Informed Heath Nutritional Wellbeing Centre

Our Nutritionists Fiona and Rebecca will help you achieve your health goals. Our small team aims to provide a supportive, nurturing, informative and ultimately healing experience for you. You will learn how to nurture and nourish yourself to health. We use a combination of nutritional medicine, counselling and coaching techniques.

You will learn very practical information on health and nutrition and if required, strategies around stress management and emotional eating.

  • Have you tried every diet?

    At Informed Health Nutritional Wellbeing Centre, we have created Your Ultimate Wellbeing Program which equips you with the priceless knowledge of how to eat well for life. You will learn how to connect with and support your body to help you. You will also learn the power of your narrative and how it contributes to your results or lack thereof. Of course we will teach you all about healthy eating, including having a healthy digestive system and microbiome. We provide you with our Nutritional and Recipe Guide and for those doing Your Ultimate Wellbeing Program, our Ultimate Wellbeing Guide (both written by our Nutritionists and recently updated).

  • Our services are claimable through some health funds

    If you’re in a private health fund and have nutrition included in your
    policy then our services are claimable.

  • You’ll get understanding and empathy

    Fiona has battled with weight problems at various times, thyroid disease, auto immune diseases, migraines, food sensitivities and has even had several small strokes in her early twenties.

    “My health journey inspired me to help others". I am now a qualified Nutritionist, but in many ways, my early health journey taught me far more than a textbook ever did.“I never judge - I’ve walked on that rocky road back to health myself”.

  • You will be dealing with nutritional experts

    Fiona and Rebecca are qualified and experienced Nutritionists.

  • You’ll feel empowered!

    We provide you with guidance, education, advice and encouragement so that you can make your own decisions. It’s about giving you the power to take charge of your own health so that you don’t feel helpless and powerless when dealing with health professionals.

  • You’ll get a holistic approach that achieves results

    We will take the time to ensure that we fully understand your needs; and also ensure that you fully understand what needs to be done to get results. We are holistic in our approach - we treat the whole person not just the health problem.

  • Your treatment plan will be tailored to your specific needs

    You are totally unique, that’s what makes you wonderful! And because you are unique, so too is your treatment plan. Your treatment plan will be tailored specifically to your particular circumstances and lifestyle.

  • We can help you to reduce the need for strong medications

    If you want to lose weight, manage cholesterol or regulate your blood sugar or control your mood without using strong medications, there are ways to do this. We can show you how. However, we will never interfere with what your Doctor has prescribed or ask you to stop taking your medication. We are qualified to prescribe supplementation safely taking your medications into account, we are also knowledgeable about how your medications work and what kind of nutritional deficiencies are caused by certain medications.

  • You will be listened to with undivided attention. We will be there for you

    Sometimes clients come to us because they feel that they simply haven’t been listened to before. Many have been asking for help for a long time and their concerns have been dismissed, or have been told that they simply have to "live with" their symptoms. They are so happy to finally be taken seriously. We often hear "I felt like I was going crazy". People tell us that they are so happy and relieved to find answers and solutions to things they have been told to live with! Although we love using nutritional medicine, and understand the vital importance of nutrition for health, we don't limit our treatments to nutrition, it is just the starting point.

  • You can connect with us through social media

    Many people like to get to know someone through social media before making contact. If this is you, then feel free to connect with us via FacebookTwitter and Instagram for health tips and the latest news on health and nutrition. We look forward to connecting with you!

  • Your medical regimen will not be compromised

    Together, we will work in support of your medical treatments, not in competition with them. Your medical treatments will never be interfered with, and nor will we recommend changes that will compromise their effectiveness.

  • You’ll no longer be confused about nutrition, ever again!

    We have a very different approach to nutrition! When you come to visit us, we will myth-bust a lot of nutrition stories. You’ll walk out of our clinic with a correct understanding of nutrition for life. We also know that while nutrition is a foundation for health, it is certainly not just about nutrition. Many of us know what to eat or do; so why don't we all do it? We specialise in exactly that; what gets in the way, why don't we make better choices for ourselves, even when we know better?

  • You’ve found someone who can actually HELP you!

    At the Informed Health Nutritional Wellbeing Centre, you’ve found people who genuinely care and who want to help you achieve your health goals. You are not simply just another client; you are an important individual who deserves our attention and time. If you come to us for help, you’ll get it. It’s as simple as that! It's your turn...
