Meet Dorelle Thompson – Director of Wellness Nutrition Solutions

I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian and a member of the Dietitians' Association of Australia. I graduated from the Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Health Science, Nutrition and Dietetics in 1999 and a Masters of Public Health, Health Promotion in 2013. I am a local to the Fortitude Valley, having lived in the area for 20 years. I have worked in public hospitals and private practice helping clients with many different health conditions. 

As a busy mother of two teenage girls, I understand the challenges involved in getting healthy meals on the table whilst balancing individual needs and preferences, work, social and family commitments. 

From my experience as living as an expat in South America for 10 years, I understand the nutrition challenges faced by people trying to make good food and nutrition choices in a new or different culture. While I may not be the best Spanish and/or Portuguese speaker in Brisbane, I do communicate well with people of different cultures and backgrounds. I have also travelled to USA, Europe and Asia. From my work and living experiences, and Master’s degree, I have a good understanding of the reasons why people develop chronic conditions and how these may be prevented or managed.

Evidence-based practices,
why is it important?

Evidence-based practice is about using clinical reasoning to integrate information collected about diet and lifestyle, health status and symptoms, from scientific research, the practice context and clinical expertise to make decisions about the most effective nutrition treatment for the client. Evidenced-based practice is important because it aims to provide the most effective care available to improve client outcomes without wasting time and money on ineffective treatments.  

At Wellness Nutrition Solutions in Fortitude Valley, we take great pride in using evidence-based practice with the goal of providing effective nutrition treatments. Our dietitian practices thoughtfulness and compassion, utilising your circumstances and culture to determine the best strategies for success. From weight loss, health condition management to better dietary choices, we help you take control of your health and wellbeing.
