Why choose a dietitian?
Dietitians use up-to-date scientific research to assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition related problems. ‘Dietitian’ is a legally protected title that can only be used by a suitably qualified professional. Dietitians are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, the statutory body which regulates health professionals. All dietitians are bound by registration with the HCPC to follow agreed standards of proficiency.

Liane Reeves – BSc (Hons) Nutrition, MSc Allergy
I graduated from the University of Surrey in 1996 with a BSc (Hons) in Nutrition with Registration in Dietetics. I then completed an MSc in Allergy through the University of Southampton in 2012. I graduted in 2013 with Distinction and received the Holgate AAIR Prize for excellence in Allergy.
Since 1996 I have gained a wide variety of experience helping individuals manage their conditions through diet in primary care based NHS clinics. I have continued to work part-time for the NHS in Oxford as Adult Allergy Specialist Dietitian as well as running my own practice in Wantage, Oxfordshire.
I am a Diet Sheet Co-ordinator for the Food Allergy Specialist Group of the British Dietetic Association. I am a co-author of the Professional Guidelines for the Dietary Management of IBS for Dietitians, I have co-written and continue to be involved in updating resources on IBS and food allergies used by dietitians nationally.
I will provide dietary advice based on your diet and medical history. It is important to take time to review this in detail as symptoms can overlap between conditions. In some cases, I may ask your GP or Consultant to carry out blood tests to confirm food allergies or check for coeliac disease or nutritional deficiencies. There are no reliable tests for food intolerances however, so the diagnosis is made by exclusion followed by reintroduction to determine level of tolerance.

“Friendly, focused and well- informed advice with clear actions based on research knowledge and experience.” RW
“What can I say, I initially saw Liane on an off-chance that looking at my diet might help with my diagnosed chronic fatigue in some way. In talking to her I also discovered that many other niggling symptoms I have ‘lived with’ were most probably due to IBS and my diet. After following an exclusion diet put together by Liane I managed to eliminate many symptoms and have much improved my energy levels. I only wish I had seen her years ago.” LS
“Fantastic help from someone who has first hand experience herself.” JC
