Helen Barnett Dietitian & Nutritionist

Helen is a University trained Nutritionist and Dietitian with a Bachelor of Science (Uni Medal) and Master's of Nutrition and Dietetics. In 2018, Helen joined Colour City Medical Practice in Orange as a Dietitian, and in 2019 extended her practice to join Dubbo Rehabilitation and Specialist Centre. While Helen has lived in Orange for the last 15 years, she is not new to the Dubbo region, having grown up in Narromine.

As a Dietitian, Helen accepts referrals from all General Practitioners and can provide medicare rebates under these plans. She also provides Private Rebates and is registered with all private health funds. 

Because everyone is an individual and no two lives or households are the same, there is not 1 diet or diet plan that works for everyone. In fact – Helen doesn’t really believe in diets, rather, she is all about sensible, balanced eating. Helen’s training as a dietitian has reinforced her underlying philosophy which respects your thoughts and opinions on what will work for you. She greatly values your insights and her approach is to work with you collaboratively to come up with solutions that you have made together. This way you feel more in charge of your health rather than being dictated to, while she uses her training and the scientific research to guide and support you in your decision making. 

As a Dietitian Helen is trained in a wide variety of areas including:

  • Weight Management - Overweight and Underweight
  • Eating Disorders, Body Image Issues and chronic dieting
  • Vitamin and Mineral Imbalances - e.g. Anaemia, Osteoporosis, Haemochromatosis
