PERFORMANCE & GUT DIETITIAN
BHlthSc (Nut & Diet)(Hons), APD, AN
Hannah is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD). Her drive is to work with you to progress you past just ‘better health’ and onto achieving goals you originally didn’t think were possible. She has worked with juniour right up to the worlds best athletes.
One of Hannah's biggest drives is to empower you to learn about food so that you can fuel your body right whilst maintaining a healthy relationship with food.
"When I was younger, I competed in athletics. I was never the best but I loved it. There came a point where I put so much pressure on myself to do well and also look good in those little crop tops and bum shorts. I began to cut down my eating and, in turn, developed an eating disorder. My performance suffered and I couldn't compete or train.
My passion is to work with athletes, male or female, young or old, to help them learn to fuel their body, optimise performance and learn about the incredible functions of food."
Hannah is interested in your lifestyle and takes the time to understand how various emotional, social and medical factors influence your food choices, such as sleep and stress (like who doesn’t want to down a tub of peanut butter when they are feeling low?).
With experience working with specialist doctors, women's health specialists, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists she has built skills in a wide range of areas:
Food and chemical intolerances
Small bowel bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
Mental health and eating disorders
Women's health (fertility, PCOS, endometriosis)
Endurance and ultra endurance events
Athletics (track and field)
Rugby (union and league)
In working with Hannah you can expect to build your knowledge of food, learn to read your bodies signals and build mindset skills to have you achieving goals well beyond your time in session.
