We value the trust our clients place in us and do not take this trust for granted. We create and nurture positive relationships with our clients. We listen, we understand, and we do not make assumptions about our clients based on their medical condition. Our clients aren't put into a 'one size fits all' framework. We take the time to get to know them and build supports around them to make sure that their individual requirements are met.
Some of our clients have faced health challenges over a long period of time. We help them work through these challenges and fully support them on their path to better health.
We know that our client's needs can change over time. By adapting our advice to suit these changes, we help them achieve and maintain great results over the long-term. It's important that our clients know that we are on their team.
We give clear and straight forward nutrition advice that equips our clients with the knowledge and tools they need to navigate through the minefield of nutrition information and misinformation.
As a result, our clients develop the confidence to make positive choices that will change their lives for the better and guide them to a healthier, happier future.

We have a commitment to excellence in dietetic practice. That doesn't mean just staying up-to-date with current research; to us, it also means being part of it.
Our research has focused on the relationship between nutrition and muscle wasting in older adults, and is now expanding to include dietary interventions to improve bone health. Our aim is to contribute to healthy ageing and improve quality of life for older people.
Our ongoing research, in collaboration with the University of the Sunshine Coast, is published in international scientific journals.
