My passion for nutrition and dietetics comes from a deep desire to transform lives. I am fascinated with the power of nutrients and healthy habits in preventing and managing disease. I truly enjoy empowering clients and seeing them become happier and healthier versions of themselves.
I earned my BS in Nutrition & Dietetics form the American University of Beirut, Lebanon with High Distinction. After that, I worked in both hospital and private settings where I managed patients with a multitude of conditions in need of nutrition support.
After moving to London, I became a Registered Dietitian with the Health & Care Professionals Council and currently I also work as an Eating Disorders Specialist Dietitian at a private hospital.
During my extensive experience as a dietitian, I have used evidence-based guidelines and up-to-date literature in addition to my own experience, to provide Medical Nutrition Therapy and counselling for various medical conditions and diseases including:
- Weight management such as bariatric, obesity and overweight.
- Behavioural health such as depression, eating disorders and disordered eating.
- Woman’s health such as PCOS, fertility, hormone balance and pregnancy.
I also have significant experience in effectively using the media to reach out to the public and deliver key nutritional education messages. I have co-hosted several health radio programs in Lebanon and appeared on multiple regional TV shows. This made me aware of the importance of utilizing these tools and I have since been actively engaged on online platforms where I have given courses and training programs as well as consultations.
How we will work together
During the initial appointment, I will conduct a thorough dietetic assessment. We will go through the food you eat, symptoms you experience, medical history, eating habits and lifestyle. Using this information, I will analyse your nutritional status and health concerns. Together we will develop a plan to address them, which will be detailed in your initial report. The follow up appointments are for reviewing your progress, solving any difficulties and providing you with the support and motivation needed to achieve your goals.
How I can support you
It is my continuous aspiration as a dietitian to empower you and be your guide on this health transformational journey. Together we will explore the power of nutritious food and healthy eating habits. I also utilize psychological and behavioural change techniques in addition to nutrition education to ensure you get life-changing results.
