About Dietwise

compressed new prof photo 1

Hello and welcome.  I am Dawn Shotton, founder of Dietwise, and am an experienced Registered Dietitian with a passion for helping people with their dietary goals.  I have been qualified and UK registered for over 23 years.  For the last 15 years of my career I have pursued my passion and interest in weight management and weight loss surgery in both the NHS and through private practice.

I feel a natural empathy and compassion for those who struggle with dietary issues of all types which, I am told, is completely transparent to all those I aim to support. Every day, I dovetail my knowledge with counselling skills I acquired early in my career, a winning combination that make my job very fulfilling.  

I continually seek opportunities to update my practice and learn new skills to ensure the care and advice I provide is of the highest professional standard. I take great pride and strive to provide excellence to all who seek my support.  I attend training courses regularly and am proud to have recently completed FODMAP training to help ensure I am in the best possible place to understand those with food intolerances and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Besides managing Dietwise, I also enjoy lecturing, and provide contract work, in partnership with others, to both public and private industries.  That keeps me busy!

I live at home with my husband and two children, where I encourage a happy, balanced approach to nutrition, health and wellbeing.

I enjoy providing high quality dietary advice that is easy to follow, convenient to access and exactly what you need at exactly a time that suits you. Support without judgement.

I am interested in hearing your personal story, offering support to help you and provide face to face or online dedicated dietetic expertise.

My vision for Dietwise

Dietwise aims to help improve health and wellbeing by bringing affordable, reliable, and expert dietary support, information and training to everybody, wherever and whenever is is needed.

Dietwise Philosophies and values

  • Dietwise believes that everyone deserves acceptance and respect for their individuality.  Dietwise therefore harnesses approaches that help people improve their self acceptance, self confidence and self belief and dovetails these with diet advice to enable people to move forward, more satisfied with themselves, their health and their lives.
  • Empathy and understanding are deeply embedded into the core of Dietwise and drives every function and service it offers.
  • Dietwise is honest.  It recognises there is no quick fix to some dietary problems. The company only ever uses and advocates attainable targets and techniques with proven long term health benefits. 
  • Dietary issues are often multifaceted and complex and will require expert input and insightful management.  Dietwise has a respectful appreciation of the multiple skills and experience that is needed to manage some conditions and especially values partnership working.
  • Dietwise will pursue excellence by measuring its performance against complete customer satisfaction.
  • Dietwise advocates innovation as the key driver of progress
  • Dietwise aspires to be responsive to the needs of its customers by delivering quality services according to their priorities.

I enjoy providing high quality dietary advice that is easy to follow, convenient to access and exactly what you need at exactly a time that suits you. Support without judgement.

I am interested in hearing your personal story, offering support to help you and provide online dedicated dietetic expertise.
