Hi – I am Susie Burrell. Dietitian, Nutritionist, Speaker, Author, Lego Lover and Mum of Twin Boys, Gus & Harry. Thank you for visiting my site. I look forward to sharing your nutrition journey.
So a little bit about me
I am a dietitian by trade and studied dietetics at Wollongong University 20 years ago. I studied psychology at the same time and hold an Honour’s Degree in Psychology as well as a Master’s Degree in Coaching Psychology from Sydney University. I have a great interest in the psychology of behavioural change and plan to complete further study in the area of self-control in the near future.
My career started as a clinical dietitian and I spent almost 10 years working at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in the area of childhood obesity. During this time I simultaneously worked in private practice in my own clinic, as well as a sports dietitian and have worked with the St George Illawarra Dragons, Parramatta Eels, Sydney University Rugby and the South African Blue Bulls.
Since having my twins, I have maintained work in my own clinic in Bondi Junction, seeing clients for weight loss, hormone related issues including PCOS and insulin resistance and for sports nutrition.
The other key aspects of my work are in the media and working with food industry. I have been the dietitian at Channel 7 Sunrise for 10 years, write frequently for a range of publications including 9honey, Body & Soul and smh.com.au – view my recent media work.
