1) How is the consultation conducted?
The consultation is conducted via Zoom, and you will be sent all of the details in your confirmation and reminder emails. If for some reason, we cannot use Zoom, I will telephone you.
2) What experience does Sallyanne have?
Sallyanne has been an Accredited Practising Dietitian for 30 years. To maintain her accreditation status she is required to complete continuing professional development each year.
She conducted her Masters (Hons Science) research in dietetic practice guidelines for type 2 diabetes. Sallyanne’s research provided the foundation for the national guidelines for dietitians. She has maintained a keen interest in this area for her entire career.
Sallyanne has worked in community health settings, research, health retreats, integrative medical centres and hospitals as a dietitian and manager of health services.
Her interest in a mindfulness based approach to eating and living began during her own recovery from restrictive and comfort eating habits after her brother died suddenly.
Sallyanne was introduced to Chinese medicine in the first seven years after graduation, soon after her brother’s death. Her interest in and appreciation of Eastern nutrition grew after spending travelling in Nepal and India.
The Eating for You approach has evolved from her own experiences, Eastern health principles together with western science, and the experiences of her clients.
3) Who are the consultations for?
Sallyanne is currently assisting ladies seeking support for:
- Emotional eating habits and binge eating,
- Disordered eating,
- Body weight,
- Lifestyle diseases such as type 2 diabetes.
- A personalised and long term solution to their eating for these conditions and illnesses.
