Nutrition counselling is an approach that integrates nutrition science, psychology and counselling skills. The emphasis is on being curious to your experience as a client and making sense of your symptoms so together, we can solve problems. No problem is too embarrassing or insignificant. Your quality of life is of paramount importance.

Psychogastroenterology – a dual-qualified highly specialised approach
Simone is registered as an associate with the Rome Foundation of Psychogastroenterology GI division and holds qualifications in psychology, counselling and nutrition. Her specialism is disordered eating and she has a broad interest in public health nutrition.
This offers a large, integrative lens in approaching problems that other practitioners may only approach from an exclusively psychological or biological perspective. By committing to studying both psychology and nutrition, the complexity of conditions involving both disciplines can be appreciated and incorporated into a treatment program. This means that clients/patients can benefit from a truly cohesive ‘in house’ approach to problems rather than shop around for and pay a separate therapist and nutritionist.
Simone’s approach is underpinned by evidence – both research and practice based.
