Hi, I'm Sara
I'm a New Zealand Registered Nutritionist currently dividing my working life between industry and private practice, where I work with individuals and small groups.
In terms of paperwork, I have a Health Science degree in Psychology and a newly minted Master's of Science in Human Nutrition. I have completed the 'Psychological Approaches for Weight Concerns' module with ACFED (makeing me a bronze level practitioner) and am currently undergoing training to become a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. I also have qualifications in Personal Training, but that was so long ago it had might as well be a past life! I have been working in various sectors 'health and fitness' for nearly 25 years.
I believe that looking after yourself should not be stressful and am particularly passionate about helping people get off the endless diet rollercoaster and start living life. I can help you improve your relationship with food if it's gone off track. Food should be one of life's pleasures, not a source of concern. As well as helping with 'diet rehab', I greatly enjoy working with people that want to feel better and have more energy particularly those that are approaching the 'wise years'. Other areas where you'll find me doing nutrition, are with post bariatric patients and those that would like to manage disease risk factors such as high cholesterol.
If you'd like to explore whether working with me is right for you, give me a call or text on 021 104 2631 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
