I am currently on maternity leave from 01  August 2020 – 01 November 2020 however my partner Kim Hofmann, RD (SA) will be covering my regular patients and will provide nutrition services until my return. Kim has more than 10 years of experience and I have no doubt that you will be in good hands until my return. 

More about Kim Hofmann is a Registered Dietician in South Africa.
Kim knew from a young age that she wanted to work with people, assisting them with their health issues.
After taking a year off to au-pair in Germany, she came back ready to study. She started with a BSc at Wits, majoring in Psychology and Physiology. She then went on to do her honours in Psychology before moving to Cape Town to study Dietetics and Nutrition at UCT.
She particularly loves to work with people who want to lose weight, but can’t seem to keep it off because they are stuck in a diet mentality and their feelings around food have become disordered.
She believes that to be well balanced we need to look at nutrition, exercise, stress (or quietness), as well as our emotions and thoughts. Finding the reasons behind why unhealthy habits are around and is the key on how to change these habits.
She has a successful private practice in Claremont with years of experience and I am so fortunate that she has agreed to cover for me while I am out of action.
She will be seeing clients one-on-one at my office on certain days of the week but also help those who aren’t able to come through via Skype or Zoom (any day of the week).She works with a wide range of people, from those seeking to lose weight to those with special medical needs.
