Gigi’s warm, caring and patient personality allows her to become a competent dietitian working in the community. According to patients’ medical needs, Gigi will listen and understand their eating habits and pattern, tailor-made individual and package dietetics counselling sessions for our customers with the aim to help them regain health as well as enjoying fruitful life. Gigi always creates plans together with her clients to make sure they are satisfied and confident in making lifestyle changes and are able to include their favourite food in a healthy, balanced eating plan, as she believes that creating a sustainable plan is more realistic than giving out perfect meal plans.
