As a Dietician Carin’s focus is on supporting people’s physical wellbeing and does not give psychological advice.
She has a passion for wanting every patient to feel heard and cared for. Knowing that the path to achieving their health goals is as unique as they are and that it takes a joint effort to piece the puzzle together. I’m grateful for those patients who challenge and question me – it brings the best out in me. My areas of expertise include gut health, food intolerances, weight management, diabetes and other blood sugar disorders, hypothalamic amenorrhea, and hypothyroidism.
Growing up on a farm in South Africa fostered my appreciation for the outdoors and wholesome food. My journey to becoming a dietitian started in Stellenbosch, South Africa. I gained extensive experience having worked in the NHS as a specialist diabetes dietitian and in more recent years as a consultant dietitian in private practice. My own health journey lead me to broaden my skills and knowledge, in Functional Medicine.
I am a dietetic advisor to PITSTOP, a company which delivers bespoke diabetes training courses. I have an interest in exercise and Type 1 diabetes and was part of an expert working group led by JDRF, who developed the first consensus guidelines on safe exercise for people with type 1 diabetes.
I love breaking down the science into practical steps, while incorporating elements of behaviour design, to allow patients to achieve lasting changes and most importantly feel in control.
