Dietitian Martyna Beloviene

HCPC - DT29192

How your body reacts to food can differ from individual to individual. Having someone with the knowledge to recommend food that fits your unique digestion process is important. Nutrition counselling serves as both preventative medicine and as treatment for current, active health problems without the negative side effects of medications and surgeries, which are increasingly over prescribed.

I work as a Highly specialist Dietitian in a Cygnet mental health hospital and also as a highly specialist forensic dietitian for Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, where my patients are mainly struggling with mental health, personality disorders, disordered eating and weight issues. The biggest challenges I face in my day to day work, is how to translate complex scientific information into bite size, acceptable and easy to understand information, which I absolutely love. People living with severe mental illness (SMI) are at greater risk of developing metabolic syndrome, mainly due to the lack of understanding the importance of good physical health, seeking help in time to prevent further development of illness related to physical health, and due to professionals struglling to support such people with their needs.  One of my tasks is to promote healthy eating habits for people who know nothing or very little about balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

My past experience is working with young people having eating disorders, such as Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and ARFID, and also with older adults having disordered eating issues, or complex health issues where they would need to learn about healthier eating in order to improve or control their symptoms. 

I also offer dietary treatment for IBS with a low FODMAPs diet. 

I have a special interest in gut health. The latest research links the gut microbiome to metabolism, immune functions and autoimmune diseases, as well as mental and brain health and I find it fascinating. I do believe that although mental disorders are of a complex nature, it can be improved through diet quality and focus on your gut health.

For me my Clients are very important. I know how difficult it might be to talk about your eating habits and digestive disorders, and how daunting it might seem to change your lifestyle and achieve your goal. I want to LISTEN what you say and pay attention to that. I promise approachable and friendly consultations. I want you to trust me and have a feeling of not being judged. Also I want to work with you in partnership and guide you rather than just giving you instructions. I will give you resources in a form you could understand.

I think one of the most fulfilling aspects of my role as a Dietitian is to be the one who walks alongside someone in their recovery journey. It is truly rewarding to see someone to re-discover healthy eating, grow in confidence and independence. 

As a registered Dietitian I offer a private, expert and caring service for people who would like to learn more about healthy nutrition, how to live with their illness and/or get rid off/ reduce symptoms, to lose weight or to understand how diet affects our digestive system. I offer group sessions for communities and workplaces. 

Not sure if I could help? Or you would like to know more about my sessions, please do not hesitate to drop me an email and we will arrange a free 15 minute call to discuss your needs.
