Bloom Nutrition & Wellness is a clinic where our dietitians specialise in helping people develop a peaceful relationship with food.
This is not a dietetic practice for fad diets or unsustainable changes that will fizzle out within weeks! Instead, our dietitians love to work at a deeper level, building people's knowledge and self-confidence for making positive dietary and lifestyle changes. Our approach to nutrition is to look at the "bigger picture" surrounding food choices and behaviour, such as:

Claire is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian and an ANZAED Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician. She has been a member of ANZAED (the Australia and New Zealand Academy for Eating Disorders) since 2011. Claire has worked on specialist eating disorder inpatient hospital units and day programs, and was previously the Senior Dietitian for the Butterfly Foundation Intensive Outpatient Program. Claire has collaborated on research about the dietetic treatment of eating disorders with the RPA Eating Disorders Day Program, and presented research outcomes at conferences for the Australia and New Zealand Academy for Eating Disorders and the Centre for Eating and Dieting Disorders.
In session, Claire is warm and relaxed, bringing her ever-ready sense of humour to her work. Her treatment approach is characterised by client-led flexibility, focussing upon the needs and readiness for change of each individual person.
Please note that although Claire has studied psychology, she is not a clinical psychologist. Clients in need of a psychologist experienced in treating eating disorders should look at the Inside Out Institute webpage or call the Butterfly Foundation Helpline and ask for suggestions from their practitioner list.
Accredited Practicing Dietitian
Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics. Bachelor of Science (Physiology).
Jessica is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian who has completed extensive training in both the dietetic treatment of eating disorders, and of the "non-diet" or "Health At Every Size" (HAES) approach to dietetic practice.
In the years Jessica has worked as a dietitian she has had extensive experience in providing support for people with a wide range of health issues, including diabetes, high cholesterol, and gut issues. However, during that time she realised she has a particular love of helping people heal from a toxic relationship with food, which "standard" dietetic practice does not address very well.
Jessica has a very down-to-earth style of communication, and in-session, she conveys a knowledgeable but relaxed approach to her work that helps put people at ease.
