Dietitian & Nutritionist
Natalie graduated from London Metropolitan University in 2016 with a First Class degree in Dietetics and Nutrition (BSc Hons). During her student placement she had assisted a Dietitian delivering SOS Feeding Therapy sessions for picky eaters and was fascinated by what she saw. She then went on to volunteer as an assistant to learn more about the SOS Approach to Feeding. After qualifying as a Dietitian Natalie was fortunate enough to work in this field again within the NHS. She completed formal training in the SOS Approach and was able to use her skills and knowledge to help children increase their range and volume of foods, and to help families have more enjoyable meal times. Now a mother, Natalie has first hand experience of some of the challenges that come with parenthood and food refusal, as well as a deeper understanding of how to overcome them.
Natalie's other passion in nutrition is for empowering clients to achieve their health goals through diet and lifestyle adaptations. She has delivered general nutrition clinics for the NHS and worked in a Dublin hospital, where she helped patients to manage a variety of health conditions through tailored nutritional advice. She has a keen interest in behaviour change strategies and enjoys sharing these with her clients, so that they have the tools to make effective lifestyle changes that are maintained in the long-term.
Natalie believes that successful long-term health plans are not only based on scientific evidence, but are also practical and flexible. She has a collaborative and holisitc approach to her work and takes care to understand each client she works with - she understands that the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts!
Natalie is based in Naas, Co. Kildare, but can work with clients anywhere in Ireland through secure video call.
