Mel Trebilcock


A. D. Nutrition, M. Music, B. Music

Clinical Nutritionist

Mel Trebilcock is a qualified and accredited clinical nutritionist and health educator. She is recognized as an open-minded, client-focused, compassionate practitioner, whose passion is giving nutritional guidance on how to form healthy eating habits that directly affect acute and chronic health concerns.

As a former travelling professional, international Masters student, endurance runner and busy mum, Mel has learned the importance of creating affordable, effective and practical ways to optimise health and wellbeing.  These practices have not only sustained her during her own journey to heal some critical health issues, including correction of hormone imbalances and food intolerances, but ignited her interest in the science and biochemistry of nutrition.  Using current scientific research in therapeutic nutrition, Mel supports her clients with balanced nutrition templates, dietary plans, nutritional supplementation and dietary education, always focused upon each client achieving their optimum health.

As a nutritionist, Mel understands the pressures that a busy, modern life can put on eating habits and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.   Every consultation is focused upon achieving individual health goals, without prejudice, and is committed to the individual’s increased confidence, wellness, vitality and optimum performance.  Recommendations are always made that fit within the patient’s budgetary confines and timelines, while supporting the patient’s journey to a healthier and happier life.

Mel has many areas of interest including:

  • Digestive conditions
  • Sleep disturbances and insomnia
  • Metabolism and weight management
  • Sports performance
  • Stress, low mood and fatigue
  • Hormonal health and fertility
  • Children’s health and behaviour
  • Substance dependency
  • Food sensitivities

The website is a good starting resource for real food recipes that are quick, delicious and easy to make, as well as a site where appointments to see Mel can be made directly.

When she is not working with clients – or spending time with her two sons – Mel is usually in her favourite room of the house the kitchen, happily creating new recipes, or otherwise running beside the Brisbane River, walking her dog or taking time out with a cold-press coffee in hand.


Many Health Funds provide rebates for nutrition consultations, depending on your level of cover, so please check the one you are registered with to see if this applies for you.
