Dietitian & Nutrition Service

What is Dietetics and Nutritional Support?

According to the British Dietetic Association (BDA) ‘dietetics is the science of how nutrition affects our health. Scientific studies have shown how a change to our diet can help prevent or control a variety of health problems. Dietitians are the only qualified and regulated health professionals within the UK that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems’.

Our dietitian, Jenny, has been working as a HCPC registered specialist eating disorder dietitian within the NHS for over 15 years. She has extensive experience of working with eating disorders/disordered eating, as well as offering dietetic support to the following: vegetarian and vegan diets; polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS); pregnancy and mental health; bone health and nutrition; healthy eating; lactose intolerance; and milk free diets.

Jenny also works within our dietetic and nutrition service here at Talking EDs: Eating Disorder Service Scotland. She can also provide general dietetic advice and support for non-eating disorder conditions too. Jenny can provide online appointments to anyone in the UK.

'I have found it really helpful to have some sessions with a dietitian and a therapist.I felt it was helpful to see my therapist on a weekly basis and my dietitian once a month. I know I can make an appointment with the dietitian more often though, if I need to'.
