Qualified Dietitian | Bariatric Surgery Nutrition (pre and post)| Weight Loss | Gastrointestinal and Digestive issues

 

Hi, I’m Louise, and I’m a qualified Accredited Practising Dietitian who provides safe, evidence-based dietary advice and management to individuals (in health and disease). Seeing patients/clients for anything and everything in General Private Practice has necessitated having an excellent knowledge base and has provided me with a brilliant opportunity to utilise a large range of clinical skills. It is wonderful to observe improvements in my clients' health and wellbeing, anthropometric and biochemical measures as well as receiving positive feedback from them about how they feel about themselves and their quality of life now.

I truly relish the challenge of keeping up to date with all areas of clinical nutrition. However, I have a special interests in the following areas:

  • Bariatric Surgery (Sleeve Gastrectomy; Gastric Band; Intragastric Balloon; Gastric By-pass)
  • Weight loss
  • Gastrointestinal and Digestive concerns
    • Reflux (GORD)
    • Diverticular Disease
    • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

With a 17+ year background in Telecommunications, (more recently involving delivery of Dietetic consultations via Telehealth for a Tertiary Hospital), I have a proven track record for building rapport via phone and video (as well as in person).

Supporting patients pre and post Bariatric Surgery is a passion of mine. In an effort to explore ways for dietitians to support geographically remote patients post-bariatric surgery I conducted a research project which culminated in the publication of "Nutritional monitoring of patients post-bariatric surgery: implications for smartphone applications" in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, United Kingdom in 2017. 

Attending a recent Medical Nutrition Therapy for Bariatric Surgery course has provided me with the most up-to-date training in this area of nutrition and dietetics. I am also an Optifast® Accredited Practitioner and have training in Weight Management Psychology. 

Thanks for viewing my profile. I look forward to supporting you in achieving your wellness goals. 

Healthy Regards

Louise.
