Private Practice Nutrition Counselling
This is a unique opportunity for a dietitian that has always dreamed of working in private practice but due to family and work commitments has not been able to start a business. This opportunity is a perfect fit for a parent raising a family that would like to work part-time or a mature dietitian that has had a full career in the field of dietetics and is looking for a change or meaningful supplemental work.
- Independent contractor consulting dietitian
- General nutrition counselling dietitian for weight loss, emotional eating, meal planning, family nutrition, menopause and overall healthy eating for prevention and treatment of common lifestyle issues or chronic disease such as heart health and diabetes.
- Availability 2 days per week for bookings (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday are available). Booking times are during normal work day hours (no evenings or weekends).

- Earn higher hourly fees than traditional dietitian public health rates.
- Work with highly motivated clients that are committed to health and want to change their lifestyle. Experience the reward of watching people change and grow over time because of your ongoing counselling advice since you will create longer term relationships than most other dietitian roles.
