Karli Battaglia

Special Interests

  • GI disorders
  • Eating disorders and disordered eating
  • Body image and chronic dieting
  • Reproductive health – including fertility, pregnancy and PCOS
  • Diet and mental health

Background

Karli practices from a Non-Diet and Health at Every Size approach, which means she supports her clients to change their behaviours rather than the number on the scale. You won’t find her handing our strict meal plans or pushing to you to lose weight!

Instead, she provides a non-judgmental environment for her clients to learn about nutrition and develop a healthier relationship with food.
She understands that every person’s priorities and lifestyle are different, and she works collaboratively with her clients to develop and individualised plan that will help them to achieve their goals.
