With nine years of extensive and varied experience providing dietary advice in the areas of gastroenterology and surgery, I have honed my skills in crafting personalised nutritional plans. My advice reflects my commitment to evidence based and individualised care.

My specialities include tailored approaches to IBS (including using the low FODMAP diet where appropriate), IBD, coeliac disease and SIBO. I also have extensive experience in areas including pancreatitis and high output stomas.

I am passionate about providing holistic advice and work closely with gastroenterologists and surgeons to provide high quality care.
