Deborah Allen, rd
I am an HCPC Registered Dietitian (RD) and a BANT registered Functional Nutritionist, with an MSc in Nutrition from the University of Ulster and a Post Graduate Diploma in Dietetics at Cardiff University.
I have a 20-year career history both in the UK and internationally in areas such as research, consultancy, programme management, and clinical practice, including 10 years managing a nationwide dietetic department in the UAE.
My main areas of clinical interest include:
In addition to being a registered Nutritionist and a registered Dietician, I have completed FODMAP training through Monash University in Australia and Sports Nutrition training with the Australian Institute of Sport. I also have worked as a Dietitian and Health Coach for Second Nature, a digital health and behaviour change programme, since 2019 (www.secondnature.io).
Alongside this, I am a qualified yoga teacher, having completed 500 hours of teacher training and additional training in restorative and prenatal yoga.
I like to use a gentle and supportive approach to help you to achieve your best health outcome.
