Who we are

Our Philosophy

The PNW Clinic is Australia’s Leading Online Nutrition and Dietetics Clinic. It was established in Brisbane, Australia in 2017 by  Accredited Practising Dietitian Kiah Paetz and has since grown into a team of passionate dietitians specalising in eating disorders and disordered eating, gut and digestive health, plant based nutrition and women’s health.

Our approach will empower you to embrace a healthy way of living through the food you eat and the life you lead. Whether you’re seeing us to improve your relationship with food and your body, resolve digestive issues or optimise your diet, we’re here to support you each step of the way.

 

Our Approach

If you’re sick of feeling out of control around food, not knowing what to eat or simply ready to get your health on track, you’ve come to the right place.

At PNW, our philosophy is grounded in holistic health, also taking into consideration your sleeping and exercise patterns, stress levels, social environment, emotional health and mental wellbeing.

Our dietitians take a weight neutral approach to health. Instead of focusing on weight as a metric of success, we focus on healthy habits and long-term behaviour change rather than weight loss. For our clients, this leads to the most sustainable outcomes that align with their overall health goals. 

We believe that how you eat is just as important as what you eat.

We don’t practice restrictive eating plans, fad diets or cleanses. We believe that you are the expert of your own body and work with you to get in touch with your inherent body wisdom and cultivate a positive relationship with food and your body. 

Our online dietitians work in the areas of eating disorder recovery, gut and digestive health and plant-based nutrition. 

We can can help with:

  • Moving you from feeling overwhelmed and out of control around food to listening to your body’s hunger and fullness cues and feeling confident in your food choices
  • Resolving uncomfortable digestive issues including IBS, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation
  • Optimising your diet for health and wellbeing – whether you choose to follow an omnivore, flexitarian, pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan diet

Our dietitians will give your personalised education and teach you practical skills and strategies to help you achieve your goals in health and nutrition. As dietitians, our goal is to help you be your own personal dietitian at the end of working together with us!

First and foremost, all dietitians are automatically nutritionists however not all nutritionists are dietitians.

Dietitians are the highest form of nutrition credentialing. A dietitian has a university level qualification in human nutrition and dietetics and can prescribe medical nutrition therapy for medical conditions such as diabetes, eating disordrs, heart disease, PCOS and food allergies.

Dietitians are regulated by the peak body, Dietitians Australia and must maintain their credentials by completing a set number of hours of professional development each year.

A person who calls themselves a nutritionist may have qualifications in human nutrition or may have no nutrition qualifications at all. There is no government regulation for the term "nutritionist".

All of the practitioners at PNW Clinic are dual qualified as dietitians and nutritionists.

The number of appointments you will need with your dietitian will depend on your medical condition, goal or reason to seek out the dietitian as well as your current dietary habits and nutrition knowledge.

If you have quite a good knowledge of nutrition and have started making dietary changes, you may only need several dietitian appointments for some fine tuning of your diet.

If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes or high cholesterol your progress may only need to be reviewed every 3-6 months to ensure you stay on track.

However, if you have a complex condition, such as multiple medical conditions, are undergoing treatment for an eating disorder or bariatric surgery, you may need to see the detitian on a weekly or fortnightly basis for many months to help you.

We will discuss what will work best for you during your consultations.

We are a 100% virtual dietitian clinic and all consultations are held online. An online consultation works exactly the same way as an in-person consultation with many of our clients finding it even easier than attending a face-to-face consultation (no time sitting in waiting rooms, trying to find a park or having to spend time driving to the appointment).

Prior to the consultation, we will ask you to complete a new patient form to collect relevant data and understand your goals as to why you have come to see us.

On the morning of the consultation, your dietitian will send you a link to a program called Zoom. You can click on the zoom link from your phone or computer to start your consultation. Zoom will allow you to see and talk to your dietitian virtually face to face. Your dietitian will also be able to share their screen with you during the consultation to show you any relevant resources.

After the consultation, the dietitian will email you with any relevant resources and nutrition plans.

We recommend booking in with a dietitian who best suits what you’re looking for after reading their profile. If you’re unsure who will suit you best, you can contact our admin team admin@plantnutritionwellness.com who can match you to the best team member.

We also offer complementary discovery calls with all of our dietitians so you can see whether you’ll be a good fit to work together. Our team has four dietitians – Kiah Paetz, Megan Boswell, Jade Wrigley and Georgia D’Andrea

The cost of seeing a dietitian varies between AUD $120 - $200 per session depending on whether it’s your first or review session, the dietitian that you choose and whether you're seeing the dietitian under pay-as-you-go, coaching or in a package. All pay-as-you-go session fees are listed in the ‘book online’ link on the ‘Meet our Team’ page.

You can also email admin@plantnutritionwellness.com for our full list of fees.

We provide an invoice at the end of the session which you can then subit to your insurer for claiming, if eligible.

Our online dietitians operate through Zoom, a secure video platform where you can see your dietitian and your dietitian can see you. Throughout the consultation, the dietitian may also share their screen to show you recipes, information or resources.

You will receive a zoom link prior to your consultation which you can simply click on and open up in a web-browser or on the Zoom app if using a iphone/Android device.

We recommend making sure that you have a working microphone and webcam on the day of your dietitian appointment and a good internet connection to reduce the risk of disruptions to your Zoom call.
