You've come to the right place!
We are Nichola and Tig, Dietitians with more than 20 years of NHS experience between us. We have accrued masses of nutritional knowledge and can break down nutrition science into manageable bite-sized chunks, so you don't have to.
There's so much information about nutrition at our fingertips it's easy to become bamboozled and overwhelmed. One minute fats are bad, then they're good; it's challenging to know what's what.
That's where we come in, nutrition is our passion, and we live and breathe all things science. We sift the fact from fiction, so you don't have to, and we deliver dietary advice in a simple tailored way. Hence, it is easy to follow, and you have a clear action plan to help you achieve your health goals.
We are a trusty, reliable source of information and break down the science around why what you eat can have positive and negative effects on your body and brain, depending on what you're experiencing. Food is neither good nor bad, but sometimes you need specific advice about navigating your plate.
What's the difference? Knowing who you're working with and their credentials are essential. We are all about the scientific evidence base, which is vital to maintain our registration as Dietitians. To clarify any confusion around spelling, Dietician is how our American colleagues spell our professional title; we drop the 'c' in the UK.
We work with people like you who struggle to determine if they need to change their diet. You don't need to wait for a referral from a doctor. You book a time to talk to us about what you need help with, so there are no long waiting times to sort out those niggles.
Are you struggling to determine if a particular food is the cause of your gut problems? You've heard of the low fodmap diet, but it sounds tricky, and you're desperate to manage the bloating.
You might have been yo-yo dieting for years, and the latest fad diet is one step too far. You're not sure what to do next, but you know a quick fix, isn't it?
You might have had a life-changing event such as a cancer diagnosis or a burn injury and want specific advice to help you heal or get through treatment. So how can we help you?
Our approach to nutrition focuses on you and what you can sensibly fit into your daily life and routine. Everyone is different, so we do not take a one-size-fits-all view. We can help you plan meals to fit around the advice we have given to help keep you on track with the goals you are working on that mean the most to you.
Part of what a registered dietitian does is listen. We work with you to figure out what your day-to-day life looks like, what you want to achieve from dietary counselling and how we will get you there. And more importantly, is it realistic?
Grumbling gut symptoms are no joke. Whether you can't go to the loo or you're going too much.
It can be lonely if you are struggling with mental health. Food can make a big difference in how we think and feel.
Managing weight is hard. Does yo-yo dieting sound familiar?
Do you want to try something different?
We take heart health seriously. Keeping a healthy ticker is essential to keep your body functioning.
There are many myths about what you can eat and can't with a cancer diagnosis.
What you eat plays a big part in healing. If you have a burn or a wound, we can support you with knowing what to eat.
We love seeing clients in person. You can find us in our clinic at Sage Therapy Centre, 635 Western Boulevard, Nottingham NG8 5GS.
We have embraced technology which means you can access a dietitian from any location with our virtual clinic. We can work with you to create a dietary action plan whether you are in Liverpool or Lands End.
You might need more time to be ready to work with us directly or want reassurance that you're along the right lines with nutritional information. We have a range of do-it-yourself guides and e-books you can access at your own pace.
Are you looking for a nutrition expert to translate the evidence base into easily readable content? We've worked on many projects, such as writing articles on nutrition and health conditions, recipes or menu planning.
Whether it's an App, you're looking to develop or need an expert opinion on the nutritional aspects of a product. We can bring the missing piece-to- your team with expert guidance and up-to-date research in hand.
"Talking to someone and knowing that someone was listening to my concerns was great. I knew I was getting a personal service and that helped me to feel better immediately. Nichola cared about my well-being as much as my physical issues. There is nothing I can think of to improve, except maybe some recipes that are tried and tested by people experiencing the same issues. I had a great experience and I know that I can access the service again if needed"
"Tig has been a delight to work with and has a vast knowledge of complex injuries and trauma and the impact this has on the body and mind. She has a great ability to connect quickly with people and put them at ease while gathering information and not losing sight of their individual goals"
Yes! We have a lovely clinic space at Sage Therapy Centre on Western Boulevard; we are halfway between Queens Medical Centre and City Hospital. There is space for parking. The clinic has easy access to bus routes and the Nottingham tram system.
Yes! We offer virtual appointments using Microsoft Teams. You can access a Dietitian from the comfort of your own home or during a lunch break. Not great with technology? That's ok; we can offer you a telephone appointment.
All of our appointments are 1 hour in length. You may only need one appointment if your condition is straightforward or you need reassurance. If your situation is more complex, you may need more appointments, for example, if you are a new Coeliac Disease client or you are undertaking a low FODMAP diet. We can guide you during a discovery call or at your first consultation regarding how many sessions you may need.
We currently do not work with babies or very young children. We can support teenagers and young adults depending on their condition. Please get in touch to discuss this in more detail.
Please visit our booking page, where you can book an appointment online. We take debit or credit cards and Paypal as payment methods. If you would like to pay for your appointments in instalments, please get in touch to discuss this further.
Yes! We take medical insurance with several insurance companies. If you are a client with BUPA, WPA, CIGNA and AVIVA. If you would like to use medical insurance to pay for your sessions, please get in touch with your membership and authorisation details.
