Talia Cecchele, Founder & Big Dreamer
Registered Dietitian & Nutritionist (BNutrDiet)
A passionate foodie and globe trotter, Talia packed up her bags and moved from Australia to the UK in 2018. Now calling London home, she is the founder of Talia Cecchele Nutrition and works part-time in London's leading private mental health hospital on a specialist eating disorders unit.
Talia has spent almost 9 years supporting people to improve their health and it was by chance that she fell into the specialist area of eating disorders. She has worked with hundreds of women and men to help them reverse the negative influence diet culture, nutrition misconceptions and fad diets have had on their relationship with food.
Talia offers a compassionate, empathetic and realistic approach to nutrition. She doesn't believe in restrictive diets (all the peanut butter please) and lives life by the mantra that change doesn't happen in your comfort zone! Give this big dreamer a bowl of porridge and an oat latte and she'll be ready to take on the world (or maybe just the latest influencer promoting a detox diet).

Maeve Hanan, Clinic Dietitian
Specialising in disordered eating, Maeve is passionate about supporting those who want to improve their relationship with food and develop more food freedom. She has a range of experience working in private clinics and for the NHS.
Since 2015, Maeve has been sharing evidence-based nutrition messages on social media, which really opened her eyes to the amount of faddy and harmful diet messages people are exposed to. This experience, along with her long-standing interest in the psychological side of nutrition, motivated her to focus on helping people to break free from the shackles of diet culture.
Maeve works in a compassionate, non-judgemental and weight-inclusive way. She has also completed additional training in a variety of areas including: eating disorders, intuitive eating, IBS and psychological techniques to support clients in making long-lasting changes. Outside of work, Maeve enjoys going for walks, watching comedy shows and musicals, and of course, enjoying tasty food and exploring new recipes!

Andrea Clares, Clinic Coordinator
Registered Associate Nutritionist (ANutR)
Andrea started her journey at TCN nearly a year ago as a dedicated intern whose passion for food, health and nutrition has shone through in all of support that she has been providing to the team. She now steps into the role as our clinic coordinator and content whizz!
Her mission as a non-diet nutritionist is to empower those struggling with their relationship with food to reclaim their freedom around food, to lose the fear and guilt from eating, and to make peace with their unique and talented bodies.
Andrea describes herself as a determined, organized and, perhaps often too perfectionistic Mediterranean soul. She loves spending time outdoors connecting with nature and friends, exploring the world, its culture and boundless delicious foods.
