Bulk Billing Dietitian
Rachel has a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics with experience working in hospital and community settings with clients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, reflux disease, IBS, poor nutrition and weight management.
Rachel can put together a personalised eating plan which is easy to put into action which will help you make improvements in your health and management of your condition. Rachel has experience in coaching individuals to help you take a whole-person approach to healthy and long-term weight loss. Eating is a behaviour as much as it is a science and Rachel has extensive experience in this area including using simple steps and strategies to help clients through the these changes.
Rachel has experience working with people with disordered eating patterns and has completed a number of post graduate courses in eating disorders. I use motivational interviewing techniques to help people understand what drives their change and help them put in place plans that will lead to success. Rachel also has a keen interest in gut health and IBS with extensive experience working with clients in the hospital, community and private practice settings in this area.
A bit about me…
I completed my Master of Dietetics at Griffith University in 2011 and spent the past 10 years working in hospitals and community settings before focusing more on helping people in both one to one and group settings to improve their health using behaviour change techniques. I love the quiet pace of the southern end of the Gold Coast including the beaches and hinterland.
I enjoy helping people with disordered eating patterns to develop a more balanced and healthy relationship with food. I take a non-judgemental and gentle approach so that people can progress at their own pace. I avoid using a ‘one size fits all approach’ and like to tailor my plans completely to the individual. I really enjoy helping people with chronic diseases, especially diabetes. I can see people on a care plan from their GP and am happy to bulk-bill so that everyone has an opportunity to see a dietitian regardless of their financial situation. I will also consider if my clients would be suited to join our free lifestyle support program – My Health for Life, for additional and long term support.
Some of the ways I can help:
- Diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure
- Chronic diarrhoea, constipation and overall gut health
- IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and low FODMAP diets
- Diverticular disease
- Non-Alcoholic Liver Disease
- Coeliac Disease
- Healthy Weight management and a non-diet approach
