About Joanna

My Story

Expert Dietitian for you and your business

You are most likely to find me in the kitchen, baking or cooking and adding my own special touches to recipes! I have always been a keen cook from a young age and have passion for helping people live a healthier life through diet. Becoming a registered Dietitian was the perfect solution to combine both my passions.

 

Since qualifying in 2004 I have worked as a Specialist Dietitian at Kings College Hospital, one of London’s largest teaching hospitals. I have developed and led their specialist cancer service and over the years I have gained a wide range of experience in many other areas of nutrition.


I am also a mum of 3 so completely understand the need to provide healthy, tasting meals and fast!

 

So, what has led me here? The media is constantly swamped with information about nutrition so it can be really difficult to separate the fact from the fiction. I am really passionate about getting the correct info out there and following evidence-based nutrition which is the foundation of being a registered Dietitian.

Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law, and are governed by an ethical code to ensure that they always work to the highest standard.

WHAT ABOUT NUTRITIONISTS?

IS THEIR TITLE PROTECTED BY LAW?

NO. 

Anyone can call themselves a Nutritionist, a Nutritional Therapist, a Clinical Nutritionist or a Diet Expert.

 

They are not permitted by law to call themselves dietitians.

 

Only registrants with the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN) can call themselves a Registered Nutritionist (RNutrs).

 

I have over 14 years experience helping and supporting people change their diet and lifestyle 

So how can I help you?
