Chantal deSousa

Hi! I’m Chantal and I am an Accredited Practicing Dietitian with an interest in the nutrition and wellbeing of all individuals. I have a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetic Practice from Bond University and a Bachelor of Medical Research (with Honours) from the University of Tasmania.

Since graduating, I have been working in private practice and aged care. I am very interested in gut health and have post-graduate certification from Monash University in IBS management. I have experience helping people manage their weight and chronic diseases. I am not one of those dietitians who will tell you to stop eating your favourite foods. I prefer to develop personalised eating plans that you enjoy and make you feel good while improving your health. The benefit of seeing a dietitian is that you can eat some of what you like while improving your health!
