My name is Caroline Gillies and I’m a registered dietitian based in the beautiful county of Oxfordshire. I run a private practice out of The Witney Health Professionals Centre, located in the market town of Witney.
Why the pineapple? Well, although I now call Oxfordshire home, I was born and brought up in a part of South Africa famous for its tropical fruit farms and so the pineapple is my symbol for my love and passion for good food and my commitment to helping others enjoy the benefit of good health.
To live well, you have to eat well. But that is no easy task in a world where we are constantly exposed to misleading nutritional claims contained within the media from so-called experts who are not qualified to provide the best advice.
As the expert in food and nutrition, you can trust in my ability to provide you with the most up to date, evidence-based, nutritional information, which, when properly applied can change your life for the better. Through a process of comprehensive consultations, I provide tailor-made nutritional advice designed to meet your individual needs.
Since graduating from the University of Cape Town in 2007, one of the world’s leading centres of medical research and teaching, I have been fortunate to build an extremely wide experience base. My first position was in the immensely challenging environment of a poorly resourced community hospital in rural South Africa where my main concerns were conditions related to TB, HIV/AIDS and malnutrition. In 2009, I moved to the UK to work for the NHS as a community dietitian in a wide variety of clinical settings and conditions, throughout the Home Counties and the Midlands, working with both adults and children alike. This continuing experience has enabled me to build an extensive expertise and to remain up to date with the latest developments in the field of nutrition.
