The Mediterranean Diet

Thank you so much for being here!

My greater vision is to make this world a healthier place to live for everyone.

I am a qualified healthcare professional.

I am a dietitian and nutritionist since 2002. I have a Masters Degree in medical science in human nutrition with specialisation in clinical nutrition. I have a PhD in vitamins’ assessment in patients with critical illness. I’m also trained by the Kings’ College London in implementing a low-FODMAP diet in functional gastrointestinal disorders, e.g. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

I am a published scientific author, a multiple-congress’ presenter and have taught as a visiting lecturer at University level.

I have scientific publications in international journals, such as the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and a book chapter in the Encyclopaedia of Cancer. I have taught as a visiting lecturer at the Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh and Glasgow Caledonian University. Over the years, I have presented numerous times at nutritional scientific meetings in the UK and many European cities (travelling is one of the best things about this).

I am registered healthcare professional who always puts your health needs and safety first.

I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council in the UK (they make sure we are at the highest standards within our profession) and I am an international member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (U.S.A.).

I have helped hundreds of people optimise their health through nutrition.

I have worked as a clinical dietitian in the U.K. NHS in weight management, gastroenterology and general medicine. I have also worked as a research dietitian assessing early nutritional support in patients with pancreatic cancer. Plus I have extensive background seeing patients in private care since 2003. I’m based in Glasgow since 2009 where I provide nutrition sessions at the beautiful Glasgow Medical Rooms in the city centre.

I trust and use science, I trust medical nutrition therapy.

…and still, I feel that there is so much more that can be done!

Cooking delicious food with the talented Scottish Michelin-star chef, Nick Nairn.

 I love creative, travel and food photography. Most of the photos on this website are mine! (I also love the portrait photography by my very talented photographer friend Martin Venherm, thank you so much!)

I was born and raised in the beautiful island of Corfu which still remains my personal paradise.

 I like cooking with the radio on and yes sometimes I sing and dance around the kitchen!


 Did I say that I have a massive sweet tooth and desserts are my weak spot?

 Paris is my favourite city and I can speak advanced French too.

 I always wanted to be an actress and I have been in two amateur theatre productions lately. #nevergiveup

I have recently sung Mozart’s Requiem with the Royal Scottish National Opera and Chorus. #soprano
