What I do
Hester is a dietitian registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and the Association for Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA). She is an expert in nutrition who will listen, assess, advise and guide you in your journey to a healthier you. She stays up to date with the latest scientific information and ensure my patients receive evidence-based nutrition care.
I provide medical nutritional therapy to patients in medical and psychiatric hospitals in Bloemfontein. Individualised nutritional care is of paramount importance in the critically ill as well as in mental health patients.
I also consult a host of outpatients and continuously follow-up on my patients. I work closely with biokineticists and psychologists who provide support to recovering patients and assist them in achieving their health goals. Healthy lifestyle changes form the treatment foundation for patients with chronic lifestyle diseases.
I educate and empower clients to improve their dietary habits by providing them with science-based nutrition information as well as the necessary support to implement lifestyle changes. I guide my clients through these lifestyle changes by helping them set goals and motivating them to reach these goals.
