Eating Disorder Dieticians
Elle BSc (Hons), MSc, R.D., N.S.
Elle is a specialist dietitian with a deep passion for supporting young people and adults in their recovery from eating disorders and disordered eating. Nutrition is a highly individual and personal topic for everyone and I provide a compassionate, non-judgemental and realistic approach to helping clients to heal their relationship with food and live a life without restriction. Disordered eating is becoming almost normalised in today’s society and nutrition misconceptions and faddy advice circulates us everywhere we look so it is really important to me that I educate my clients on the basics of nutrition to help them navigate through the myths and find a dietary approach that works for them. I encompass an every food fits approach, encouraging clients to remove good and bad food labels and stop demonising foods and food groups.
Growing up in the countryside of Ireland, I have a love for exploring the outdoors and all sports. I also have a masters in applied sports nutrition and can help both recreational and elite level clients enhance their performance through nutritional education.Elle will be hosting talks in schools on Sports nutrition next year and is available for provide consultations.
Elle currently works heading up an inpatient eating disorders clinic so she will be working with us on a part time basis. If you know anyone that needs our support please do share this post with them.
Rob BSc (Hons), MSc, R.D., N.S.
Rob who is so easy to talk to and an extraordinary clinician with a wealth of experience specifically with eating disorders with people all ages including children and teenagers.
Rob is a specialist eating disorder dietician with a background working for the NHS CAMHS teams, inpatient adolescent units and in paediatrics at a childrens hospital with children as young as 7 with eating disorders.
He is highly qualified with a masters in dietetics, he has also lectured in dietetics and conducted research on various aspects of eating disorders.
More and more boys are presenting with eating disorders and find working with a male clinician helpful so it’s great to have Rob as part of the team.
