BHlthSc (Nutrition & Dietetics) (Hons), BNursing
As an experienced health professional and a mother to two young girls, Madeleine is a passionate advocate of maternal and paediatric nutrition. She empathises with Mothers juggling family life, and loves nothing more than helping them regain optimal health without compromising nutritional status.
Having struggled with food intolerances most of her life, she is also enthusiastic about gastrointestinal health and enjoys helping clients with coeliac disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other digestive disorders. She applies the low FODMAP diet in managing some of these conditions and favours a client-centred approach.
Madeleine applies the Health At Every Size (HAES) principles to weight concern, and favours a non-diet approach when counselling clients. She believes eating should be enjoyable, so steers clients away from restrictive eating patterns. Madeleine looks forward to helping you achieve your best health by establishing realistic nutrition goals with you, not for you.
Madeleine also works as Registered Nurse here at Queen St Medical Centre. She has extensive experience in healthcare, having nursed for more than 15 years in Australia and London. Her nursing background made her realise how essential a nutritious diet is to chronic disease prevention and management, which led her to pursue studies in Nutrition.
Madeleine is a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
Madeleine is available for consultation Thursday afternoons (fortnightly). More information can be found on her blog That Healthy Girl.
