Welcome to Emma Claire Nutrition A partnership between my intuition and your nutrition

About Me

Meet Emma Claire

Hello, I’m Emma, an HCPC registered Dietitian with over 10 years experience working in the NHS and member of the British Dietetic Association (BDA).

I graduated from the University of Surrey in 2009 with a first degree honours and since have been privileged to gain over 10 years experience working in acute hospitals covering medical wards and outpatient clinics. I’ve specialised in HIV, gastroenterology and oncology and have an extensive knowledge of nutrition support and treating malnutrition.

The ever evolving world of nutrition is fascinating and exciting but can be full of mistruths and misinformations. A core value of my practice is knowledge of the latest evidence and emerging practices. More than being a job to myself dietetics is a passion and through listening to accredited webinars, professional podcasts and undertaking courses I remain up to date and dedicated to evidence based practice.

I can confidently help you navigate and improve nutritional related issues in a variety of conditions and disease states including IBS, Inflammatory bowel disease and Oncology. I specialise in nutrition support especially post hospital stay nutrition and can be a guiding hand on your journey surrounding healthy eating and relationship with your body.

What makes a Dietitian the choice for you – “Dieticians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and have an ethical code of conduct similar to doctors. This means that you, as patients/clients, and protected and can be assured that you will get the latest credible evidence-based information (BDA (c) 2021)

My Ethos

I believe passionately that together we can make a difference to your life and work on achieving the changes you want to make to any aspect of your nutrition. I want to look to see what truly matters to you, what are the goals in your life that include and extend beyond food and how we can work together to achieve them, be that be able to walk every day comfortably with your dog or feel more confident in choosing healthy choices for your family.

When it comes to your nutrition and Diet there is absolutely no one size that fits all and every day can be different but importantly it’s you that is the expert. Food choices are impacted daily by emotions, stressors and sleep to name a few and at the core of my work with you will be to equip you with the tools you need to make the choices you want every day.

Building a healthy relationship with food and your body

Your food choices and how you feel about them and your body are built on many factors, from previous experiences to the pressures of life, your sleep and work patters. I work in a holistic manner to explore these influences and how we can build sustainable.

Digestive Issues

I have an In Depth knowledge and over 10 years’ experience of working with a range of Digestive issues in the field of Gastroenterology including allergies, IBS, Coeliac disease and Inflammatory bowel disease. I am experienced in identifying triggers and that aren’t always only diet related elimination diets and how to incoporate the widest range of foods to give you the widest most balanced diet to keep you happy.

Oncological Support

With extensive knowledge of nutrition throughout the cancer journey I am here to support and guide you, knowing each stage will have a different nutritional and emotional need.

Nutrition Support

If you or a loved one are experiencing unintentional weight loss or loss of appetite as a consequence of an underlying illness, cancer treatment or post hospital stay I have over 10 years experience in this field and many tricks up my sleeve. Inadequate nutrition can have profound negative consequences and yet with support and encouragement fortifying foods and the right choices can make a huge difference.

Group education

I am experienced in group education and love working with groups of all sizes. I am an engaging, energetic public speaker and can provide and deliver dynamic presentations on many nutrition topics from corporate events to work places or church groups.

Your Choice

How We Work Together

I offer a range of flexible appointments including evenings and weekends.

An 60 -90 minute initial consultation is £70 and every 45-60 minute follow up is £55.

Whilst meeting in person is restricted

During this time I am happy to suit your preferred means of communication via telephone, zoom/skype or another form of video consultation.

When we can meet in person!

One to one consults – Meeting space in a clinic location in the Medway area

Walking consultations – For the first or follow up consultations where I meet you at a preferred location and or suggest a choice for a walk during which we take a stroll and conduct the consultation whilst getting a little gentle exercise!

Home visits – I am the mother to an energetic toddler and wide to an equally energetic husband who follows a plant based diet. I have a real understanding of balancing everyone’s individual dietary preferences and how they work together to enjoy family meals both in and outside the home. It is important to be able to apply what we talk about to your home and surroundings.

I feel that including your family and friends or others who form a significant part of your life in your dietary plan is extremely valuable and can significantly impact on how you implement any changes going forwards.

During a home visist we can:

Look through current food shipping choices and what we can do together to incorporate these in any changes you may want to make.

Discuss recipes and meal ideas with all the family. I believe firmly in empowering you and family members to take education and tools and learn how to incorporate it in a practical fun way into your life that you can continue and build on yourselves.

Supermarket visits – A favourite aspect of my service is going together to the supermarket or food shop of your choice and whilst we shop look at food labels and food choices. Discuss foods that you can buy to incorporate into any changes you want to make.

What To Expect

Consultation

An informal chat to get to know what advice and support you are looking for depending on how we can work together.

How you would like to measure the success of our work, I will only advise weighing yourself or taking other measurements if that is appropriate and important to you.

A chat about what goals you would like to work on first and develop an actionable plan you can take away and use.

Written information on the topics we have discussed to support you at home. I do not believe that set diet plans are the right way forward for many people and instead will encourage you to come up with your own strategies and food choices which you will have knowledge of and can be incorporated into your day life as each day is different.

Skills and education I can provide

Teach practical ways to cook meals your family can adopt and formulate your own recipe book.

How to read and use food labels.

Understanding portion sizes and adapt these to different members of your family.

On-going support and contact

I understand that new concerns and questions (faced with eating in a new restaurant and unsure what to choose!?) come up between visits and I am happy to provide text message or email support between visits.

Testimonials

When I was suffering with some discomfort in the stomach Emma was very helpful in explaining some options to try to help alleviate the symptoms. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Emma to seek any further advice with digestive problems
