FAQ

What’s the difference between a Nutritional Therapist, a nutritionist and a dietician?

A Nutritional Therapist is trained to see patients in a one to one setting and give nutrition advice to optimise health, support weight management, give advice on sports nutrition, fertility and much more. We create an individualized diet plan and lifestyle strategy for your key issues and support you through it. It is a common misconception that this is the job of a Nutritionist.

 get called a Nutritionist all the time and you may even have found this website by searching for a Nutritionist. The truth is a Nutritionist is quite different to a Nutritional Therapist and we do quite different jobs.

A Nutritionist works in non-clinical roles including public health, health improvement, health policy, local and national government, in the private and third sectors; in education and research. Nutritionists are not qualified to treat individuals with health problems in a clinical environment.

Dieticians are different too as they usually work in the NHS, whereas a Nutritional Therapist tends to work privately. Dieticians are also unlikely to advise you on preventative medicine and tend to only see the seriously ill in a hospital setting.
