I always recommend Red Pepper Nutrition. I have worked with them for over 4 years, mainly with Siân Riley. They really understand our clients and the cognitive and social complexities of brain injury. They see the whole picture and take a holistic approach, working to our clients’ strengths.
I really like the way they think outside the box. They are not constrained by sticking to the rules but have a very flexible approach and will try different ways to help the client.
I find Red Pepper Nutrition are very much team players. They listen to other therapists and professionals, and then work with us to jointly solve the client’s issues and support their goals. They come to meetings armed with lots of information and are good at explaining their goals, such as the need to prevent diabetes or further health problems.
I’m also impressed at the training they provide to support workers, which is crucial as sometimes clients cannot estimate what to eat or reason why they should eat some foods and not others. The dietitians at Red Pepper Nutrition are very good at training support workers in an easy and practical way about how to creatively help their clients comply with the diets they need to follow.
Red Pepper Nutrition are working with one of our clients, a teenage girl with a head injury. Sian has been making great inroads with her, focusing on helping her understand what healthy eating is, about nutrition and eating the right food to support her medical issues. Sian has been very patient and is really helping her and indeed the whole family – even the client’s mother has lost weight after following Sian’s advice.
I enjoy working alongside the dietitians at Red Pepper Nutrition. They form a partnership with the client and are very friendly and easy going, able to adapt themselves to people with different communications abilities.
If you need a dietitian, I would always recommend Red Pepper Nutrition.
