Cerebellum Consulting incorporates a range of clinicians under the one banner to provide high-quality care to your children. Therefore without hesitation, I wanted to be a part of the amazing work done at this private practice. As part of my position at Cerebellum Consulting, I will hold private consultants to discuss any nutrition-related issue and will provide all clients with practical and tailored strategies to help manage or overcome these. As a dietitian, I am a big advocate for good nutrition during childhood and I truly believe these can lead to long-term healthy behaviours into adulthood.
