Coffs Coast Nutrition is the local area’s most trusted nutrition and dietetics practice. Our team provides individualized nutrition, exercise and wellness advice in a supportive, caring and non-judgmental environment - in person and via telehealth (phone or Zoom / video). Our holistic approach is designed to help you achieve the best possible result. We also offer a greater range of appointment days and times than other nutrition practices in the Coffs Harbour area.

Coffs Coast Nutrition is a small local business. We don't employ physiotherapists, massage therapists or occupational therapists, however we are happy to work alongside other allied health professionals or refer you to the appropriate person. The fact that we are a small business is an advantage because it means that you will receive more personalized attention than if you were to attend a bigger clinic that employs a large number of staff. Our dietitians and personal trainer are also highly qualified and experienced.  

Coffs Coast Nutrition owns an AlterG anti-gravity treadmill which uses state of the art NASA technology to reduce loading during walking and running. This technology is generally only available in major cities (Coffs Coast Nutrition has the only anti-gravity treadmill between Coffs Harbour and the QLD border). The AlterG treadmill is NOT your typical treadmill. It uses differential air pressure to enable pain-free walking or running at 20-100% body weight. This equipment is utilized by people who would otherwise find exercise too painful, however it is also used to enhance sporting performance by top athletes. For more information: click on the 'AlterG' tab (at the top of our home page) and watch the short videos.

Our Nutritionists / Health Coaches are available by appointment during week days. We also have some weekend and after hours appointments.   In view of COVID-19 our dietitians also offer phone / remote video / Zoom consultations. 

Our personal trainer is available for one-on-one sessions (by appointment) 7 days per week. You do not need to see our Nutritionists to attend PT sessions (although there are benefits to combining both nutrition and exercise). You have the option of enjoying either outdoor training sessions or using our private studio gym in a COVID-safe environment where it will be just you and our trainer.   

We have implemented strict hygiene standards with both our staff and clients. Please read the sign on our door before entering and follow all instructions. If you or a family member are unwell you MUST reschedule your appointment. Alternatively we can arrange a phone or Zoom consultation.

  • Sports nutrition for improved health and performance 
  • Anti-inflammatory nutrition
  • Food and mental health 
  • Chronic medical conditions
  • Weight management
  • Bariatric surgery

Louise is available for both telehealth consultations (via phone or Zoom) as well as in-person / face-to-face consults.

She is the area's most experienced and qualified private practice dietitian and is well known for always treating people with compassion and empathy. 

Unlike other dietitians in Coffs Harbour, Louise has both personal and professional experience with the low FODMAP diet, RPAH Elimination Diet / Failsafe Diet and gluten-free eating. 

IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME (IBS), functional gut disorders, bacterial overgrowth and gastric motility issues are specialties. Louise is passionate about helping people who suffer from symptoms such as diarrhoea, constipation, abdominal pain, wind, bloating, reflux, nausea and fatigue, with many of her clients achieving life-changing results.  

There are plenty of nutritionists and dietitians who provide advice re IBS, however this is a specialized area, so if you want the best possible results it is important to see the right person. That means seeing someone who specialises in this area and has BOTH professional and personal experience in gastrointestinal conditions. 

Louise is the most experienced and qualified IBS and FODMAP dietary specialist on the Coffs Coast.  She has completed studies through Monash University regarding the treatment and diagnosis of IBS, as well as implementation of the low FODMAP diet and has also attended numerous other IBS courses and seminars which means that she is able to provide up-to-date information. Her consultations are longer and more in-depth than most other dietitians in the Coffs Harbour area as she understands the importance of listening to what people have to say, rather than simply providing generic information. There is so much more to IBS than just completing a course!

Louise has extensive experience with the RPAH elimination diet and she can also discuss other medical conditions that you may not be aware of which sometimes mimic IBS and need to be ruled out. 

Louise has a special interest in anti-inflammatory nutrition, the gut microbiome and the link between dysbiosis and mood disorders (anxiety and depression), autoimmune disorders, arthritis, IBS, inflammatory bowel conditions, chronic fatigue, weight management, diabetes, heart disease, sporting performance etc. 

If you are interested in gut health, we can also refer you for microbiome testing. This provides details regarding the types of bacteria in your gut so that personalized dietary advice can be provided.  

Louise is a member of the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ALMA) which supports GPs and health professionals in the management, treatment and prevention of lifestyle-related diseases.     

Louise has a strong interest in weight management and has motivated countless people to lose weight and keep it off. Her research into weight loss and fad diets was published in a scientific journal and received widespread media exposure. For the past 16 years Louise has also supported people who have undergone BARIATRIC SURGERY, to ensure that they achieve the best possible outcome from their surgery.

Louise is the only ACCREDITED SPORTS DIETITIAN on the Coffs Coast. She has also completed the Level 1 Triathlon Coaching Course as well as Level 2 Coaching Principles through the NSW Academy of Sport, in addition to her personal training qualifications. She has carried out additional training through Monash University involving the treatment of exercise-induced gastrointestinal syndrome in athletes.  

She has had the privilege of providing nutrition advice (in person and via email, phone and Zoom) to athletes from a variety of different sports. Prior to injuring her back Louise competed in triathlons, in events ranging from sprint (500m swim, 20k bike, 5k run) to Ironman (3.8k swim, 180k bike, 42.2k run). An in-depth knowledge of sports nutrition played a big part in her numerous wins and placings during her time in the sport.  

Louise enjoys the relaxed lifestyle that comes with living on the beautiful Coffs Coast, and although no longer able to compete in triathlons due to injury, she keeps fit by cross training with her husband Col, and running on Coffs Coast Nutrition's AlterG anti-gravity treadmill.
