What makes our nutritionist services the best?


Our dietitians are Accredited Practising Dietitians (APD) and Accredited Nutritionists (AN). We are also nutrition scientists with further study in nutrition, biochemistry, microbiology and health science. Tree of Life Nutrition was one of Brisbane’s first private practices, established in 1993.


When it comes to health and diet, you need to know our suggestions are science-derived; sensible and backed by experience in the field. We have tested what we have learnt in theory and continual professional development over many years in research and practice.


All Australians deserve to eat well, feel good and look great! We passionately advocate for the education and promotion of healthy eating across Australia. It is our mission to teach everyone how easy it is to shop, cook and eat nutritious food, and do that in a fun and engaging way!


For a diet to be sustainable, it should work with, not against your lifestyle. To be inclusive, not restrictive, inspiring not boring. It must embrace family life, work limitations and other commitments. We help you make dietary changes which are realistic for your lifestyle.

Online Consults

If you are looking to find an experienced practitioner who offers online dietitian services, we can help. We have great processes to offer remote consultations if you are isolated by illness or distance. Most of our usual in-clinic procedures can be rolled out in a remote setting. If you are isolated for any reason, you should still have access to the very best, personalised nutritionist services. That’s why we are available over telehealth, phone or email when you need us. We also offer telehealth for rural patients under a Chronic Disease Management Plan.
