An expert with 20 years' experience in dietetic practice.

Lynda worked in the NHS before setting up in private practice in London in 2003, when she developed the programme which is the foundation of London Dietitians.

She qualified in South Africa, with a degree from the University of Pietermaritzburg in 1996, and she set up in private practice there before coming to England to meet family commitments.

As well as being part of the London Rheumatology Clinic at Parkside Hospital and Spire St Anthony's, Lynda practices at the Oncology Clinic at Cancer Centre London and is the driving force behind the continuing development of London Dietitians.

In her experience on the effects of diet, she has seen the difference that diet can make to both chronic and acute conditions.

Diet can have such positive affects on how we feel, whether healthy or battling an illness or a chronic condition, and what we are able to achieve.

Lynda works closely with her team members: Carol Baguley who specialises in Paediatrics, Bridgette Wilson who specialises in IBS & General and Roshni Patel who specialises in Renal & General.
