What is a discovery call?
A discovery call is a 15-minute call, where we will discuss your fertility journey so that I can get to know you and better understand how your diet and lifestyle may be impacting your ability to conceive or your general health.
Discovery calls are a way to see if we are a good match in terms of working together!
The cost is then deducted from your first session if we are a good fit!

What is the difference between a Dietitian and Nutritonist?
In Australia there is a distinction made between dietitians and other occupations in the nutrition and food science field, including that of a nutritionist.
A nutritionist may be a tertiary qualified nutrition professional that has the expertise to provide a range of evidence based nutrition services related to nutrition, public health nutrition, policy and research, and community health. It’s important to note that the term ‘nutritionist’ is not regulated. Therefore, this title may be used by dietitians, nutrition scientists and nutrition graduates – and also those with very limited qualifications in nutrition.
Dietitians are also qualified to provide this range of evidence based nutrition services, but in addition, dietitians have the expertise to provide individual dietary counselling, medical nutrition therapy, group dietary therapy and food service management.
A dietitian has undertaken a course of study that included substantial theory and supervised and assessed professional practice in clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management. A detailed list of the knowledge, skills and attributes of dietitians in Australia can be found in the National Competency Standards for Dietitians.
DA recognises that the differentiation between nutrition and dietetics is not universal. In Australia all dietitians are nutritionists however nutritionists without a dietetics qualification cannot take on the expert role of a dietitian.
Dietitians in Australia who meet strict criteria are eligible to join the Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) program. APD is the only credential for dietitians recognised by Medicare and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) and many private health insurers.
