Lucy is a registered dietitian who specialises in diet for gut disorders, digestive health and weight management. Lucy trained in Cardiff and qualified as a registered dietitian in 2004. In 2016 she began in private practice at Tavistock Physiotherapy Clinic and at Nuffield Hospital Plymouth.

Lucy’s passion for improving healthcare led her in 2017 to apply for and secure a prestigious Health Education England (HEE)/ National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) studentship completing a Master’s in Clinical Research (MClinRes) at the University of Plymouth (First-class degree awarded). 

Lucy now combines part-time NHS employment as a specialist IBD/gastroenterology dietitian with private practice and freelance nutrition consultancy work.

Recognised as a specialist in the management of irritable bowel syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease, diverticular disease and weight management. Lucy completed the King’s College London low FODMAP course in 2012 and using this advanced dietetic approach has successfully advised numerous clients with IBS.  

Lucy is also passionate about weight management and provides bespoke nutritional advice and food planning to help reach weight loss goals and to sustain weight loss.

When faced with illness or a specific health concern, or simply looking to improve overall well-being, interpreting complex information and advice about diet can require specialist help and support which Lucy provides in a non-judgemental supportive environment.
