Fettle & Bloom was launched by Bath-based NHS dietitian Cristy Dean BSc MSc to provide tailored, expert and dedicated support to those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and related gut health conditions. After graduating from the University of Plymouth with a first-class degree in nutrition and dietetics, Cristy spent many years working in a range of NHS gastroenterology ward settings, specialist IBS clinics, university research centres and in the digital health arena as a specialist diabetes dietitian.
Having seen the devastating effects of IBS on patients and the lack of specific support they were receiving, Cristy has since dedicated her career to supporting patients with complex gastro-related illnesses, empowering people through proven, evidence-based strategies that can greatly improve their diets, health, lifestyle and general wellbeing.
As well as running her own clinic, Cristy writes on gastroenterological (gut health) topics, provides dietary advice to cancer patients in her hospital role, educates children and adults on nutrition, and has supported pioneering clinical research into the role of dietitians in helping people with type 2diabetes.
Cristy is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and the British Dietetic Association, and is a member of the Freelance Dietitians Group.
It’s a common misconception that there’s nothing you can do to effectively treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – that it’s up to you, on your own, to figure out a way to manage the condition as best you can.
Having extensive experience and specialist expertise of working with hundreds of IBS sufferers, we know it doesn’t have to be that way.
Firstly, you’re not alone. At Fettle & Bloom, our Bath-based IBS dietitians are here to support you. We understand that every individual’s experience is different, which is why provide a personal approach that will ensure you feel listened to, cared for and supported as we work together to find a solution.
This involves spending time one on one, using evidence-based approaches to get to the underlying causes of your symptoms, and building tailored plans with supporting resources such as apps, recipes and meal plans.
It’s all about giving you the confidence to understand and manage your IBS condition better, so you can get back to living life to the full.
Contact us in whichever way feels most comfortable for you.
