Dorottya Norton Specialist Eating Disorders Dietitian

I have worked in the NHS for 11years in a variety of inpatient and community settings and in private practice for 2 years. I have a specialist interest in complex weight management and in eating disorders. I have considerable clinical experience in working with children and adolescents as well as adults in both these fields, and I offer expertise in supporting clients with a variety of complex clinical needs including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa (BN), binge eating disorder (BED), ARFID, neurodiverse diagnoses and physical health complexities. 

My practice aims to create a therapeutic environment and is informed by psychological approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Family Based Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Emotion Focussed Family Therapy for sustained behaviour change. I offer dietetic consultation as well as a dietetic informed Guided-Self Help approach to treating BED and BN. I am passionate about empowering my clients to implement realistic and sustainable changes that make a lasting difference for long term well-being.
