Nikki Cummings

Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist
Grad Diploma in Dietetics, PhD

Nikki Cummings has over 20 years’ experience working as a dietitian. Her first role was working as a Food Service and Sports Dietitian at the Australian Institute of Sport; Canberra. She assisted in the preparation of our Australian athletes in the lead up to the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.

Since returning to Perth in 2000 she established her own Nutrition business (Optimal Intake) based at St John of God Medical Clinic, Murdoch and more recently the Cockburn ARC (Cockburn Central). Nikki has further training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy and applies the principles of “Health at Every Size” in her work. Nikki has specialist interest and further training in the field of Gastroenterology, pre- and post-Bariatric surgery nutritional management and works as an Eating Disorder specialist at The Hollywood Clinic, Nedlands.

Nikki takes a very practical approach when working with clients to assist in symptom relief and to improve gut health through the investigation of dietary triggers. She also enjoys working with clients to help them build better relationships with food by deciphering nutrition/health messages and untangling the dietary misinformation that is too easily available in the media/internet.

In her spare time, you will find Nikki walking or swimming at the beach with her young son or relaxing with a good cup of coffee in Fremantle.
