Your qualifications, relevant skills and experience
Meyya obtained her Bachelors and Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics at Curtin University. She holds a full accredited practising dietitian registration with Dietitians Australia (DA).Her areas of interest include paediatric nutrition and chronic disease management.
Meyya is passionate about supporting families to create positive mealtimes and early intervention nutrition. She is trained in the AEIOU approach to feeding which is a responsive feeding approach that offers a highly successful method for integrated treatment of infants and young children with mild to complex neurodevelopmental and physiological concerns.
Meyya integrates this approach along with her experience working with a broad spectrum of children in ensuring success with children’s eating habits, interest in food, positive mealtimes, reduced anxiety around new food and achieve adequate growth and development. This essentially widens the range of foods tolerated, ability to enjoy family meals, reduced salt and sugar intake and be at a healthy weight.
Chronic disease management in adults
Meyya has worked with a range of individuals presenting with overweight and obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular concerns, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), food intolerance, eating disorders and other gastrointestinal conditions. As an experienced dietitian, Meyya uses a weight-neutral and lifestyle-inclusive approach to her interventions rather than putting her clients on a diet. She strongly believes in sustainable changes and tailors each and every strategy around an individual’s circumstance and food preference, which allows her to provide the best for her clients to succeed. She accepts Medicare referrals and does in-clinic and Telehealth sessions.
