Positive sustainable lifestyle changes that fit

Michelle Sladden – Dietitian

I will help you to make positive sustainable lifestyle changes that fit with where you are at in life to help manage your health. Over my career I have treated people from all walks of life with a varied social background and different clinical conditions. I help you to make goals that are as realistic, positive and achievable as possible.

Since graduating from university 25 years ago I have worked in all clinical areas, both within hospital and community practice settings. I have worked in the UK and Australia both in rural and remote, as well as large metropolitan locations.

I am the mother of two teen daughters, both of whom have coeliac disease and follow a gluten free diet, as do I. This means I have long personal experience of what it means and how it feels to require a diet for clinical care of your health.

I feel fortunate to have such a varied clinical and teaching workload; and can say honestly that after 25 years I still enjoy my job. I gain great pleasure from seeing people (who may initially be reticent to see a dietitian) change to feeling positive and safe with me as their cheerleader and a member of their health support team.

Focussing on the positive clinical outcomes of clients making even small changes to diet and lifestyle is a big part of the satisfaction of this job.

I also understand that gaining trust from clients is very important and I often find that time is well spent getting to know a client just talking about other aspects of their life enables a more well rounded clinical relationship and leads to better more appropriate goal setting to be made.
