whole person – that is, each person’s unique profile, such as their medical history, as well as their needs, goals and lifestyle. They also assess the body of scientific evidence and are flexible with the advice and support they offer, on a case-by-case basis.

During your initial assessment, your Dietitian will gain an understanding of your desired outcomes, lifestyle, dietary and exercise habits. Your Dietitian will then work in partnership with you to set smaller goals as steps towards a larger outcome.

Dietitians can work across a variety of areas, including (but not limited to):

General health and well-being including weight loss, and improving energy levels.
Women’s health including fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding, hormonal imbalances, PCOS, endometriosis.
Chronic condition management e.g. Diabetes (inc. Gestational), Cardiovascular Disease, Coeliac Disease, irritable bowel + digestive issues.
Nutrition for performance g. marathons, cycling events or getting more out of a workout.

Student Osteopath

I am currently undertaking my final year as an Osteopathy student at RMIT University in Melbourne. Before my current studies, I completed a Bachelor in Exercise Science & Human movement at Victoria University.

The ability to help people return to doing the things they love, such as exercising, playing sports, or even completing simple daily activities drew me to the field of Osteopathy. Outside of the field, I am a big sports fan, in particular soccer. Whether it be watching or playing, I have always been around the sport from a young age. Some of my other interests include cycling and experiencing other cultures through food and travel.
