My name is Sandra Tyrrell, BSc (Hons). I am a HCPC registered dietitian and nutritionist. I have over 16 years' experience working with the NHS in England & Wales, and as a freelance dietitian.
My interest in healthy eating began at a young age. I am fortunate to enjoy a career in this field and to have learnt the importance of diet in relation to the treatment of disease and illness, along with the physical and mental benefits that a healthy diet supports. I understand the importance of listening to the clients ‘needs’ and to tailor a plan that suits them. I feel genuine accomplishment when helping and encouraging clients to achieve their goals, however small or large they may be. I have covered many areas of dietetics within my role. Please take a look at my testimonials below to see some of the people and businesses that I have worked with.
I also have worked for the media, appearing on current affairs television programmes along with writing dietetic related articles. I am trained in counselling, motivational interviewing and I have a professional, approachable manner. I offer face-to-face, virtual, telephone or email consultations.

Learning Difficulties - Healthy Eating
My adult son has learning difficulties, he lives independently with supported care. Sandra helped to guide my son, and the support staff with his meal planning. I was worried as my son was getting older and gaining weight. The staff now have more of an understanding of healthy eating. Together they developed a food plan, that met his likes and choices. Sandras’s communication and understanding for my son was excellent (he can be challenging). She was so kind and patient with him.

I approached Sandra when I was asked to lose weight for hip surgery. Although I had yo-yo dieted for many years, I knew the principles of losing weight but failed to achieve a steady weight due to emotional eating. Sandra helped to guide me and support me, to achieve healthy eating for life. Her approach was encouraging and non-judgemental. I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone who wants to achieve their goal. I have achieved my goal weight and have now had my surgery. Sandra helped to change my life! Thank you, Sandra!
Mrs P.S., Chester
My husband was losing weight and I was worried about him. After visiting the GP, making sure that he had no contributing illness, we discovered that he needed help due to his appetite reducing for various reasons (his anxiety and some dental problems). Sandra listened to him and helped him to understand the reasons for his weight loss, and helped him to make a plan to deal with this. He gained confidence and made some different food choices based on her chats and suggestions with him. I am pleased to say that he took this advise onboard and is now a healthy weight and a happier person. Sometimes I feel that family members listen to other people more than those close to them, but this helps to take the pressure off too!
