Helen Gibbs - NZ Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Consultant - Dunedin

Are you seeking diet-related advice, education, and counselling?

Perhaps you’re wondering whether improving your diet could enhance your well-being and health. Maybe you’ve attempted lifestyle changes, only to revert to old habits. Or perhaps you’ve had consultations but struggled to implement the advice into your meals.

If you’ve attempted self-diagnosis, you may have turned to the internet, where there’s an abundance of nutrition information—some helpful, some not so much.

Navigating through nutrition guidance as a solution to health issues can be challenging. For professional nutrition advice, you might want to consider consulting a dietitian.

Dietitians are registered health professionals with post-graduate qualifications in dietetics.

Dietetics is the bridge between nutrition and medicine. We are the experts on the prevention and management of diseases that have an aspect of diet change in their care pathways.

Who Can Benefit From Dietetic Advice And Support?

Is it everyone? Not always! Some individuals may not feel ready or see the need to take steps toward making changes.

If you are prepared and well enough to implement changes, we can discuss your expectations. Food and lifestyle modifications can yield remarkable improvements for most of my clients.

I collaborate closely with other healthcare professionals to optimise your overall health.

Following an initial consultation, if necessary, I may refer you to another professional who can assist in improving your physical or psychological well-being before we commence our work together.

What About Gastrointestinal Health?

For specialised care in this area, particularly regarding the FODMAP diet, I recommend consulting with dietitians who specialise in this area. If we find your gastrointestinal symptoms need prioritising after I undertake an assessment, I am happy to refer you to other colleagues.

Do I See Children?

As a rule, I only work with clients aged 18 or older. However, I will work with the parents of children who have larger bodies. These sessions are focused on addressing how the parents can best support the child without perpetuating weight bias and discrimination.

I Live Away From Dunedin Can I Still See You?

I offer both face-to-face and virtual clinical appointments. Currently, I run face-to-face clinics in Dunedin and Oamaru.

Still Not Certain About Booking?

On Monday each week I have time set aside for complimentary 10 minute phone calls so you can check if we can work together. Please email to book one of these times.
