How I Teach: VIDEO LEARNING
About Me: Registration with the Association for Nutrition (the only professional body regulating nutritionists in the UK) shows that I’m held to the highest standard of evidence-based practice aka science. It also means I’ve had proper training and hold legit degree qualifications in nutrition.
My training began when I moved to Scotland to study for an MSc in Human Nutrition at the University of Aberdeen. Here I was based at the Rowett Institute which has a super long history of leading nutrition research in the UK and beyond. This gave me a proper grounding in the scientific approach and how to apply critically apply evidence to what and how we eat!
Having qualified with a distinction in my MSc I moved to London for a nutrition internship at the British Nutrition Foundation, followed by a brief position as Assistant Nutrition Scientist before moving back to Aberdeen (for love (emoji)).
The Non-Diet Approach
While living in London I began to hear about a different approach to nutrition and health. One that doesn’t demonise or stigmatise based on how you look, or try and tell you that your body isn’t ‘good enough’. I rapidly began researching and digesting everything I could to learn more about the non-diet approach, as there had always been something about the world of weight loss that hadn’t sat right with me.
I’ve sat through far too many lectures where professors blindly state “we don’t have any way to help people lose weight and keep it off… I guess we just haven’t found the right diet yet”. But what if diets aren’t the answer?!
I know from personal experience how damaging diet culture can be. I was once completely immersed in it, in what I call my ‘diet days’… I used to lull myself to sleep by counting how many calories I ate in a day, then drag myself on a 6am run because I ate ‘too much’ the day before. Food rules dictated my whole life!
This is why I’ve dedicated my time to helping others to move away from the yo-yo diet cycle and re-learn intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is an evidence based approach that can help you to feel more relaxed around food, more in tune with your own needs and better able to trust your body.
This is the type of nutrition I advocate for and I’m helping to bring this approach to Scotland to help people turn their backs on diet culture and make meaningful changes to their diet and lifestyle in ways that they actually want to keep up!

So often in our healthcare system weight loss is the first call-to-action but often there are so many other things we can do to manage any conditions and improve health.
