Sonya Douglas

Founder & Accredited Practising Dietitian and Nutritionist

Sonya is a leading Accredited Practising Dietitian and Nutritionist with over 30 years of experience. She is the founder of Dietwise Nutrition Clinics, one of Perth’s premium nutrition clinics and is former Head of Dietetics and Nutrition at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. She is a guest lecturer at universities including Curtin and Notre Dame and has consulted widely with the corporate sector including BHP, DÔME and RAC.

Sonya’s mission is to help her clients optimise health and wellbeing by harnessing the power of nutrition as a first step towards self-care. She believes tuning back into the body’s inner wisdom is the key to truly nourish the body and unlock the secret to discovering food and body peace. She is a mum of 4 boys and her Italian heritage explains her passionate approach in using food not only as medicine but as a means to feed, fuel, repair, renourish, connect and bring joy.

After working in several private practices across Perth, Kahlia has joined the team at Dietwise. Kahlia has experience in a range of areas including bariatric surgery, IBS, food intolerances, coeliac disease, cardiovascular health, iron deficiency, vegetarianism and veganism. She has a keen interest in women’s health and fertility and is passionate about helping women feel confident about their food choices and fearless in their own bodies. Throughout her studies, she also conducted research on breastfeeding and alcohol consumption at the Telethon Institute for Kids.

 

Prior to her career in nutrition, Kahlia worked extensively with adolescents with Autism, ADHD and Dyslexia. Throughout this time, she became highly sought after as her passion for supporting learning and gentle-mannered teaching helped her students thrive and fulfil their academic goals. Food was the love language of her childhood home and this has led her towards a lifelong career path in nutrition.
