Overview

About me

*PAEDIATRIC DIETITIAN*
I am a registered dietitian with the HCPC and the British Dietetic Association and I 16 years experience, working with adults for 10 years before specialising in Paediatrics for the last 7 years. I have a particular interest in the nutrition and health of children and their families. If you have any health concerns about you or your child and you wish to consult me for advice I will provide you with professional and up to date scientific evidence based dietary treatment on you or your child’s complaint.

What to expect.
The consultation will be informal and relaxed. I consult from rooms in Magherafelt, and Galgorm or I can do home visits. I will ask questions to get information about the signs and symptoms of the complaint and ask about you or your child's diet history. This is to gather clues and link symptoms together with the foods you’re eating to ascertain the best dietary treatment. I will weigh and measure you and I may request your G.P to take a blood sample to test for nutritional deficiencies. Every person is different, what works for one does not always work for another so my advice is tailored to the individual.

I believe in using good quality ingredients when cooking food so I will provide practical recipes and shopping tips to you to help make any changes required easy to implement. I can also do some practical cooking with you and your child in your own home if you would like to build up your skills in the kitchen.

I have children of my own and know first hand as well as working closely with sick children and their parents the trials and stresses of dealing with children who can't or won't eat. I believe very much in a whole family approach and often my advice will benefit other family members.
