Evidence-based Supportive Nutrition Counselling

Clinical Dietitian providing compassionate and supportive nutrition counselling and treatment for adults and adolescents.

What I offer

I am a Credentialed Eating Disorder Dietitian and work with adolescents and adults to connect with their body and work towards food/eating confidence.

I offer individual sessions with appointments available in clinic or via telehealth.

I love supporting:


You will receive a personalised approach focusing on addressing issues related to eating and body image.

Along with my clinical dietetic expertise, you will be offered input from psychological treatments to enrich your interaction. The approach to treatment delves beyond the mere “what” you eat and will explore the “why” and “how”.

I strive to empower you to adopt a more intuitive and self-managed approach to eating, enhancing both your physical and mental well-being.

Adolescent and young adults

For parents and carers alike, it’s deeply concerning when a young individual begins to restrict their food intake, depriving their body of essential nutrition.

I recognise that, for young people struggling with an eating disorder, the most effective approach involves harnessing the support and resilience of the family to facilitate their physical and mental recovery.

I offer valuable guidance and assistance to parents and carers, ensuring that their young one consumes the necessary meals and snacks to achieve a complete daily nourishing intake and move towards recovery

Hi there, I’m Nikki Cummings from Optimal Intake

Numerous factors can contribute to difficulties with food and eating, but I firmly believe that by gaining self-understanding and recognising how your mind seeks to protect you, it’s possible to cultivate a healthy relationship with food and, most importantly, trust in yourself.

I’m an experienced clinical dietitian and offer my extensive knowledge and practical skills when working with individuals presenting with all types of eating disorders or disordered eating. Whether you are struggling with food-related challenges, either stemming from long-term dieting or feeling controlled by thoughts surrounding food, I am here to help you.

I hold profound respect for the bravery involved in contemplating seeking help and I am ready to support you in taking the next step towards recovery.
