Orla Stone, Dietitian and Nutritionist
BSc and Dip in Human Nutrition and Dietetics
I qualified as a dietitian from Trinity College Dublin in 2001 and since then I have enjoyed a varied and challenging career. Having worked for over 18 years in both the NHS and private sector I have been able to see the benefit that dietary change and nutrition can have on a person’s well-being.
While working in the NHS I covered areas including gastroenterology, allergy, oncology, cardiology, stroke, neonatal unit, epilepsy and the ketogenic diet. I was privileged to have worked with some of the top London consultants and to be at the forefront of current research.
I now prefer to work in private practice where I have developed my interest in mental wellness; sustainable eating; gut health including irritable bowel syndrome; underactive thyroid; cancer prevention; overall nutritional balance, as well as other medical conditions. I have also had the opportunity to work with commercial radio in the UK to produce podcasts on nutrition and mental health.
I am the associated dietitian with The Eaves Counselling and Psychology Centre in Surrey, and I have also worked with large companies to provide nutritional wellness days to their employees and teams.
In 2018/19 602,000 workers were suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety (new or long-standing). In addition, stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 44% of all work-related ill health cases and 54% of all working days (12.8 million days) lost due to ill health. Mental resilience is so important and the role that nutrition and gut health plays in this are to be valued and respected.
I am really pleased to have partnered with Matthew Radley and Associates and to see that they understand and value the importance of nutrition in mental resilience when coupled with coaching.
I have a BSc and Dip in Human Nutrition and Dietetics from Trinity College Dublin. As nutrition is a fast-moving science, I regularly update my knowledge through CPD courses and talks.
I am a member of the British Dietetic Association and am registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). The HCPC ensures that health and care professionals are meeting the expected standards of the profession.
With over 17 years-experience working as a dietitian I am able to bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to your appointment or company.
Working arrangements have changed for lots of people and never has mental resilience been so important for our workforce. With experience of hosting individual appointments and group sessions via online platforms I can continue to provide training in an effective and valued way.
I am fully committed and connected to delivering our brand values:
