Welcome to my webpage. I am Carien Meyer, a fellow human being, wife and mother, but also a registered dietitian and nutrition therapist.

I help people find peace with food and their bodies and in this way impacting their health in a positive and sustainable way.

I have been a dietitian since 2001 and obtained my BSc (Hons) and MSc in Nutrition & Dietetics at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. I have experience in hospital dietetics, community dietetics and in private practice. I have supervised and lectured dietetic students at university level and have given talks and workshops to people from various backgrounds (e.g. parents, teachers, health professionals, farm workers, community workers and people in recovery from substance use). I currently work primarily in the field of disordered eating and act as a consultant at an inpatient clinic for people recovering from substance use disorders.

I love to help people reconnect with their bodies and re-establish a healthy relationship with food. When the way we relate to food and our bodies improve it is remarkable how many other aspects of our lives are positively impacted. Healthy does not have a certain ‘look’ and is different for everyone depending on their circumstances, challenges and season in life. My approach is to support people of all sizes and all spheres of life to improve their health, and the foundations of Intuitive eating informs all my work.

I value working in a team and liaise with various health professionals in the field such as psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors and other dietitians. Continued education and learning are a priority and I am part of various learning groups for this reason.

The most important team members are my clients. They make the work I do worthwhile and it is a huge privilege to be entrusted with their stories. You will often find me eating with my clients in session-as we explore the various nuances of food and everything associated with it.
