Rachel Tutill is an Accredited Practising Dietitian and member of the Dietitian’s Association of Australia. Rachel graduated with a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics (Honours) from the University of Newcastle. Her passion for dietetics stems from an interest in health and wellness and a love of all things food. Rachel provides a personalised approach to nutrition, using her knowledge of diet-disease relationships and skills to tailor advice to meet each client’s specific health needs and goals. Rachel enjoys providing practical strategies to assist her clients to make sustainable, long term lifestyle changes. Rachel will meet with you in an initial appointment to conduct a full assessment of your medical history, social history, food and disease/risk factors, current food intake, eating behaviours and level of motivation for change. She will then offer you follow up sessions to further your progress and provide ongoing support until your health and nutrition goals are achieved.

Some of the clinical areas Rachel commonly treats include:
• Weight concerns
