Dietetics at South Eastern Active Health

Dietitians are university qualified nutrition professionals, specifically trained in a wide range of skills and clinical experience.

At South Eastern Active Health, our Dietitian Rebecca does a lot more than help people lose weight and hand out short-term meal plans. Rebecca can help you identify food intolerances and sensitivities, control gut symptoms (like bloating, constipation and diarrhoea), address nutritional deficiencies and manage medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, gastrointestinal conditions, and improve hormone health.

Rebecca provides individualised medical nutrition therapy, an individual evidenced-based approach to treating conditions through individually tailored nutrition advice. She understands how food affects your body and which foods are most nourishing to optimise your health.

Our experienced dietitian, Rebecca strives to educate, support and work collaboratively with her clients to translate evidence-based nutrition recommendations into practical real-life strategies. Rather than restricting the foods you eat, she encourages clients to improve the diversity of their diet by incorporating more nutrient-dense food, tailored to improve individual health concerns.

Rebecca practises with a holistic and empathetic approach, taking into consideration not only physical health but other important dimensions of health including mental, emotional and social health when working one-on-one with her clients. Her aim is to give her clients the support and tools they need to achieve their health goals and eat with ease.

Rebecca has particular interests optimising food and nutrition for gut health, mental health and chronic disease. She is passionate about empowering people to feel well and live their best lives no matter where they are starting from.
