Aleeza is a highly specialised eating disorder dietitian.
She graduated cum laude with an Honours degree in Dietetics and obtained a MSc in Eating Disorders with distinction from University College London (UCL). She has also done additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for eating disorders and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) as well as courses in mindful eating and intuitive eating. She comes to The Blue Tree Clinic with 20 years of experience, of which ten are in eating disorders in both the NHS and private practice.
She was the Lead Eating Disorders Dietitian for London’s largest NHS eating disorder service for 7 years and left the NHS in 2020 to focus on private practice and her family. She specialises in anorexia nervosa, bulimia and binge eating disorder. She believes that everyone can achieve a healthy weight and a healthy relationship with food and has empowered hundreds of patients with the knowledge and tools to regain control of their eating, achieve a healthy weight and optimise their physical and mental wellbeing.
Although she studied in London she is born and bred in sunny South Africa and hasn’t lost her South African warmth, humour (and accent).
When not working as a dietitian you will probably find her cooking up a storm in the kitchen, practising yoga, going for afternoon tea with friends or jumping in muddy puddles with her little girl.
Appointments with Aleeza are extremely limited each month due to demand at this time.
