Rachel is a great dietitian and able to handle difficult cases. She is also passionate about what she does and constantly learning and up to date with all the latest research which is very important to me.
Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about nutrition and diet. Explains things in an understandable way and provides advice and support that other dieticians have been unable or unwilling to do. I cannot recommend Ms Clarkson highly enough.

Cancer Dietitian vs Cancer Nutritionist
One common area of confusion is deciding between a cancer dietitian or someone styling themselves as a nutritionist.
They key difference is that dietitian is a legally protected phrase and so can only be used by someone if they have carried out the requisite lengthy training and are approved.
Nutritionist, perhaps surprisingly, is not a protected term and so anybody can call themselves a nutritionist. You could set up a website today and call yourself a nutritionist.
Of course, this does not mean that all nutritionists are this unskilled, but, equally, there is no minimum level of knowledge. Any dietitian has a high level of knowledge, you are then choosing the right one for you from an extremely strong field. With nutritionists, you are left hoping that the person you opt for is basing their advice on more than just a whim.
Given the importance of getting it right when looking for dietary advice relating to cancer, it is recommended to please choose a dietitian, regardless of whether or not that is Rachel, rather than a nutritionist.
On this site, there is a wealth of information and you may wish to also look at Rachel’s YouTube channel to get more of an insight into her work and ethos.
