Hey, I’m Heather
Registered dietitian based in Belgium. If you’re looking for help and advice about your diet and/or making positive changes for your health, you’re in the right spot!
In addition to helping you make general, healthy nutritional choices, I can work with you on diet and lifestyle changes for a variety of health challenges, such as achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, managing irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diabetes type 2, (risk of) cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure or cholesterol, digestive complaints, and more.
Below you can find out more about how I work.

What you can expect
A personalised, step-by-step approach to make new habits manageable and sustainable.
A diet plan based on your food preferences and how you prefer to eat and cook.
No strict restrictions or rules, food is more than just fuel and should be fun and enjoyable.
More than nutrition – goals will be combined with stress, sleep, and movement habits.

What people are saying…
“For a long time I had been thinking of improving my eating habits and incredibly I found Heather at the moment that I decided to go for this change. Heather’s dedication, attentiveness and tailored advice really encouraged me to adopt healthier ways of eating and with her follow-ups I could really see my improvement in so many areas! I believe that my husband is also more thankful to Heather without knowing… Thank you for the great work and for going beyond and above!”
“I started working with Heather during the Covid-19 pandemic, as I was experiencing low energy due to the lockdown. After starting following her advice on what to increase and what to decrease in my diet, I started feeling my energy coming back day by day, increasing my motivation at work, and pushing me to develop new habits to stay healthy.
Many of these habits are still part of my daily routine and I definitely plan to keep them in the future!”
“After setting myself a variety of goals to take my health more seriously, I decided speaking to a nutritionist was high on the priority list. I had been going to the gym regularly and eating well but still was having some issues with acid reflux, low energy and stomach cramps among other things.
After speaking with Heather, I was able to implement a few small changes that helped manage my acid reflux after months of struggling. […] I was so surprised to realise that there were a few types of food which were regular staples of my diet that were actually causing most of the inflammation and discomfort I had been experiencing.
This awareness has been so helpful with meal planning as I can now consciously edit my recipes to help make them more suitable for my dietary needs. Cutting out the worst culprits entirely has made a massive difference to my day to day and really has kept down the bloat! I’d definitely recommend signing up to Heather’s coaching program. You never know what you’re going to find out about yourself!”
