Individualised Nutrition Consultations
As an Accredited Practising Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist, Casuarina has the knowledge and skills to work with you to achieve your nutrition-related goals. Casuarina offers consultations in Canberra for a range of areas of nutritional therapy including chronic disease management, healthy eating advice, weight management, special dietary needs and more. Casuarina is an NDIS registered dietitian provider servicing the Canberra region, and can provide you or your loved one with compassionate and high quality nutrition and dietitian services to support you in achieving your goals. Casuarina can also provide home visits, please contact Casuarina directly to discuss this or to book in an appointment.
Recommendations and advice are individualised based on needs, preferences, abilities, lifestyles and goals. You will leave a consultation feeling inspired, motivated and equipped with the knowledge and tools to help you on your journey to better health and well-being.
It is unlikely that long-term results will be achieved by one or two consultations, and as such, review appointments are encouraged to monitor progress and provide ongoing support. This will be discussed with you in your initial consultation.
