Rowen Davison - Newcastle Dietitian

Rowan Davison

Rowan appreciates that individuality influences our health and that a multitude of social and psychological factors influence our eating choices and patterns.

Rowan can help you with:

  • Gut health (IBS, IBD, coeliac disease)
  • Sports nutrition
  • Plant-based eating

Rowan enjoys working with clients to explore these factors, like unjumbling and recreating a jigsaw puzzle, and combining sound clinical nutrition knowledge to develop strategies and plans that align with the desired outcomes for the client.


Scarlett Gray

BNutrDiet (Hons)​

Scarlett is passionate about helping people understand the role of nutrition in their everyday life and by simplifying complex information into practical strategies.

Scarlett can help you with:

  • Gut health (IBS, IBD, coeliac disease)
  • Disordered eating
  • Building healthy relationships with food
  • Sports nutrition
  • Women’s health
  • Food intolerances and allergies

Scarlett’s nutrition theory is that “healthy” eating isn’t what you think it might be, and that nutritional change should work with you not against you.
