Gut Health Clinic

Welcome to the Gut Health Clinic, a dietetic-led clinic for those who suffer from gastrointestinal disorders.

The main goal of the Gut Health Clinic is to help manage gut symptoms, such as:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Gas/wind
  • Altered bowel habit
  • Reflux
  • Nausea

The above symptoms can be stressful, debilitating and socially isolating, and we specialise in science-based dietary interventions to help you identify your symptom triggers. Ultimately we strive to improve your well-being and happiness.

The Dietitian

The service is led by Clinical Dietitian Lorraine Cooney

How it works

  • You will have an initial 60-minute consultation, followed by as many 30-minute review appointments as you require. Typically appointments are 4 weeks apart, but this will be tailored to your needs as everybody’s journey is different!
  • Your dietitian will check and monitor your medical history, gut symptoms, bowel habit, lifestyle factors, dietary intake and eating habits as well as consider any barriers/challenges in order to tailor a programme that works for you.
  • At the end of each consultation, your dietitian will agree your individualised plan, including practical strategies discussed in your consultation, and any necessary supporting resources.

The most important aspect of the plan is that it will be personalised to complement your journey, your experiences, your symptoms and your life!
