Helen Barnett

Dietitian & Nutritionist

As an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and member of the Dietitian's Association of Australia (DAA), I am experienced in the Nutritional and Dietary Management of a wide range of health conditions helping you optimise your health, fitness and well-being. As a Dietitian passionately concerned about access to health care for ALL people, it is my intention and hope to create a space in which people feel safe and comfortable to discuss their health concerns that centre around food without the fear that they will be told they need to change their body.

Personalised Nutrition  Counselling

Everyone is an individual! There are so many factors that impact on a person’s health and lifestyle and I understand the need to consider all these issues when working with you.

Regardless of whether you need help with IBS and Gastrointestinal health, PCOS, Food intolerances and Allergies, Children’s nutrition, Cardiovascular health, Eating Disorders or Body Image concerns, or you no longer know what to eat to feel healthy, energised and alive, I work with you in a collaborative and supportive way to help you find an approach to nutrition that supports your personality, family and lifestyle.

My goal is to help you optimise your health and well-being using nutrition. Yet I also understand that your goals along with the challenges you face are unique, and so I work with you to tailor education and recommendations to suit your needs.

Evidence-based Recommendations

As an Accredited Practising Dietitian, I am dedicated to offering a service to my clients that is based on the most up-to-date information and evidence. My aim is to equip my clients with the knowledge and skills so you can achieve your health, fitness and wellness goals in a sustainable way.

I also understand that change is hard. That’s why I take a holistic approach to your care, identifying your needs and taking time to help you find the motivation to make changes.  Together, we set realistic goals while I provide relevant education, support and motivation to help you make sustainable changes. More importantly, I help you discover and trust your own internal intuition about what you need to do to nourish your body.

As a Health at Every Size (R) aligned Dietitian I am trained to put your Health FIRST

This means that I am trained in weight neutral practices and the non-diet approach. In practical terms this means that I treat you for the condition you present with and I do not judge, assume, stigmatise or prejudice people on the basis of weight, body size, shape or otherwise. It is my intention and hope to create a space in which people feel safe and comfortable to discuss their health concerns that centre around food without the fear that they will be told they need to change their body (i.e. lose weight) as well. If on the other hand you hope to improve your health so you can lose weight, it is my hope we can explore non-diet, intuitive, natural eating strategies that support your health and well-being from a place of compassion and self-care.

The best gift you are ever going to give someone – the permission to feel safe in their own skin. To feel worthy. To feel like they’re enough.”
