Designed for nutrition professionals by a Registered Nutritionist
As a nutrition professional, you need to keep up-to-date on the latest information so that you can help your clients as effectively as possible. That means up-levelling your skills, using up-to-date practice resources, and extending your knowledge. But this takes precious time, of which you have very little to spare. So stop trying to figure it out for yourself and save time by getting exactly what you need directly from a specialist.
What do you need to make your nutrition practice more effective?
About Dr Glenda Bishop
Dr Glenda Bishop is a Registered Nutritionist, neuroscientist, wellness coach and educator. She is also a fully trained and experienced university educator, having worked as a lecturer at Monash University before starting her nutrition practice. Glenda’s own practice, A Less Irritable Life, specialises in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and FODMAPs. In addition to her professional understanding of IBS, Glenda’s personal understanding of the day-to-day challenges that IBS creates stems from her being diagnosed with IBS 25 years ago. Glenda’s mission is to help people with IBS to live a less irritable life – whether by helping clients who have IBS directly or by training nutrition professionals so that they can help clients with IBS in their own practice.
HAPPY NUTRITION PROFESSIONALS
“Before I did Glenda’s course, I could only have the most basic discussion of FODMAPs with a client before referring them on to somebody who specialises in it. In the whole time of doing a Masters of Nutrition, FODMAPs was mentioned in maybe one or two lectures. A large proportion of my clients experience digestive issues yet as a nutritionist you get little training in recognising it or understanding it.
The information in Glenda’s course was excellent. The structure was brilliant, the order that everything was presented in, the standard that it was… it was nothing short of brilliant in my opinion. I got out of the course exactly what I wanted to get out of it. It was absolutely amazing.
If you have any inclination to learn about FODMAPs because you don’t feel that you already know enough, there’s no doubt in my mind that you should do this course.”
SALLY MITCHELL, NUTRITIONIST AT FOOD TO FIT
“I was disappointed that we didn’t cover FODMAPs at university. IBS is extremely common and I think a lot of people will want to experiment with the eating style – a lot of people are going to decide to go low FODMAP without understanding why they would want to do it, so from a CPD point of view I believe a thorough knowledge of FODMAPs is really important. And it’s too big a topic to try to wade through the Monash University stuff by yourself. Just understanding bits and pieces of it would give you an incomplete knowledge and it could be quite dangerous.
Doing Glenda’s course has made me able to consult with people that have to follow a low FODMAP eating style and I now feel comfortable working with these clients. Glenda’s got a very, very thorough knowledge of the low FODMAP diet and I think it’s because she follows the diet herself and knows the potential triggers. I think learning from someone who’s actually living it is excellent.”

“When I did my degree, there was no such thing as low FODMAP, so I did Glenda’s low FODMAP course to update my knowledge in that area. Before that, it would have been in the too hard basket for me. Now I will be able to take clients through step-by-step to remove FODMAPs from the diet, to assess which FODMAPs are triggers and to help clients adapt and manage their new dietary regime.
Glenda was a very knowledgeable, down-to-earth, approachable teacher. Nothing was too difficult a question to answer. And the practical aspects of the course were really useful to experience all of the food restrictions that go hand in hand with the initial phase of the low FODMAP diet… it will make me more empathetic with my clients in the future. Glenda was excellent and if I had her as a lecturer at Uni I’d have been very happy.”
