Speciality Areas

Dr Rachelle Opie is a highly experienced dietitian with a particular passion and keen interest for working in the following nutrition related areas:  

  • Mental health

  • Chronic disease

    • for example, cardiovascular diseases (e.g., heart disease and stroke), and diabetes

  • Pregnancy

  • Postnatal nutrition

  • General lifestyle and healthy eating

Rachelle uses a Health At Every Size (HAES) approach, which includes:

  • accepting and respecting the diversity of all body shapes and sizes 

  • promoting eating for well-being and intuitive eating

  • respectful care

  • promoting enjoyable movement 

  • recognising that health and well-being include physical, social, spiritual, economic, and emotional aspects 

Telehealth Appointments

Rachelle offers telehealth appointments via video-conferencing (Zoom), so you don’t have to attend an appointment in person.  


Telehealth consultations remove the travel costs and wait-time, to create a convenient service for you. This service is especially helpful for people living rurally or interstate, or for individuals who find it difficult to travel to the clinic rooms.


Individuals do not require a Zoom account in order to receive a telehealth nutrition appointment. Individuals can receive these appointments on a desktop, mobile phone or tablet device, using the free Zoom mobile app (for iOS and Android) or desktop application (for Windows and Mac). Once a nutrition appointment is scheduled, patients will be sent an invitation to join a Zoom appointment by email.


Your telehealth appointment is secure and your confidentiality is maintained, as it would be during an in-person (face-to-face) appointment.
