My approach is scientific yet holistic. I am very empathetic and supportive and my advice is practical, achievable, sustainable, and enjoyable! Nutrition is just one aspect of whole-body health, but an integral one that plays a huge part in both physical and mental wellness.
I can help you with a bespoke nutrition advice that focuses on what is important for you and addressing the challenges you may be facing. I would feel grateful to be part of your journey of taking control of your food and nutrition and feeling your best!
I am a NZ Registered Dietitian with over 15 years + experience working in a range of settings from the hospital to the community and private rehab space. More recently I have enjoyed teaching beekeeping and sustainable cooking at my kid's school. Over the years my focus and approach has grown to a more holistic one and while food and nutrition continues to be my passion, I now look at stress, sleep, movement, and breath work in a little more depth.
Through personal life experiences, extensive study and a broad range of work , I have managed my own IBS and hormonal imbalances with nutrition and lifestyle modification. I love to spend time with my kids in nature, practise yoga, and am a passionate and committed lifetime learner to anything food, nutrition, health, and wellness related.

Looking forward to a follow up appointment." Anna
