Individual consultations

Marna Oettle, RD (BSc Med Hons Nutrition & Dietetics; BSc Psych.; MSc Physiol. Sciences)

Nutrition therapy is available for the following conditions:

  • Emotional eating, overeating, binge eating & disordered eating (including restrictive eating disorders such as Anorexia)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome & gut health
  • Plant-based nutrition

Number of consultations needed

The number of consultations that you require will vary depending on factors such as your diagnosis and goals. However, a minimum of two sessions is required for effective assessment and planning to take place. For optimal results, a long-term supportive relationship is advisable – especially in the context of disordered eating.

Virtual consultations

All consultations can be conducted virtually (via Zoom / Microsoft Teams). No matter where you are, all you need is a good internet connection.

First consultation

During your first consultation (60 – 75 minutes), a comprehensive nutritional assessment will take place, and we will get to know each other. After discussing the goals that you want to achieve, I will develop a step-wise action plan based on your current lifestyle, goals and preferences.

Follow-up consultations

During follow up visits (40 – 50 minutes), we will continue the process of monitoring your progress and setting realistic goals together. If you are keeping a food diary, I will provide feedback and make recommendations. We will discuss relevant nutrition topics, such as flexibility, eating in social situations, label reading, meal planning, etc.
